We are so loving Mattel for this.

The company created a one-of-a-kind Barbie for Zendaya to honor her for encouraging girls to "raise their voices," and if that isn't fab enough, the doll is also rocking our girl's now famous Vivienne Westwood Oscars look, complete with dreadlocks.

The Barbie will be presented to the K.C. Undercover star at the Barbie Rock 'N Royals Concert Experience Saturday at the Hollywood Palladium, where she will host the event.

"When I was little, I didn't have one that looked like me, so I couldn't connect with her in that way," she told Yahoo. "But getting to visit the Mattel offices and see Barbie's vision for the future... it was really cool. I was able to see how they plan to diversify, broadening the horizons and the image of Barbie, and make it more, you know, open. I left the office feeling it was definitely something I wanted to be a part of."

Earlier this year, Fashion Police host Giuliana Rancic stirred up controversy after saying on the E! show that Zendaya's Oscars hair made her look like she smelled like "patchouli oil and weed." Zendaya responded on Instagram the next day, writing, "There is already harsh criticism of African American hair in society without the help of ignorant people who choose to judge others based on the curl of their hair." "My wearing my hair in locs on an Oscar red carpet was to showcase them in a positive light, to remind people of color that our hair is good enough," she continued. Giuliana later apologized for the misstep.

Unfortunately, the Zendaya Barbie doll will not be available to the public, so we won't have the chance to scoop one up ourselves. Here's hoping Mattel changes its mind on that and puts that doll into production.
