CLOSE UP: American pop star Zendaya stars in a two-minute clip directed by Rankin, the British photographer and editor in chief of Hunger magazine.
In it, the 19-year-old American pop singer and actress, who starred in the Disney Channel’s “Shake It Up” television series (and who has recently been named as one of Time magazine’s 30 most influential teenagers alongside Malia Obama and Jaden Smith), sports a selection of key looks from Vivienne Westwood’s Gold Label fall and couture collections.
In the film, she performs the song “Close Up,”one of the lead tracks from her upcoming album, due for release in early 2016.
Zendaya, who sat front row at the Vivienne Westwood spring 2016 show, fronts the cover of Hunger magazine’s most recent issue for fall-winter.
“We are having a staggered approach,” explained a spokeswoman for the magazine. The film is to go live on Hungertv.com today. Another video is set to go online on Nov. 17.
