Zendaya stole the spotlight in a hot pink breastplate and matching skirt by Tom Ford at the 2020 Critics’ Choice Awards on Sunday night.

The 23-year-old, who was nominated in the Best Actress in a Drama Series category for her role as Rue in the HBO drama Euphoria, stunned as she hit the red carpet wearing the $15,000 (£11,500) bespoke piece from the designer’s spring 2020 collection.

Zendaya complemented the unique creation with a floor-length fuchsia skirt, Mateo New York earrings, Djula rings, and satin pumps by Christian Louboutin. Her stylist, Law Roach, later pointed out that the breastplate was a homage to the vintage pieces by Issey Miyake and Yves Saint Laurent, and called the Spider-Man: Far From Home star a “Warrior Woman” in a post on Instagram.

The piece was also recently worn by Gwyneth Paltrow for the cover of the latest issue of U.S. Harper’s Bazaar magazine, and the Oscar winner took to social media to lavish praise on the young star.

“Thank God I can say I have something in common with Zendaya,” she commented on a picture of the actress wearing the breastplate.

Other famous faces who also rocked bright colours on the red carpet included Booksmart star Beanie Feldstein, who wore a two-tone pastel pink and red dress with open-toe velvet Jimmy Choo platform heels.

Kristen Bell made a bold statement with her neon green caped jumpsuit by Cong Tri, paired with matching heels, while Awkwafina wowed in a bright yellow Ellie Saab gown, which featured a flowing skirt and sleeves, and Stuart Weitzman platform shoes.

Renee Zellweger, who scooped the Best Actress prize at the ceremony for her role in Judy, bucked the colourful trend by wearing a black strapless Dior gown, and Best Actress in a Comedy Series winner Phoebe Waller-Bridge rocked a one-shouldered sheer dress also created by designers at the French fashion house.

Little Women star Florence Pugh was among those who embraced show-stopping glittering gowns for the annual ceremony, wearing a silver sequinned column-style dress by Prada, while Jennifer Lopez opted for an elegant cream cut-out gown with embellishment by Georges Hobeika.

Zendaya had her breasts moulded for the stunning Tom Ford creation she wore to the 2020 Critics’ Choice Awards.

The 23-year-old donned the $15,000 (£11,500) hot pink metallic breastplate from the designer’s spring 2020 collection for the ceremony on Sunday, and finished off the show-stopping look with a fuchsia skirt and her hair styled into waist-length braids.

The look caught the attention of her fans on social media, with one curious follower on Twitter quizzing the Euphoria star on how the bespoke piece was created.

“Did they mould that to your t**tles… asking for a friend,” the cheeky post read, with Zendaya quickly replying, “Yes. Lol.”

Her stylist, Law Roach, later pointed out the breastplate was a homage to the vintage pieces by Issey Miyake and Yves Saint Laurent, and shared a picture of his client rocking the red carpet.

“Warrior Woman… wearing @tomford,” Law captioned the snap, prompting his celebrity friends to heap praise on Zendaya’s look.

“Jesus Christ,” Ariana Grande commented. “Incredible Law.”

Tracee Ellis Ross simply left a series of fire emojis, while singer Jessie J, model Alton Mason, and RuPaul’s Drag Race judge Michelle Visage also showed their love for the unique outfit.

The Tom Ford piece was recently worn by Gwyneth Paltrow for the cover of the latest issue of U.S. Harper’s Bazaar magazine, and the Oscar winner took to social media to gush over her Spider-Man: Homecoming co-star too.

“Thank God I can say I have something in common with Zendaya,” she commented on a picture of the actress wearing the breastplate.

Celine Dion only wants to wear outfits which make her feel “strong”.

The Canadian superstar first began her transformation from popstar to chic fashionista back in 2016 after she hired stylist Law Roach to switch-up her wardrobe and stage outfits for her Las Vegas residency gigs.

Now, she’s rocking pieces from the likes of Vetements, Off-White, and Chanel, and accordingly, credits her bold fashion choices to her fearless approach to life.

“So, courage… it represents a whole new life for me, my album, the tour, the way to dress, the way to say you can’t please everyone,” Celine told Entertainment Tonight. “I dress for me; the way I feel. I want to feel that I feel great about myself, I feel strong about myself, I feel good about my decisions with the help of a lot of people, but it’s all about courage and I think everyone should feel like that.”

