New York designer Christian Siriano is known for his red carpet looks, but now he has wowed everyone with his new celebrity-inspired Barbie collection! The Project Runway winner wanted to take his eye of designing for different body types to a new level. Barbie has been known for her slim figure, yet Siriano was inspired to take specific real life red carpet looks and create a doll version of them! Siriano's mission is for young girls to see the Barbies and feel included when it comes to their own skin tone and body.

The five dolls, which were created with Mattel, were inspired by Sarah Hyland, Leslie Jones, Solange Knowles, Laura Osnes, and a piece from Siriano's 2018 Resort collection. In order to get the full picture, here is a side-by-side image of Leslie Jones at her 2016 Ghostbuster's Premiere and Sarah Hyland at the 2011 Emmy Awards.
