As a child, the former foreign minister played with a Jackie Kennedy doll. Now, she has been honoured with one in her own image, melly_singer writes juliebishop auspol Barbie

Throughout her career, Julie Bishop has been honoured in numerous ways. And though she may not yetaward, Bishop now has something almost no other Australian has: her own Barbie doll.

Julie Bishop with her Barbie doll, whose outfit is modelled on her dress from the day she quit politics.The day Bishop quit politics – August 26, 2018 – was so symbolic that she chose her navy Armani dress and coat, and, to be replicated for the doll’s outfit. Completing the look are matching diamond earrings and brooch, a diplomatic passport and Bishop’s silver carry-on suitcase. The hairstyle is also more reflective of Bishop’s 2018 ’do than its current shoulder length.

“Knowing how much Barbie had meant to me as a little girl, knowing how Barbie had evolved into this doll that inspired young girls to choose fascinating careers, I jumped at this opportunity,” she says.

melly_singer Julia deserves that Barbie....she has great taste and is obviously intelligent. I think it's a great role model doll for children. Does that Barbie expect Gender Quotas in Australia?
