Zendaya Reveals Her New Custom Barbie
Zendaya’s 2015 Oscars look has been immortalized in Barbie form.
And happily, the days of Barbies who think “math class is tough!” are long over. Now there’s a Barbie who represents a strong-minded, opinionated woman who is a great role model for young people today: Zendaya.
The 19-year-old actress and singer hit the red carpet at the Barbie Rock ‘N Royals Concert Experience to reveal her new Barbie, complete with an off-the-shoulder dress and dreadlocks just like her own Academy Awards look that received so much flack from Giuliana Rancic on Fashion Police.
Recently, Zendaya opened up to us about what it’s like having a Barbie made after her. “When I was in my Barbie stage, I didn’t really have Barbies that looked like me or Barbies that I related to,” she said. “I’m really, really excited to see and be a part of that future, because it’s something really important for people like my niece and nephew to have that.”

Meanwhile, in a tweet that has since been deleted, looks like someone else would love to have a Barbie modeled after them (Demi Lovato.)
