Zendaya, everyone’s favorite fashionista, will soon have her very own Barbie doll made in her likeness. Barbie recently announced that it will use the actress’s 2015 Oscars look to create a doll in her honor. The doll will be styled in a dress just like her gorgeous Vivienne Westwood off-the-shoulder gown and hair done up in long faux locs.
The Barbie brand made the big announcement over Twitter with a sketch of Zendaya’s Oscar style and the caption, “So excited to honor @Zendaya with a one-of-a-kind doll as she encourages girls to Raise Their Voices and to #BeSuper!”
The doll will be showcased at the Barbie Rock ’N Royals Concert Experience in Hollywood next weekend.
“I’m excited to be a part of the new direction the Barbie brand is headed, specifically how they are celebrating diversity in the line and encouraging kids to raise their voices,” Zendaya said in a statement. “It’s a positive message to send to my fans, including my nieces who are coming with me to the concert.”
There have been no announcements made as to whether the doll will be available for consumers, but if it will be, we couldn’t be more excited to have this for our own collection, let alone for the little girls in our lives.
