Lady Gaga is all set to get a Barbie makeover. Mattel announced that the toy company will produce a limited-edition Lady Gaga celebrity doll as part of the Monster High doll line on Friday. The doll has been designed by the singer and her costume designer sister Natali Germanotta.
The doll will look like Gaga and capture her eccentric sense of style that defines her and encourages girls and boys to embrace what makes them unique. The company said that there is a demand from Gaga’s fans to dress up her doll in a fierce fashion that the singer portrays on a regular basis.
In fact, Mother Monster’s Born This Way Foundation partnered with Monster High, Mattel’s twin doll line, for the first time. The Kind Monsters movement launched on Friday inspire fans of the 29-year-old singer to create a kinder and more accepting world. All proceeds will go to the Born This Way Foundation.
The movement is encouraging fans and youngsters to commit to contributing to a kinder world. People, who participate in the campaign will get a chance to win one of the first 100 dolls when it is released. Though the doll has not yet been created, the silhouette of it has been unveiled by Mattel.
However, the Lady Gaga Barbie doll is scheduled for launch only this fall. The “Cheek To Cheek” singer’s 23-year-old sister Natali said that she was very excited to work with the singer, Mattel and the Born This Way Foundation. “I like to live by a motto for myself: ‘Be the most vulnerable me I can be.’ And through the collaboration, I feel like the doll really represents showing your unique self and being the most vulnerable you,” said the costume designer.
Natali added that as a child she always liked to sketch and wanted to design and this was a great opportunity to express her.
