13 Times Zendaya And Her Stylist, Law Roach, Perfectly Understood The Assignment

If there's one thing about Zendaya, it's that she *will* nail that red carpet look.

Zendaya is a fashion icon, there's no doubt about it. And with the help of her long-time stylist Law Roach, there hasn't been a single look she couldn't pull off flawlessly.

But one of the coolest things she does with her fashion is reference her movies through her looks. Here are 13 of the best ones:

1. First, when she pulled up to the Dune: Part Two event in Mexico City and looked like a total sci-fi goddess ready for battle:

2. When she attended the Paris premiere for Dune: Part Two and fully drew inspiration from her character Chani's costume:

3. When she went to The Greatest Showman premiere literally dressed as the greatest showman:

The inspo:

4. When she attended an event for Spiderman: No Way Home and her blazer and tights were decked out in jeweled spider webs — even her earrings are tiny webs.
