Zendaya Coleman at Beautycon Festival – Red Carpet Pics Here!

Zendaya Coleman attended the Beautycon festival in New York on Sunday, where as the keynote speaker she gave a speech based on the unacceptable beauty standards set by Hollywood. In her speech, Zendaya among other things stated, “If the opportunity isn’t there, we will pave the way for our opportunity. And not just opportunity for myself, but for my entire community. As a black woman, as a light-skinned black woman, it’s important that I say ‘listen, I’m using my privilege and my platform to show you how much beauty there is the African-American community.”

She continued, “I always find it weird that Hollywood, I wish you guys could be in these meetings, but I am Hollywood’s, I guess you could say, acceptable version of a black girl, and that has got to change. We’re vastly too beautiful and too interesting for me to be the only representation of that. But what I’m saying is about creating those opportunities, you have to create the path, and that’s with anything, whether it be Hollywood, art, whatever, sometimes you just got create your own.”

To these words coming from the young star in relation to beauty, its standard of acceptance and of rejection, the crowd stood and cheered.

Styled by Law Roach, Zendaya hit the red carpet at the event in an Akris Wooden Doll Print Chiffon Gown from the brand’s 2018 Collection. Check out her pictures below.
