Though Zendaya has a lot on her metaphorical plate — from her acting and singing career to her multiple endorsement deals, lifestyle app and clothing line — what she really wants to be known for is "active change" rather than "what my name stands for." The actress opened up to Ruthie Friedlander about her activism and her sense of responsibility as a public figure and role model for the cover story of the January issue of InStyle, for which she was photographed by Anthony Maule. She also opens up about the decision to make her Daya by Zendaya line unisex, noting, “I just felt that if I’m going to do a clothing line, that’s the only way I see it being done. That’s the future of fashion."
