When it comes to the red carpet, we can always count on Zendaya to hold her own and last night was no exception. On Sunday, February 27, just before the highly anticipated and heartbreaking season finale of Euphoria on HBO Max, the actress posted her latest look on Instagram for the 2022 NAACP Image Awards: a green and red strapless dress by Balmain. The new red carpet cut was vintage, particularly from the brand’s 1956 collection, and handpicked by none other than Zendaya’s go-to stylist Law Roach. She completed her look with simple diamond jewelry, including a pair of earrings from BVLGARI.
In a message published by Roach himself, he wrote, “And then THIS happened…. @zendaya in vintage @balmain for @naacpimageawards a thank you @olivier_rousteing for letting us into the archives ❤️💚🖤 Could there have been a more perfect dress???”
