Zendaya Goes Braless in a Plunging Sequin Set in Paris
While tons of celebrities have been coined as "fashion icons," one sartorial trailblazer will forever be set apart from the rest — Zendaya. Although she's only 26, the actress has produced many groundbreaking style moments for over a decade. From walking Hollywood's biggest red carpets to strutting her stuff at Paris Fashion Week, the "Euphoria" star always seems to command any room she enters in the most showstopping looks, thanks to stylist and Image Architect Law Roach.
From her Disney channel days to her big Emmy win, Roach and Zendaya's 12-year partnership has consistently proved that there really are no rules when it comes to fashion. The two met by chance when the star needed styling for a Hollywood premiere, and they have been inseparable ever since. "When she was 14, she didn't know much about fashion, and I think I had a little bit more say-so in the look. But now she's a grown woman," Roach told Women's Wear Daily in 2021.
Throughout the years, Roach walked Zendaya through many style phases, from baby-doll dresses and booties to her infatuation with '90s hip-hop, as shown by a Rubin Singer bandeau top and maxi skirt completed with a basketball cap in 2014. The actress has since graduated to donning archival haute couture consistently. Perhaps your mind goes to when she broke the internet in a purple and lime cutout dress from Versace's Spring/Summer 2003 collection, paying homage to singer Beyoncé. Even more recently, Zendaya appeared at the NAACP Image Awards in two vintage Versace and Prada looks, further cementing her title as red carpet queen.
While Roach is switching gears from styling to modeling, he announced via Twitter that he's continuing his partnership with Zendaya, which means more iconic looks are on the way. In the meantime, keep scrolling for some of the dynamic duo's most jaw-dropping style moments that'll forever go down in fashion history.
