We're only two days in to 2021, but fans have already hailed trailblazing fashion icon Zendaya as the most stylish woman of the year after her latest stunning Instagram post.

The 24-year-old Emmy Award-winning actress shared two photos of herself looking chic and understated in a beautiful grey suit as she welcomed in the New Year, which accrued more than 2.5 million likes in less than an hour after it was posted.

The image currently has over 6 million likes, and has been admired by fans and fellow celebrities including Naomi Campbell and Marc Jacobs.

Fans then shared the pictures on Twitter, which took Zendaya's name to the top of the site's trending topics on New Year's day.

"Zendaya is already the most fashionable woman of 2021," one fan announced.

Another added: "Zendaya is a daydream."

It also prompted appreciation posts of the Euphoria star looking gorgeous in grey, and looking effortlessly cool in her trademark suits.

Meanwhile, Zendaya was recently named as the new face of Maison Valentino, joining creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli in realising his new vision for the fashion house.

"The reason why we chose Zendaya as the new face for Valentino is because she perfectly embodies and represents what Valentino is and stands for, today," Piccioli explained. "She is a powerful and fierce young woman that uses her talent and her work to express herself, her values and her generation as well."

"I am honoured to have been chosen as the face of Valentino," Zendaya said of the news. "I’m so excited to begin this amazing collaboration with Pierpaolo and the entire Valentino family."

Zendaya also won the 2020 Visionary Award at last year's Green Carpet Fashion Awards, which celebrates equality, inclusivity and sustainability in fashion.

"It's an incredible honour and means the world to me... Throughout my career I have had the privilege of being able to showcase other different types of beauties," she said of her award.

"Through the work that I get to do, creating more positions of power, more creative positions and I hope to continue to be able to do that, until this industry really does reflect the beauty that I see every day."
