Zendaya: Comfort isn’t my priority

Published 17/06/2015


Zendaya isn’t worried about how comfortable her shoes are on the red carpet as her main objective is to get a good photo.

The 18-year-old actress-and-singer is known for her unique sense of style. And she says that when it comes to dressing for events, standing out is always at the top of her priority list.

“On a red carpet I pretty much don’t care about my comfort any more,” Zendaya told at the Children Mending Heart's 7th Annual Empathy Rocks Fundraiser. “It could be the most uncomfortable thing… but as long as I get that picture I’m good!”

Zendaya also revealed details of her upcoming shoe line, which she is working on with her stylist Law Roach.

And while she can handle the most excruciating pair of heels, the star is planning to ensure her own designs are both comfortable and stylish.

“We’re going to work on the comfort,” she laughed. “I want to make sure that ladies can wear them for a little longer than two minutes!”

Zendaya has made a name for herself as a fashionista over the past few years. And she is hoping that coming up with her shoe range will give her the chance to design all the heels she has wanted for previous events.

“It’s very, very exciting for me because we get to create all the shoes that we couldn’t find for our outfits. I wanted to create something of quality that was good, solid, classic, beautiful shoes for women that don’t want to spend a ka-trillion dollars,” she said.

“We want good shoes and we want them to last and we want them to look good, but we don’t want to break the bank – so it’s for the working woman, it’s for the girl in college, it’s for the high school prom – it’s for all that kind of stuff.”
