Zendaya describes herself as “if Beyoncé, Oprah and Shonda Rhimes had a baby,” which sounds about right. At only 19, she’s already become a budding fashion icon, and now she has the shoe line to match.
“For my demographic, I’m catering to real women who work, are getting their first jobs or are in college. I want them to have shoes that make sense for them,” she says in the magazine. “I want women to feel expensive, luxurious and beautiful, but not have to spend three years saving up for one pair of shoes.”
While she has a closet full of Louboutin, Zendaya isn’t looking to just copy high-end brands. “I don’t want to create knockoffs,” she says. “I want to create our own movement and style, even though I don’t believe in trends.”
Daya by Zendaya will be available at Nordstrom, Kohl’s, Von Mauer, zappos.com, and amazon.com.
