Barbie’s New Zendaya Doll Slays Just as Much as the Real Girl

Zendaya is the queen of the classy clapback.

Let somebody dare to mock her fierce dreads or come for her parents on social media — she’s not having any of that. And she’ll make that clear in the most elegant way possible. To celebrate the fact that Zendaya’s not afraid to stand up for herself and others (check her 19th birthday wish), Barbie is on deck to unveil its newest doll in Z’s likeness, replicating her bomb Oscars look.

In a statement about the Barbie doll, Zendaya said, “I’m excited to be a part of the new direction the Barbie brand is headed, specifically how they are celebrating diversity in the line and encouraging kids to raise their voices.”

During her hosting gig at the first annual Rock ‘N Royals Concert Experience at the Hollywood Palladium (sponsored by Barbie), of which all ticket sales benefit VH1’s Save The Music Foundation, Zendaya will be presented with the new doll. Peep the doll’s sketch below:
