Other celebs who have received the award are Rihanna,  Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, Prince, Pharell, and David Bowie.  Zendaya always slays the red carpet, making her hands down a fan favorite at every major event. Collaborating with everyone from YSL to Tommy Hilfiger on a gender-fluid collection and who can forget the tribute she paid to Beyoncé earlier this year at the 2021 BET Awards in the Versace gown.  Both Awar winners have proven that they are fearless, constantly keeping their fingers on the pulse of what’s hot, Yes, it’s about time the Europhoria actress and the bespoke designer receive their fashion flowers. “ There has to be something more than just a pretty dress. Zendaya’s always been my partner in going out to the event and telling a story without even opening her mouth. She puts everything into it.” Says her long-time stylist Law Roach to People Magazine. Zendaya does not have a singular “look.” “Her looks are so unexpected and she’s constantly evolving. She’s really talented in that way, there’s no one thing that defines Zendaya,” he told PEOPLE.  The CFDA will also honor Dapper Dan with the Geoffrey Beene lifetime achievement award, making him the first designer without a fashion show to ever win the honor. The 77-year-old Harlem, New York native thanked the streets of Harlem in an Instagram post in September when he heard he would be receiving the award.  “Isn’t it ironic how the fashion world says that Dapper Dan won the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award, without ever having a runway show?” he wrote. “The streets of Harlem have been my runway for 35 years. Isn’t that where the major luxury brands got their inspiration from? Maybe logo-mania is an illusion. Thank you Harlem, I love you!”  We at The Source congratulate them both on their well-deserved award.
