Zendaya showed up in pyjamas at last night’s Teen Choice Awards, where she outshone her peers.
Pyjamas broke out of the bedroom some time ago, as brands like Olivia von Halle, For Restless Sleepers and Pour Les Femmes propelled them into the fashion arena as louche daywear.
The appetite for patterned wears remains insatiable in the celebrity sphere, as Zendaya, the Hadid sisters and Harley Viera Newton have brought pyjamas back into the spotlight as viable streetwear and red-carpet wear.
At the awards show, the star and activist gave an impassioned speech after winning for Choice Summer Movie Actress.
“With all the injustice and the hatred and everything that is happening not only in the world, but in our country right now, I need all you young people, I need all you guys to be educated, I need you to listen, I need you to pay attention,” she said.
Her words said, “Stand up for what you believe in.” Her clothes said, “Sit down on the edge of the bed, pull your duvet back, swing your legs into bed, lie down, go to sleep, shh, you’re sleeping, like a little sleepy baby, so chic and yet so tired.”
