From Audrey Hepburn to Diane Keaton, there are certain figures who have cemented their names in fashion history as style icons. That’s because they never sported an outfit that wasn’t absolutely flawless or instantly iconic. While the late Audrey Hepburn solidified chic 60’s style, film legend Diane Keaton perfected the women-in-menswear look during the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s. There are numerous others, like Grace Kelly and Princess Diana, who are considered style icons as well.
With all that said, we’d like to welcome a new member into the unwritten book of fashion history – someone who kills it every single time she steps onto a red carpet (or anywhere, really.) She is young, bold, and brave when it comes to her style and she has already made a name for herself as a modern style icon. Of course we are talking about Zendaya.
Zendaya has mastered the art of combining classy, sexy, chic, and modern all together in her looks. She’s not afraid to push the envelope, but also rock classic staples at the same time. She often sports the menswear look, which you know we love. Overall, she’s the best-dressed woman we’ve seen in a long time, and we’ve decided to round up just ten of her best looks. Check out these ten examples that show why Zendaya is a modern style icon:
Zendaya first caught our attention with this glamourous gown at the 2015 Oscars – which also made headlines, after E! host, Giuliana Rancic, had the nerve to make derogatory remarks about Zendaya’s dreadlocks.
Rocking a tiny tube top like this isn’t for everyone, but when you’ve got the tall, slender figure of Zendaya, there’s no worries.
Our style icon is known for rocking menswear and this all black suit looked absolutely perfect on her.
A powder pink suit? Count us in. Count us all the way in!
A mint green suit?! Count us in again!
Zendaya looked absolutely stunning in this emerald green gown at the 2019 Emmy Awards.
Talk about unique. We’ve never seen a top like the one she wore to the Armani Prive event recently.
We also loved this all black sexy-chic look she sported at the Marc Jacobs Spring 2020 showing.
When we said “modern,” did you think of metallic “melted” crop tops like this one? Daring enough for you?
This look reminds us of a present-day Audrey Hepburn. It’s simple, flirty, and classy all in one.
