Vogue Names Zendaya Academy Awards’ Breakout Style Star

Vogue Names Zendaya Academy Awards’ Breakout Style Star

The actress wowed in her long locs and Vivienne Westwood gown.

Published February 25, 2015

While the public is currently hating on Fashion Police's Giuliana Rancic for her ignorant comments about Zendaya Coleman’s gorgeous faux locs at this past Sunday’s Academy Awards, others are taking a moment to recognize the 18-year-old Disney star’s fashion flair. Vogue recently named Zendaya as the Academy Awards’ Breakout Style Star and we couldn’t agree more. She looked absolute radiant in an off-white satin Vivienne Westwood with off-the-shoulder straps and accessorized with Chopard jewels.


“Oh, what a difference a serious red-carpet moment can make!” Vogue stated. “If you didn’t know who Zendaya was before tuning into the 87th Annual Academy Awards tonight, well, you will now: The lissome and lovely Disney actress and pop singer caused a stir on the red carpet in a figure-hugging ivory-toned Vivienne Westwood slip of a goddess gown, replete with flowing dreadlocks: one part Lisa Bonet, one part Venus de Milo, and all very grown up (which is to say, all very un-Disney). We’ll be keeping our eye on you, Zendaya.”
