Zendaya’s Vintage Glamour for The NAACP Image Awards
The Euphoria star stunned in Valentino and vintage Balmain.
Zendaya made an appearance at the 53rd NAACP Image Awards on Saturday night where she was nominated for Outstanding Actress in a Motion Picture for her role as Marie in Netflix’s Malcolm and Marie. In true Zendaya fashion, the star dressed to impress and stunned in two outfits that screamed vintage glamour.
Zendaya’s first outfit was shared on Instagram by her stylist, Law Roach, which showed Zendaya elegantly strutting in a Motown inspired Valentino Haute Couture look. The silver mini dress was elaborately embellished with crystals and featured a square neckline and puffball silhouette. The dress was perfectly paired with a white wool duster coat that had matching crystal embellishments and tied in with Zendaya’s simple white heels that allowed the elaborate outfit to take centre stage. The look was perfectly styled with minimal jewellery that meant that the look, although not minimal in any way, was not overdone. The square neckline was not overshadowed as they decided to style the look without a necklace and Zendaya’s glamorous Hollywood blow-out was tucked behind one ear to reveal the perfect accessory choice of a large Bulgari jewel encrusted earrings.
Later that evening Law Roach also shared an image of a second look donned by the Euphoria star photographed by Dominic Miller. Z’s second look was a vintage gown from the Balmain archives dating back to 1956. The dress featured an emerald green, strapless bodice and full red skirt and perfectly encapsulated the vintage glamour look that Roach and Zendaya were striving for. The gown was once again allowed to have its main-character moment with minimalist styling, once again opting for a bare neck to perfectly compliment the strapless gown but this time Zendaya’s hair was slicked back behind the ears to accentuate the design of the neckline. This hairstyle also served to revel Z’s striking, but not too-statement, earrings that served to accessorise without overpowering the glamorous look. A similar affect was achieved through the simple and clean makeup donned by the star that was elevated with a striking but classic winged eyeliner, perfectly encapsulating the balance of simplicity and glamour that made this look.
