Zendaya looks stunning for her HungerTV close-up in this new behind-the-scenes video of her Vivienne Westwood feature, given exclusively to JustJaredJr.com.
Here’s what the 19-year-old actress/singer, who was styled by Kim Howells and directed by Rankin, had to share:
On the music industry: “The challenge that I think young musicians face is that it is hard to stay with your vision, because everyone has an opinion and everyone has an opinion on how they see your career should go and sometimes you just got to stick with your gut instinct and stick with your personal vision, [because] you gotta live with it and your life and your decisions. So make sure you stick with it.”
On who inspires her: “Obviously Vivienne Westwood. I am inspired by her just because her stuff is so different and I think she is never trying to be different like it is just effortless to her. “I can connect to that, as Its like me and my stylist when we get ready for red carpets, we are like not trying to do something different we are just being ourselves and having fun with fashion and never pushing too hard.”
On whether musicians should be role models: “I don’t think it is important to be a role model, [because] if you are a role model you are pretending to be someone else and I don’t think any artist should be pretending to be anyone but themselves. I try not to be a role model. I try to be a real model and be yourself and try to be the best you can be.”

Zendaya gets silly in this behind-the-scenes shot from her Madame Tussaud’s wax figure measurements.
The 19-year-old signer/actress was just announced as the latest celeb to get not just one, but TWO wax figures at Madame Tussauds San Francisco and Madame Tussauds Orlando.
Zendaya met with skilled studio artists back in June where she underwent the unique experience of a Madame Tussauds sitting, capturing her expressions, poses, taking more than 250 measurements and matching eye color and hair color.
“Working with the Madame Tussauds team was such an amazing honor, they really took the time to capture every detail, including all the natural features that make up the real me,” Zendaya shared in a statement. “It feels even more special to know that my beautiful fans worked so hard to make this happen and I’m excited to see how they will react to my new figures in San Francisco and Orlando.”
Zendaya‘s Madame Tussaud’s San Francisco figure will make it’s debut next week!
