Misty Copeland Gets Her Own Barbie Doll

Misty Copeland is getting her own doll!

The ballerina, who made history last year for becoming the first African-American principle dancer at the American Ballet Theatre, helped design the figurine made by Mattel.

Good Morning America unveiled the doll, with the help of Copeland and young ballerinas, on Monday morning (May 2). It's dressed in a fiery head-to-toe combination of red and orange to emulate the Firebird character she played onstage in 2015.
