ZendayaWhat’s better than one fave? Two faves, obviously. That’s exactly what the upcoming issue of CR Fashion Book is serving up. In its pages, Zendaya and Cardi B interview each other about a whole slew of important topics. The two dynamos sat down to talk about their careers, role models, dating lives, and more — and some stunning pictures, shot by Petra Collins and Mario Sorrenti, were paired with the interviews. Though the issue won’t be available in print until March 1, the gorgeous photo shoots and accompanying interviews are already online and ready to read.

For the shoot, Zendaya was completely transformed with makeup, wigs, and clothing. She shared some of the photos on Twitter with the caption, “The art of transformation.” The makeup, by Isamaya Ffrench, was the star of the shoot (aside from Zendaya, of course), and each look was captured perfectly by Sorrenti. She’s completely unrecognizable in some of the looks, and she channels all of the new characters she’s transformed into perfectly during the shoot.

Though the images are gorgeous, the interview itself can’t be missed, either. When Cardi B asked Zendaya about her inspiration, she answered, “Of course my parents and people like Michelle Obama, who I think is amazing. It’s the women in my life — my mom, my older sister, my grandmothers, and my little nieces, even they inspire me. Seeing them look up to me inspires me to be better. I’m with my sister every day, but I don’t think she even knows how much she inspires me.”

Just WOW! Thank you @crfashionbook!! Styled by @carineroitfeld #CR12

The images of Cardi B (shot by Petra Collins) are dreamy and ethereal, as is Collins’ style. She has a smoky eye and a light pink lip — almost bubblegum pink — courtesy of makeup artist Erika La’ Pearl. In the interview with Zendaya, she describes herself as, “Honest. Energetic. I’m also kind of a loner. I like to be in silence, think, and make myself laugh.” It’s this answer that makes it obvious why she has so many devoted fans — she’s complex and multifaceted, and she knows exactly who she is.
