The CFDA noted Zendaya’s red carpet looks including the all-white Rick Owens number she wore to the 'Dune' premiere in London this week and the purple Versace dress she wore at the 2021 BET Awards, which paid homage to a 2003 Beyoncé look, as well as the gold-plated fresh-off-the-runway Loewe dress for the Women in Film Awards, and the Tom Ford’s purple metal breastplate worn at the 2020 Critics Choice Awards.

The CFDA also commented on the launch of the Daya by Zendaya clothing line, which proved to be an early pioneer of gender-fluid designs and inclusive size ranges. She has equally been a supporter of both emerging designers and established fashion houses, and is a spokesperson for Lancôme, Bulgari, and Valentino. Zendaya joins a list of Fashion Icon recipients including Beyoncé Knowles, Naomi Campbell, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, and Jennifer Lopez.

Meanwhile, The CFDA will honor Anya Taylor-Joy with the first Face of the Year award. Following Taylor-Joy’s groundbreaking performance in 'The Queen’s Gambit' on Netflix, she has gone on to grace countless national and international magazines including Elle, InStyle, L’Officiel, Tatler, Vogue, Vanity Fair, and W Magazine.

The 2021 CFDA Fashion Awards will be held at The Pool + The Grill, the iconic venue housed within the landmark Seagram Building on Park Avenue.
