“Selma” director Ava DuVernay has become a superstar not only on the Hollywood scene but also in the toy world. Her Barbie doll went on sale yesterday and as of this morning has reportedly sold out.

She is among power women including Kristin Chenoweth, Emmy Rossum, Trisha Yearwood, Lucky editor-in-chief Eva Chen, and fashion designer Sydney “Mayhem” Keiser featured in the “Sheroes” series of dolls.

DuVernay has been nominated for two Academy Awards, four Golden Globes, five Critics Choice awards, eight NAACP Image Awards and five Independent Spirit Awards and stands as a forerunner in her industry.



Social media is abuzz about the doll and its popularity, with some lamenting the fact that they couldn’t purchase the doll before it sold out. Check out a few updates below:
