Zendaya Channels Grace Jones, Cher, Diana Ross And Brooke Shields In Mane Addicts Photo Shoot

Zendaya As Grace JonesZendaya did her best Grace Jones impression for a Mane Addicts website photo shoot. The actress posted the resulting photo on Instagram with the caption, “Paying homage to the legendary Grace Jones #hightopfaderealness.”

Zendaya, herself, has recently become something of a style icon. Larry Sims, the shoot’s hairstylist, describes the actress as a “creator’s dream.” “She allows you to just go for it and when you think you’ve gone too far, she pushed you to go further,” he continues.
