Hadid and Hilfiger were asked about the doll by E! Live from the Red Carpet. Hilfiger said that the doll was "amazing". Hadid said, "I didn't know that you could get something that looked actually like someone that... well.. It was great. I'm blown away. (...) They told me, like, there's gonna be a Barbie wearing, um, the collection—which, last season, Barbie wore our first season collection—and so I thought it was gonna be that. I didn't know there was actually gonna be a Barbie of me! And it was so cool; I couldn't stop staring at my phone all day, I was so excited."
