The teen star shocked fans when she arrived at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards rocking her new drastic hair cut! Zendaya sported a short, edgy bob with straight bangs. It was definitely jaw-dropping and we just can’t help but wonder if the young actress was inspired by fashion icon and singer, Rihanna!
Zendaya, 17, is proving more and more just how fearless she is with trying out new fashion and beauty trends! She walked the red carpet in a sexy, hot pink dress, but that’s not what caught everyone’s eye — it was her new, short bob! Zendaya must have gotten scissor happy (or had fun trying on wigs) and decided to change up her look, because she hopped on the bob bandwagon!
Zendaya’s Short Bob — Inspired By Rihanna Or Tyra Banks?
Rihanna, who is notoriously known for not being afraid to try ANY type of style, could have been the inspiration for Zendaya’s new ‘do! Rihanna sported a short, curled bob back in 2007 for the American Music Awards, and it looks so similar to Zendaya’s new hair!
We wouldn’t be surprised if she did get her inspiration from Rihanna — she is such a beauty and sets the bar high for new trends!
Another celebrity Zendaya seems to be channeling is the famous model Tyra Banks! Tyra actually uploaded a side by side photo of herself and Zendaya on Instagram and captioned it saying: “@zendaya lookin’ like TyTy’s lil sis at #teenchoiceawards tonight.” The similarity is breath-taking! Tyra and Zendaya are both wearing bright pink dresses, and Zendaya has the same straight bangs and tousled waves look that Tyra sported!
Whether she was inspired by Rihanna, Tyra or someone else, Zendaya is definitely rocking this look with a lot of confidence! She looked so happy in her fashion ensemble on the red carpet and seemed to be in love with her new hair!
We are loving this drastic change — sometimes it’s fun to try something new!
Do you think she was inspired by Rihanna, HollywoodLifers? We’d love to hear your thoughts!
