Zendaya is the newly minted CFDA Fashion Icon and it’s very much deserved.

Go inside the 2021 CFDA Awards to see Daya accept her award, along with flicks of Ciara, IMAN, Dapper Dan, Kid Cudi, Karrueche and more inside…

Zendaya made history at the 2021 CFDA Fashion Awards. And we’re totally not surprised.

The fashion world has put some respect on the 25-year-old actress’ name, crowning her the 2021 CFDA Fashion Icon, making her the youngest person ever to receive the honor.

The DUNE actress is no stranger to slaying a red carpet event, so it was a no-brainer to usher her into fashion’s elite circle. From Disney star to becoming the red carpet’s “reigning monarch,” Zendaya has earned the title “icon” when it comes to fashion.

Last night, the “Euphoria” actress further solidified her icon status when she pulled up at the Council of Fashion Designers of America awards ceremony held at The Grill Room in NYC wearing a red two-piece ensemble custom made by Vera Wang with Bulgari jewels. The star’s bandeau and skirt was accessorized with 60 carats of Bulgari diamonds. And she topped her look off with long knotless braids that trailed past her behind.

The EMMY winning actress joins an elite group of fashion icons like Beyoncé, Rihanna and Naomi Campbell, who have all received the honor in the past.

With help from her fashion soulmate Law Roach, Daya made her mark in fashion with stylish looks that turn heads and she also became the face of luxury brands like Lancôme, Bulgari and Valentino.

Making the moment extra sweet, legendary supermodel IMAN presented Zendaya with the honor.


Peep a clip from her acceptance speech below: 

The Spider Man actress’ boyfriend, Tom Holland, gushed over her after she won, proving to be her biggest fan:


“Naaa stop it. An incredible achievement for the most incredible person,” he wrote on Instagram. “Congrats @zendaya and @luxurylaw you guys deserve every bit of this.”



Fashion icon Dapper Dan also made history, becoming the first Black designer to win the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award from the Council of Fashion Designers of America.




Fashion designer Christopher John Rogers – who won the coveted CFDA/VOGUE Fashion Fund in 2019 – won the American Womenswear Designer of the Year award. Congrats!

Several celeb fashion lovers were in the mix, including Ciara (in Tom Ford), Karrueche, Kid Cudi, ASAP Ferg (in Gucci), Kehlani and more:
