Australian models such as Miranda Kerr, Abbey Lee Kershaw and Catherine McNeil have so far inspired leading designers, magazine editors and makeup artists. But that's not, these catwalk babes have inspired Mattel - the makers of Barbie.

Barbie, the world's most famous doll has a new collection of dress. The new Barbie dresses have a distinctively Aussie look, with some of the 12 new mini models inspired by Australian beauties.

The Barbie Basics Collection was launched at Australian Fashion Week.

12 Barbie dolls have been styled in the little black dress, each featuring faces inspired by Aussie supermodels.

"You need to have that little bit something extra even in something like Barbie and this line delivers that," said Robert Best, the principal designer for Barbie.

"It is aimed at a fashion consumer and a consumer who's going to be aware of the kind of girls like Miranda Kerr, Abbey Lee Kershaw and Catherine McNeil who are working and dominating the pages of fashion magazines.
