Zendaya: Embrace who you are

Zendaya thinks people should do “whatever the heck” they want when it comes to fashion.

The 18-year-old is fast becoming a red carpet sensation in the fashion stakes. And during a chat with the American edition of Harper’s Bazaar, the beauty revealed how she approaches her wardrobe.

“I would say, my style is pretty fearless, definitely unique but still classic,” she said. “I like to think of myself as a strong influence for young people, and I think a big thing about being young is finding out who you are, experimenting, not being afraid to try things, and not being afraid to really embrace who you are and what makes you happy. And I think fashion is a big part of that.”

Zendaya made headlines earlier this year after Fashion Police host Giuliana Rancic made a derogatory comment about her Academy Awards look. The singer gave a mature, measured response and she believes everyone should dress how they want, not for others.

“You don't have to care about what people think or let people determine your happiness. Do whatever the heck you want,” she added.

For the publication, Zendaya wore three looks that sum up her style. One was a Dinner with Friends look, which saw the beauty wear her hair in big curls. Zendaya regularly changes her tresses and added that it’s just another way of experimenting.

“I really don't have any fear especially when it comes to like my style,” she said. “Someone could literally tell me ‘Put on a trash bag and wear some Louboutins’ and I would do it, and I would feel comfortable in it—as long as I had the right hair, the right make up, I would do it.”
