Zendaya will receive the Fashion Icon award at the upcoming Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Fashion Awards.
The Euphoria actress has cemented her status as a style star in recent years, and wowed in a white Rick Owens number at the Dune premiere in London on Tuesday night, and turned heads at the 2021 BET Awards in a purple Versace dress that paid homage to a memorable 2003 Beyoncé look.
Now, officials at the CFDA are going to honour Zendaya for her contribution to the fashion industry at the annual awards ceremony on 10 November.

“It’s not just the red carpet that has marked Zendaya’s meteoric rise in our industry. In 2013, Zendaya launched the Daya by Zendaya clothing line, early on pioneering gender-fluid designs and a more inclusive size range,” a CFDA representative commented. “She also notably collaborated with CFDA board member Tommy Hilfiger on the Tommy x Zendaya collection, inspired by strong, iconic women and presented in Paris first and then at the historic Apollo Theater in New York. Today, she is a spokesperson for Lancôme, Bulgari, and Valentino.”
In receiving the Fashion Icon prize, Zendaya follows in the footsteps of previous recipients including Beyoncé, Naomi Campbell, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, and Jennifer Lopez.
