Yara Shahidi Celebrates Barbie's Annivesary with Singer H.E.R.

It’s the 60th anniversary of Barbie and Yara Shahidi is in full celebration mode!

The 19-year-old Grown-ish actress hosted an anniversary party with singer H.E.R. on Friday night (March 8) at 505 Broadway in New York City.

Earlier that day, Yara‘s Barbie doll was unveiled as part of International Women’s Day. 20 role models from around the world were turned into dolls for the special day.

“It’s really surreal just because this was never within my realm of possibility. I never thought, ‘Oh yeah, one day I’ll have my own doll’ or anything like that,” Yara said (via ET Canada). “It really amplifies and reaffirms this idea that we can excel in whatever field.”

Also at the party was The Act actress AnnaSophia Robb. H.E.R. was seen meeting up with the event’s 12-year-old DJs Amira & Kayla, who spun for part of the night.
