Zendaya, 20, looks absolutely flawless on the cover of ‘Seventeen’ mag for the October ’16 issue. She is decked out in red and white polka dots and sneakers and we love it! She had so much to say in this issue from being friends with Bella Thorne, 18, and starring in a movie. What do you guys think of Zendaya’s amazing new cover — do you love it?
How adorable does Zendaya look on the ‘Social Media’ issue of Seventeen?! She rocked an oversized red and white polka dot sweater with a matching sheer polka dot dress underneath. We love that she topped the look off with a pair of Jordan sneakers.
Zendaya’s second look for the spread, just might be our favorite! She rocked a full sky-blue ensemble. She donned a loose silk blouse which she tucked into skin-tight matching leather skinny pants, and draped an oversized blazer over her shoulders. We love how she accessorized with an edgy star choker necklace and a black belt.
Not only did Zendaya look fabulous in the spread, she had so much to say about all different aspects of her life! She gave great advice about being critical on herself, “Like, the way I see it in my head, I should be nothing shy of Beyoncé. But you can’t freakin’ put that much pressure on yourself. That doesn’t mean don’t strive for the best, because you should… Sometimes I need to realize that I’m human. I’m doing pretty good.”
It’s hard to believe that Zendaya could ever be insecure because she carries herself so well and is so confident. She explained her insecurities, “I hold myself to such ridiculously high standards that if I don’t meet or surpass them, I doubt myself. That fear of not being as good as you want to be can limit you from doing things. I feel a lot of people doubt me in the acting space because I’ve never done a big movie, and that’s why I’m excited about doing Spider-Man—I have no preconceived notions about how I’m supposed to deal with it. But I auditioned just like everybody else, and clearly I did something right.”
If you’re like us and are obsessed with Zendaya on social media, then you’re going to love this. “People can really see my personality on Snapchat. I like to be funny and make people laugh. Twitter is where I interact with my fans and get to know what they’re into. I kind of stalk them. I’ll send a little ‘Hey, girl’ or favorite their tweet.” As for how she deals with the negative comments on her social media posts, “I’m not really a comment reader because what I post on Instagram is about my outfit or my faith, and those are things that no one can tell me anything about. If I like it, I like it. But if I’m posting something that is political, sometimes I do read comments to see what people are talking about and thinking.”
Lastly, the burning question we’re all dying to know — is she still BFF with Bella Thorne!? “Yeah! We’ll post things to each other on social media, but we know everybody’s looking at that, so if she wants to talk, she’ll call me or text me.”
Wow, we love Zendaya so much and she looks gorgeous in this new spread — do you agree?
