Zendaya was one of five honorees at this year’s 2020 Green Carpet Fashion Awards!
The 24-year-old actress and fashionista received the Visionary award at the ceremony, which recognizes trailblazers in the industry who have been at the forefront of fashion and lead the way in important issues such as sustainability, equality and diversity.
“I just want to say thank you, first and foremost, to Bethann [Hardison], you are an icon and a true trailblazer in this fashion industry, and I am grateful for all that you are and all that you continue to do. You inspire me every day,” Zendaya said in her acceptance speech.
“This is an incredible honor. It means the world to me. I think fashion has always truly lived in my heart ever since I was very, very young,” she continued. “I love clothes and I think it’s so much more than just clothes. I think it’s an art, it’s emotion, it’s feeling, and to me, through clothes I’ve been able to find myself and be more confident in myself as a young woman growing into my womanhood.”
“Also throughout my career, I’ve had the privilege of being able to showcase other and different types of beauties through the work that I get to do, and being in more positions of power, more creative positions,” Zendaya said. “I hope to continue to be able to do that until this industry really does reflect the beauty that I get to see every day. So, thank you so much. I’m so excited for the future of this industry and all the beautiful things that we have yet still to accomplish. Thank you.”
