After becoming the first Black female Principal Dancer with the American Ballet Theatre, Copeland has showed no signs of slowing down her greatness. She’s continued to secur endorsement deals, land new projects and inspire a whole generation of Black girl ballerinas. And now, those little girls will be able to see Ms. Copeland in a whole new way. Misty is now a Barbie Doll!
Mattel has announced that the stellar dancer is now their newest doll.
As the first African American female Principal Dancer with the prestigious American Ballet Theatre, Misty Copeland is an inspirational star, paving the way for future dancers all over the world! Her fire red bodysuit, with sunburst orange tulle cutouts, stretches over her perfectly poised body, while layers of red and orange tulle tease a luxurious red tail. A vibrant tulle headpiece tops off her elaborate look, adding drama and flair. The doll features a brand-new ballerina body, with a face sculpted to Misty’s likeness!
And just as fast as they announced it, Mattel sold out of the highly anticipated doll.
Hopeful they restock soon, but in the meantime check out more pics of the gorgeous doll below.
