BET AWARDS '14 - Debra Lee's Pre-Dinner - Red Carpet Arrivals

19 year old Zendaya Coleman just received one of the biggest honors of all time- that is having her own Barbie doll, which is pretty iconic. The actress share her doll who model after her oscars look on Sept. 26 at her Rock’N Royals event. Zendaya took to her instagram to post a side by side picture of her and her doll as well and an inspiring message as the caption.

What a great way to say thank you and to be an inspiration for young girls. The doll doesn’t only represent her beautiful Vivienne Westwood look but it also celebrates diversity. Growing up most of the barbie dolls of color had straight hair and eurocentric features. It’s amazing to see that now a lot more dolls are representing different people and setting new beauty standards, letting little girls know that beauty isn’t one look, it’s multiple looks. I can say that I am proud of Zendaya and Mattel for creating this doll and hopefully we can see more diverse dolls in the market and help empower all young women.

Check out the amazing doll and Zendaya’s message below.
