Like many of the trailblazing cover models in Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Issue, Barbie® made her public debut wearing a swimsuit--a black-and-white striped maillot. From being a "teenage fashion model", Barbie® has embarked on more than 150 careers, and has reached the status of global icon.
As an anniversary tribute, Barbie® is issuing a collector Sports Illustrated™ Barbie® Doll, which will be available exclusively on Target.com.
