Zendaya's Body-Positive Red Carpet Message Is Total Perfection


Zendaya, our favorite truth speaker and recent high school graduate, was without a doubt a standout at last night’s BET awards.

Wearing a sparkling mini dress that showed off her never-ending legs and higher-than-high heels, the singer took to social media to call out just how tall she is and how happy she is about it—writing, "Yes...I'm a tall 6'4" (with these heels) skinny glass of sparkling water and I love it. #bodylove." With that hashtag, Zendaya joins Ariana Grande—and thousands of others!—in using Instagram to spread body-positivity.

At 5'10", Zendaya is naturally tall, but if my math still serves me, those heels had to be a solid six inches to take her to 6’4”. Whoa.

So, not only do we commend her for continuing to spread body-positivity, but also on being able to walk for a night in those, AND for being a tall girl who doesn't shy away from shoes that make her even taller.
