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.
