Jennifer Lopez has now been immortalized in plastic, thanks to Mattel.
The toy makers have introduced two new Barbie dolls that bare J. Lo’s likeness and take a page from her fashion playbook. The “Red Carpet” doll is wearing the miniature replica of the Zuhair Murad beaded gown that the star wore to the 2012 Oscars, while the “World Tour” doll is all done up in the beaded flesh tone catsuit that she wore on her most recent tour.

In a video promoting the doll’s release, Lopez admits, “I wanted to live in Barbie’s world, I wanted to be Barbie. I think Barbie represents infinite possibilities.”
But there is something the doll, retailed at $29.95, is missing: J.Lo’s signature curves.
Radio station Aire de San Justo 101.1 cried foul after comparing photos of the doll and the star, questioning why Mattel decided to make the doll’s waistline so small.
Lopez has yet to comment on her doll’s waist size, but did release a stop motion video, billed as “unreleased footage from her world tour,” that featured mini-J. Lo showing off her fly girl moves.
