Hilary Duff is to be immortalised in plastic with her very own Barbie doll.

The Red Carpet Glam Hilary Duff Doll - wearing a polka-dot dress and red satin sash - will be on sale next month.

Jamie Wood, Mattel's vice president of Barbie marketing, said: "Hilary is a great role model to girls. Not only is she a stylish entertainer, actor and fashion designer, but she also shows girls that there are no limits to what they can do."

Teen idol Hilary - who is best known for starring in TV show Lizzie McGuire - has also designed clothes for the plastic figures.

The 19-year-old singer-and-actress will be following in the footsteps of Beyonc?nowles and Reese Witherspoon, who have also had Barbie dolls made in their likeness.

Meanwhile, Hilary is reportedly furious that her ex-boyfriend Good Charlotte rocker Joel Madden has started dating Nicole Richie, who she has branded a "skank".

A source told Us Weekly magazine: "Hilary doesn't want to talk to Joel. She can't believe he is dating Nicole. She thinks she is a skank."

And when Hilary heard about Nicole's recent arrest for driving under the influence, she allegedly flew into a rage.

The source added: "Hilary kept asking if Nicole had been coming from Joel's house when she was arrested. She kept saying she feels like she never knew Joel at all."

Hilary and Joel, who split up in November, dated for two-and-a-half years.
