Zendaya Coleman In Vivienne Westwood – 2015 Oscars

Zendaya Coleman In Vivienne Westwood - 2015 Oscars

Zendaya Coleman was also at the 2015 Oscars, held on Sunday (February 22) at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California.

She cut a statuesque profile in a Vivienne Westwood satiny off-white gown that featured the designer’s signature, period-inspired draped silhouette.

The off-the-shoulder detail, which fell into a sash at the back, created an elegant line with Chopard jewels also elevating the look.

While the dress was slightly mature for the young starlet, she attempted to add her own hip edge via a dreadlock-inspired ’do that ultimately nearly overwhelmed the more sophisticated—some may even say bridal—ensemble.

What do you make of her entrance?

    “But despite the firestorm, commenters on sites like Red Carpet Fashion Awards –ran by a black woman by the way– said things like: “[The look was] attention grabbing in the worst way, this is an eyesore. Was lil wayne her date? I agree with the above, the dreadlocks are not suitable for the event but her intentions showing up like this for attention is just plain tacky move” and “Oh my god. Talk about tacky and trying too hard. That hair is so… disgusting! And the dress looks like its gonna slip right off her body like a bed sheet.” When a naturally black hairstyle is deemed not “suitable” for a formal occasion, a conversation needs to be had.
    Clearly, Rancic is not the only one oblivious”

    She is adorable. Leave her alone.

    • DRO February 28, 2015 at 4:09 pm #

      OMG! Leave this poor girl alone. She is young, adorable, fun and its Hollywood and the Oscars folks!

    I like dreadlocks, especially when they are so well made. In that case, I think her hairstyle makes her head big and disproportionate to her body, maybe if she was more balanced with a dress with wide skirt, would have been better.

    I really appreciate that she wore dreadlocks to the Oscars and thought she presented them beautifully.

  5. lee February 23, 2015 at 7:07 pm #

    I think she looks amazing.
    She transforms this look into an easy, laid-back, elegant gown.
    And her dreads give it edge.
    One of my best looks from the night

    Dreadlocks are disgusting and not appropriate for the Oscars? The mindset of some commenters is very… interesting. I will remain polite and move on.

    Anyway, I like Zendaya’s hair and makeup. The dress is meh, I’m just not a fan of Vivienne Westwood’s typical silhouette.

  7. Laura February 23, 2015 at 8:02 am #

    She has no body for this gown, too thin

  8. Lauren February 23, 2015 at 6:55 am #

    There is no denying that this girl is gorgeous and I am in love with her dreadlocks. They are perfection. Dress is meh but from the neck up, flawless.

  9. Nadia99 February 23, 2015 at 6:10 am #

    I have to hand it to her, her dreadlocks are very well done (I’ve seen some ugly ones in my teenage years) but at that kind of event, with that kind of dress….no.

    • Nadia99 March 5, 2017 at 7:07 am #

      Two years later and I completely changed my mind.
      I hope her dreadlocks make a come back!!

  10. Jenny February 23, 2015 at 4:59 am #

    Attention grabbing in the worst way, this is an eyesore.
    Was lil wayne her date?

    I agree with the above, the dreadlocks are not suitable for the event but her intentions showing up like this for attention is just plain tacky move.

    • Karla February 23, 2015 at 2:14 pm #

      I didn’t realize that dreadlocks weren’t suitable for the oscars. Would it have been appropriate if she had worn straight (and traditionally white/European) hair instead? Furthermore, I didn’t realize that lil wayne was the only man in the world who has locs.

      Locs, and other styles of AA hair are beautiful. Unfortunately, many of the comments in this thread highlight underlying racism and highlight the fact that black hair is always politicized.

      The ignorance in these comments is astounding.

      • kelly February 24, 2015 at 4:14 am #

        it’s truly disgusting. these are ignorant, sad people.

      • Pete The Punk February 24, 2015 at 7:23 pm #

        Well said ;o)) x

    • kelly February 24, 2015 at 4:13 am #

      since when is black hair styled in a black hairstyle not appropriate for the oscars? you casual racism is not appropriate for this planet.

    • Pete The Punk February 24, 2015 at 7:22 pm #

      Who are you to say dreadlocks are not suitable for the event? Honestly – get over yourself!

  11. EmmaWoodhouse February 23, 2015 at 3:43 am #

    The hair looks really tortured. The dress looks like a cheap wedding dress. It’s a really strange, unmatched look.

