10 Celebrities You Didn't Realize Had Their Own Barbie Doll

Country singers, television stars and Hollywood icons have been immortalized in plastic.

Mattel's Barbie dolls are more than just children's toys. They have become valuable collectibles over the years, especially with some of the special edition dolls that the toy giant has released. There are devoted Barbie collectors who spend hours and hours scouring eBay looking for specialty dolls to add to their extensive collections, and we can only assume that some of the many celebrity Barbie dolls that have been released are on their wish lists.

There are Barbies of the most random array of celebrities as well as fictional characters from music, television and film. From Disney's Mary Poppins and Sandy from Grease to the vampires in Twilight and Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games, you can find seemingly anyone in doll form. Some of the most notable stars that have their own dolls include Cher, Barbra Streisand, Audrey Hepburn and more modern names like Nicki Minaj and Jennifer Lopez. There's even a Heidi Klum fashion doll for fans of America's Got Talent.

And of course the 2023 film Barbie upped widespread interest in the toy line and surely will inspire a new generation of lifelong collectors.

Below are 10 of the numerous celebrities who you might not have realized have their very own Barbie.

1. Elizabeth Taylor


Not only does Liz Taylor have her own Barbie, but she has her own collection. She has a Cleopatra doll, the White Diamonds fragrance-inspired one pictured above, a Father of the Bride wedding doll, the violet eyes doll and a doll in a violet evening gown to match her famously violet eyes. 

2. Ree Drummond

The best Barbies come with an array of fantastically plastic accessories— a plus for this re re-creation of The Pioneer Woman herself. Her colorful doll kitchen looks exactly like the real line of kitchen products Ree Drummond created that are available for purchase.

3. Dolly Parton

Few embody the Mattel creation's spirit and look quite like the singer-songwriter behind Backwoods Barbie. She has a few models available on Amazon or eBay, but we're partial to this version in the red checkered dress. Her platinum blonde hair is just as big as the real deal, too. Note that these 1996 dolls aren't part of the Barbie line, which allows for a very Dollyesque head sculpt.

4. Reba McEntire

The Reba McEntire Barbie's red gown resembles the iconic "Fancy" outfit the singer wore at the 1993 CMA Awards and brought back 25 years later.

5. Grace Kelly

Similar to Hollywood legend Taylor, Princess Grace has her own collection. She has the Rear Window doll as pictured above as well as the To Catch A Thief doll, a bride doll and a romance doll. Each is as poised and sophisticated as the star was in real life.

6. Faith Hill and Tim McGraw

Of all of the country music power couples out there, it makes sense that it was Tim McGraw and Faith Hill that was chosen to be recreated as a Barbie gift set. The Ken doll really does have an uncanny resemblance to the country star with his signature black cowboy hat. With mics in hand, it looks like they are ready to perform one of their beloved duets. 

7. Carol Burnett

If there are Clark Gable and Scarlett O'Hara dolls inspired by Gone With The Wind, it only makes sense to give Carol Burnett her own Went with the Wind! doll, inspired by her sketch from The Carol Burnett Show. The comedic genius paired with a creative costume designer really made this sketch memorable and its hilarious that its doll recreation also lives on. 

8. Elvis and Priscilla Presley

One of the most monumental pop culture moments during the King's career was his marriage to young Priscilla. Even the doll's wedding dress is a dead ringer for the real thing.  

9. Martina McBride

The white dress and chopped hair on this doll were inspired by Martina McBride's outfit at the CMA Awards in 2004, the year before the doll was released. Purchase it here.

10. LeAnn Rimes

Teenage LeAnn Rimes wowed the music world in the '90s with a powerful voice that got likened to that of Patsy Line. The doll, with her playful pink shirt and mic in hand, captures the essence of Rimes' style. Purchase the rare collectable here.
