Zendaya is the cover star for the September 2020 issue of In Style. For the issue, Zendaya choose to work with a team of Black creatives for the photoshoot.
She worked with her longtime stylist Law Roach and photography duo Ahmad Barber and Donté Maurice. The issue will be available on August 21.
Zendaya spoke with activist and Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors about everything from her new projects, to coping with anxiety, and about racial injustice. Zendaya talked about why she chose to work with an all-Black team for this cover.
"I've always had a Black stylist and Black hair and makeup artists. But we were able to work with two talented young Black photographers on this shoot too," Zendaya told Cullors. "We're actually around the same age, so it was cool to be with my peers and have an opportunity to show what we can do."
Law Roach picked pieces for her and they all come from Black designers. Some of the pieces are from Jason Rembert, Christopher John Rogers, Cushnie, and Pyer Moss.
“I’m an actress, but I’m also just a person who has a heart and wants to do the right thing. I care about human beings, so this time is very hard to talk about. It’s painful.” pic.twitter.com/gjjU4RpIsI— InStyle (@InStyle) August 6, 2020
