New Barbie dolls, released by Mattel, feature t-shirts that say “Love Wins,” the slogan used by many in the LGBT community to support their cause.
According to CNSNews.com, a picture of two Barbie dolls wearing the “Love Wins” t-shirts was posted to Instagram by the account official Barbie account, Barbie Style, along with the caption:
“Proud to wear this ‘Love Wins’ shirt with @songof style! Did you know that her exclusive t-shirts benefit different causes and non-profits? Such an inspiring initiative and fabulous few days I have spent with Aimee, she’s a doll!”
One of the dolls in the photo is a classic Barbie doll and the other is modelled after Los Angeles fashion blogger Aimee Song, who recently designed the “Love Wins” t-shirt for humans.
According to The Washington Blade, "The shirts are sold on Song’s website for $68," stated the newspaper. "Barbie Style, an Instagram that features Barbie and her friends showing off looks, posted Barbie and the doll Song wearing the shirts."
Mattel first released the Barbie doll in 1959. Since that time, the iconic doll has gone through many makeovers with the changing cultural trends.
