Zendaya received another recognition after making history for being the youngest actress to win Emmy’s Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series.
Zendaya is unstoppable and her influence has reached new heights because she just received an award from another country after her Emmy win. Italy named her as the first winner of the Green Carpet Fashion Awards for her fashion and contribution to sustainability.
Zendaya GCFA Award
Zendaya is the first Green Carpet Fashion Awards (GCFA) winner after hiring an all-Black crew for her InStyle photoshoot. Aside from the crew, she also included plus-size models in her catwalk show with Tommy Hilfiger in 2019, Forbes reported.
The award was organized by Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana, an Italian fashion body, and Eco-age, a sustainability consultancy. They wanted to celebrate those working towards a sustainable future both in front and behind the camera and Zendaya captured their attention.
“Zendaya has long championed inclusivity and diversity, she is a real trailblazer,” Livia Firth, founder of Ego-Age, told WWD.
The award-giving body also acknowledged Zendaya’s stance on global conversations including racism in America.
About the awards
Firth likened the event as a sign of rebirth especially that Italy was among the first countries significantly affected by COVID-19. The ceremony was produced virtually on Oct. 10 on YouTube
This year, the celebration was done virtually due to the pandemic. They opted to use holograms, augmented reality, and specials effects to heighten the experience. Meanwhile, Robert Downey Jr., the founder of the FootPrint Coalition, hosted the event.
“Creativity is the way out,” Andrew Morgan, director of the revealing 2015 fashion documentary The True Cost, said of the GCFAs. “This is a platform to broadcast change, to create real lasting change.”
Zendaya dumped for Kaia Gerber rumors
Meanwhile, there are rumors that Jacob Elordi dumped Zendaya for Kaia Gerber. Earlier this year, there were speculations that the Euphoria co-stars were dating. However, in the past weeks, he had been spotted out and about with Cindy Crawford’s daughter.
Some even went further and accused Elordi of cheating on Zendaya with the 19-year-old model. However, one should note that Elordi and Zendaya never confirmed their dating status. Elordi and Gerber’s sightings also did not mean to say that they are in a relationship.
Gossip Cop refuted the claims that the Kissing Booth star dumped the Spider-Man actress because if they were dating, their last sighting was in February. Meanwhile, he had been seen with Kaia after seven months after his last public outing with Zendaya.
If ever Zendaya and Elordi were dating, there was a seven-month gap that was long enough to end their romance if the dating rumors.
