Our favourite Zendaya red-carpet looks and how you can recreate them for NYE

Two weeks after the Spider-Man: No Way Home premiere and we still cannot get over Zendaya's red carpet look. The Haute Couture Valentino dress featuring embroidered spider webs and a matching head piece was one of a series of outfits Zendaya wore in the lead up to the film's release. Thought to pay homage to the Spider-Man villains returning in the most recent instalment of the Marvel franchise, her latest red-carpet appearance inspired us to look back at some of her best outfits, giving you tips on how you can recreate them for New Year's Eve.


Zendaya wearing vintage Roberto Cavalli at the Ballon d'Or ceremony in Paris 2021

Roberto Cavalli vintage skeleton dress - 2021


Zendaya graced the red carpet at the Ballon d'Or ceremony in November 2021 wearing a vintage Roberto Cavalli dress from the label's autumn 2000 collection.


Restyled by creative director, Fausto Puglisi, the skintight black dress featured a skeletal frame down the spine, a detail fans believe references the Spider-Man villain Doc Ock who had mechanical arms attached to his back.


Pulling her hair back to the nape of her neck Zendaya's back piece stood out as the focal point of the look.


To re-create, style a little black dress with a statement jewellery piece such as a bold necklace or bodice chain, keeping your hair and makeup simple and natural to allow the jewellery to remain the centre of the look.


Valentino green and purple suit - 2021


Wearing a green suit from Valentino's spring/summer 2022 collection over top of a purple silk shirt, Zendaya seemingly paid homage to the Green Goblin villain during her appearance promoting the film on the Graham Norton Show in December 2021.


Styled with Bvlgari jewellery and Christian Louboutin pumps, the muted green tone of the suit balanced by the subtle hints of purple from the shirt and matching eye made for a stand out yet elegant look.


A bright coloured power suit is sure to wow for New Year's Eve. If you are feeling bold try styling a contrasting silk shirt underneath for a true recreation of this look.



Zendaya wearing custom Valentino for the world premiere of Spider-Man: No Way Home in 2021

Valentino spiderweb dress - 2021


In the most obvious homage to the film, Zendaya wore a custom Valentino dress embellished with spider webs and styled with a matching black mask and Louboutin heels to the world premiere for Spider-Man: No Way Home.


Believed to pay tribute to the black suit from Spider-Man 3 and the villain Venom, Zendaya dominated the red carpet as the best dressed star.


Choose a plunging neckline and high slit to recreate this effortlessly glamorous look for New Year's Eve. Pairing neutral tones with hints of black and a pulled back hairstyle will allow the dress to fully accentuate your figure.



Zendaya wearing Balmain at the 78th Annual Venice Film Festival in 2021

Balmain leather gown - 2021


Designed by Olivier Rousteing, Zendaya wore a custom Balmain wet-look leather gown to attend the 78th Annual Venice International Film Festival in September 2021.


With matching Louboutin nude heels and a Bvlgari necklace featuring 93.83 carats of cabochon-cut emerald, this look demonstrated Zendaya's ability to take even the most minimalist of dresses to a whole new level.


Style a skin-toned body-con dress with bright accessories and a smoky eye to recreate this sultry look for New Year's Eve.





Zendaya wearing Tom Ford at the 2020 Critics' Choice Award

Tom Ford fuchsia breastplate - 2020


For the 25th Annual Critics' Choice Awards in February 2020, Zendaya donned a Tom Ford spring/summer 2020 fuchsia chromed breastplate with a matching skirt.


Custom built to fit Zendaya's torso the breastplate was made from lacquered chromed acrylic and lined with leather.


Understandably not all of us can afford to have Tom Ford custom build a breastplate to fit our boobs, but with plenty of corset tops out there recreating this look is not impossible.


Accentuate your boobs by layering an under-bust corset or a corseted belt over the top of a dress, match different shades of the same colour to get the full effect of the look.


Zendaya wearing Vera Wang at the 2019 Emmy's

Vera Wang emerald city dress - 2019


Presenting an award at the 2019 Emmys alongside RuPaul, Zendaya wore a custom Vera Wang deep green gown featuring a sheer bustier and high slit.


Zendaya's stylish, Law Roach, collaborated with Vera Wang to design the look. As told to Vogue, Roach was inspired by the Emerald City scene from The Wiz, styling the look with Cartier jewels and matching emerald Brian Atwood shoes.


Rich jewel tones are perfect for New Year's Eve. Style with matching shoes and classic jewellery for a sleek and sophisticated look.




Zendaya wearing Alexandre Vauthier at a photo call for Spider-Man: Far From Home in 2019

Alexandre Vauthier power suit - 2019


Versatile with her style, Zendaya wore an Alexandre Vauthier tuxedo suit at a photo call for Spider-Man: Far From Home in London mid-2019.


Featuring a tuxedo jacket and vest with gold breasted buttons, black trousers, a white shirt and a black silk neck tie, Zendaya looked sharp in the suit in front of the back drop of Tower Bridge.


Style a power suit with simple jewellery to re-create this chic look, softening the structured lines of the suit with a silk or satin neck-tie just as Zendaya has done.







Zendaya wearing Ralph & Russo at GQ Men of the Year Awards in 2018

Ralph & Russo draped gown - 2018


Attending GQ Men of the Year in 2018, Zendaya wore Ralph & Russo purple and yellow silk gown with a crystal chain mail bodice, a thigh-high slit and a draped shoulder detail.


Styled with simple black pumps to match the black velvet ribbon detail, Zendaya did her own hair and make-up for the red carpet, opting for slicked back hair and a purple smoky eye to match the dress.


The bold choice of contrasting colours makes this look stand out as daring but elegant. Try your hand at styling opposing colours with a silk shirt and skirt or trouser combo.




Zendaya and her stylist Law Roach both wearing custom Vera Wang at the CFDA Awards in 2021

Vera Wang custom gown - 2021


A round up of our favourite Zendaya red carpet looks would not be complete without this custom made Vera Wang crop top and peplum-style skirt.


Attending the 2021 Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards in New York, Zendaya took to the red-carpet in a fiery two-piece design demonstrating exactly why she deserved the Fashion Icon Award.


Style a bold red two piece with sparkling silver jewellery for a show stopping look this New Year's Eve.





Having styled Zendaya since she was 14 years old, Law Roach has played a vital part in helping her make a name for herself as someone willing to take risks with fashion and together the two of them will no doubt continue to serve looks on the red carpet.
