Zendaya is reaching major heights! 

Everyone's favorite fashion darling is breathtaking in the cover story for the latest issue of Garage magazine. In the editorial, the Euphoria actress stuns in a gigantic Louis Vuitton raffia dress, inspired by a sculpture, called Cupboard VIII, created by artist Simone Leigh, whose work celebrates black womanhood.

"I felt very moved by it, and excited to be a part of something that was a different art form from my own, learn a little bit, step back, and just kind of be a part of what she sees for her pieces. I’d never really done anything like that before," Zendaya told the mag about the collaboration. 

Zendaya looks fierce as she poses in the 12-foot raffia skirt with her gorgeous curls loose, accented with braids at the front.

A defining aspect of Simone Leigh’s voluminous sculptures, including the 12-foot raffia skirt we used for our cover shoot, is that they take up space in a way that is both literal and symbolic. Her sculptural depictions of black women have brought her to the top of the institutional art world, with three prominent exhibitions of her work currently on view in New York: a solo show at the Guggenheim, a spot in the Whitney Biennial, and a monumental commission on the High Line.

Leigh, who currently has exhibitions at the Guggenheim, Whitney Biennial and the High Line, shared a video of the star being lifted up to the sky-high skirt. 

Zendaya also channeled Leigh's bronze creation, Brick House, in a white ruffled Rodarte crop top and a coral-colored clay skirt that weighed 1,000 pounds. 

The actress continues to take the fashion world by storm. On Sunday, Zendaya debuted her second collection for Tommy Hilfiger at a '70s-inspired fashion show at the Apollo Theater in Harlem.
