Zenday made headlines at the 2015 Oscars with her gorgeous ‘do above. The actress rocked these beautiful faux locs which caused naturalistas around the world to offer a standing ovation and a synchronized “yasss”. However, E!’s Fashion Police cohost Giuliana Rancic clearly was not a fan of Zendaya’s hair style, stating that the talented fashionista looked like she “smells of patchouli oil and weed.”

The then 18-year-old starlet handled this situation and responded to the critics with poise and maturity which Mattel took note of, thus honoring Zendaya with a one-of-a-kind replica doll of her Oscars 2015 red carpet look. She encourages not just her fans, but people of all ages, to Raise Their Voice and #BeSuper.


While on a visit at the Barbie headquarters, Zendaya told Yahoo:

“When I was little, I didn’t have one that looked like me, so I couldn’t connect with her in that way. 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.”
