Let it be known that I am a huge fan of Zendaya Coleman, who's nearly six years younger than me. I can't help it — Not only does she slay every single outfit, but her love for herself and confidence are truly inspiring. And Zendaya's Valentine's Day gift to herself proves just that: A gorgeous pink mini Chanel that I'm basically drooling over.
While the black leather is a classic and will literally never go out of style, I love a little pop of color, too. And so does Zendaya, evidently. Though she's only 19 years old, she's a serious fashion inspiration for me. Scroll through her Instagram feed, and you'll see all of her greatest hits, whether she's dolled up on the Red Carpet, or showing off her off-duty, totally badass looks.
Some of my favorites include a cinched denim jumpsuit paired with sky-high platforms, an army green, trench-style dress, and of course, her legendary tiered burgundy dress she wore at the Golden Globes. Basically, she's not afraid to take a risk, and it always, always works for her, whether that's in the form of her outfits, or her hair and beauty looks. How can you not pull something off if you've got that confidence?
This Valentine's Day, rather than playing it safe with a classic, she went for the ultimate pop: This beautiful bag that I'll now be dreaming of in my sleep.
In her photo, Zendaya paired her new gift with what looks like a royal blue skirt, crop top, minimalist rings, and fierce nails. Knowing her super eclectic, yet sexy sense of style, she'll end up pairing this purse with many, many to-die-for ensembles.
Wouldn't it look just divine with her American Music Awards all-pink lace dress by Emanuel Ungaro?
Brb, dying. All I know is she'll be toting this little cutie around with her super edgy pixie cut. As a New York City resident who's pledged my whole life to neutral hues, most specifically black, she's making me reconsider my whole palette. Thanks, Z.
