Former liberal politician and female icon Julie Bishop has further cemented her celebrity status by scoring her very own Barbie doll.
According to The Sydney Morning Herald, Barbie creators Mattel, created the Barbie doll in Bishop’s likeness to honour her achievements.
Unfortunately, the Julie Bishop Barbie won’t be for sale. Instead, the one-off doll was made to announce Bishop as Mattel’s 2021 Australian role model of the year.
Bishop, who was once Australia’s Deputy Prime Minister, has had a lifelong career in politics and is now the Chancellor for The Australian National University.
Her very own Barbie doll is dressed in a replica of the iconic Armani outfit she resigned from politics wearing in 2018.
The former politician has always been unapologetic about her love for fashion. Who could forget those iconic red high heels that stood out in a sea of black men’s shoes when she resigned?
And yes, the Bishop Barbie is even wearing a pair of red high heels.
Speaking to SMH, Bishop said: “Knowing how much Barbie had meant to me as a little girl, knowing how Barbie had evolved into this doll that inspired young girls to choose fascinating careers, I jumped at this opportunity.”
