Zendaya continues to dominate the fashion scene as the former child star sheds her Disney roots to become a grown-up style icon.
The actress, who is about to make her HBO debut on the upcoming Euphoria, is on the June cover of Vogue Magazine. Looking every bit the superstar, Zendaya evokes an image of a bygone era with finger waves and a gold, art-deco inspired gown.

Inside the mag, the actress talks about taking on the role of a teen struggling with drugs for the HBO series.
"It's a totally different thing than being the star of K.C. Undercover," she told Vogue. "That first day on set, I was honest-to-God terrified."
She added that she didn't have much to draw on from her own childhood, which appears to be something of a Hollywood anomaly, free of addiction and high-profile scandals.
@Zendaya is one of the most politically vocal among a crop of "woke" young stars, posting to Instagram in support of Colin Kaepernick, urging her fans to take action when she picked up a Teen Choice Award the day after the deadly alt-right rally in Charlottesville, and-famously-clapping back at E! announcer Giuliana Rancic's barbs about her dreadlocks at the 2015 Academy Awards. That was the first time many people outside the Disney demographic took note of her, thanks to the messages of support she got from the likes of Ava DuVernay, Kerry Washington, and Solange Knowles. The star opens up about taking risks, speaking out-and making your voice heard in the full cover story at the link in our bio.

But that doesn't mean Zendaya isn't aware of the very real issues going on around her. In fact, she's become something of a crusader for social justice issues.
"I keep thinking, Is there a way I can help with this, through art?" she told Vogue. "I mean, obviously, I've got a platform...but I also know, don't just post whatever. You've got to listen to people. Talking is important. But walking the talk is important, too."
Still, the actress also keeps busy with a burgeoning fashion and beauty empire. Most notably, she's recently been named a Lancome ambassador and celebrated the launch of her collection with Tommy Hilfiger, complete with a fashion show in Paris.
“Anything Zendaya does, she does it, you know?” explains her stylist and TommyXZendaya collaborator.
