A blessed union

As creative director of Valentino, Pierpaolo Piccioli has seen a fair few iconic faces slip into his creations across the course of the last few years. 

From FKA twigs performing at his AW20 menswear show in an ethereal Haute Couture gown, to Dua Lipa in a glittering silver number on The Graham Norton show just last week, the list of those repping the label continues to grow. 

Joining the fold as the latest face of the storied Italian house is none other than Zendaya. Seen in a series of stripped-back images, the Euphoria star explains she is “honoured to have been chosen as the face of Valentino,” and “so excited to begin this amazing collaboration with Pierpaolo and the entire Valentino family.” 

Piccioli, meanwhile, explains Zendaya was chosen for the role because “she is a powerful and fierce young woman that uses her talent and work to express herself, her values, and her generation as well.” 

In other Zendaya news, the trailer for a Euphoria Christmas special dropped earlier this week and we’re extremely ready for it. Head here to watch.
