Zendaya will be featured in next month’s issue of Allure. Check out the cover and photo session from the spread as well as a cute interview snippet. I’ll add scans as soon as I can.
Zendaya was at the 2019 People’s Choice Awards where she won for her roles in Euphoria and Spiderman. Check out photos in our gallery of her at the event as well as videos of her speeches.
Zendaya is featured in the new issue of The Hollywood Reporter. I’ve added scans and the photo session to the gallery. She looks lovely.
The 23-year-old star-producer’s profile (and bankability) continues to grow with the announcement of a Lancôme contract in February, a second fashion collection with Tommy Hilfiger and well-reviewed turns in Spider Man: Far From Home and HBO’s Euphoria. With her confident delivery of stellar red carpet looks and a following that numbers 61.8 million on Instagram, Zendaya “has netted Lancôme over 3 billion digital impressions, at an earned media value of over $86 billion,” says Stacy Jones, CEO of marketing agency Hollywood Branded. Her feed has even featured the occasional updo, which the actress used “to be against,” says Stephen. “I always heard her say, ‘My edges look so thin.’ I said, ‘You haven’t had my ponytail.'”
TOP RED CARPET LOOK Channeling Cinderella — or Zenderella, as Daley called it — for a camp-themed Met Gala look exemplified the actress’ “transition from childhood life to her adulthood.” Zendaya’s stylist Law Roach masterminded the princess-blue Tommy Hilfiger gown, which lit up as Zendaya arrived on the red carpet. Says Daley, “Law wanted to embody the whole look from the movie, from the dress to the hair to the makeup,” which included blue shades from Lancôme’s Teal Fury shadow palette. For her Instagram fans, Zendaya, a former child star who became famous for her roles on Disney Channel’s Shake It Up and K.C. Undercover, acknowledged the symbolism: “A fairy-tale ending to my Disney days.”
The Euphoria star-producer’s best advice for red carpet prepping? “Give yourself extra time. However much time you think you need, add an hour,” she says. “I’d much rather be relaxed and chill.” Adds Stephen: “It’s like getting a bride ready for her wedding. It’s an opportunity for everyone — hairstylist, makeup artist, stylist, client — to share their best.”
I’ve added all of the commercials, teasers, and behind the scenes diaries of Zendaya from IDOLE a fragrance by Lancome, to our video vault. You can see one of the 30 second commercials below and the rest here. Screencaps coming soon. Enjoy.
Our video vault has now been launched! It has only 45 videos at the moment but we will be filling it up in the coming weeks so be sure to bookmark it. Enjoy!
Phew. That was a lot.
It felt like Euphoria has graced our screens for both an eternity and a split second, with characters that felt like old friends visiting us for not nearly enough time. On Sunday, the hit HBO series wrapped up its first season with a whirlwind of emotions, and by the time we bid goodbye to Rue (Zendaya) and Jules (Hunter Schafer), we had more questions than answers.
Here are some of the big takeaways from the eighth and final episode, plus questions for what’s coming in season 2.
Caution, spoilers for the season finale ahead! If you haven’t seen it, catch up here.
What happens to Rue?
It seemed like Rue was headed toward healing, what with her attending prom and reuniting with Jules. But the season wraps up on an uncertain note — told through frantic cuts that then transition into a surreal music video, episode 8 finds Rue seemingly relapsing after being abandoned by Jules, and then getting kicked out by her mother. Labrinth and Zendaya’s new song “All for Us” serenades us as Rue is propped up by a crowd of dancers (they’re all wearing her dad’s sweatpants, ahh the emotions!). She rises, then falls into their arms. (Watch the full scene-turned-music video above.)
Unfortunately, Rue’s physical fall could symbolize her descent into an overdose. Rue’s living family members didn’t interact with her at the end, yet her deceased father greeted her warmly. This aligns with previous fan theories that Rue has been dead the entire time, otherwise how would she know intimate details about other characters unless she was omniscient, narrating from above? At this point, it’s anyone’s guess.
Trouble ahead for #Rules
We left episode 7 on shaky ground for Jules and Rue, but Rules shippers probably did a happy squeal when the two shared a kiss at prom and Jules promised that she didn’t wish Rue was different. However, that joy was short-lived as Rue backed out of their plan to head out by themselves into the big city, and Jules leaves her behind.
Some fans were less than pleased about their favorite pair not ending up together, although others cheered for the ending, as many had felt Jules didn’t truly love Rue and unfairly toyed with her emotions by getting together with another girl.
Is Fez okay?
Everyone’s favorite drug dealer, Fez (Angus Cloud), was on his ninja grind tonight, and he ended up beating a man (possibly to death) in front of the man’s son to steal money to pay Mouse. However, his storyline ends on a cliffhanger note that implies the possibility of Mouse shooting him, after he realizes what Fez did to get the money.
From the first episode, Fez’s loyalty and compassion made the character a favorite, and of course the timeline was flooded with fans worried that he would be gone forever.
Nate, Maddy, & more
So Nate (Jacob Elordi) continues to be the worst human, and his reaction to his dad Cal (Eric Dane) getting physical was quite disturbing. But we have a tiny bit of hope that Maddy (Alexa Demie) will take action, now that she has a CD full of evidence against Cal.
We also see Cassie (Sydney Sweeney) swearing off men and about to get the abortion, with no McKay (Algee Smith) in sight this episode. Her sister Lexi proves to be a lovable and wise drunk (we want more Maude Apatow in season 2!), and Kat (Barbie Ferreira) gets one of the only happy endings in the finale, as she opens up to Ethan (Austin Abrams) and they share a kiss.
The finale may leave fans reeling for answers, but one thing we can all agree on: Give Zendaya an Emmy. Give them all Emmys. The makeup, costumes, visuals, and acting have been outstanding, and we can’t wait for season 2.
