FROM A DISNEY STAR TO JOAN OF ARC – ZENDAYA’s BEST LOOKS THROUGHOUT THE YEARS

Hey guys! I hope you’re all having a fantastic day/night.
.
I have previously posted articles on my blog about my favorite Ariana Grande and Hailee Steinfeld looks which both received loads of positive feedback. So I decided to continue this trend and share with you all my favorite of Zendaya’s recent looks. Specifically, because her style has changed and evolved so much over the years, this post is unique in that I will compare her fashion sense over different years. I had so much fun choosing the looks for this post and even enjoyed editing all the pictures!
.
In case you are currently living under a rock and don’t know who she is, here is a little bit of background information about Zendaya: She is a 21-year-old dancer, singer, and actress who is most famously known for her roles in ‘The Greatest Showman’ and ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’. I’ve pretty much been a fan of hers ever since she starred in the Disney show ‘Shake It Up’ at the age of thirteen. Anyways ever since her recent delve into movies and musicals, she has stunned me time and time again with her effortless and remarkably cool style! It’s pretty much out of this world if you ask me!
.
If you’ve been following ZimmyLifestyle for a while then you would definitely already know about this admiration – as whenever I post my favorite looks from practically any event, she always makes the cut. I mean even if Zendaya did so much as show up, she’d make my list. So, now to the post itself – I’ve selected my 22 favorite outfits that she has worn over the years! From her casual daytime-lunch-date looks to her Oscar gowns, here are the twenty-two that I selected, ranging from 2015 to 2018. Enjoy!

1.“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” Premiere in Los Angeles – 2015
Micheal Kors Collection
First up on my list is the outfit Zendaya wore to the “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” premiere in Los Angeles back in 2015. For this event, Zendaya wore a Micheal Kors transparent short rhinestone embellished skirt with a long grey turtleneck. Her earrings looked amazing and her makeup was flawless as usual. I love how classy yet cheeky this look is and how Zendaya’s hair is perfectly parted in the middle. The silver heels are also fantastic! Hats off to Michael Kors!

2.Clara Lionel Foundation 2nd Annual Diamond Ball – 2015
Two-Piece by Rosie Assoulin
Next up is this super chill yet amazing bohemian two-piece which Zendaya wore to a charity foundation ball! The overall look is evidently gorgeous and beautifully shows off her figure. To make the look more red-carpet-like she added a lot of jewelry to the otherwise simple white jumpsuit, and added a dark smokey-eye for a final touch! I love her low bun and center parting, super classy as usual!

Moschino top and pants a Hearts on Fire Lorelei Interlocking Ring and the Atmore Pumps from her line Daya by Zendaya
Moving onto 2016, next up is a stunning and summery look that Zendaya wore at the Kid’s Choice Sports Awards! Even though I’m not a huge fan of the leather pants she’s wearing, I adore her yellow-bow-blouse top! This Moschino golden knot top looks incredible and wraps up Zendaya like a present! I love that she kept the overall look simple with black shoes as it really brings the attention of any viewer to the main piece of the outfit: the top. Her natural makeup and skin look glowing and I love the sassy poses and a messy bun so much!

4.HeartRadio Music Awards in Inglewood, California – 2016
Two-piece red velvet suit by Haider Ackerman pointed-toe black boots and hair styled in a sleek bob
As soon as I saw this look I knew that it would have to make my list. Zendaya’s two-piece velvet suit for the HeartRadio Music Awards just looks absolutely incredible! There isn’t a single thing I would change in this outfit, as she effortlessly looks like an actual rock star. I love the fringed bob and the red color of the outfit, plus her killer abs and pointed-toe booties! The earrings are also super cute and her makeup is just, well, flawless.

5.“Confirmation” Premiere in Hollywood. 2016
Corset top and matching skirt by Rani Zakhem and Casadei pumps
Next up is an outfit which I honestly adore! Zendaya’s colorful crop-top which matches her floor-length skirt perfectly, demonstrate both her style and insane figure. She (or her stylist) decided to keep the shoes simple and dainty with pastel purple stilettos. With that, she wore a gorgeous diamond bracelet and let her hair loosely sit behind her soldiers.

