Zendaya channeled her inner 1970s diva, donning a full Afro wig during her latest shoot for Vibe Vixen magazine. The publication not only photographed the 18-year-old for the December issue, but also interviewed her beloved stylist Law Roach.
Law recounts how he first met Zendaya five years ago:
The story of how we met is actually really funny. I was doing personal shopping in L.A. for a friend of her families and ended up meeting her dad. He was a very nice gentleman and told me about his daughter Zendaya and how she was an upcoming, multi-talented star. Interestingly enough, Zendaya was set to attend the premiere for Justin Bieber’s Never Say Never the next day. Her father contacted me to style her for the premiere and I met her at the mall where we clicked right away. She trusted my fashion expertise and I must say she had a dope sense of style to only be 14-years-old. From that moment I knew she had quality, star potential and was someone I wanted to work with long term.
On how he would describe Zendaya’s style in 3 words:
Young, chic, and sophisticated.
On his thoughts about her being the face of Madonna’s Material Girl:
I love her being the cover girl of Material Girl because it really speaks to who Zendaya is. Most times celebrities endorse brands that aren’t true to them and it’s almost like selling out. Material Girl on the other hand offers trendy, fashion-forward fashions for the teen and young adult girl just like Zendaya. I like to call Material Girl the Ungaro of Macy’s, as it combines great quality and design for an affordable price. Not every young girl can afford to go out and buy an Ungaro dress like Zendaya, but with Material Girl we are giving girls that opportunity at a budget friendly price.
