Confession: We might actually subscribe to the upcoming Zendaya app. If her Snapchat content is any indication, the experience is sure to be filled with spot-on karaoke sessions, hilarious one-liners and impeccable style moments.
We’re hoping and praying that some of the promised behind-the-scenes footage follows the actress slash musician slash shoe designer to Capri, where she recently filmed Dolce & Gabbana’s Summer 2017 campaign. Zendaya is one of the many #DGMillenials — “a selection of young influencers who thanks to their discerning style and Instagram prowess are challenging the norms of contemporary communication,” as described by the Italian fashion house’s website — to star in the accessories and gelato-heavy ads. (Looks like Dolce & Gabbana is now taking its marketing cues from Alexander Wang.)
This season around, rather than floral crowns, campaign stars are touting more wearable headgear. Case in point: In two #BTS shots, Z is seen licking a rapidly melting cone wearing (surprise, surprise) chic, street-ready PJs in a pattern that celebrates her dessert of choice. The beauty muse’s brunette waves are held back by a scarf tied headband-style a la Brigitte Bardot. Complementing her print-happy silks are oversized sunnies and a baby blue statement clutch.
In another vibrant photo, Zendaya channels Carmen Miranda. Her printed long-sleeved dress matches the scarf tied atop her head in a voluminous bow. Daya’s low side bun, weighty black and gold cross earrings and tasseled tambourine up the samba singer vibes. On her feet are D&G’s answer to the ever-popular Stan Smith — colorblocked, logo-embellished red and white tennis sneaks.

Zendaya’s campaign co-stars include a raft of social media influencers (who just so happen to be celebrity and fashion world spawn). Cameron Dallas, Luka Sabbat, Presley Gerber, Gabriel Kane, Rafferty Law, Brandon Thomas Lee, Sonia Ben Ammar and Thylane Blondeau all brought their formidable internet followings to the casting table.
OK, so not all of the accessories were exactly day-to-night (crown headphones, anyone?). Regardless, stalk the Insta-royalty for more snaps from the set and stock up on silk scarves, like, yesterday.