6.Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards in California – 2016
Dress by Russian designer Ulyanna Sergeenko and embellished Charlotte Olympia platform sandals 
Moving on, I’m completely obsessed with this look. All the details on this dress are gorgeous and her thick lace choker perfectly adds the last touch to the outfit. I love the short bob and natural makeup which, altogether, make a masterpiece. Very classy, slightly dated, and oozing sophistication, this is probably Zendaya’s most conservative look yet! The 1920s where are you?

7.Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter Fashion Show in Paris- 2016
All Louis Vuitton
Zendaya looked stunning upon her arrival at the Fall/Winter Louis Vuitton Fashion Show in 2016, wearing obviously all Louis Vuitton. I really like the leather midi skirt and the red sleeves of her vintage top. The lace-up shoes also heavily ooze the 1950s and girl power! She wore this sweet outfit with her natural long curly hair swept to the side and a subtle nude lipstick. Overall, she looks insane, again.

8.Pre-Oscar Dinner in Los Angeles – 2016
Marchesa dress
The famous actress looked like a white swan-princess at the Oscars pre-dinner event. I love the use of layering in the fabrication of this dress, making it both original and princess-like. Through this outfit, Zendaya separates herself from those wearing typical gowns and instead outlines her originality. Her diamond earrings and necklace make for the perfect final touch of this outfit and I simply love it! Her pink-purple smokey eyes and low ponytail make the outfit appear even more dainty and delicate. The blush-cream color also emphasizes the innocence of the swan which she is portraying! Can you tell I’m in love?

9.Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas, Nevada – 2016
Custom Calvin Klein outfit
Up next with more blush tones is this insane two-piece custom Calvin Klein outfit. I think it honestly has to be one of my favorite looks as it outlines her abs in the most discrete way and just shows her off. She doesn’t look flashy nor like she’s trying too hard… Instead, she just looks beautiful and very happy in her skin. The long skirt is stunning and the tiny, bralette-like top is super cute! Plus her hair looks gorgeously sleek!

10.Essence 9th Annual Black Women in Hollywood event in Beverly Hills – 2016
Thakoon silk dotted robe 
Moving on, next in my list is an outfit that Zendaya wore to the 9th Annual Black Women in Hollywood event. In support of her race, she paired a dotted red silk jumpsuit with its matching robe. She kept things simple with only portraying two colors but still looked incredible and I would have done anything differently. The middle parting in her hair is again, great and her white heels look very crisp and clean!

11.73rd Annual Golden Globes – 2016
Marchesa gown
Zendaya looked radiant in her all-burgundy look for the 73rd Annual Golden Globes. She paired the triple-layered gown with a black clutch and chandelier earrings. I love the low-V-cut of the dress and her huge ring. Zendaya completed this look with a middle-hair-parting and wavy locks. I think the burgundy color really suits her and the almost nude-lip dilutes its intensity.

12.Hollywood Today – 2016
Saloni rainbow top and midi skirt
More colorful than the rest and probably even beating n5, this outfit is definitely my favorite of her daytime looks! She wore this rainbow-like two-piece to an interview with Hollywood Today and looked amazing! The ensemble of many colors, paired with the top’s high neckline makes Zendaya look remarkable. I love her high-ponytail and how the black belt outlines her waist. The black stilettos also make for a great accent.

13.“ Ralph & Russo” Haute Couture Fall/Winter Fashion Show – 2017
Ralph & Russo dress with Chopard earrings
Now onto 2017, this outfit centers around a Ralph & Russo white dress. Paired with sleek, pulled-back hair, white stilettos, and glittering Chopard earrings, Zendaya looked incredible. Although the all-white outfit is simple color-wise, its shape, form, and style are not. I love the high-neckline, bare shoulders and long skirt. Overall, Zendaya looked remarkably classy and smart – I love it!

14.MTV Movie and TV Awards in Los Angeles – 2017
Light green floral print Zuhair Murad Couture dress
On to a more mature look, Zendaya looks dazzling in this incredibly detailed Zuhair Murad dress. I love the transparency of it that draws in some more contemporary vibes and the low neckline which, well, shows off her figure very well. The floral print of the sheer dress is also very summery and bright, complementing the light green color perfectly! Finally, the metallic platform sandals are great and her side-parted bob is just really pretty, shaping her face immaculately!

