If you’ve been following Zendaya’s style picks recently, you may have noticed that she delved into fashion’s fascination with eras past. Some nostalgic references are more subtle that others– a short sweater here, a mod plaid there – but it definitely stood out.
“This year we’ve been playing with decades. I’ve recently been really in the ’60s vibe, hence the look,” she said. Charm of the Prada sequinned and feathered two-piece set she wore to our Women of the Year launch event, co-hosted by Barneys New York. “That’s what we’ve really been doing at the moment, and [we’re] surf this wave [for] as long as you feel like you like it. “
So we weren’t surprised when she followed that Prada look with a hot pink Viktor & Rolf jumpsuit at the awards show that felt very retro-glam the next day.
“I like to think that when it comes to fashion, my stylist [Law Roach] and I’m evolving and I’m always changing, “Zendaya said.” But the only thing that stays the same is we keep having fun and not taking it so damn seriously. Fashion is supposed to be a tool to discover yourself and find out more about yourself and that’s what I did. and have fun “when it comes to fashion.” A lot of times we look back on different trends, and we don’t realize that someone had to set those trends – someone had to change them, someone must have done something different, “she told us” I think it’s nice to see that now; it’s a melting pot of every decade: you see someone with a 90’s, 80s, 70s, all in one outfit.

Hollywood, the H&M x Erdem sweater and skirt combo from the collaboration’s runway, or even the Ralph & Russo dress from the Spider Man: Homecoming first.
