Zendaya Stars in Her First Louis Vuitton Ad

Zendaya has a lot to look forward to in 2023. The Golden Globe-winning actor is set to star in two highly anticipated films this year, each helmed by acclaimed directors. First: Challengers

, a tennis drama directed by Luca Guadagino, opens in August. Then, in October, Denis Villeneuve’s ambitious second installment of the sci-fi classic Dune. “I had very special help,” Zendaya says of working with two modern directors. As we speak, the cast is enjoying a rare break in London. “I’m taking a break right now,” Zendaya told Vogue over the phone. “I still have a full year left.”

“Break” is a relative term. Despite her busy schedule, Zendaya recently added another job to her already impressive resume: Louis Vuitton ambassador. It would make sense for one of the world’s most recognizable brands to team up with an actor who consistently leans red carpet fashion in his favor. Over the years—often accompanied by veteran stylist Law Roach—Zendaya has worn clothes that stand out in Day Two’s fashion retrospectives. She wore dreadlocks to the Oscars; a bright pink Tom Ford breastplate at the 2023 Critics’ Choice Awards; Met Gala transformed into Joan of Arc. “I just love clothes and playing with them and creating new characters,” Zendaya says of her red-carpet style. “That’s where I find the joy of fashion, its transformative quality, its ability to tell a story.”

Now, kaleidoscopic fashionistas are gravitating toward Paris fashion. Zendaya shoots a new campaign for Louis Vuitton’s Capucines bag, shot by the iconic Mert and Marcus. The airy, sun-drenched visuals, filmed in the French Riviera region, felt like a full circle moment for Zendaya. “I remember growing up with LV campaigns,” she shares. “Naomi Campbell I loved this in the early 26 days, she was like lying on a tree trunk. I can still see it. I can see this in my head , I still remember seeing it in a magazine when I was a child.”

The 26 year-old also recalled being in The LV monogram-inspired designs were often seen on MySpace during the platform’s heyday. “Everyone has LV on their Myspace page,” she laughs. “At least I have that! Let me stop trying to put it on someone else. That’s definitely me.”
