Twitter user scores modeling job thanks to Zendaya

One Twitter user’s day — and possibly life — was completely changed, thanks to Zendaya.

According to The Cut, “Actress, activist, and burgeoning fashion mogul Zendaya caught sight of a nasty, body-shaming tweet on her timeline” that singled out a user with the Twitter handle “@_illestCee.”

After @_illestCee posted several photos of herself on the social networking site, another account mockingly warned people to “never trust a top half posting ass female,” says The Cut.

Noticing the negative comments, Zendaya not only called out the naysayer on her own Twitter while also complimenting the photos posted by @_illestCee, The Cut says Zendaya took her actions one step further, tweeting that she wanted to hire the woman to model for her Daya by Zendaya fashion line.

The woman behind @_illestCee replied saying she was “speechless,” and had always wanted to be a plus-size model.

She can now mark that dream as “complete.”

Zendaya launches new clothing line

First a shoe collection, and now a full clothing line —all brought to you by the always-fashionable Zendaya.

According to Vogue, the 20-year-old multi-hyphenate launched her new Daya by Zendaya clothing line on Friday, Nov. 4. Developed alongside personal stylist Law Roach, Vogue says that the collection is a reflection of her own street style, featuring everything from “casual tanks and easy white button-down blouse” to “cool look-at-me statement pieces” such as a “velvet green jumpsuit and blush pink slip dress with slinky side slits.”

One thing Zendaya makes sure the line is not, however, is trendy. Although this may sound counterintuitive, she explained it to Vogue this way:

“One thing Law and I really hate are trends…We just don’t believe in them, we don’t believe in what’s hot now because you can’t stay on top of all of the constant changes in fashion. It’s just impossible.”

In that vain, Zendaya told the magazine that her line is all about mixing and matching different pieces to create your own look.

“Clothes are supposed to be emotional. There is no right or wrong, no singular style,” she told Vogue. “I went through a phase as a teenager, and I think everyone does, when I actually gave a shit about what people thought. Ultimately I grew up and realized that was no fun.”

But that’s not the only worthwhile thing about the new collection. Vogue says pieces from the line start at $18 and goes up to $158 and even runs from sizes 0 to 22 — style for all budgets and sizes.

New styles for ‘Daya by Zendaya’

Following the initial release of her new shoe collection, Zendaya is already teasing new styles for the line — and they can’t be released fast enough.

According to InStyle, the 19-year-old multi-hyphenate took to Instagram to share an inside look at the new styles that are set to be included in her “Daya by Zendaya” shoe collection.

A caption simply saying, “So much to come” accompanied a video that panned over “some gorgeous over-the-knee stiletto boots, peep-toe mules, military-style lace-up booties, and many more fierce pairs,” reports InStyle.

The line, available at Nordstrom, retails between $70 and $110, offering luxurious styles and trendy looks for much less than pricey designer pieces.

Luxe for less by Zendaya

Luxury doesn’t have to cost a fortune — that seems to be the motto of Zendaya‘s new shoe line.

According to InStyle, the 19-year-old actress recently launched a new shoe collection called “Daya by Zendaya,” which offers of-the-moment styles at affordable prices. Available at Nordstrom, InStyle says the line ranges in price from $70 to $110, holding true to its mission of providing luxurious looks for less.

Speaking on the importance of creating an affordable line, Zendaya told InStyle, “The average woman can not just go out and buy however many Christian Louboutins they want … But they want that luxury and they want that feeling, and I think they deserve that as well.”

But when it comes to her source of inspiration when designing the line, she said she had her family in mind. “I was inspired by the women in my life,” she told InStyle, “my oldest sister, my niece, my little nieces who will soon be wearing heels, you know, because they’re all working women who are either in college, or a mother, or a young girl who is still in school and about to go to her first school dance.”

Featuring pointed-toe heels, trendy lace-ups and heeled booties, Zendaya worked with her personal stylist, Law Roach, to create the diverse, yet trendy offering, according to InStyle, making sure that the line reflects her unique fashion aesthetic.

Always one to create “fashion moments,” Zendaya told InStyle that her shoe line not only reflects that point of view, it also aims to excite people about fashion. “We don’t have rules or any really rhyme or reason as to why we do things,” she said to InStyle. “We just do it because it feels good, and I think that’s how people should just dress in general.”
