"I think it started out with how she styles herself, because that was just looking at photos and thinking that she really does it. I mean she really carries herself well, she looks great in whatever she's wearing but she's got a sense of style I think she and Law Roach, her creative partner, have worked on for a long time.

"And I thought if I can get a little eye drop of that sense of style brought into my company, we'll be cool. And she gave me more than an eye drop, she turned on the faucet," says designer Tommy Hilfiger.

Zendaya says, "I don't take it with a grain of salt, I really appreciate that I'm able to be that in people's lives and be an inspiration. I really just try to be the best version of myself to hopefully inspire somebody else to be the best version of themselves."
