Zendaya shared her thoughts on fronting the ad campaign for the fashion house’s iconic handbag in an interview with Vogue.

“I remember growing up around LV campaigns,” Zendaya said. “There was this one that I loved from the early 2000s of Naomi Campbell, and she’s like sprawled out over a trunk. I can still see it. I can see the image in my head and I remember seeing it in magazines as a kid.”

She discussed her appreciation of fashion’s transformative quality and how she uses it to create characters.
