Laverne Cox is getting a Barbie doll for her 50th birthday.
The Emmy-award-winning actor and LGBTQ activist is being honored with a Barbie in her likeness as part of the toy’s Tribute Collection.
The doll comes dressed in a red ballgown over a silver bodysuit, high-heeled boots and silver earrings.
Cox said it’s an honor she’s wanted for a long time.
“It’s been a dream for years to work with Barbie to create my own doll,” Cox said, according to NBC News. “I can’t wait for fans to find my doll on shelves and have the opportunity to add a Barbie doll modeled after a transgender person to their collection.”
Cox told E! News that she wanted multiple outfits for her doll but to keep it at a reasonable price point they could only do one.
They came up with a look that can change.
“She gives you a catsuit fantasy, honey,” Cox said, according to E! News. “Transgender Barbie is in effect. She’s giving you looks. She’s giving you everything.”
Cox is the latest in the Tribute series of dolls that include Lucille Ball and Queen Elizabeth II, USA Today reported.
