Anyone who has seen Zendaya knows that there is something special about her. She started her career at a young age as a model and back-up dancer, where her talents were soon noticed, and then made it big as a Disney-channel star. Even at the young age of just 22, she has been outspoken about issues affecting women and wears the label ‘feminist’ with pride. She also knows how to rock a red carpet like nobody’s business and make sure all eyes are on her. Can you tell we’re fans?
The Face of Beauty
As if her career wasn’t blowing up enough as it is, beauty giant Lancôme announced on Friday that Zendaya was their newest brand ambassador, joining the likes of Julia Roberts, Lupita Nyong’o, Penelope Cruz and Kate Winslet.
‘It’s a huge honour to be able to represent a brand like Lancôme and join such an incredible line-up of iconic women,’ she claims. And we have no doubt that she will do the role proud!
Françoise Lehmann, Lancôme’s international president, said: ‘We look forward to a joyous future with Zendaya, whose charisma, influence in film, music and fashion is undoubted. Zendaya brings a youthful and a unique approach to beauty that perfectly complements Lancôme’s vision and creativity.’
The role that has been bestowed on her is not just about being a pretty face. It is her philanthropic commitment as well as using her voice as a way to promote education and positivity that makes her a cut above the rest, and the kind of women that should be made the face and focus of campaigns, beauty or otherwise.
Now that the big announcement has been made, we are waiting with bated breath to see what Lancôme X Zendaya have in store for us this year. Because if Zendaya is selling it – we’re buying it!
