Some would say that the highest celebrity honor is earning a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, casting your handprints in a namesake slab of cement—but we think there’s a form of immortalization that beats even that: having a doll made in your likeness.
Throughout the years, Mattel and fellow toy companies have turned the most high-profile American figures into plastic toys for pop culture-obsessed children, adults, and doll collectors.
Most recently, the company created a Barbie in Ashley Graham’s likeness, which the plus-sized model ensured was made sans thigh-gap. But Graham is far from the first to receive such an honor—the tradition has been in place since 1967, when Twiggy was introduced to the Barbie family.
