Barbie Honors Zendaya Coleman with One-of-a-Kind Doll

Barbie has announced that it will be celebrating actress, singer, and budding fashion icon Zendaya Coleman with one-of-a-kind Barbie doll.

At this year's Oscar's Coleman rocked beautiful faux locs to “showcase them in a positive light and to remind people of color that our hair is good enough.” When Fashion Police’s Giuliana Rancic said Coleman’s loc looked like they smelled like “patchouli oil or weed,” Coleman eloquently stood up for Black people with locs.

Because of Coleman's courage, Barbie will be honoring her with her very own one-of-a-kind doll.

“When I was little, I didn’t have one that looked like me, so I couldn’t connect with her in that way,” Coleman told Yahoo. “But getting to visit the Mattel offices and see Barbie’s vision for the future ... it was really cool. 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.”

The doll will be unveiled during the Barbie Rock ’n Royals Concert Experience on September 26 in Los Angeles.
