All week long, Zendaya's stylist Law Roach is giving Twist the exclusive scoop on the effortlessly chic looks the star wears throughout her N.Y.C. press tour. Catch up on what you missed so far by checking out Part One and Part Two.
The Shake It Up star caused our jaws to drop when we saw what she planned to wear to host 106 & Park's 106 & Prom special on BET. Once again, Law gives us the full breakdown below:
Why it worked for this event: Zendaya hosted the music show's prom special with her bestie Trevor Jackson (who happened to stop by our offices this week!), but rather than wear the typical poofy Princess-esque gown, she went a different route. "Zendaya would never wear a dress to prom," Law says. So they decided to try something Law describes as, "It Girl in Boyswear." Law had plenty of killer shoe options, but ultimately decided on a pair of ridiculously amazing Giuseppe Zanotti sandals with gold star accents. The outfit's finishing touches? A topbun and glam red lip.
What inspired the look: Zendaya has a style all her own, but for this occasion she looked to another star for some fashion inspiration. "We wanted to channel Zendaya's inner Janelle Monae! They met while performing at the White House," Law reveals. And not only are we more than obsessed with this ensemble, but Zendaya was, too. "She fell in love with it as soon as I pulled it out the garment bag," he says.
Get the look: If you want to stand out at prom in a tux like Zendaya, Law shares the trick to rocking something so bold: Good fit and confidence. If you can't afford her exact getup, we found tux trousers for just $47.97 and a jacket for $55.99.
