Superstar ballerina Misty Copeland is the latest celebrity to get her own Barbie doll.
Copeland earned wide recognition last summer when she became the first ever African-American female principal dancer at the American Ballet Theatre.
Barbie executives say they chose to honor Copeland because she is "at the center of a cultural conversation around how women continue to break boundaries."
