Do you recall Zendaya's 2015 Oscars red carpet style that turned heads and made waves? Remember when the star wouldn't let anyone bully her for rocking her hair in dreadlocks for the event? Well, the actress' glam, gorgeous, and powerful style is about to be commemorated and celebrated in the form of a Barbie doll!
Mattel's brand is honoring Zendaya at the Barbie Rock ‘N Royals Concert Experience on September 26 in Hollywood, all for encouraging girls to "raise their voices" and speak up when they feel passionately about an issue. Her one-of-a-kind doll will also be unveiled at the event, and this sketch is giving us a sneak peek at it will look like:
The doll will look just like Z in her Vivienne Westwood gown, with her super long dreads perfectly cascading down her back.
"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 about the news. "It’s a positive message to send to my fans, including my nieces who are coming with me to the concert."
We can't wait to see the doll, and we're so impressed with Z!
