It’s a big year for Fan Bingbing, apparently. The movie star, who just ranked number one in the 2014 Forbes China Celebrity 100 List, is now China’s first actress to be invited to join the Barbie global celebrity Hall of Fame. The doll is currently on display at a special exhibition of Barbie dolls at Shanghai’s Grand Gateway Plaza.
The Fan doll, who for some reason is absent of skin tone, is showcased wearing the yellow dragon-printed dress she turned some heads in at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival and is positioned looking down, god-like, from an enclosed case towering above visitors in front of a backdrop of ordinary, non-Fan Barbie dolls featured at the exhibition.
Those of you still mourning the closure of Shanghai’s very own Barbie store can get your doll fix from May 28 to June 17 at Grand Gateway Plaza in Shanghai.
