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.

She wore a fuzzy white sweater, polka-dot white and green pants, white pumps, a tiny bow in her hair, and gold hoop earrings.

Yara has recently been named a Barbie role model, receiving a one-of-a-kind doll made to look like her, for pushing boundaries and inspiring the next generation of girls.

“What today represents, at least for me and for my peers globally, is that quite honestly, not even the sky is the limit,” Yara said during her speech (via her Instagram Stories). “I believe it is crucial to not only myself, but young girls everywhere, to understand they have the support of people, of corporations, of movements here to help them achieve their dreams.”

FYI: Yara is wearing a Marc Jacobs outfit and shoes with Jennifer Fisher hoop earrings.
