Before she was an Emmy-winning actor, Zendaya was (and still is) a red carpet icon. With the help of her longtime stylist, Law Roach, Zendaya has been delivering show-stopping looks since she was a Disney kid.
Zendaya and Roach’s approach to fashion has always been forward-thinking. From highlighting Black designers and sourcing looks from little-known brands, the pair have managed to claw their way to the top of best-dressed lists from here to Vogue.
“[Outside of editorials] she’s never worn Gucci, she’s never worn Chanel. She’s never worn Dior. She’s never worn Saint Laurent,” Roach told The Hollywood Reporter. “And she had never worn Valentino until she became the face of Valentino. So, it’s quite incredible that we can build that just using smaller and emergent brands and designers. I think it’s really beautiful.”
Zendaya’s sense of personal style doesn’t stop on the red carpet, either. Whether she’s walking to set or running errands, the actor turns heads in some of her fashion staples, including tailored outerwear, hoodies, and statement blouses.
