Zendaya ESSENCE Cover OnoBello (3)

Zendaya has left the internet stunned after appearing on three new ESSENCE’s digital covers where she slayed the magazine’s special issue for its 50th-anniversary celebration in picturesque black and white imagery.

In the November/December collector’s edition, the multi-talented American actress, singer and producer talks about her history-making win as the youngest woman ever to win the Emmy for outstanding actress in a drama for her role in the Euphoria series, her support for young black designers and black photographers who lack support in Hollywood, the significance of her win to young black creatives and much more.

Zendaya who knows how to own a magazine spread paid homage to the ’60s icon Donyale Luna generally cited as the first black supermodel and the first black model to cover British Vogue and recreated some of her most groundbreaking photos.

She was styled by the talented designer Law Roach who did an excellent job in recreating uncannily similar outfits to Donyale’s past shoots. The full story in the new issue will be available 24th of November.
