by Hafeezah Nazim

It's hard to believe that Zendaya Coleman is just 20 years old. It feels like only yesterday she was starting out, and appearing as Rocky Blue on Disney's Shake It Up. Then, seemingly overnight, her celebrity grew, and Zendaya blossomed into a beloved household name. Whether she's addressing issues like Black Lives Matter, killing it on the red carpet, or showcasing her ever-evolving versatility through her indisputable wig game, Zendaya is undoubtedly one of the biggest voices of expression in her generation. 

Here, we pay tribute to 15 of her best style moments thus far. We look forward to seeing what she wears next for many years to come. Happy Birthday, Zendaya!
