Thursday is a good day for fashion, Barbie fans and body-positive advocates.

Mattel has unveiled the 2016 Fashionistas Line with brand new clothing, colors and even body types.

The classic doll now comes in original, petite, tall and curvy with appearance variations for each one. To be exact, Barbie will now be available in seven skin tones, 22 eye colors, 24 hair styles, four body types and even more trendy clothing options.

TIME Magazine's cover will feature one of the new dolls in the beginning of February.

The brand new dolls are available online and for pre-order now.

Barbie has also recently started offering a wider variety of doll identities in order to empower young kids and fans. The newest, President and Vice President Barbie, and Game Developer Career of the Year Barbie, will be available in Summer 2016.
