The wins keep rolling in for Euphoria star Zendaya. After becoming the youngest recipient of an Emmy award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series last year, the 25-year-old star is now gracing the 2021 October issue of British Vogue magazine.
Zendaya who is set to appear in the forthcoming sci-fi film Dune, took to Instagram to share the breathtaking cover with fans. “I’ve had quite a surreal week, and this moment is the most beautiful addition. Incredibly grateful to be on the cover of @britishvogue October issue,” she wrote.
The former Disney star stuns in a Black plunging neckline dress paired with a smoky eye and a decorative bow front and center.
In another photo from the shoot, the former Dancing with the Stars contestant dazzles in a custom-made Valentino asymmetric-shoulder silk-gazar minidress and Bulgari jewelry.
Zendaya gave a shoutout to her longtime friend and stylist Law Roach who slayed the young starlet from head to toe for the cover shoot and who has been responsible for a number of her head-turning red-carpet looks throughout the years. Law spoke to Vogue about his inspiration behind the iconic cover.
“Zendaya is a woman now; I wanted to express that in the Vogue editorial, so that people see her in a way they have never seen her before,” he shared.
“It wasn’t about age; she took her time, she’s always been very respectful of where she came from – meaning Disney – and the people who grew up with her. It’s subtle and it’s beautiful; it’s sophisticated and sexy,” Law added. “We did everything in black and that alone is quite incredible.”
The self-professed “image architect” has been sharing a number of his high-end couture fits for the star on Instagram, like this video below where Zendaya struts for the camera in a David Koma dress.
