Model-turned-fashion mogul Kimora Lee Simmons’ new Barbie doll comes with a faux-fur coat, in a bid to show young girls they can look "fabulous" without skinning animals.
The designer and reality TV star admits she was thrilled when toymakers Mattel decided to model a Barbie in her likeness, but she had one recommendation.
She says, "She has a faux-fur chinchilla coat, because I want to show kids that synthetic fur can be fabulous, too. She’s everything a Barbie is supposed to be."
Simmons isn’t the only celebrity to inspire a modern Barbie - a Hilary Duff doll has also been created recently.
