Well, we'll be damned.

Say hello to your new Barbie dolls!
For the first time in 57 years, Mattel has decided to finally introduce new body types. And hopefully permanently!
The long overdue evolution comes on Wednesday, where you will find dolls with three new body figures: curvy, petite, and tall.
That's not to say the original Barbie won't still exist because she will, but kids will finally have the option to choose otherwise!!
And how fab do they look??
The three body types also feature different skin tones and hair, just like the original. Obviously there is a lot more to do, but it's a pleasant surprise seeing them with more realist bodies.
Evelyn Mazzocco, global SVP at Barbie, admitted:
What a beautiful moment!
Z took to Instagram, writing on one photo:
"When I was little I couldn't find a Barbie that looked like me, my…how times have changed. Thank you @barbie for this honor and for allowing me to be apart of your diversification and expansion of the definition of beauty. Can't wait to keep doing amazing things with you😘😘😘#besuper @luxurylaw @theshelbyswain"
While the powerful statement obviously wasn't lost on the 19-year-old, it also caught the eye of the ultimate Barbie, Nicki Minaj!
She took to social media on Sunday, saying:
This is the best news we've heard in a while!!
But it couldn't be more perfect, and it's about time!
Barbie made the announcement to Twitter on Friday, writing:
Gigi Hadid is a real-life Barbie doll!
Maybe Ken was busy remodeling their New York apartment or something! Or fixing his hair!
LOLz, we're just joking.
It's totally healthy for couples to hang out separately once in a while.
Also, we have to say that although Gigi looked good, her white pants and white crop top seemed impractical for clubbing.
Can you imagine how many staggering drunk people would accidentally spill their cocktails and stain her clothes?
Something to think about for next time!

Supremely talented makeup artist Kandee Johnson transforms herself into the iconic doll using nothing more than makeup, blue contact lenses, and a blonde wig — you will be dazzled by the final result!
It's really impressive! Especially how she does the eyelashes!
Kandee's actually done a TON of AH-Mazing transformations, even manipulating herself to look like Snow White, Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, and Jack Sparrow!
Check out clip (below) and then see more photos of Kandee's work in the gallery (above)!
It's a who-wore-it-better showdown of epic proportions!
On Monday Barbie stepped out in LA wearing a pink-and-black mini dress with scalloped yoke that we immediately noticed looked just like a Victoria by Victoria Beckham dress Posh Spice wore back in 2011!
The question pretty much asks itself!
Who Wore It Better???

P.S. Whoever runs this Barbie Instagram — God bless you.
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)!!
