Style: Glamorous, Fun, Feminine
This week's Style Crush is Zendaya Coleman. Zendaya is a 16-year old American actress, singer, and dancer best known for her starring role as Rocky Blue on Disney Channel's sitcom Shake It Up. At the beginning of her career, Zendaya started as a fashion model for Macy's, Mervyn's, and Old Navy. Even though Zendaya loved fashion, modeling was not all she dreamed of doing. Zendaya went on to be discovered by the same agent who discovered Miley Cyrus. She was then taken into the Disney machine, launching her career as an actress, dancer, singer, and even landing her a book deal. Zendaya's most recent TV appearance was on this past season of Dancing with the Stars, in which Zendaya was not only the youngest contestant to ever be on the show, but also ended up winning 2nd place.
After establishing herself as an actress on a hit TV show and nearly winning Dancing with the Stars, Zendaya has set her sights on publishing her first book (Between U and Me: How to Rock Your Tween Years with Confidence and Style) and is set to release her first album later this year. If the girl can't seem to do enough, she is also in the midst of designing her own fashion line, inspired by her character's clothing on her show, Shake It Up. The line will be designed for active girls and will include athletic apparel and accessories. Zendaya is known for saying, "Fashion is my kryptonite."