15.“The Greatest Showman” Premiere in New York City – 2017
Viktor & Rolf dress and jewelry from Tiffany & Co
This ball gown by Viktor & Rolf is elegant and chic. I love the sleek fringed-bob and the contrast between the red and black colors of the dress. The use of fabric is also heavily outlined and the strapless neckline is stunning. This whole look fits Zendaya perfectly and really suited the circus-red vibe of ‘The Greatest Showman’ movie.

16.“The Greatest Showman” Premiere in Sydney – 2017
Wearing Moschino and Christian Louboutin heels
Onto another one of Zendaya’s premiere looks for ‘The Greatest Showman’ movie, here is her famous butterfly look. I mean, to be perfectly honest, who else could pull off an outfit like this? Personally, I think she’s the only one that can. Her hair looks beautiful and classy and the colors and detail in the dress ooze exoticness and perfection. I’m utterly in love with this look and she looks flawless. I like that she kept her shoes really simple to again draw all the attention to the beautiful main piece: the dress.

17.“Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon” in New York City – 2017
Sies Marjan dress and Christian Louboutin silver sparkling heels
Zendaya looked super cute in a simple Sies Marjan dress while appearing on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon! I love the use of layering in the dress, offering it an almost bohemian vibe! The mint-blue color of it is also very pretty and complements Zendaya’s skin tone perfectly! Her hair also looks amazingly healthy and long! Zendaya rocked this outfit and kept it classy with sparkly silver Louboutin heels.

18,“Spider-Man: Homecoming” Premiere in Madrid – 2017
Jonathan Simkhai ruffled blue dress and Manolo Blahnik x Rihanna blue sequin denim pumps
I absolutely love this simple sky-blue crepe dress! Zendaya posed effortlessly at the Spider-Man premiere in Spain last year, sporting a ruffled masterpiece and wavy-beach locks! Her big gold loop earrings are also beautiful and I love how her heels match the dress perfectly. This look is overall just stunning and simple in the best way possible!

19.Out for lunch – 2017
Moving on, this is such a cute day-time (which could even be worn at night-time) outfit! Zendaya wore this mini metallic silver skirt with a classic button-down white shirt and braided hair to a lunch date sometime in 2017. She looked gorgeous and proved that one doesn’t have to look boring in the summer to stay cool. Again, I adore the silver vibe which is beautifully complemented by the stilettos of the same color!

20.Met Gala – 2017
Dolce & Gabbana parrot print
To prove once and for all that Zendaya can rock absolutely ANY hairstyle, here is my 20th look in today’s post: her 2017 Met Gala look. Working with Dolce & Gabbana, Zendaya looked out of this world on the red/white carpet. Her tropical, off-the-shoulders, colorful gown looks amazing and her natural, afro-like hair is insane! I love that she wore red lipstick to make them look even bolder and well, I’m obsessed with the length of the dress! Plus parrots are adorable and deserve to be showcased on such a masterpiece!

21.Oscars in Los Angeles – 2018
Giambattista Valli Couture, Art Deco Diamond Jewellery and Griffe Ring and Brian Atwood Karin Platform Sandals
Onto my favorite looks from 2018, here is what Zendaya wore to the Oscars this year: a brown, deluxe Giambattista Valli Couture gown! I love the chocolate brown color of the flowy off-the-shoulder dress which in my opinion, complements her skin tone amazingly! I’m also in love with the Bulgari jewelry as, like the tight immaculate top bun, ties smoothly into the look. Perfect? I think yes

22.Met Gala – 2018
Versace (Joan of Arc)
And last but certainly not t least, n’22 brings me to my absolute favorite outfit, outshining all the rest and serving to successfully demonstrate Zendaya’s style evolution: her interpretation of Joan of Arc at this year’s Met Gala! Working seamlessly with Versace to follow the theme and stun the world, I love everything about this entire look.
.
That brings me to the end of this post – wow! Twenty-two is much bigger in practice than on paper! I hope you enjoyed it! My favorite outfits have to be n’16 and ’22 – what are yours? My friends love n’11 but I’m also super into n3… What do you think? Leave me a comment below to let me know! Are there any outfits listed above which you despise? Any that blow your mind?

LOVE – as always,
