No thigh gap - Ashley Graham Barbie
Curvy supermodel Ashley Graham is being named one of Sports Illustrated's 2016 rookies and starring in a DNCE music video. She has been a force to be reckoned with in the fashion industry. Graham will also be honored with Glamour's Woman of the Year Award for her work as a body activist.
Mattel decided to make a Barbie after her. Ashley Graham zeroed in on her Barbie to wear a sparkly Opening Ceremony bodycon dress, a Sonia Rykiel cropped jean jacket decorated in patches and spiky Pierre Hardy boots — an outfit she'd worn herself in the past.
Graham also had another request for her doll: no thigh gap.
"She had to have her thighs touch. No ands, ifs or buts about it. And I asked for cellulite but obviously plastic and cellulite don't go hand in hand."
"It was important that the Barbie resembled me as much as possible. The thighs touching was one way to show young girls that it's OK for your thighs to touch, despite society saying that a 'thigh gap' is more beautiful."