The My Heart Will Go On hitmaker is releasing a new album, aptly titled Courage, in November and is overjoyed to have control over her music.

“I think I was always courageous. I hope it doesn’t sound pretentious to say that, but I always stressed a lot. We always kind of like just do whatever they suggest to me – not that I was a robot or anything, not to sound kind of weird, like, ‘Do this, do that.’ But I feel like right now I’m more in charge than ever before and this is definitely a part of my life where the maturity kicks in,” the 51-year-old smiled.

Marc Jacobs has dished up a joyful yet nostalgic collection for spring/summer 2020.

The designer unveiled his latest line at the Park Avenue Armory as part of New York Fashion Week on Wednesday, with celebrity guests including Zendaya, Law Roach, Debi Mazar, Anwar Hadid, Dua Lipa, and Migos’ Offset and Quavo.

Regarding the inspiration behind the spectacle, Jacobs commented that he wanted to reflect on the past whilst also presenting an optimistic view of the future.

“This show is a celebration of life, joy, equality, individuality, optimism, happiness, indulgence, dreams and a future unwritten as we continue to learn from our past and the history of fashion,” he shared in the show notes, before going on to refer to major stars who passed away in the recent years who have influenced him. “From the genius of Karl (Lagerfeld), the cheerful and bright-eyed positivity of Doris Day, the incomparable timeless style of Lee Radziwill and the effortless coolness of Anita Pallenberg that endures a half-century later… As with closely guarded tradition, tonight is our reminder of the joy in dressing up, our unadulterated love of fashion and embracing grand gestures of unbridled expressions, reactions, ideas, and possibilities.”

After a diverse set of models flooded the venue while classic song Dream a Little Dream of Me played in the background, they then each took to the runway in the centre of the room, and the show opened with a yellow suit with matching hat, purple scarf, and lavender suede boots.

Jacobs proceeded to take fashionistas through a journey of fashion trends extending back through several decades, with highlights including a ’60s-inspired burnt orange dress with white floral appliques attached, ice-blue satin disco trousers, a green tweed suit paired with extravagant butterfly-shaped glasses, gold lame gowns, star-studded suede coats, floral print peasant-style dresses, and 1940s-influenced pinstripe suits.

Gigi Hadid walked the runway in a pale blue dress barefoot, her sister Bella Hadid sported a pink knit top, lilac jeans, and a grey hat, while Kaia Gerber made a splash in a flowing floral dress with dramatic sleeves.

And Jacobs also appeared to reference the costumes in new HBO series Euphoria, especially in relation to neon brights and shiny tights, as well as the metallic eyeshadow Pat McGrath swiped on many of the models’ lids.

Brock Collection and Badgley Mischka also presented on the final day of New York Fashion Week.

Zendaya feared she would be set on fire by her Cinderella-inspired gown at the 2019 Met Gala after it began to overheat.

The 22-year-old stepped onto the red carpet at the prestigious fashion event back in May with stylist Law Roach, who acted as her Fairy Godmother.

He found Zendaya’s Tommy Hilfiger dress and made it glow blue, transforming her into a real-life Disney princess on the red carpet.

However, the Spider-Man: Far From Home star revealed that there was a team of people controlling the dress from the stands overlooking the red carpet at the Met Gala.

“The dress was like a science project,” she told Vogue.com. “It was animatronic, and there were literally two people in the stands moving it with remote controls. I had no idea that it was going to heat up because there were so many batteries and wires in it.

“It got really hot – like, I was a little bit scared – and I just said, ‘I should probably get this off before I roast…'”

The Tommy Hilfiger tribute to Cinderella was a hit on social media, however, there was one famous face who disapproved of the star’s Met Gala look.

Commenting on an image of Zendaya on the social media site, Mean Girls star Lindsay Lohan raged: “Claire Danes did that with @ZacPosen already.”

The 32-year-old then addressed the Homeland star directly, and complimented the actress, who wore a similar style to the bash three years ago.

“@ClaireDanes, you wore this dress so beautifully,” she added. “I don’t know why someone thinks that they can be more chic. Ever.”

Zendaya later responded to Lindsay’s criticism in an interview, and said was unaffected by the unnecessary comments.

