Zendaya is heating up ahead of summer!
The glossy excitingly unveiled their new cover star on Thursday, and after seeing the final shots, it's easy to see why. Doesn't Z look amazing??
The actress showed off her long, glowing stems and her beautiful smile, all while dressed in a fuchsia tuxedo dress and matching lace-up pumps.
Her spread is just as fabulous… well, at least from the peek we've seen! For now, we'll just have to make do with what we can get, like Zendaya's revealing interview!
Speaking on wanting to being in love over having a casual hookup, she confessed:
"Me, personally? I would much rather be in love and have the full experience with the person I'm doing that with. Everyone deserves to be in love—it's different from when you're with someone you don't really know. But as long as you protect yourself and get tested periodically, then by all means, go ahead and do what you've got to do!"
Read on for even more HIGHlights from her July issue…
On the election and voting: "There's really crazy stuff happening right now, and it's disappointing, sad, and scary. My generation, we really have to step up to the plate and vote. Tweeting is great—people say, Oh, I don't want this or that—but at the end of the day, tweeting isn't a ballot. Just saying that you don't like someone on Twitter is not going to turn a state blue or red. You have to vote."
On her return to Disney as the star and coproducer of K.C. Undercover: "The only way I was going to come back to the Disney Channel was if I was in a position of more power. One thing that is really important to me is diversity on the channel. It's hard as a young person of a different ethnicity or background to look at the TV and not see anyone who looks like you. Representation is very important."
On a situation on-set with someone being racially insensitive: "I didn't like my hair and makeup one time on a photo shoot, and my publicist told me, ‘You should just be happy with it—they haven't had a black girl on the cover since forever.' She's no longer my publicist."
Zendaya is so inspiring!
