She’s taking the entertainment world by storm, and Zendaya Coleman's latest interview with Flaunt magazine also comes with a high-fashion photo spread and a hypnotizing video clip.

The Disney starlet dons goodies from labels like J Brand, Louis Vuitton, Miu Miu, Fausto Puglisi and Dior while working under the direction of Tyler Kindred and photographer Frederic Auerbach.

In her interview with Flaunt, Zendaya offered some tips on teen dating- “I would say my number one piece of advice is to find something you’re passionate about and make that your priority. Being girls, we think about guys all the time and put them in front of us. Find something that you love so much you don’t have to be distracted. Love is a great thing, as long as you first focus on yourself.”

As for the songs on her new album, she explained, “Not many of them are too emotional. They’re not like heart-wrenching ballads. I wanted to keep it pretty light, but one of the songs I really like is ‘Heaven Lost an Angel.’ It has an old-school vibe. Originally the song was meant for a guy. I helped them rewrite it for a girl. It’s a big, long pick-up line. I think it’s cool that it’s reverse roles. It’s the girl trying to use all these corny pick-up lines on the guy.

And Zendaya says her mom and dad are the people she most looks up to- “Honestly role models will always be your parents. They are literally the role models. You learn from their mistakes, the things they teach you, right from wrong. I have a lot of older siblings too and it’s really nice that I have people that are a step between parents, the generation gap.”
