Laverne Cox is in her plastic fantastic fantasy this week after Mattel released an official Barbie doll in her likeness as part of their Tribute Collection.

Featuring a red leather bodice that flows into a light tulle gown all covering a silver bodysuit, the doll is the first of its kind to be modeled after a trans woman.

It’s giving “Barbie Tingz”, it’s giving Life Size (2000), it’s giving “The dolls are the dolls” but literally.The doll is not only a win for representation in pop culture but a celebration of the accomplishments of Cox as a trans trailblazer.

The Disclosure creator and Inventing Anna star has achieved a museum’s worth of firsts for trans representation in her career: the first trans acting nominee at the Emmys, the first trans person on the cover of TIME, the first trans person to play a series regular trans role on U.S.
