She is also going to have new skin tones representing a range of ethnicities and races.

There will also be 22 eye colors, 24 hairstyles and an array of outfits seeking to appeal to modern kids, tweens, and adult collectors.

However, the usual Barbie is still going to be top-dog for the brand.

The new additions are going to be sold as the "Fashionistas" line.

This isn't the first time Barbie has tried to push itself into the modern world.

Last year, a boy appeared in a commercial for the doll for the first time ever to rep new doll "Mochino" Barbie.

You can buy them on Mattel's website.
