Zendaya Stuns As The Newest Face Of Valentino!

Zendaya for Valentino

This year has been quite the year for Zendaya Coleman, first by making history as the youngest actress to receive the Emmy for Oustanding Leading Actress In A Drama Series at just age 24 for her role as gritty Rue Bennett on HBO's Euphoria. But outside of acting, Zendaya has been continuing to make a huge impact within the fashion and beauty industries by becoming the youngest Global Brand Ambassador for French Cosmetic company Lancome and becoming the newest Global Brand Ambassador for Italian Luxury jewelry label BVLGARI. Now that work is continuing for Zendaya, she has just been announced as the new face of Valentino's Italian clothing label.

Valentino, under the brand's Creative Director Pierpaolo Piccioli, has revamped the brand's meaning and core identity when it comes to the forefront of representing diversity within the fashion industry by having a variety of models of all ethnicities walking in their runway shows and fronting their ad campaigns. Being that Zendaya is a champion of diversity and inclusion with every fashion collaboration that she makes, and being a huge advocate for human rights, Piccioli himself saw that she was the perfect fit to represent this new era of Valentino.

"The reason why we chose Zendaya as the new face for Valentino is because she perfectly embodies and represents what Valentino stands for today. She is a powerful and fierce young woman that uses her talent and her work to express herself, her values, and her generation as well." Pierpaolo Piccioli

"I am honored to have been chosen as the face of Valentino. I'm so excited to begin this amazing collaboration with Pierpaolo and the entire Valentino family" - Zendaya Coleman

"The perception of identity within the contemporary community is the essential element of Piccioli's creative process, which opens the individual's vision to a poetry that belongs to reality, that aims to the creation of a personal imagery made of self-expression and not of aspirations. An imagery of where it is possible to feel empathy. Awareness, inclusion, empathy and contemporary romanticism are the values that creative director conveys to the Valentino community" - Valentino

As for the actual fashion within the Ad Campaign, which was Lensed by fashion photographer Michael Bailey Gates and styled by her very own Image Architect LAW Roach, with hair and makeup by Kim Kimble and Sheika Daley, Zendaya is seen wearing two key looks from Valentino's Resort 2021 RTW Collection. The first look is the "Cady Couture Cape Dress" with the "Roman" Stud Handbag in White


For the second look, she is wearing a black lace two-piece which consists of the Valentino Lace Blouse, and the Cropped Wide-Leg Pants.
