The 'Dune' star and Emmy winner will be officially named Fashion Icon by the Council of Fashion Designers of America in November

At 25, Zendaya is at the top of her game. The youngest person to win a Best Drama Actress Emmy for her searing performance in HBO's Euphoria, Zendaya is not only the one of the most in-demand Hollywood actresses, she is also a sartorial star in her own right, judging by her consistently stunning red carpet appearances, from the Oscars to the recent Dune premiere. Bulgari and Valentino have also appointed her as their brand ambassador. To top it off, she's dating Spider-Man himself, Tom Holland, and plays Mary Jane to his Peter Parker in the movies. 

On November 10, Zendaya will receive the CFDA Award for Fashion Icon, the youngest honouree yet. Past winners include Rihanna, Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez and Prince. Here's a look at her rapid ascent to bona fide style queen in the last year.
