Zendaya has, yet again, proved she doesn’t take rude Twitter trolls lightly. Outspoken against body-shaming and sexism, Zendaya routinely flexes her Twitter skills to call out unsolicited critiques of her beauty and body.

Perhaps the most shocking moment of the night was when Taylor Swift walked onstage to present an award to Ruby Rose, newest member of the singer’s girl squad. At the awards event, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Saturday, Transparent director Jill Soloway also announced that Caitlyn Jenner, who was honored with the best reality show award for I Am Cait, would appear in the next season of the Amazon series.

After some scandalous appearances by Beyonce and Kylie Jenner on the red carpet, it’s not really a huge deal to see celebrities show up to award ceremonies in see-through outfits. Yes, they’re almost over the top with the skin show and it’s all but normal. However, channeling this trend IRL may not be even the slightest bit feasible. High street fashion brand, Self Portrait, has been helping all those A-listers who can’t go nearly naked on the red carpet don the see-through trend with their modest see-through dresses. Nicknamed the naked dress, these babies are lined with a skin coloured fabric, that gives the appearance of a see-through gown, without really showing off much skin. Here are few celebrities who swear by the upcoming trend:
You don’t have to be an adult to be a fashion icon and these young stars prove this to be true. Take Kiernan Shipka for example. She started out on Mad Men as a kid and after seven seasons on the air, she blossomed into a red carpet newbie into a seasoned pro. Elle Fanning’s another standout.
The popstar commands a very loyal army of followers, and has no problem calling you out in front of her 13.8 million Instagram followers. The Casey Undercover actress appears on the cover of Modeliste magazine’s November issue, and their art department made the mistake of retouching the wrong girl. So I took it upon myself to release the real pic (right side) and I love it.” The teenager, who’s already a one-name wonder, requested that the publication pull the image down off of their social media channels and website (they obliged). An image from Zendaya’s photoshoot for Modeliste magazine. Photo: Facebook “We understand that re-touching of photos is a sensitive subject not only in the fashion industry but across all media,” Modeliste magazine shared on Facebook alongside an image of Zendaya on location in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. “Upon reviewing edited images in comparison with the originals, Modeliste Editor-in-Chief, Amy McCabe jointly with Zendaya and her parents made the immediate decision to pull the issue and are working with Zendaya at her request to publish the complete un-edited and authentic images.” The post added that the full set of unretouched images will be released on Wednesday and that they “stand to represent and advocate a message of positive body image, self love, and embracing all aspects of individuality, natural beauty and the empowerment of women.” Within 12 hours, Zendaya’s post racked up more than half a million likes and received nearly 13,000 comments.
On Tuesday night, she lambasted Modeliste, an independent print and digital fashion magazine, for slimming down her legs and torso. So I took it upon myself to release the real pic (right side) and I love it.” The editors at Modeliste were quick on their feet and swiftly pulled down the retouched images, though.
“Zendaya is amazing — she has a lot of opinions about beauty and she really knows her stuff,” says makeup artist Allan Avendaño, who has been working with the singer and actress for a few years. Avendaño created the five beauty looks you see here in partnership with the team at Mane Addicts and we have his exclusive breakdowns. The Inspiration: Ronnie Spector in the 1960s “The first look we created was inspired by Ronnie Spector and the 1960s girl group.” Lips: “We colored in the entire lip with a liner and left it,” says Avendaño of the pale pink lip he created for this Ronettes-inspired beauty look. Eyes: When it comes to a cat eye, experimentation is key says Avendaño.
