Zendaya arrived at the 12th annual CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards dressed in Thakoon print long-sleeve dress and Brother Vellies ‘Dhara’ sandal. The charity event was held at Spring Studios on November 2, 2015 in New York City.
Zendaya covers the new issue of Flare magazine, and in the article she opens up about everything from her style to being a role model.
On being a role model, she says, “In the words of Tupac Shakur: I am a real model because I’m not playing a role and I’m not pretending to be some good kid that’s perfect. It just happens that I’m a good kid, and I don’t do bad stuff and I like to be positive because that’s just how I was raised. I think if I were faking it, then you would’ve seen me break character a long time ago.”
As for her various hairstyles she explains, “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. I want a different woman to be like, That’s like me! That’s like my hair! or That’s so my style! If I went out there and was just like, pretty, all the time, doing the same thing, it can be cool, but you’re also catering to one type of person, and what about all those other kinds of beautiful out there?”
