“Zendaya is a powerful and fierce young woman that uses her talent and work to express herself and her values.
Zendaya is a Valentino DiVa and face of the Maison, and I am proud that she has been named by TIME100 Most Influential People of 2022, because she perfectly embodies and represents what the brand and I stand for today.
She has the capacity to convey a contemporary romanticism turning a Valentino creation into something extraordinary.
She shares the identity values of a generation she speaks for, in her most spontaneous, personal and progressive way.
She is authentic, fragile and strong at the same time and she is without any doubt the most powerful voice of a generation.”
