Gigi Hadid has her own Barbie doll
What a way to commemorate the model's appointment as global brand ambassador of Tommy Hilfiger
Can you believe it's been over a year since Gigi Hadid released her first capsule collection with Tommy Hilfiger? Three runway shows later, the 22-year-old model has been honoured with her very own Barbie doll.
The official doll wears a look from Tommy x Gigi AW16 – they're the exact hoodie, shorts and sneakers that Gigi wore to close the show. But this isn't her first encounter with Barbie.
In February, the Barbie Style Instagram account released a series of photos of Barbie 'attending' the Tommy x Gigi SS17 runway show and meeting Gigi in Venice Beach, California. Of course, that Gigi doll was a mock-up, so naturally the model was over the moon about it becoming a reality.
"I was so honoured and thrilled when the first #TOMMYxGIGI Barbie came to the Season II show... & I'm beyond excited that now you can have Gigi @Barbie just in time for the holidays!" Gigi wrote on Instagram. "Thank you so much to my @tommyhilfiger family & @Mattel for this amazing opportunity!"
The TommyXGigi Barbie doll costs US$50 (approx. RM210) and is now available for pre-order online at barbie.com. The doll is also available at select Tommy Hilfiger flagship stores in London, Paris, Düsseldorf, Amsterdam and New York.
