'PAPER' Puts Zendaya On The Most Beautiful List

by Stephanie Chon

In the same issue of PAPER Mag where Kanye West spit some modest knowledge and opened up a lot about his humbling fashion career, Zendaya Coleman appears, representing a beauty that’s not only physical, but also skin-deep. In their latest issue, PAPER Mag names Zendaya Coleman one of the beautiful people of 2015.

Although the starlet started out on Disney's Shake It Up! and K.C. Undercover, Zendaya earned her place on the list because of her budding music career. If you haven't listened, Zendaya is one talented singer, as exemplified on her debut album from 2013. That’s why I’m really looking forward to the album that she’s currently producing and working on. It seems like there’s nothing that this girl can’t do. Despite her young age, this 18-year-old is extremely mature — as we all saw throughout all the Fashion Police drama that went down with Giuliana Rancic.

Still, even with all those qualities and skills, PAPER Mag’s interview with Coleman reveals that her beauty lies within her realness. When she was asked how she plans to transition her career from a budding youthful one to an adult one, she responded by saying she thinks, “the most important thing is to have that balance: for everything to be edgy and different and something that a 25-year-old would want to be a part of, but also at the same time you don't have to cover your eyes when a seven-year-old is watching. I think that's a balance that is really hard for people to find, but I think can be done. So I'm going to do it.” How is she only 18!? Congrats on becoming a part of the Beautiful People Class of 2015!
