The Shameless actress and animal activist wasn't the only one seeing double that day!

Toy manufacturer Mattel selected six powerful women to be part of their Barbie Shero (she-hero) project!

Broadway babe Kristin Chenoweth, country star Trisha Yearwood, Selma director Ava DuVernay, Lucky magazine editor Eva Chen, and five-year-old fashion designer Sydney Keiser were also honored at last week's event with Barbies crafted in their likenesses.

Barbie's New Book Gets SLAMMED By Parents Who Say It's Sexist! Find Out Why HERE!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooWacky, Tacky & TrueBarbieStuff 4 KidzViral: News

Barbie is once again stirring up controversy, but this time it's because of a book!

At this point, we're not too surprised when we hear about a new Barbie toy rubbing parents the wrong way!

But when we heard her new book about her quest to become a computer engineer was stirring up controversy, we were a bit caught off guard!

At first glance, Barbie: I Can Be a Computer Engineer seems like a harmless story of Barbie exploring the world of computer engineering! In fact, it's downright empowering when you think about it!

The only issue is Barbie comes across a few obstacles along the way, and she's only able to fix them with a little help from her MALE friends!

Chanel's Karl Lagerfeld Now Has His Own Limited Edition Barbie Doll — And It Is BEAUTIFUL!

| Filed under: Fashion SmashionKarl LagerfeldBarbieGIFs

BREAKING NEWS: Karl Lagerfeld and Barbie had a baby together!!!

Yup, just when you thought Barbie and Ken were going to be a couple for all time, Karl swept Barbie off her feet and produced a child with the plastic doll.

Just kidding, that's super creepy!!

But while while the Chanel designer didn't literally reproduce with Barbie, he did team up with Mattel to create an expensive, exclusive, high-fashion Karl Barbie!

The doll is a female version of Mr. Lagerfeld, complete with some of his favorite attire and accessories. Because fingerless gloves are a necessity!!

These dolls won't exactly be child's play, however — there will only be 999 of them made, and they'll retail at around $200 each. Additionally, they'll only be available at Karl Lagerfeld boutiques, Collette, Net-a-Porter, and thebarbiecollector.com starting September 29th.

While it's disappointing that Karl Barbie's high price tag will keep her from being available to the masses, we do have to applaud Mattel for creating such an accurate doll version of the living fashion legend.

She's a spitting image — check out more pics (above)!!
