Only days after news broke that Zendaya will be playing Aaliyah in an upcoming biopic, the Disney star was named the new face of Madonna’s Material Girl clothing line.

The fashion brand, which gets its name from one of Madonna’s iconic songs, seems to be a perfect fit for the 17-year-old.

“Material Girl embraces having fun with fashion and being confident in your own skin … and who does that better than Madonna?” Zendaya said in a press release (quotes via E!).

It seems the original Material Girl agrees, applauding Zendaya’s exuberant personality.

“Zendaya exudes a confident, free spirit. We love having her as the new face of Material Girl,” Madonna said in a press release (quotes via E!).

“I love how Zendaya makes her own style rules to fit her personality — that’s who Material Girl is all about, being yourself to the fullest,” added Madonna’s daughter Lourdes, who is also a brand collaborator.

If the Material Girl fall campaign pictures are any indication, it looks like Zendaya is a great match for the line! Check out the snaps here and video from the shoot above!
