 Red Carpet Looks

Zendaya is no stranger to bold red carpet looks. From movie premieres to the Met Gala, the fashionista has proven that she knows how to make a striking fashion statement. Just yesterday she sent the Twittersphere buzzing after strolling up at the Emmys in a Poison Ivy-inspired look. Zendaya is notorious for making statements on the red carpet with the help of designers such as Dolce and Gabbana, Moschino, and Fausto Puglisi.

Zendaya’s recent collaboration with Tommy Hilfiger generated a lot of buzz at this year’s New York Fashion Week. The 70s inspired collection debuted at the Apollo Theater in Harlem, NYC.

This collection consisted of vibrant designs in every print and pattern from snakeskin and leopard to checkered patterns and polka dots.

The Tommy x Zendaya collection celebrated all body types featuring plus-sized models and clothing with magnetic closures at the neck for those with disabilities. The diversity and inclusivity of this show made it a memorable NYFW moment.

With a unique style and incredible eye for design, Zendaya has paved her way to becoming an industry icon. From Vogue covers to Met Gala looks, to having her own collection with one of fashion’s most well-known designers, Zendaya is on the rise to becoming a global icon.

She’s already a fashion icon, but my prediction is that she’ll be a global fashion icon. She’s iconic in her own look and she changes like a chameleon, from event to event and place to place, and people are intrigued with that. They love seeing what she’s going to wear next.
