Zendaya reveals she wore an outfit comprised entirely of Target clothing during her first red carpet: ‘I thought I was fly’

Zendaya spoke about the development of her views on style during a recent interview with InStyle.

The 25-year-old actress discussed various aspects of her past with regard to her sense of dress in the sit-down and told the media outlet numerous anecdotes from her past.

At one point during the interview, the Dune actress spoke about how she put together an outfit comprised of clothing that was entirely purchased from the retail store. 

Keeping it real: Zendaya reminisced about wearing clothing from Target at her first movie premiere during a recent interview with InStyle; she is seen at the 71st Emmy Awards in 2019

Feeling good: The Dune actress pointed out that, during the premiere event,  'I thought I was fly. I felt cool'; she is pictured in 2010 though it is unclear if this was the actual outfit she was talking about but it is the first red carpet event where she was pictured

‘When I was 14 and at my first movie premiere, my outfit was a bunch of stuff that I had from Target. And I thought I was fly. I felt cool,’ she said.

Zendaya also pointed out that she took her time at the event as a learning experience and still remembers what she learned at the function.

‘To this day, I think that’s really all that matters. Then you know you’re doing the right thing,’ she expressed.

The Euphoria star did note, however, that she does put time and effort into her red carpet appearance and figuring out what movements work with her clothing.  

Interesting approach: During the sit-down, Zendaya expressed that she thought of red carpet events as prominent ways to show off new 'characters and narratives'; she is pictured in 2019

‘When I put on an outfit, I will occasionally look at it in the mirror and see what poses work with the silhouette. I do think a little bit about that.’

Zendaya expanded on her statement, and remarked that she saw each major event as an opportunity to try out new fashion ideas.

‘I think about red carpets as having their own characters and narratives. We build a little story for all the looks. It’s like an extension of my acting career in a weird way — you just pop this wig on or whatever it is,’ she said.

She added, ‘Clothes sometimes are very emotional, so I get to embody these different facets — maybe they’re of myself, or maybe they’re alter egos. But I get to meet these different women through clothes.’ 

Looking back: The Euphoria star also expressed that she takes 'a lot of style inspiration from my grandmothers'; she is pictured in 2019

The performer went on to express that she admired many of her predecessors’ respective senses of style and kept visual aids around her home in case she needed to find a quick reference.

‘I have a picture of Diahann Carroll on my wall. And I take a lot of style inspiration from my grandmothers,’ she said.

Zendaya also reminisced about one of her very first splurges and noted that she still had her purchase lying around. 

Looking to the future: Zendaya concluded the sit-down by expressing that, although she turned 25 last month, she felt 'like I just started my 20s'; she is seen in 2018

‘I think it was my first time in Paris for my Disney show, and I bought this teeny Louis Vuitton bag. It’s pretty cute. I still have it somewhere,’ she said.

The performer concluded the sit-down by speaking about how she was looking forward to the future while trying to come to terms with aging.

‘I’m ready for 25, but it’s a little scary. I feel like I just started my 20s, so that’s a little strange to wrap my head around. I’m closer to 30 than I am to 19,’ she said.

Zendaya humorously added: ‘It’s all downhill from here.’
