Laverne Cox officially has her own Barbie doll.  The actress said, “I helped design this with the team at Mattel, and I wanted to do multiple outfits. But to make it cost-effective—$40 retail—we could only do one look.”  She went on to say, “I was like, ‘What if we did a look that peeled?” she added. “She gives you a catsuit fantasy, honey. Transgender Barbie is in effect. She’s giving you looks. She’s giving you everything.”
