Barbie has partnered with Sports Illustrated for a unique campaign in the Sports Illustrated 50th Anniversary Swimsuit edition, which arrives on newsstands February 18th. The campaign carries the #unapologetic hashtag and tagline.

Barbie wears a version of her iconic black-and-white swimsuit from 1959 in the campaign. Mattel says photographer Walter Iooss was commissioned by Sports Illustrated to shoot a special editorial for the magazine. Iooss also shoots the swimsuit models for the annual magazine. The New York Times reports that the campaign include a special cover wrap that will appear on 1,000 copies of the issue. Behind-the-scenes videos with Barbie will also be released.

Here is a video of Barbie's photo shoot:
