Zendaya

A doll of young actress and singer, Zendaya, was created out of a not so pleasant situation, where the young star attended the Oscars a couple of years ago with dreads in her hair, hoping to show all hairstyles can be beautiful. However, some controversy was created when a TV personality commented on her hair, saying she also expected her hair to smell like patchouli oil and weed, which people did not take well to, including Zendaya, who responded with a letter, explaining her choice of hairstyle for the event, and wanting to give a positive message with it. Mattel chose to respond to the situation by helping Zendaya to share her message of beauty, by creating a one of a kind doll in her likeness from the Oscars. To date, it still unfortunately seems to be a one of a kind, made specifically for her. We can only hope they may choose to make more and make it available to the public, as it’s a gorgeous doll.
