If you’ve been anywhere near a TV, movie, or runway lately, you know 22-year-old former Disney channel star, Zendaya, is a triple (quadruple?) threat. The actor/singer/dancer and radiant beauty has had her hands in an array of projects lately. From her captivating role as a trapeze artist in The Greatest Showman to the Zendaya x Tommy collab for Tommy Hilfiger’s S/S 19 runway collection and the upcoming HBO series Euphoria, Zendaya’s already bright star is even more on the rise. Which, of course, is why we were elated to have the opportunity to get the inside scoop on her fairytale-inspired hairstyle for tonight’s Met Gala.
She’s known for having fun with fashion and her chameleon-like hair and makeup looks, so it’s no surprise that Zendaya aced this year’s camp theme in true Disney princess fashion. Teaming up again with her longtime hairstylist, Ursula Stephen, and image architect, Law Roach, Zendaya’s head-to-toe supercharged Cinderella look by Tommy Hilfiger fit in (or should we say, stood out!) perfectly on the pink carpet of the Met steps.
When asked how this dynamic duo of fairy godmothers helps to prepare Zendaya for a major event, Ursula noted, “With Zendaya, fashion really leads the way! The hairstyle is usually based on what she’s planning on wearing on the red carpet.” She went on further to explain that Law’s idea for the full look usually includes hair, so it’s really a team effort to bring that vision to life. We’ve gotta say: This electrified homage to one of Disney’s original ingénues is proof that Zendaya and her team always give 110%.
