Zendaya Coleman has often said that the late Aaliyah has been an inspiration to her. So the young singer must be beyond thrilled to be playing Aaliyah in an upcoming biopic for the Lifetime network.
The biopic, ‘Aaliyah: Princess of R&B’, is based on the best-selling book ‘Aaliyah: More Than a Woman’ and will tell the story of the ‘One in a Million’ singer’s life and death, from her debut on ‘Star Search’ to her rise to fame and, finally, her tragic passing at age 22.
Zendaya stopped by ‘106 & Park’, SiriusXM and ‘Good Morning America’ on Tuesday (June 17) to discuss the role and showcase her sartorial style.
SiriusXM: First up, she donned a Romeo Hunte dress shirt with an off-centre collar for a unique twist. Pairing the look with Romeo Hunte ‘Crosby’ drop-crutch trousers in a plaid print, she amped up this mannish approach. Slicked-back tresses and black Christian Louboutin ‘So Kate’ pumps completed this directional look.
‘106 & Park’: Opting for blush tones, the actress/singer wore an Alexia Ulibarri sweater dress styled with another pair of ‘So Kate’ Louboutin pumps and a stack of gold bracelets on both wrists.
Both looks are great without trying too hard. I love how there is always a twist; however, the Romeo Hunte is my favourite.
