Zendaya's CoverGirl Campaign Is Going to Be All Kinds of Awesome (VIDEO)

Score one for strong, opinionated, beautiful women everywhere! The gorgeous Zendaya is the new face of CoverGirl, and we couldn't be more thrilled with the cosmetics company for bringing her on. Zendaya has never been afraid to speak her mind and stand up for herself, and she does it with such class that we can't help but admire her.


The 19-year-old made the announcement via her Instagram account on Thursday, and from the looks of it, she's going to bring a fresh fierceness to the brand.

I love how she looks gorgeous in dramatic hair and makeup, and with a natural look. She's never been afraid to be herself, even when it meant subjecting herself to ridicule. Like at last year's Academy Awards, when she sported some long, thick dreads, and subsequently was made fun of for smelling like "weed and patchouli oil."

She handled that situation like a boss, which is one of many reasons I'm thrilled to have her as a role model for girls. Her message seems to be that you should always be true to yourself, and that's something we could always use more of in the world.

As for joining CoverGirl, the K.C. Undercover star considers it a privilege. In a press release, she stated, "I am so honored to join the company of a roster as celebrated and diverse as CoverGirl's ... I can't wait to share some of my own beauty tips with fans, and work alongside CoverGirl to continue empowering girls and women to celebrate their individuality."

Now that's a message I think we can all get behind. We're looking forward to her first TV commercial, which will air during the Grammys on February 15.
