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.”
