Ashley Graham is a model and body activist - oh and three times Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover model. Ashely was presented with the doll as a gift on Monday at Glamour's Women of the Year Event in Los Angeles. Her doll was made to promote body acceptance, positivity and female empowerment.

Graham commented: "We need to work together to redefine the global image of beauty and continue to push for a more inclusive world," Ashley said in a statement. "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."

And no, this Barbie doesn't come with thigh gap and unrealistic expectations for women.

Thighs touching, round hips, arms and tummy!! Thank you @Mattel and @Barbie for immortalizing me into plastic! ??? #beautybeyondsize
