#BlackGirlMagic: Zendaya Coleman Is Getting Her Very Own Barbie Doll

Zendaya has accomplished more at 19 years old than many have in their entire lives.

Now, the teenage beauty will be immortalized as a one-of-a-kind Barbie doll. Manufacturing company Mattel announced on Twitter that Barbie will commemorate Zendaya’s elegance and poise from the iconic 2015 Oscars moment when she responded to critics about her dreadlocks.

During a recent visit to the Mattel offices, Zendaya discussed her relationship with Barbie growing up. She revealed:

“When I was little, I didn’t have one that looked like me, so I couldn’t connect with her in that way. But getting to visit the Mattel offices and see Barbie’s vision for the future…I was able to see how they plan to diversify, broadening the horizons and the image of Barbie, and make it more, you know, open. I left the office feeling it was definitely something I wanted to be a part of.”

Z will host a Save The Music benefit entitled “Barbie Rock ‘N Royals Concert Experience” on Sept. 26 in Los Angeles, during which the doll will be on display. Congrats, Miss Coleman!
