Yes, Barbie. As in Barbie Doll. People reports:

The iconic doll “posed” for the magazine’s “Legends” section in the upcoming issue as part of her new “#unapologetic” campaign, in which she’s responding to critics by celebrating her 150+ careers, $3 billion worth and the fact that women can be beautiful as well as brainy. Wearing the black-and-white chevron suit that first made her famous, Barbie tells us she was thrilled to be featured in the issue, “as it’s the 50th anniversary of an iconic brand and the celebration of legendary women who, like me, launched their career in a swimsuit but went on to establish empires.”

The issue is expected out on Feb. 18. See a cheeky interview about the shoot with Barbie here.
