Zendaya wears two vintage looks to the 2023 NAACP Awards
Zendaya made her first red-carpet appearance of 2023 last night, attending the 54th NAACP Image Awards in California. And naturally, she didn't disappoint when it came to her style choices.
The Euphoria star has been working with her stylist and 'image architect' Law Roach on reworking vintage finds for several years now, often preferring to delve into fashion house archives and discover hidden treasures rather than wearing current season or brand-new couture. For last night's event, the singer-actress wore two equally striking vintage looks.
She first took to the red carpet in a Versace couture gown from the spring/summer 2002 collection. The strapless black gown featured a cut-away bodice, exaggerated hips and a structured skirt, with flashes of lime green throughout.
During the evening, she then changed into a second outfit, in which she took to the stage to present one of the night's awards. Her second ensemble was a reworked version of a Prada spring/summer 1993 look, consisting of a star-accented bralet and matching white skirt with a cut-out waistband. The original look presented on the runway featured trousers, but Zendaya swapped them for a floor-length skirt. She added co-ordinating white pointed pumps.
The actress took to Instagram to share some behind-the-scenes pictures and video from the evening, thanking the designer Miuccia Prada for her help in recreating the latter look. She accessorised both outfits with some glittering Bulgari jewellery.
When it came to glam, Zendaya wore her chocolate-brown bob in soft side-swept waves, with plenty of volume. Her neutral make-up also seemed to be inspired by the '90s and '00s, with a bronzed smoky eye and a nude, heavily lined matte lip.
The 26-year-old was nominated for two awards on the night, for Entertainer of the Year and Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series for her work in Euphoria (both of which ended up going to Angela Bassett). The annual NAACP Image Awards recognises people of colour across arts, entertainment and culture.
