The 26-year-old actress took to Instagram on Tuesday, August 22, to show off her fresh ‘do, which features layers and tons of volume. “Needed a little refresh,” Zendaya wrote over the snap of her hair transformation. 

Zendaya’s new look comes after she unveiled shorter locks in December 2022 after years of sporting shoulder-length strands. 

After first unveiling the change at the Euphoria FYC event in Los Angeles on December 19, Zendaya rocked the chop in a video shared via her Instagram Story. In the clip, the California native ran her fingers through her tresses, which stopped just below her chin.

When she’s not spicing up her coiffure, Zendaya can be found slaying trends.

In June, Zendaya made an oversized suit look sexy at the Bulgari Hotel Roma grand opening. The Spider-Man star teamed the slouchy blazer and loose-fitting trousers with a fish net-esque tank top. Zendaya completed the ensemble with pointed-toe pumps and dangling diamond earrings.

A few days later, she pulled off head-to-toe patterns at the louisvuitton-show-see-the-stars/” data-ylk=”slk:Louis Vuitton menswear spring/summer show;elm:context_link;itc:0″ class=”link “Louis Vuitton menswear spring/summer show — Pharrell Williams’ first as creative director.

In April, Zendaya was announced as Louis Vuitton’s newest ambassador alongside a campaign in promotion of its iconic Capucines bag, which featured the Euphoria star. In the shots taken by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, Zendaya modeled the popular purse, which launched in 2013 and is named after the Rue Neuve-des-Capucines — the Paris street where Louis Vuitton opened his first store in 1854.

This ‘slow-fashion’ Seattle designer says there’s enough clothing

  • July 26, 2023

Her approach is based in her long history of thrifting, but also in Seattle’s vibrant sustainable-clothing scene. Brands like Girlfriend Collective and Prairie Underground, vintage stores like Indian Summer and Bon Voyage, and designers like Janelle Abbott are among the locals mindfully pushing the dial forward on what sustainable clothing can look like.

In mcLean’s case, that look might be anything from a bucket hat made from a Burberry scarf to patchworked hoodies to hand-dyed denim shorts.

“Seattle is going to be a big place for sustainable fashion,” mcLean declares. Despite our city getting forever blasted for being a paragon of anti-fashion, she believes our penchant for eco-conscious fashion is what makes us unique. “We don’t even second-guess being sustainable, it’s just the way we are,” she says.

Similarly, mcLean’s “bootleg” series brings DIY flair to discarded high-fashion items. She started bootlegging in high school when she flipped a thrifted Juicy Couture keychain into a necklace. Now, mcLean reworks luxury dust bags and metal label emblems from houses like Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Prada and Gucci into necklaces, underwear, bikinis and earrings. 

It’s a practice distinct from duping or knocking off a luxury brand — one closer to “fan art,” mcLean says. Drawing from the long tradition of streetwear-turned-luxury designer Dapper Dan (“My biggest bootleg idol,” says this dan), whose unsanctioned flips of Gucci and Louis Vuitton prints launched him to fame, mcLean sees her remixed items as a tip of the hat to luxury brands.

“It’s not ripping off somebody’s design, but more like, I respect you and I see you and I see that you do these cool things and I wanna be like you but I don’t wanna be you,” explains mcLean. (Her website includes a lengthy disclaimer stating all her designs are “repurposed,
