We’ve seen Zendaya, Beyonce and Ashley Graham immortalized by Barbie before, and now the OG blonde bombshell has a new A-list pal – Gigi Hadid. To celebrate the Tommy Hilfiger X Gigi Hadid show taking place in Los Angeles this week, Mattel have created a mini me of the model. Hadid made the reveal on her Instagram, sharing a picture of her doll strutting alongside Barbie down a palm tree-lined, LA beach. “Can’t believe that’s me !!!!!!!” she said. “Thank you for this honor #Mattel @tommyhilfiger ❤can’t wait to have #BARBIE join us at the #TOMMYxGIGI show tomorrow!”

From the softly arched brows and the pillowy nude lips to the softly-lined eyes and that famous milky skin, the makers Mattel have totally nailed Hadid’s sought-after signature beauty equation. Even her sun-kissed, long bronde hair had all the bounce and body of the life-sized version. In fact, the result is so on point, we wonder if Mattel hit up Hadid’s make-up artist, Patrick Ta and hairstylist, Jennifer Yepez for their glam squad beauty direction? With Hadid hinting that Barbie will make an appearance on the #tommyxgigi runway tomorrow, the fashion and beauty flock are primed to embrace this new set of BFFs.
