Mattel approached the former Disney star about creating a doll in her likeness earlier this year and within a few short months, we were finally given a sneak peek of one of the most anticipated additions to the Barbie family.

The actress and singer introduced the new doll last night at an event in LA and was clearly pleased with the results as she kept kissing and proudly holding it.

“When I was little I couldn't find a Barbie that looked like me,” she wrote on Instagram. “My... how times have changed. Thank you @barbie for this honor and for allowing me to be a part of your diversification and expansion of the definition of beauty.”

The doll was mimicked after her look at the Academy Awards, including her killer dreadlocks.
