The ‘Euphoria’ star topped the list ahead of Kylie Jenner and singer, Billie Eilish, who came in joint second place, according to research from by Laybuy. Zendaya's style has been hitting the mark for years, so it's no surprise she tops the style list for the youth of today. She's grown up in the spotlight yet managed to perfectly craft a daring style that encapsulates her spirit as a strong and confident young woman today,” celebrity stylist Adele Cany says.
“That balance of strength and femininity is very rare and it's exactly what Gen-Z look up to.”
Zendaya previously admitted it’s a heavy responsibility to be a young black women in Hollywood. “I have a heavy responsibility on my shoulders, but I’m appreciative of that because, with that, there’s a lot of good that I can do, and I know who is watching,” she said.
“I think, like a lot of artists, I’m my biggest critic, so some of it was internal — not wanting to make a mistake or worrying that maybe I didn’t have the room to make a mistake and want to make the right next move. But I also wanted to prove myself.”
