Top 10 Zendaya Red Carpet Looks

Is there a style that this multi-talented star can’t rock? Welcome to MsMojo, and today we’ll be counting down our picks for the Top 10 Zendaya Red Carpet Looks.

For this list, we’ll be breaking down Zendaya’s hottest and best red carpet looks to date.

#10: GLAAD Media Awards

Zendaya rocked this navy blue number at the 27th annual GLAAD Media Awards. The awards show honors films, TV shows and other forms of entertainment that accurately represent the LGBT community. From the diamonds in her ears to the Jimmy Choo sandals on her feet Zendaya looked stunning from head to toe. The centerpiece of the outfit is undoubtedly the gem-encrusted top, which catches the lights of the camera flashes perfectly! While this is definitely one of the tamer outfits the actress has worn to an event, she still managed to make it look incredible!

#9: Academy Awards (2015)

At the 2015 Academy Awards, Zendaya took a page out of old Hollywood’s playbook and absolutely slayed the red carpet in this beautiful off-the-shoulder silk gown. Displaying the grace and poise of a seasoned vet despite still being in her late teens, Zendaya’s confident look turned more than a few heads on Hollywood’s biggest night. None other than fashion icon Vivienne Westwood designed the gown and Zendaya chose to accessorize with a set of pearl earrings and simple yet effective pink clutch. Zendaya’s dreadlocks perfectly juxtaposed with the formality of the gown giving her a unique, yet well-rounded look.

#8: MTV Video Music Awards (2018)

We absolutely love this outfit! The chocolate-colored dress comes complete with a rounded bottom that actually makes Zendaya look like a dollop of ice cream…but somehow, sweeter? Designed by August Getty, this dress is definitely one of the most unique looks Zendaya has ever rocked and she pulled it off like few of her peers could. The dress was complimented with a set of large, rounded earrings and a pair of matching high heels. We only have one question: how did she sit in that thing?

#7: Billboard Music Awards (2016)

Zendaya may have been at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards as a presenter, but her outfit screams, “give me all the awards!” The exposed-midriff look hasn’t been popular for some time now, but Zendaya appears to have brought it back from the dead, with a little help from this eye-catching peach colored getup. With her hair straight, her body tight and her eyes shooting daggers into the lenses of every camera pointed in her direction, Zendaya absolutely killed it on this event’s (admittedly) not-so-red carpet. Seriously, who do we have to pay to look this good?

#6: “The Greatest Showman” Premiere

In “The Greatest Showman,” Zendaya plays acrobat Anne Wheeler; and for the film’s world premiere in New York she was appropriately walking high above everyone else in this breathtaking gown! Designed by Viktor & Rolf, the gown appears to be a homage to the outfit worn by Hugh Jackman’s character in the film, the legendary P.T. Barnum. Be that as it may, Zendaya plays second fiddle to no one in this incredible outfit. The black and red-tiered design, combined with a sleek black bob, suits her perfectly. This was not the only time she shined at a “Greatest Showman” premiere…but more on that later.

#5: “Spider-Man: Homecoming” Premiere

Zendaya cut a striking figure at the Los Angeles premiere for the 2017 superhero flick “Spider-Man: Homecoming”. Designed by Ralph & Russo, this hot pink number must have had people craning their necks for a better look thanks to its high slit and flowing fabric. Zendaya looks absolutely ravishing. The gown is well suited to her features, and is complimented perfectly with a pair of matching high heels. Zendaya brings an air of effortless grace to every red carpet she walks, and this one is no exception.

#4: Met Gala (2015)

Held annually at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, the Met Gala fundraiser has become one of the fashion industries go-to events for showcasing bold new designs, with the help of famous celebrities. Zendaya made her first appearance in 2015 and hasn’t missed one since. Her first showing was an impressive one. Rocking Fausto Puglisi, the singer and actress shone, despite being surrounded by some of the biggest names in the entertainment and fashion industries. Like most of the outfits she chooses to wear, this one is wholly unique, and features brazen patterns, multiple bracelets and a tiara. Basically, it’s a Zendaya look.

#3: Met Gala (2018)

Remember what we said about Zendaya not missing a Met Gala since 2015? Well she showed up to the 2018 event dressed head to toe in a Joan of Arc inspired outfit that completely stole the show! The theme of that year’s gala was Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination. As such, Zendaya’s decision to wear a metallic armor-like dress straight out of 15th century France was perfectly in keeping with the gala’s imposed aesthetic. No stranger to switching up her hairstyle to suit an event, Zendaya chose to rock an apricot bob that, for some reason, just works! Seriously who else would have the guts to pull off an outfit like this?

#2: Australian Premiere of “The Greatest Showman”

To say that Zendaya was the center of attention at the Australian premiere of “The Greatest Showman” would be an understatement. Ensuring that she wouldn’t be upstaged by anyone, Zendaya rocked this epic butterfly dress by Moschino. The outfit is absolutely stunning and features three of Zendaya’s trademarks: a wild premise, a high slit and a hairstyle from a bygone era! Put it all together and you have one heck of a look! It takes courage to rock a dress like this one; something Zendaya obviously has in spades!

Before we unveil our top pick, here are some honorable mentions:

2016 Met Gala

GQ Men of the Year Awards 2018

2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards

#1: Met Gala (2017)

For our final entry, we return to the Met Gala. The 2017 iteration of the event saw guests interpreting Art of the In-Between by Rei Kawakubo and her fashion house Comme des Garçons. Zendaya’s gown was arguably the highlight of the event, an off the shoulder masterpiece of fashion design that was brought to life by Dolce & Gabbana and accentuated beautifully by Zendaya’s frizzed-out and dramatic hairstyle. The gown itself is adorned with bright colors and images of birds and flowers. It’s a truly a one of a kind outfit and Zendaya was the perfect person to introduce it to the world!
