Meet Our September Cover Star

7 things you need to know about our September cover star, Zendaya

Actress, singer and activist Zendaya Coleman graces the September cover of COSMO and we couldn’t be more excited. The 19-year-old wears many hats — so we decided we should let you in on some of the things you might not know about the Disney child star.

1. She’s recently launched a footwear line called The Sole of Daya – named after her family’s nickname for her. Her collections consist of high heels, flats and sandals. Zendaya says about her line, ‘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.’

2. One of her favourite things to do is beating her own face and sharing it on social media. At this year’s Billboard Music Awards, she looked flawless in a peach Calvin Klein dress and she did her own makeup – can you say perfection?

Face beat by yours truly? #waitsforstanstocussmeoutaboutnotdoinatutorialyet ???

3. Race issues, body shaming, ignorant rape insults — Zendaya is a clap back queen. She recently shut down a guy who tried to insult her saying she looks like ‘a gay dude wearing makeup’. She responded:

4. And then there was that time she showed up at the Oscars rocking dreadlocks. Soon after, Barbie made a doll modelled after her with the same look, highlighting the importance of representation from one of the most famous toys and issues around the perception of beauty.


5. Zendaya is a lover of dogs and has one fluffy buddy named Noon, but she had us all in our waterworks after she lost her best friend, Night – they’d been together since she was 8 years old *sniffle sniffle*. #RIPNight


6. Family first – in her busy schedule, Zendaya finds time to clean the house and play with her niece. All together now: aaaaaaw.

7. Last but certainly not least, she has bagged a new role in the new Spider-Man Homecoming film set to release in July 2017. She will be starring as the love interest of the main character, Peter Parker. Slay kween!
