Zendaya: Madonna is a trendsetter

Zendaya's stylist is sometimes afraid of the looks the young star wants to wear.

The 18-year-old has been making a name for herself recently with her wardrobe choices. Her looks were thrust into the limelight in February, after Fashion Police host Giuliana Rancic stated Zendaya's Oscars outfit and dreadlock hairstyle made her appear as though she smelt of weed.

Pushing the fashion envelope isn't daunting for the young star though.

"I think Madonna has always been someone who kind of, you know, created her own trends and kind of went against the norm. I think she paved the way in fashion for a lot of people," she told The Hollywood Reporter.

Zendaya has been the face of Madonna's Material Girl clothing line since 2014, so has seen the Queen of Pop's fashion world firsthand.

Revealing she has a "big say" in every aspect of her life, Zendaya - who has been working with The Disney Channel since 2010 - admits her team can be wary of her choices.

"Sometimes [my stylist] will be afraid of a look, like, ‘Hmm, I’m worried that this won’t work,' and I’m like, ‘You know, what are you afraid of, who cares?’

"I’m 18, I’m having fun with fashion and I get to experiment with different looks, and I think that, while you still can, why not?” she said.

As well as acting and singing, Zendaya has recently turned her hand to design with her own shoe line, with stylist Law Roach. The collection will debut in August.
