Shania Twain is one of eight women worldwide who are being honored with a Barbie in their likeness for Women’s History Month.

Country music legend Shania Twain is now a Barbie doll. The “Any Man of Mine” singer is one of the latest celebrity women to partner with Mattel for their Role Models Barbie collection. According to Mattel, the global toy company behind the Barbie brand, the one-of-a-kind dolls are meant to introduce “girls to remarkable women’s stories to show them you can be anything.”

The Shania Twain Barbie was unveiled Wednesday, March 6, to coincide with Women’s History Month, International Women’s Day on March 8, and Barbie’s 65th birthday on March 9.


Shania shared clips of her first meeting with her lookalike doll on social media. A series of photos show the 58-year-old posing with her doll, and an included video shows Twain sharing the reason she chose for her doll to wear her iconic “Man! I Feel Like A A Woman” outfit.

“That is the original ‘Man! I Feel Like A Woman’ outfit,” Shania said, showing a photo of herself wearing the memorable top hat, knee-high black boots and black floor-length trench coat. “And that hair is just me still playing Barbie with myself. The story carries on and it’s really beautiful that we can evolve.”

In her post caption, Shania celebrated the honor, saying that all she’s wanted to do is inspire women and girls through “stories of empowerment, independence and self-expression.”

In addition to Shania Twain, the following women were also honored with their own Barbie likenesses:

Dame Helen Mirren, Acclaimed Actress (UK)
Maira Gomez, Indigenous Content Creator (Brazil)
Nicole Fujita, Model (Japan)
Viola Davis, Artist/Activist (USA)
Shania Twain, Singer/Songwriter (Canada)
Enissa Amani, Comedian (Germany)
Kylie Minogue, Artist (Australia)
Lila Avilés, Filmmaker (Mexico)


“Man! I Feel Like A Woman” was featured on her 1997 album Come On Over, and was released in 1999.

The song was certified triple-platinum and became one of the most popular girl-power anthems in music history. Twain co-wrote the song with ex-husband Mutt Lange, saying in a recent interview that the song was penned when she was embracing her femininity and demanding respect for her art.

“Because often in the world of a female and of a girl, if you’re not careful with the balance of your physical self – the way you present yourself – and with what it is that’s going on in your brain, then you’re overshadowed by the girl, by the woman, by the curves,” she told USA Today in a recent interview.

But, she never imagined that her boldness would lead to her likeness being immortalized in the form of a Barbie doll, a universal symbol of girl power. Unfortunately, the Shania Twain Barbie will not be available for sale. Only one of the dolls was made and now belongs to Shania.
