Playing Zendaya Breaks Down Her 'Throwback' GRAMMY Style

Disney Channel starlet Zendaya owned the GRAMMY red carpet in a mullet and tuxedo on Monday, and she broke down how she accomplished her look with ET.

The 19-year-old singer and actress told ET that she wanted her look to feel reminiscent of David Bowie's iconic style, referring to the look as "kind of a throwback."

"This hair was actually kind of an out-of-the-blue type hair," Zendaya shared. "I wanted to do the short blonde, but I wanted to do something different, so I was like, 'Let's do a mullet!"

Zendaya, who was named the new face of CoverGirl cosmetics last month, also revealed she did her own GRAMMYs makeup.

"I know what I like the best, and I'm so picky," she explained. "I'm so overly obsessive about every little thing. I might as well do it myself instead of stress out."

Just before hitting the GRAMMY red carpet, Zendaya gave her fans an early preview of her look on Periscope, and at the show she gave ET the beauty breakdown. Her go-to for those major lashes is CoverGirl's Plumpify mascara and her soft, smoky eye is courtesy of CoverGirl's truNaked eyeshadow palette in Nudes. For lips, she made her own color by combining "three different lip colors in one." She used Colorlicious Oh Sugar! in caramel, Jumbo Gloss Balm Creams in caramel cream and Queen Collection Colorlicious Gloss in premiere pink.
