Zendaya’s stylist Law Roach recently chatted with Footwear News about the strategy he relies on to keep the multi-hyphenate entertainer looking her best. He talked about their collaborative process and even mentioned what pair of shoes resulted in Zendaya having to be carried off of the red carpet at last year’s Radio Disney Music Awards.
“Christian Louboutin makes this pump — a single sole pump — it’s called the Hot Chick,” Law explains. “It has a pitch that’s straight up and six inches. Rumor has it that he said he did not design the shoes to be worn outside — they were made for the bedroom because they are super-sexy. She made me find them for her, and we decided she would wear them to the red carpet of the Radio Disney Music Awards last year. Literally eight minutes into the walk to the carpet, I was holding her up because her legs were buckling. She got to the carpet — and you’d never know — she did the carpet and she walked off, and we had to carry her a little bit until she took the shoe off. But she did it.”
Law and Zendaya recently collaborated on Zendaya’s debut shoe line, Daya by Zendaya. Something tells us her shoe line is much more comfortable than the near fatal footwear she once sported on the red carpet.
