Zendaya Coleman In Donna Karan – 2013 American Music Awards


Zendaya Coleman commanded the red carpet at the 2013 American Music Awards on Sunday evening at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California.

The Disney starlet put her own spin on an all-white look from Donna Karan’s Resort 2014 collection, edging up the long and languid, one-shoulder tunic top and white pants with a number of extensions—literally. Let us count the ways.

First she loaded on the silver bangles, along with a serpent arm bracelet, and a few door-knocker cocktail rings for good measure. A Swarovski clutch added even more sparkle.

Then, she strapped on an incarnation of the so-called stripper heels with a towering, silver pair. But the real accessory were her mega-long, board-straight locks that had Rapunzel written all of them.

She’s young; this is fun; and she can get away with it—for now. So why not. Do you agree?

    Whats with the shoes? She was all looking like a wind goddess, then you get to the shoes, and are like… those def needed to be strappy sandals

    She looks amazing she always does the girl is absolutely gorgeous. I love her style!!!

    It’s amazing to me that this 17-year-old looking like a 35-year-old is okay, particularly since other teens looking far less egregiously old have been battered for it around here.

    She had me completely… until I got to the shoes. The shoes are wearing her, not the other way around.

    I love this ensemble, sleek and fresh, too bad she ruined it with her unfortunate styling.

  6. Maria November 25, 2013 at 15:01 #

    This is what her mom should have worn. And those shoes are a horror show.

    stripper shoes: no she can’t get away with that. Way to ruin a lovely outfit

    Love the outfit–the shoes are not good, but you hardly notice them.

  9. CreoleLady November 25, 2013 at 02:57 #

    Too bad about the shoes. Something about this (length, difference in color between top/pants on my screen) makes me wonder if she is wearing the matching runway slacks. LOVE the runway look.

  10. Jeniffer November 25, 2013 at 02:41 #

    She looks stunning, every detail well selected and incorporated into entire image.

  11. KatieKate November 25, 2013 at 02:39 #

    It works for me. Even the shoes, shockingly. She’s a breath of fresh air when it comes to young ladies on the RC.

  12. Angela November 25, 2013 at 02:20 #

    Shoes are slightly too heavy, hair is sort of freaking me out.

    • Alina November 25, 2013 at 09:02 #

      +1 She reminded me of Jennifer Lopez.

  13. Saree November 25, 2013 at 02:07 #

    Whilst I do prefer this & Ariana’s route of dressing like you’re grown up, over someone like Miley’s, they still have that ‘try-factor’

    The heels spoil what could’ve been a good look, for any age really.

  14. Lisa November 25, 2013 at 01:52 #

    Zendaya looked like a goddess! She keeps slaying! Loved everything about her look!

  15. Malinda Wallace November 25, 2013 at 01:52 #

    She is WORKING IT. Look at that confidence! And you can tell she’s having a great time. I’ll totally give her this one.

  16. Yeliz November 25, 2013 at 01:38 #

    I quite dislike the shoes, but love the rest.

      I don’t really like the shoes, but for some reason she gets away with them as with the rest of the look.

  17. AW November 25, 2013 at 01:22 #

    I don’t love the shoes at all or really like the ensemble but I appreciate that she’s a young girl that doesn’t feel the need to be naked to get attention.

    Kudos to her.

    Also, what a beautiful face!

  18. Anj November 25, 2013 at 01:16 #

    I actually think this is an older person’s look, but she’s tall and has the confident to get away with it.

    The shoes are chunky but they’re pointed so it doesn’t look so bad but I can see why others wouldn’t like them.

    • Sleepless in Chicago November 25, 2013 at 12:51 #

      Agreed. She feels confident wearing this. The entire look works for me.

  19. Natalie November 25, 2013 at 01:14 #

    The shoes are way too heavy for this look.

  20. Christine November 25, 2013 at 01:13 #

    Them shoes are so tacky.

    Otherwise nice look from the ankles up.

    Love her hair.
