Zendaya Shows Off Her Barbie Doll & Shares Inspiring Message With Fans – Hollywood Life
How cool would it be to have a Barbie doll that looks like you? Zendaya now knows! The beautiful teen star has beenÂ honored with her own Barbie doll, and weâ€™re just as excited as she is about it. See her moving message about the new BarbieÂ below!
Zendaya Coleman, 19, may have received one of the coolest honors a teen could get: her own Barbie! The KC Undercover star and fashionista unveiled her Barbie look-alike on Sept. 26, modeled afterÂ her 2015 Oscars look, complete with dreadlocks and a gorgeous white gown. Along with an awesome side-by-side pic of her and the doll, ZendayaÂ also sharedÂ a super inspiring message to her fans!
Mattel, Barbieâ€™s parent company, revealed it would be creating aÂ Zendaya-inspired doll on its Twitter Sept. 18, but the world got the chance to see it on Sept. 26 when the doll debuted at theÂ Barbie Rock â€˜N Royals Concert Experience on Sept. 26 in Los Angeles. After the big reveal, Zendaya took to social media to share her own excitement â€” and a special message with her fans!
â€œWhen I was little I couldnâ€™t find a Barbie that looked like me, myâ€¦how times have changed. Thank you @barbie for this honor and for allowing me to be apart of your diversification and expansion of the definition of beauty. Canâ€™t wait to keep doing amazing things with youÂ â€ª#â€Žbesuperâ€¬,â€ she wrote.
What a sweet way for Zendaya toÂ say thank you and inspire her fans! But the Zendaya Barbie isnâ€™t just special because of its celebration of diversityÂ â€” itâ€™s modeled after her amazing Oscars lookÂ that received some hurtful criticism. In case you missed it, Zendayaâ€™s rocked some awesomeÂ dreadlocks to the award show, andÂ Giuliana Rancic totally dissed her look by saying she probably smells of â€œpatchouli oil and weed.â€ Zendaya quickly fired back at the comment in a perfect way, which is probably why her Barbie is representing the iconic look!
As if we needed any more reasons to love Zendaya, her #besuper message to her fans gave us one more. Weâ€™re so excited for Zendaya, and we couldnâ€™t think of someone more deserving of her own doll!
What do you think of Zendayaâ€™s message, HollywoodLifers? Do you loveÂ the look Mattel chose for her Barbie? Sound off below!
