    Barbie has a new limited edition doll in the likeness of singer Zendaya at last year’s Oscars, and it’s totally beautiful.

    The doll was created to promote the Rock ’n Royals concert at the Hollywood Paladium on September 26. Zendaya posted a photo on Instagram with an inspiring message:

    “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 a part of your diversification and expansion of the definition of beauty.”

    This particular look, with her hair in long dreadlocks, was the subject of controversy last year when Giuliana Rancic of E!’s Fashion Police said Zendaya looked like she “smelled like patchouli oil or weed.” Zendaya handled the racially-offensive comment graciously and stood up for people of color who are proud of their natural hair, and Rancic eventually apologized.
