There's a lot of things Zendaya can do, whether it's belting out tunes or showing off her onscreen charm, but one of her most significant unofficial gigs is being a total fashion role model. Zendaya has significantly stamped her style on every single red carpet she's attended and I can't help but admire every look she takes on. From short up-dos to vintage-themed outfits, Zendaya Coleman definitely knows how to bring her A game at every single event. 

And although her 2015 Oscar outfit may have previously caused controversy with Giuliana Rancic, Zendaya has always remained classy and defended her unique style. She's once said in Jones Magazine, "It is important in this journey to remember that just because someone has inflicted hurt upon us, it does not give us the right to do the same. Body shaming and hurtful tactics will never get the job done."

At only 18-years old, Zendaya has strongly encouraged body positivity that sets an example for anyone at any age to learn from, proving she's a true gem. And whatever style Zendaya chooses to rock, you can expect her to be herself, 100 percent.

She tells Jones Magazine, "I’m one of those people that doesn’t follow trends. I set them.” To prove it, here are the 17 times Zendaya Coleman was a total fashion role model:

1. When she attended this year's Children Mending Heart's 7th Annual Empathy Rocks Fundraiser:
