Zendaya teased fans on Wednesday saying that something “new” and “beautiful” was on the horizon. We guessed that she had another breathtaking photo shoot or red carpet appearance up her sleeve but the real announcement exceeded our expectations. The 19-year-old is the newest face of Covergirl.
The K.C. Undercover actress joins the ranks of such names as Janelle Monae, Queen Latifah, Ellen Degeneres and Katy Perry. With her natural beauty, unique sense of style, and willingness to speak out on social issues, Zendaya is a perfect fit for the global beauty brand.
“Covergirl celebrates powerful, beautiful, and strong women of different races and ethnicities. It’s inspiring,” the shoe designer told Teen Vogue. “I’m thrilled to be part of the diversity and expansion of beauty.” Zendaya’s first TV commercial for Covergirl will air during the Grammys on February 15. And she’s excited to share “beauty tips with fans” and continue to empower “girls and women to celebrate their individuality,” she said in a press release. We’ll be taking notes.
