BARBIE CELEBRATES DIVERSITY
Barbie is honoring Hollywood trailblazer Anna Mae Wong to kick off Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month. Wong, the latest figure to get a doll in Barbie's "Inspiring Women Series,'' is considered the first Asian-American star in Hollywood history. The doll's outfit is a reference to Wong's role in the film Limehouse Blues. She was also the first Asian-American actor to star in her own TV show and was named the world's best-dressed woman in 1934 by the New York Mayfair Mannequin Society.
