Zendaya Shares Her Top 3 Red Carpet Moments And Where She Sees Herself In 10 Years


Over the last few years, Zendaya has become red carpet royalty. The actress has joined a coveted list of celebrities who people look forward to seeing on the red carpet due to her remarkable style. With the help of her stylist Law Roach, the Emmy award-winner always reinvents herself with her looks and often makes award shows' red carpet best-dressed lists. During an interview with Vogue India, Zendaya reflected on her best red carpet moments and shared her favorites.

“It’s like picking your kids,” she said when asked about her favorite looks. “Picking your favorite kid, how are you supposed to do that? You can’t.”

“Some of my tops–Tom Ford breastplate were my favorites, Joan of Arc was fun, our yellow Valentino moment at the Oscars. Everybody actually thought that Law came with a leaf blower,” she said. “It was just actual wind that for some reason was only there when I got there. Which made it very difficult to get the shot but we worked it out.”

In January 2020, Zendaya wore the pink Tom Ford breastplate and a long, flowy skirt to the Critics Choice Awards.

Her Joan of Arc look took place at the 2018 Met Gala where the theme was “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.” She wore a custom Versace gown that featured armor on the neck and shoulder.

Last but not least, her yellow Valentino gown was a moment at the 2021 Oscars. Her hair was long and wavy and parted down the middle. And like she mentioned, she brought the wind with her.

Throughout the video, she tackled other questions such as what superpower she wished she had and the best decision she ever made in her life. She then answered a fan who asked her where she saw herself in 10 years. “In 10 years, hopefully, happy,” she said. “My aim is to be doing things that make me happy and bring me joy so right now that’s what I get to do currently which is like to act. And that brings me a lot of joy.”

“If there was ever a time that it didn’t bring me that satisfaction, I would be glad to switch to something else and whatever that is I don’t know,” she continued. “Hopefully directing but who actually knows.”

This isn’t the first time Zendaya has mentioned wanting to get into directing. In her 2021 British Vogue cover story, the Euphoria actress shared that she has been thinking about getting behind the camera.

“If I ever do become a filmmaker, I know that the leads of my films will always be Black women,” she said. “I gotta hurry up and figure out how to f–king become a director, man. I’m trying, I’m learning every day, I really am. There’s so much I want to do.”

What 14 People Say 'Great Sex' Means To Them

What is the difference between bad, average, and great sex? If I ask thirty people this question, I would get thirty different answers. As someone who's had their fair share of both good and not-so-good sex, I understand that there is no one size fits all answer to this question. "Great sex" can mean different things to different people. Case in point, I once had an amazing sexual experience with a guy that a mutual “friend” had a horrible experience with. Great sex is subjective AF! According to the mutual friend his sex was subpar at best. One person’s trash is another one’s treasure. Great sex boils down to what is good for you and your partner at the moment. No two people are the same so no two sexual experiences will be the same either.

5 Times Megan Thee Stallion & Pardison Fontaine Showed Their Love On The 'Gram

Another day, another photo of Megan Thee Stallion that went viral. But this time she had a little help from her boyfriend Pardison “Pardi” Fontaine. The “Pressurelicious” artist’s fans were in for a surprise a few days ago after Megan posted a photo of herself lying on the floor with her legs up and wrapped around Pardi’s waist. Pardi appeared to be focused on playing his video game while Meg’s derriere was tooted in the air but he managed to wrap his arms around it as he held the controller.

The Mamie 'Till' Movie Wants To Empower Us

Sitting in the theater getting ready to watch Nopefor the third time, I was excited, like a good film nerd, to see my friend's first-time reactions to the fun UFO horror-comedy. My heart sank immediately when a trailer for the film Till, which follows the life and legacy of Emmett Till's mother, Mamie, started playing first.

My knee-jerk reaction, of course, comes from years of watching film and TV that have exploited Black trauma onscreen and were created with little (if any) consideration for what could emotionally trigger the Black audience. The 1955 murder of Emmett Till is so heartbreaking and inherently violent; would this film make us live through that violence on screen?

Fortunately, no!

This week, before watching Gina Prince-Bythewood's incredible The Woman King, a featurette for Till played in place of a trailer and it soothed my fears.

"There will be no physical violence against Black people on screen," the film's award-winning director and co-writer Chinonye Chukwu says in the featurette. "I'm not interested in relishing in that kind of physical trauma. We're going to begin and end in a place of joy," she says.

Starring Danielle Deadwyler (whose heartfelt performance on HBO's Station Eleven stole the show) as Mamie, Till is a celebration of Mamie's tireless activism which sparked the civil rights movement that continues today and ultimately culminated in President Biden signing the Emmett Till Anti-Lynching Act into law just a few months ago in March 2022. "Mamie Till Mobley is a hero," says Alana Mayo, president of Orion Pictures, the production company behind the film. "I'm really, really committed to making movies not just by us, but for us," Mayo says in the featurette.

After a private screening of Till, this week, Trayvon Martin's mother, Sybrina Fulton, tweeted that the film was "#Powerful" and "a must see."

Mamie's story of courage in the face of unspeakable tragedy deserves to be told--especially as we continue the fight for civil rights today. Knowing that the Black filmmakers behind the film are centering Black joy and aiming for our empowerment through the film makes a world of difference.

TILLis in theaters October 14.
