Los Angeles – Singer and actress Zendaya’s new lookalike Barbie doll is now here.
Barbie debuted the doll on September 26th at the Barbie Rock ‘N Royals Concert Experience in Los Angeles. The doll is wearing a replica of Zendaya’s Vivienne Westwood gown that she wore to the 2015 Oscars.
Zendaya’s look that night was critiqued by host of E’s Fashion Police, Giuliana Rancic.
She stated, “She has just such a tiny frame that this hair, to me, overwhelms her. I feel like she smells like patchouli oil. Or weed! Yeah, maybe weed?”
Zendaya fired back via Twitter and Rancic later apologized for the comments.
Zendaya posted several pictures of herself with her new doll on her Instagram account over the weekend and appears to be honored and humbled by her new mini-me.
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😘😘😘 #besuper @luxurylaw @theshelbyswain
