In May 2013, the then 16-year-old Shake It Up star Zendaya Coleman had a mostly Disney fan base, but her fabulous red carpet shoe choices made us sit up and take notice.

The teen star extended her fan base after placing second to Kellie Pickler on the sixteenth season of Dancing with the Stars.

She became famous for portraying Rocky Blue on the Disney Channel sitcom Shake It Up. Her good friend Bella Thorne starred as CeCe Jones.

With her relaxed cool-girl style, Zendaya was easily catching the attention of the paparazzi.

Take, for example, this yellow-and-purple outfit she was seen in as she exited her Manhattan hotel. We love the mix of bright colors.

How do you feel about her marigold belted Prada swing dress and massive top knot?

Earlier the same day, Zendaya tweeted this edited picture of her wearing a less brightly colored but just as cute outfit:

Credit goes to Zendaya’s stylist, Law Roach, for these fierce New York looks. Of course, some credit also goes to Zendaya for actually running around NYC in the sky-high heels her stylist picked for her!

Available at Farfetch, the gold-zipped purple booties are these heels from the shoe-lust-inducing Giuseppe Zanotti Fall 2013 collection that we’ve also spotted on Nicki Minaj.
