Madonna, Beyonce and Cher. Three famous faces who simply go by one name and are as famous for their red carpet prowess as their body of work.

And, Zendaya is no exception.

The American actress and singer, who celebrates her 26th birthday on Thursday, has had plenty of time to perfect her aesthetic, enjoying 12 years in the business.

The Euphoria and Dune star, born Zendaya Coleman, started out in the Disney Channel sitcom Shake It Up, which started in 2010.

Going on to compete in Dancing with the Stars and front sitcom KC Undercover, the actress made the leap to the silver screen in 2017's Spider-Man: Homecoming and has since starred in Spider-Man: Far from Home and Spider-Man: No Way Home opposite Tom Holland.

As her career has progressed, so, too, has her style.

Zendaya, who won a Primetime Emmy Award for her performance in the HBO drama Euphoria, has morphed from Disney star to a leading lady, becoming one of the red carpet's best dressers in the process.

Never afraid to sport a bold print, avant-garde silhouette or vibrant hues, the actress can always be relied on to add a little sparkle to any party, premiere or awards ceremony, turning to labels such as Versace, Valentino and Tom Ford.

With her statement gowns, she often wears glittering jewellery, often by Bulgari, who she recently starred in a new campaign with, opposite Anne Hathaway and Priyanka Chopra Jonas.

Here, we take a look at how Zendaya's style has evolved throughout her time in the spotlight.