“Maybe in some strange way, that comment made them feel better that day. People are only negative because negativity is eating away at them,” she added.

Law Roach: ‘Ariana Grande owns her iconic look’

Law Roach is confident Ariana Grande won’t be switching up her “iconic” look any time soon.

The 25-year-old kicked off her eagerly awaited Sweetener World Tour in New York on Monday night (18Mar19), with her long-time stylist Law once again curating her looks for the 80-date trek.

Speaking to Page Six about Ariana’s signature style, Law gushed: “Ariana Grande is absolutely iconic. The ponytail is iconic. The A-line skirts are iconic. The over-the-knee boots are iconic. For me, it’s a formula to play with.”

“(The look is) authentic to her, she owns that space and I don’t think she should change or try to change to please anybody. She owns the ponytail. If you put that silhouette behind a screen and backlit it, everyone in the world would see that and say, ‘That’s Ariana Grande.’ And that’s powerful!”

Fans got their first glimpse at her tour wardrobe at the Times Union Center in Albany on Monday. Showing off her flat stomach in a series of mini skirt and bralette combos, Ariana wowed the audience with her vocals and outfits. Michael Ngo was behind a lot of the looks, including a pink PVC bra top and matching bottoms with a garter skirt.

“I can tell you that I’ve never seen Ariana this excited (about her outfits),” Law continued. “She’s in a place now that she’s never been as a woman, as a human, as a musician, as an artist.”

Ariana will next be taking the Sweetener World Tour to Boston on Wednesday.

Law Roach: ‘My clients have conviction in their clothes’

Stylist Law Roach’s A-list clientele don’t care what people say about their wardrobe choices.

Style trailblazers Zendaya, Celine Dion and Ruby Rose are all on his roster, with Law helping each star establish themselves as a force to be reckoned with on the red carpet.

Talking to The Guardian, Law explained of his approach to styling: “You want to play, and you want to take risks. My clients also don’t care what people say.”

Case in point is 22-year-old Zendaya’s 2016 Grammy Awards vibe.

“We went to the Grammys after David Bowie had just passed, and she wore a tuxedo and a mullet in homage. You’ve got to be a strong girl to do that on the red carpet,” he praised. “You have to have conviction to say, ‘I like this, and I think I look cool, and f**k you to everybody who doesn’t.’ I think all my girls have an element of ‘f**k you’ in them.”

Law is also the man behind The Greatest Showman star’s 2015 Oscars outfit, a look which prompted TV presenter Giuliana Rancic to comment that Zendaya, who wore a cream silk Vivienne Westwood dress and her hair in dreadlocks, looked like she smelled of “patchouli oil. Or weed”.

Giuliana’s throwaway remark led to a public outcry, which America’s Next Top Model judge Law is certain helped to change the conversation around black hair.

“What’s appropriate for black hair at the Oscars. What’s appropriate for black hair in the workplace. That story got billions of impressions, and I believe it did help to bring about change,” he said.

Law Roach styles first runway for Bosideng

Law Roach styled his very first runway show for Bosideng during New York Fashion Week.

The celebrity stylist has previously worked with A-listers including Ariana Grande, Zendaya and Celine Dion, but has never been responsible for a catwalk before.

And in an interview with WWD, Law explained that working with the sporty label was the perfect way to achieve a career milestone.

“I was super-excited that they did (choose me). It was my first time styling at a New York Fashion Week show. It was exciting,” he beamed. “I’m actually really flattered and honoured that this brand chose me. They could have easily used a stylist from Shanghai or somewhere else. The fact that they saw something in my work that made them want to collaborate with me was like, ‘Wow.’”

Bosideng launched in 1976 and is currently the largest down clothing company in China, with its headquarters is based in Shanghai. This meant that the American fashion expert’s first runway gig was a particularly memorable experience, as he had to navigate working alongside many non-English speakers, while he didn’t speak Mandarin.

“It was challenging but also amazing how the language of fashion is so universal — so many of the things that we were doing, we just understood each other,” he insisted, adding that even with the language barrier, he had an instant connection with Bosideng designer Zhu Lin. “It was so weird, because it was like we were the same person.”

The catwalk show took place at the Spring Studios in New York City on Tuesday (11Sep18). Supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio opened the show while celebrity attendees included Anne Hathaway, Jeremy Renner and Olivia Palermo.
