American singer, model and actress Zendaya Maree Stoermer Coleman, better known as Zendaya has received her own Barbie doll Oscar’s-inspired dreadlocks hairstyle.
She received her Oscars-inspired doll at the Barbie Rock ‘N Royals Concert Experience in Los Angeles on Saturday, September 26. It would be recalled that she was criticised by former E! News anchor Guiliana Rancic for wearing her hair in dreadlocks as she attended the 2015 Oscars in February.
The excitedly 19-year-old shared a close-up photo of her Barbie doll’s dreadlocks on her Instagram with the message below:
When I was little I couldn’t find a Barbie that looked like me, my …how times have changed. Thank you @barbie for this honor and for allowing me to be apart of your diversification and expansion of the definition of beauty. Can’t wait to keep doing amazing things with you.
