Emmys 2022 Fashion: Zendaya Understood the Assignment

The looks keep comin' and they don't stop comin'.

Zendaya wins Best Dressed in our 2022 Emmy fashion book. The actress and fashion icon, who is known for her revolving closet of fabulous runway looks, brought old Hollywood glam to the 74the Emmy Awards last night — and honestly, our eyes couldn’t be bothered to look anywhere else.

The Euphoria actress graced the Emmys red carpet in a strapless black satin Valentino ball gown complete with a cinched bodice, bow belt and pockets. According to the Valentino Instagram, the dress was “crafted after a Valentino Fall-Winter 87/88 red dress, helping to resignify an iconic piece by transporting it to the contemporary.”

The vintage-inspired dress was specifically designed for Zendaya by Pierpaolo Piccioli.

As the face of Valentino’s Pink PR Collection, the actress was styled by renowned fashion stylist Law Roach.

She accessorized the look with a stunning Bulgari necklace, stud earrings and a ring. The whole look was tied together with vintage loose curls held in place by a matching black satin headband.

Fans got a closeup of her Emmys ensemble during her acceptance speech for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series. Her portrayal of Rue in HBO’s Euphoria not only scored her an award, but a place in Emmy history as well. Zendaya is officially the youngest two-time Emmy winner in any acting category and became the first Black woman to win the award twice.

Even more jaw dropping was Zendaya’s after party dress. Once again she donned a Valentino number designed by Piccioli. This time an all red long sleeve couture gown with a plunging neckline and circular train.

Zendaya wasn’t the only celebrity who broke the Emmys fashion landscape. White and off-white attire had quite a moment as well — and after Labor Day nonetheless!

Fashion rules went out the window at the 2022 Emmys with several celebrities sporting all white and off-white ensembles. Andrew Garfield, Seth Rogan, Issa Rae, Kerry Washington, John Legend, and Oprah were just a few notable figures who broke the sacred No White After Labor Day fashion law. They looked hot doing it!
