Zendaya Gets Her Own Barbie

This week Mattel unveiled a Barbie made in the likeness of actress Zendaya Coleman.  I love the fact that they modeled the doll after the gorgeous locs she wore to the Oscars.

I absolutely love the reason Mattel chose her for this honor:

“She’s a role model who is focused on standing up for yourself, your culture, and for what you believe in — that’s very relevant for girls,” Michelle Chidoni, a spokesperson for Mattel told TODAY.com.

“She [also] gives a lot of inspiring words to her fans on social media, and she’s really grounded,” Chidoni added.

Mattel partnered with Zendaya to create the doll that “commemorates that particular red carpet look where she had a moment of confidence that was so positively received,” Chidoni said. [Today]

Absolutely gorgeous.  I want one!
