Mattel is honoring Selma director Ava DuVernay with her very own Barbie doll. DuVernay is one of six figures spotlighted in Barbie’s 2015 Sheroes Collection, the company announced Friday (April 24).

DuVerney was chosen along with Emmy Rossum, Kristin Chenoweth, Trisha Yearwood, Lucky magazine editor in chief, Eva Chen, and 5-year-old designer Sydney “Mayhem” Keiser.

Mattel picked its “Sheroes” because they “inspire girls by breaking boundaries and expanding possibilities for women everywhere,” the company said in a news release.

Barbie General Manager Evelyn Mazzocco, added, “Barbie has always represented that girls have choices, and this Spring we are proud to honor six Sheroes who through their trade and philanthropic efforts are an inspiration to girls.”

The dolls won’t be sold in stores though, they’re more of a personal gift for the Sheores. Check out detailed images below and on the flip.
