Barbie Made Plus Size Model Ashley Graham A Doll With Thighs That Touch [PIC]

I love Ashley Graham‘s Barbie! Mattel made the gorgeous plus-size model into a doll, Sports Illustrated reports. The best part is the thighs touch! Never thought you’d see that, huh? Turns out the body activist insisted on it.

“It was important that the Barbie resembled me as much as possible,” Ashley said in a statement. “The thighs touching was one way to show young girls that it’s okay for your thighs to touch, despite society saying that a ‘thigh gap’ is more beautiful.”

She added, “We need to work together to redefine the global image of beauty and continue to push for a more inclusive world. I’m thrilled Barbie has not only evolved their product, but also has continued to honor women who are pushing boundaries. It’s an honor to be immortalized in plastic.”
