NYLON Fit Picks: Zendaya’s Vintage Balmain, Rihanna’s Going-Out Dress, & More Celebrity Looks
A weekly roundup of our favorite celebrity outfits.
Welcome to NYLON's Fit Picks, a weekly roundup of our favorite celebrity outfits.
When it comes to the red carpet, we can always count on Zendaya to come through and last night was no exception. On Sunday, Feb. 27, right before the highly-anticipated and heart-wrenching season finale of Euphoria on HBO Max, the actress posted her latest look on Instagram for the 2022 NAACP Image Awards: a strapless green-and-red gown from Balmain. The new red carpet ‘fit was vintage, specifically from the brand’s 1956 collection, and handpicked by none other than Zendaya’s go-to stylist Law Roach. She completed her look with simple diamond jewelry pieces, including a pair of earrings from BVLGARI.
In a post made by Roach himself, he wrote, “And then THIS happened…. @zendaya in vintage @balmain for @naacpimageawards a thank you @olivier_rousteing for letting us into the archives ❤️💚🖤 Could there have been a more perfect dress???”
“ZENDAYA divine in Balmain gown from 1956 ♥️ l’élégance intemporelle de notre atelier 🖤Thank you for showing the beauty and the elegance of our house” added Rousteing, Balmain’s creative director, on Instagram.
This wasn’t the first (or the last) time we’ve seen the Euphoria star rocking vintage. During the show’s Season 2 photo opp back in January, Zendaya wore a vintage Valentino dress from its Spring 1992 collection, previously worn by supermodel Linda Evangelista. Just a month before, she was seen in a custom Valentino dress to the Spider-Man: No Way Home premiere, which was inspired by John Galliano’s Spring 1997 design. She also was spotted on the red carpet in November donning a black gown from Roberto Cavalli’s Fall 2000 collection for the film’s premiere, as well.
Ahead, check out the rest of our favorite celebrity looks from the past week, including Rihanna’s going-out dress from Gucci, Dominic Fike in Saint Laurent, and more.

Julia Fox is making her way up as a must-watch style star and it seems that leather is her signature. The Uncut Gems actress was seen in New York wearing a black mini dress paired with thigh-high boots and a long leather jacket. She also wore dangling gold earrings and a matching black handbag as a final touch.
Pregnancy has never looked as good as it does on Rihanna, and for Milan Fashion Week, the Fenty mogul (and her unborn child) made quite the appearance as she was seen in a see-through vintage Gucci monogram dress, which she styled with the brand’s beaded bag and Gianvito Rossi custom lace-up sandals. Rih then completed her going-out look with jewelry from Munnu the Gem Palace, Jacquie Aiche, Lang Antiques, and Orlov.
