Sylvie van der Vaart is getting her very own Barbie doll. Mattel will be releasing a series of Blonde Ambition Barbies, which will include one to look exactly like Sylvie if she was only about 12 inches tall and made of plastic.
Sylvie is an ambassador for the competition design with Barbie. Here, children from all over Europe come up with their own fashion designs for the doll. This year, Barbie will be entirely dedicated to fashion!
“As a kid I loved to play with my Barbie. Dressing up Barbie with an evening gown, as a doctor or for the beach. I could play for hours with Barbie, ” Sylvie said.
Proud husband Rafael tweeted some pics of the Sylvie Barbie that was unveiled at a toy fair in Germany today. Toy makers Matel even worked with Sylvie’s stylist Danie Bles to make sure every detail of the Jan Taminiau dress she wore on Let’s Dance last year was accurate. Nothing is missing from the doll, not even her beautiful 11 carat diamond ring and fake lashes.
