At just the young age of 21, former Disney star Zendaya has quickly become a fashion icon. However, in a recent round table discussion her longtime stylist Law Roach revealed several major brands refused to dress her for red carpet events.
“Zendaya made it to the cover of vogue. She has never worn Valentino, she has never worn Gucci, she has never worn Chanel. She only wore Dolce [& Gabbana] when she got a Dolce [& Gabbana] campaign. We built [her] career and my career using smaller brands and emerging designers to prove a point that it can happen!
It’s a big f*ck you because we all know the [public relations] wants to bring someone to you because ‘oh she can get her in Valentino’ but what I wanted to prove was that she doesn’t have to be in Valentino to become a fashion girl. So now that everyone wants to dress her, I go back and say ‘Not this season!'”
