For decades, kids all over the world have played with Barbie dolls, so it’s nothing new.

But imagine you’re playing with a Barbie doll that is an exact replica of your mom? And your mom just happens to be one of the world’s most successful supermodels ever.

Now that’s something that doesn’t happen every day.

Supermodel and Guinness World record holder for the most magazine covers, Claudia Schiffer, has recently been gifted with a Barbie doll that looks exactly like her.

Barbie Style, the makers of the Claudia Barbie doll, made a replica of the German model for her 50th birthday. Side note: Claudia Schiffer is 50 years old! Can you believe it? When did that happen?

While only one doll has been made, the creators of the Claudia Schiffer Barbie doll has made two outfits for her, based on outfits that were made famous by the model during her successful career.

The first outfit is a light blue Versace gown that she wore during the Italian label’s Autumn/Winter 1994 show in Paris, reports W24.

On the choice of outfit for the doll, Donatella Versace commented: "I am so proud that to celebrate Claudia’s 50th year, the blue gown from the 1994 show was chosen."

The second outfit is one that the model wore for Balmain’s Spring/Summer 2016 ad campaign. It features a black cut out top, skirt and belt.