  12. Bailey February 23, 2015 at 2:56 am #

    Oh my god. Talk about tacky and trying too hard. That hair is so…disgusting! And the dress looks like its gonna slip right off her body like a bed sheet

    • kelly February 23, 2015 at 3:19 am #

      there is nothing disgusting about dreadlocks.

      Excuse me but what is disgusting about dreadlocks? When some black does it, it’s ghetto. As soon as a white person touches it, it becomes trendy and cool. Sorry she didn’t want to put in some boring ass straight extensions and did something different.

      • Amy February 23, 2015 at 3:27 am #

        *someone

    • jane February 23, 2015 at 11:58 am #

      that is super offensive to say that her hair is disgusting.

    • Pete The Punk February 24, 2015 at 7:21 pm #

      It’s your comment that’s disgusting – quite a few comments on this page seem to be based on self righteous ignorance…

  13. Raquel February 23, 2015 at 1:46 am #

    I seem to be in the minority, but I think that she looks absolutely beautiful! I love her hair and makeup; especially in the closeups! I really do love this look.

    • Camina February 26, 2015 at 7:39 am #

      I’m with you, she’s gorgeous. She’s so young but has such grace already and she’s fearless with her hair, which I appreciate. I’m looking forward to seeing what else she’s done.

    • noo February 28, 2015 at 7:34 am #

      love the hair and make up, but i wish she had gone with a less repeated dress!

  14. Kaz February 23, 2015 at 1:45 am #

    Oh, honey – no.

  15. Jennaaa February 23, 2015 at 1:42 am #

    i lover her make up. She looks so flawless.

    • cherrysoftness February 23, 2015 at 2:15 am #

      I love the beauty look. But the rest belongs to a sad prom.

  16. TL February 23, 2015 at 1:42 am #

    Awful hair, and the ‘too bridal’ dress looks like it’s sliping

    • TL February 23, 2015 at 1:46 am #

      *slipping

  17. CreoleLady February 23, 2015 at 1:42 am #

    Giving such great face, wish the rest was up to that standard.

  18. Amy February 23, 2015 at 1:38 am #

    I love this. Girl, slay – I’m glad she went for dreadlocks because the Oscars are a super white event and she picked to honour her father’s culture instead of being very samey and going for straight hair.

    • Carla February 23, 2015 at 1:54 am #

      Not only that, it kinda makes her look a bit like Ava DuVernay. I love the hair. We’ve seen a version of this Vivian Westwood dress so many times it no longer warrants a comment.

      • julyol1972 February 23, 2015 at 6:11 am #

        I thought she was paying an homage to Ava as well! Thanks for picking up on that!

        • EmmaWoodhouse February 24, 2015 at 7:32 pm #

          Thanks for this reference. Even though I don’t love the hair as it is interpreted here, the reference point helps me to make sense of it.

  19. Phoenix February 23, 2015 at 1:36 am #

    Um, no. Just awful.

  20. kane February 23, 2015 at 1:34 am #

    I wouldn’t say this but do because it’s her particular choice of dress that emphasises the effect even more: she’s too thin to wear an off the shoulder-dress and the hair overwhelms her as well.

    • ayatlaw February 23, 2015 at 2:56 pm #

      +1 She is young and thin and should wear something flirty. The hair?! I mean why? Why? She is such a pretty girl (and she has style) but her street style is her best style. She needs a stylist to help with her event style.

      • Harlie March 7, 2015 at 10:23 pm #

        You are a terrible person

  21. Bec February 23, 2015 at 1:34 am #

    Atrocious.

  22. Christine February 23, 2015 at 1:33 am #

    This whole look is screaming wannabe and try-hardy.

    • Yeliz February 23, 2015 at 1:34 am #

      Exactly.

      Oof.

    • Alina February 23, 2015 at 6:42 am #

      +3. Not to be mean, but… why was she there?

      • msmsloan February 24, 2015 at 4:02 pm #

        She is there because she is an actress, because she wants to be, because she can afford to be, and be unlike you, she can be.

        • msmsloan February 24, 2015 at 4:04 pm #

          because (unlike) you, she can be.

    • Harlie March 7, 2015 at 10:20 pm #

      All i have to say is: haters gonna hate. U wish ur hair was that flawless
