At the end of the day, fashion is all about having a good time, and no one knows this better than Zendaya. She arrived at The Daily Front Row’s Fashion Media Awards in 2019 in head-to-toe Tommy Hilfiger, wearing a perfectly tailored maroon velvet suit and a matching velvet newsboy cap.
Under the suit, she wore a maroon blouse with large white polka dots contrasted with a white silk neck scarf that had the same colors, just inverted. What resulted was a look that was both playful and polished, a line Zendaya plays with frequently, cementing her as a fashion icon who truly loves the craft.
You're My Butterfly
Zendaya truly spread her wings at the 2017 premiere of "The Greatest Showman," where she graced the red carpet in a mesmerizing Moschino gown that resembled a monarch butterfly. The dress was a true work of art, with its wing-like panels draping elegantly around her body and flowing down to the floor.
This was a fitting choice for Zendaya, who has undergone a beautiful transformation over the years and emerged as a stunning, confident, and powerful woman. Like a butterfly emerging from a cocoon, she has blossomed into a true fashion icon, inspiring us all with her grace, strength, and beauty.
Sequins at the Sequel
We know Zendaya loves dressing up with a theme, and she did just that in a color-blocked Armani Prive dress at the "Spiderman: Far From Home" premiere in LA in 2019. The gown featured a minimalistic red bodice with barely there straps and a long black skirt, both of which were completely covered in sequins.
With the color choice as an obvious nod to Spiderman, Zendaya paid homage to the superhero franchise they were there to celebrate. She completed the look with stick-straight hair that added to the overall sleekness of the ensemble. She once again proved her impeccable sense of style, showing that simplicity can be just as impactful as extravagance.
Zendaya, the White Wizard
Zendaya turned heads at the Ralph and Russo event during Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week in 2017. The actress and fashion icon wore a stunning white gown by the designers, featuring intricate beading and an elegant cape that flowed into a dramatic train.
The gown, expertly tailored to Zendaya's figure, felt both wonderfully modern and glamorously vintage with its straight, Audrey Hepburn-inspired silhouette. The actress paired the gown with bold diamond earrings that perfectly matched the beading on the dress, creating a cohesive and eye-catching ensemble and proving once again that she is a force to be reckoned with on the red carpet.
Zendaya's fashion journey took her from the red carpet to the design room in 2019, where she collaborated with Tommy Hilfiger on her own collection, TOMMYXZENDAYA. She wore one of her own pieces to the collection's presentation, where she looked effortlessly chic in a striped long-sleeve knit dress with keyhole detail.
Her natural hair complemented the simplicity of the dress, and brown leather boots only added to the 70s prairie aesthetic of the collection itself. It's clear that Zendaya brought her true love for fashion, along with her creativity and inspiration, and put them to work, resulting in a wonderful debut in the design world.
