We’re seeing blurred lines! Zendaya's striped MaxMara dress, Giuseppe Zanotti laced heels and stacked gold bangles is a major minimalist moment.

While her style can be sophisticated, there’s always a youthful, age-appropriate twist. Here, this Peter Pilotto runway look: a crisp button-up top with a light-hearted fun and flouncy skirt with pops of pastels walks the line perfectly.

Already quite the fashion chameleon, Zendaya steps out on a limb in a Vivienne Westwood plaid suit, H. Lorenzo cropped top, Ruthie Davis sandals and a seriously fly fedora –– and aces the look!

Zendaya’s no stranger to stripes; this time the artist breaks up the bold custom Nicci Hou look with origami folds and a slither of skin for the perfect dose of dimension.

The singer’s high-split style by Nicci Hou reveals a little leg, but is balanced by a demure yet vibrant rose print with completely covered sleeves.

Few people can pull off separates successfully on the red carpet, and Zendaya is one of them. The artist’s Emanuel Ungaro polka dot maxi skirt and ruffled blouse-combo adds a bit of whimsy to seriously chic hair and make-up.

We interrupt these red carpet moments to bring you snapshots of Zendaya front row at New York Fashion Week. This olive leather toggle coat and knee-high boots with an unexpected stark white satchel is so swoon-worthy.

She may be young, but Zendaya Coleman is batting in the big leagues when it comes to red carpet dressing. This dreamy Donna Karan look from the AMA's is giving us serious Cher nostalgia.

Ethereal-meets-biker chic is a killer combo on the red carpet (by Chloe and Veinarde). And the pumps, of course, blue us away!

Zendaya first caught our eye when she arrived on the red carpet at Teen VOGUE's annual Young Hollywood event wearing a long lamé pleated skirt by Reem Acra with a button-down blouse by Dolce & Gabbana. Her best fashion moment to date!

When the actress hit the Radio Disney carpet in this Juicy Couture short suit and Gucci ankle strap sandals we were officially sold on her style. The look was sleek and sophisticated but with a touch of whimsy.

During BET's 106 & Park prom themed segment, Zendaya showed she isn't a follower when it comes to fashion. The starlet opted for a sharp menswear tuxedo instead of the typical prom dress.

What a bright idea for the fashionista to pair this marigold belted Prada dress with cobalt Giuseppe Zanotti's!
