“You started making things interesting when you did that David Bowie look [at the 2016 Grammys],” InStyle’s Laura Brown said in her interview with Zendaya.

“I know. I got dragged for my mullet at the time, but kids love mullets now. I’m happy about my David Bowie mullet,” Tom Holland’s girlfriend responded.

For the premiere of the 2021 American epic science fiction film Dune, Zendaya wore a white sequined asymmetrical column gown by Paris-based American fashion designer Rick Owens.

“My part is very, very small in this movie and that’s why I’m so excited to see it, to see what everyone’s been up to,” she told Empire about her role in the movie as a young Fremen woman named Chani.

“[Director Denis Villeneuve and I] had a little discussion about who Chani is and the strength she possesses. She’s a fighter, that’s what her people are. I only really had a few days with her, so I kind of scratched the surface but it was so much fun figuring her out. What does she walk like, what does she talk like? This is her planet, so how does she navigate this world? It was so fun.”

In November 2013, Zendaya Coleman was one of the youngest celebrities who attended Alicia Keys‘ 2013 Keep a Child Alive (KCA) Black Ball held at Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City.

Do you like Zendaya’s red-on-red look, or do you think she would have been more elegant if she had chosen a classic pair of heels?

Zendaya got her suede “Harmony” boots from the Tabitha Simmons Fall 2013 collection.

They feature scalloped cuffs, pointed toes, and perforations along the slanted shafts for added style. Although they seem to have a wide-leg opening, buckled straps at the back are also available.
