Zendaya Delivered a Knockout Vintage Moment at the Green Carpet Fashion Awards



This weekend, the Green Carpet Fashion Awards went virtual. The awards ceremony was streamed on YouTube and honored “the best of sustainable fashion,” celebrating brands or personalities who make use of both ethical and eco-mindedness practices. Among those awarded accolades this year were Sindiso Khumalo, a South African designer based in Cape Town, who won the Independent Designer Award for her work with environmentally-safe textiles. Another guest of honor was Zendaya, who picked up the Visionary Award for her efforts in promoting diversity and inclusion in both fashion and film. She dressed up for the occasion at home and posed for the digital red carpet in a vintage dress from the year she was born.

Zendaya and her image architect, Law Roach, have been thoughtful with her fashion choices as of late. Recently, she has worn sustainable couture from brands such as Rahul Mishra, among others. For the Green Carpet Fashion Awards, Zendaya wore a Versace dress from its fall 1996 collection, designed by Gianni Versace himself. The slinky evening gown, which is embellished with dazzling beads, felt just as fresh and modern today. Who needs a custom creation when the fashion archives already have so many treasures to uncover? Zendaya certainly knows this, and she totally stole the show.
