One of our favorite starlets and leading role models is all set to be immortalized the Mattel way.

The official Barbie Twitter account recently made the grand announcement that they were crafting a Zendaya Barbie doll borrowed from her Oscar red carpet look that everyone loved except Giuliana Rancic.

The 19-year-old virtuoso of the arts wore a pearl Vivienne Westwood on music’s biggest night this past February and that is exactly what the Zendaya Barbie doll will be rocking as part of the “Fashionistas” line the iconic brand has been developing. According to the NYDailyNews, there will be twenty-three new dolls in efforts to celebrate diversity that include eight different skin tones, fourteen sculpts, eighteen eye colors and twenty-three hair colors.

“I’m excited to be a part of the new direction the Barbie brand is headed, specifically how they are celebrating diversity in the line and encouraging kids to raise their voices,” the superstar said in a statement. On September 26, she will be hosting the Barbie Rock ‘N Royals Concert Experience at the Hollywood Palladium, which benefits VH1’s Save the Music Foundation.

Despite the magnitude of the announcement, Zendaya’s wins didn’t stop there. She was recently named the new brand ambassador of CHI Haircare. The girl has the glow. You hear that, Giuliana?
