In a recently released video by Yash Raj Films’ YouTube channel, Ranbir Kapoor admitted to having a crush on Zendaya, during the promotions of his forthcoming movie, Shamshera, and we can clearly see why. The 25-year-old Euphoria star is an absolute head-turner.

Zendaya has not only been praised for her performances in Dune and Spider-Man: No Way Home, her quirky fashion sense, cool attitude and adorable Instagram pictures have won millions of hearts across the world. We pick a few of our favourite moments from Zendaya’s Instagram page:


For the Los Angeles premiere of her film, Spider-Man: Far from Home, Zendaya chose a daring Armani Privé gown with a bare back and a sleek cutout neckline. A classic, black pair of Christian Louboutin heels and deep red hair completed the look. The red and black sparkly gown was a perfect homage to the Spider-Man suit.

Julia Roberts had blown us away in her all-grey oversized suit at the Golden Globes in the 1990s and Zendaya channeled the exact energy into this look. She was seen exiting a hotel during her press tour for Spider-Man: Far From Home in a matching oversized grey shirt and trousers with suspenders. Her open hair made a perfect contrast to the grey outfit. The Giorgio Armani ensemble was paired with open-toe heels.

The Malcolm & Marie actress shared a childhood photograph, thanking her fans for wishing her on her 24th birthday. In a cowboy hat and a matching white T-shirt with a cowboy boot print and jeans, it seems baby Zendaya was just as fashionable as her older self.

The stunning makeup paired with open, curly hair can steal any heart. Perfect as an after-party look, the smoky eyeliner with fresh dewy makeup and loads of highlights look beautiful on the actress.

Euphoria has been hailed as one of Zendaya’s best performances till date. And while she has posted her fair share of pictures from the show, this was the first look from Season 2 of the hard-hitting teen drama on Disney+Hotstar. The photograph is probably one of the few pictures of her character, Rue, smiling.

Zendaya winning a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series, for her portrayal of Rue in Euphoria, was a high point in her career. And as always, her outfit took the spotlight at the awards too. Her longtime stylist, Law Roach, put her in yet another Giorgio Armani outfit with a shiny stone-studded bandeau top and polka-dotted black skirt.

The Spider-Man co-stars had managed to keep their relationship under the wraps for quite some time. Although the two rarely ever shared couple pictures on social media, this was Zendaya’s first post with Tom Holland on his birthday. She posted a black and white photo of her and longtime beau Tom that broke the Internet and several hearts. The co-stars had been linked together since their first project in Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017), but their romance was confirmed later in July 2021. Since then, Tom and Zendaya, popularly known as Tomdaya have become much more open about their relationship.

Zendaya’s chic look and her beautiful personality shines through in every frame. She will be seen next in Dune: Part II (2023) alongside Gen Z heartthrob Timothee Chalamet and Challengers (2023) directed by Luca Guadagnino who also directed Call Me By Your Name among others.
