Alessandra Ambrosio loves to collect.
As a Victoria’s Secret Angel, actress and leader of a family of four, Ambrosio has plenty on her plate, but it’s not enough, because she has two major collections in her life – including her extensive selection of Barbie dolls.
When she isn’t modeling the world’s classiest fashions, this model is devoted to her true love: Barbie dolls to be exact.
Throughout the years, Ambrosio has amassed quite the Barbie collection, with some of her favorite antique pieces dating back to the 1950s. Her collection is said to be worth thousands, and as of today, she has “about 60” in her collection, reports Glamour magazine, and she shows no signs of stopping.
While Ambrosio loves to seek out the dolls herself in shops and online marketplaces, she admits to a bit of embarrassment. Fortunately, now she has the perfect excuse: she simply tells people that her 7-year-old daughter Anja is the real collector, but everyone knows that isn’t exactly true.
Ambrosio herself would love to be captured in Barbie form, she’d be far from the first celeb to be made into a Barbie. As Mashable recounts, more than a dozen stars have famously been translated into Barbies, including classic cultural icons like Elvis and Marilyn Monroe to more modern popular figures like Jennifer Lawrence and Beyoncé.
At Gigi’s Dolls, we carry a great selection of modern and classic Barbies, including the Jennifer Lopez World Tour doll, the Adams Family gift set and several “I Love Lucy” doll sets. If you are looking to expand your doll collection, our fantastic inventory is sure to have some great options for you to add to your set.
