Glamour partnered up with Mattel, choosing Ashley out of all the honorees for an official Barbie doll. She joins women of influence and prestige like Ava DuVernay.
Ashley told Fashionista.com that Mattel was open to her insight and feedback. They took 360 degree images of Ashley and requested her input on what her Barbie should wear.
“My only prerequisite was that my thighs touched.”
The curvy Barbie in Ashley’s image is significant for women and little girls. The average U.S. woman is a size 14, so having a Barbie that’s thicker and has body, is great for further representation of women in one of the biggest brands that impact women and girls.