Zendaya Coleman, the outspoken Disney star who slays with her fashion-forward sense of style, ever-changing wigs, and amazing words, is at Paris Fashion Week and her presence isn’t just a breath of fresh air, it’s the missing piece, the thing you didn’t even know you needed until it made its spectacular grand entrance. The Kardashian-Jenners are overexposed (the Hadid sisters as well), Rihanna is cool but also cool, and Elizabeth Olsen is beautiful and has sisters who make amazing clothes but — let’s be honest — kind of boring. Then comes Zendaya, walking through Charles de Gaulle in athleisure, appearing like a beacon of hope. She dresses in outfits many wouldn’t dare try, cozies up to the kooky Vivienne Westwood and even wears her equally out-there designs, changes her hair from cornrows to a pixie to a topknot based on her mood, and doesn’t hold back from saying what’s on her mind. When she opens her mouth and words come out, they’re poetic and prophetic, whether she’s responding to a paparazzi asking if she has any advice to young girls “who think they’re ugly and stuff,” or tweeting explainers regarding the technicalities behind wigs. All hail Zendaya. Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.
Ever since its inception in 1959, Barbie had been subjected to many controversies, despite its tremendous popularity. Albeit having millions of fans worldwide, the petite adult doll – the first of its kind – is attacked for its unrealistic portrayal of female body, which critics argue, results in body image issues among young girls.A lot many artists have come up with similar but more realistic dolls – like Lammily – who has normal bodily proportions, to combat the issue, but none of them could match the popularity of Barbie. Although Mattel Inc., the makers of Barbie, aren’t motivated to change her proportions, they did broaden the iconic doll’s beauty standards, making her step out of her blonde image and embrace diverse looks. One of the significant move was the launch of celebrity Barbies, modelled on influential personalities from all walks of life; there are Barbies after singer Beyonce, Chancellor Angela Merkel, Bollywood star Katrina Kaif, etc.Barbie has found her latest inspiration in actress/singer Zendaya Coleman, who is of multi-racial background. The 19-year-old celebrity found herself subjected to harsh criticisms for her red carpet look at the Oscars this year; Zendaya’s dreadlocks was then mocked by Fashion Police reporter Giuliana Rancic, who passed some impudent remarks, inciting a race row. Zendaya later took to Twitter to express her thoughts. “There is a fine line between what is funny and disrespectful,” Zendaya wrote. “Someone said something about my hair at the Oscars that left me in awe. Not because I was relishing in rave outfit reviews, but because I was hit with ignorant slurs and pure disrespect.”“To say that an 18-year-old woman with locs must smell of patchouli oil or ‘weed’ is not only a large stereotype but outrageously offensive,” she added. To honour Zendaya, Barbie decided to make dolls modelled exactly on her Oscar red carpet look – in a Vivienne Westwood gown and dreadlocks – championing diversity. Zendaya is thrilled to have a Barbie after her, and she shared a picture of her version of Barbie on Instagram.Mattel’s move has been commended by people around the world, including celebrities.Meanwhile Nicki Minaj got chastised for her reactions to Zendaya Barbie. The Anaconda singer, while congratulating the teen, shared a picture of her own version of Barbie which was launched a couple of years ago. Minaj got trolled for trying to steal the show from Zendaya.In pics: Celebrity Barbies
With summer’s end fast approaching, this week’s best-dressed celebs seem fully aware there’s only a precious few weeks left for leg-baring dresses.

From Kate Mara’s daring leather Valentino dress to Zendaya’s strapless culotte ensemble, here are the rest of this week’s best dressed.

It’s no surprise that supermodel turned actress Cara Delevingne is wearing her best threads for the press tour for her first feature film, “Paper Towns.” She particularly shined at the New York premiere in a silver embellished cutout dress by Saint Laurent. The rising star wasn’t the only one who shimmered this week. Katie Holmes was also seen in the Big Apple wearing a metallic silver long-sleeved top paired with pleated leather culottes by Zac Zac Posen.

Chanel made the skirt suit a staple, Diane Keaton made pants acceptable, and Angelina Jolie made it cool. Menswear for women, once viewed as a standout risk on the red carpet, has now become a go-to ensemble for so many. While the borrowed-from-the-boys look is simple in conception, it’s diverse in what it can evoke. Wear a blazer without a shirt for some sexiness (amp it up a notch with some boob jewelry á la Jennifer Aniston); layer a crop top or bandeau underneath just like the kids for a young and fresh feeling (just look to Lorde for inspiration); or be ready for a business meeting — or to save the world — in Amal Clooney’s case. Basically, the style suits (pun absolutely intended) just about anyone’s sartorial sensibilities.
