Zendaya turned heads at the 2019 People’s Choice Awards in a beautiful black gown by Christopher Esber. The dress featured an asymmetric strap and midriff cutouts that were accentuated with bejeweled rope accents. It had a modern silhouette, with a full, voluminous skirt that tapered back in towards the ankle, creating an overall look that felt fresh and playful but still totally refined.
It was a refreshing take on a classic black dress, combining elegance and sophistication with a modern twist. Zendaya consistently proves that you don’t have to compromise on style to be both playful and elegant and that both of these things can exist in the same well-curated ensemble.
A Ruby in the Rough
Zendaya exuded beauty at the 2016 Golden Globes in a gorgeous ruby-red gown by Marchesa. The dress was made from a unique embroidered fabric and had a deep V-neckline that was incredibly elegant and super-flattering. The skirt featured three dramatic tiers, which added volume and movement to the look.
The starlet kept her hair in smooth, flowing waves, complementing the elegant dress beautifully while also keeping it the focus. She accessorized with a pair of dangly diamond earrings, which added glamour and sophistication to the overall ensemble. Overall, Zendaya's look at the 2016 Golden Globes was stylish, feminine, and sophisticated, showcasing her impeccable sense of fashion and red-carpet style.
Fuchsia for Days
At the 2020 Critics Choice Awards, Zendaya arrived in a fashion-history-defining Tom Ford look. The actress debuted a look from the legendary designer's most recent collection: a bright fuchsia metal top that was molded perfectly to her body and connected with harness-like straps.
It took the idea of a "naked" dress to a whole new level — before, the phrase referenced looks that were sheer, nude, or bedazzled, but this one was bold, graphic, and colorful. She paired it with a light fuchsia long skirt, adding depth to this visually stunning monochromatic look, and once again proved her mastery of the red carpet. She reminded us that fashion is more than just clothes: it's art, and it's a statement.
Sweaters belong on the red carpet too! Zendaya rocked a bold and refreshing look at the 2017 "Spider-Man: Homecoming" photocall in Barcelona, wearing a unique Delpozo sweater that featured two graphic, colorful flamingoes and a surprising mesh neckline. This may have been an unexpected choice for a red carpet, but Zendaya pulled it off effortlessly.
The actress paired the top with green wide-leg trousers, the same ones that Delpozo did when they sent the look down the runway in 2015! She finished the outfit with white heels that matched perfectly with the white shapes on the sweater. It was a bright look that proved Zendaya can bring something fresh and exciting to any red-carpet event.
Zendaya looked dazzling at the Madrid photocall for "Spiderman: Homecoming" in 2017 wearing a beautiful periwinkle dress by Jonathan Simkhai. The dress featured thin, barely there straps and an elegant ruffle detail along the neckline that perfectly complemented Zendaya's natural beauty.
She kept it simple with minimal jewelry, adding a delicate gold anklet for interest, and paired the dress with gorgeous navy shoes that made the periwinkle color pop even more. The starlet left her hair down and wavy, adding a touch of effortless cool to the overall look. Zendaya once again proved that she has an impeccable sense of fashion and can make any outfit into a knockout.
