It's been a over a month since we've seen a magazine featuring Zendaya as its cover star and we've been feeling deprived. Thankfully, Flare knows what the world has been missing and wisely put our girl on its cover.
Rocking a top knot and silver platforms, Zendaya talks about her style and limited-edition Barbie, modeled after her much talked about Oscars look.
“It’s something that is long overdue,” she said. “There have been black Barbies, but not ones with locs or even natural hair or different facial structures. When I was little, I had a Barbie, but I didn’t have a Barbie that looked like me because there was no mixed-girl-with-curly-hair Barbie!”
From her ever-changing hair to her broad range in red carpet style, Zendaya explains how her love of experimenting is part of her desire to expand our ideas of what we consider beautiful.
“A big reason I play with beauty and hair is that it’s important to show different kinds of beauty when I’m on the red carpet. I don’t want to be just one-dimensional or relatable to one type of person," she said. "I want a different woman to be like, 'That’s like me! That’s like my hair!' or 'That’s so my style!'"
Shout out to Flare, for granting us more Zendaya wisdom. Now, where's her next cover?
