Princess Beatrice Is Leading the Way for Recycled Fashion

Despite the fact that lockdown squashed her extravagant wedding plans, Princess Beatrice finally married the man of her dreams in July 2020. This may not have been the day that she had hoped for, but it was clear to see that she was over the moon to finally call Edoardo Mozzi her husband – and she looked absolutely stunning on her big day. What most people haven’t realized, though, is the fact that the Princess officially became the Queen of recycled fashion on the day that she tied the knot.

Looking Her Best

Every bride wants to look her best on her wedding day, and there’s no doubt about the fact that Princess Beatrice stunned everyone with her bridal look. She looked absolutely immaculate as she posed for photos with her new husband, and while most people were focused on the love between the newlywed couple, there were others who couldn’t quite take their eyes off her dress and her accessories. This was not just because they were beautiful, but also because they looked pretty familiar…

Recycling Her Wardrobe

In a world where fast fashion and the fashion world are coming under fire for their environmental impact, it seems as though everyday people aren’t the only ones making sustainable changes. For her wedding day, Princess Beatrice decided to ask her grandmother – the Queen – whether she could wear one of her old dresses. While she made it her own by adjusting the hemline and adding some sleeves, that’s exactly what she did. She didn’t buy a new dress, and she didn’t ask a famous designer to make something new for her. However, it didn’t end there. According to reports, Beatrice also borrowed one of her grandmother’s tiaras and wore shoes that she has had in her closet for years and worn countless times in the past.

How amazing is that? Hopefully, Beatrice can inspire more people to recycle their wardrobes.

Zendaya Sports Custom Roberto Cavalli Look with a Creative Spider-Man Reference

Popular youth style icon Zendaya has created another mic-drop fashion moment in a recent award ceremony. While attending the 2021 Ballon d’Or Ceremony, the 25 years old actress appeared on the red carpet in a vintage Roberto Cavalli look. The gorgeous ensemble from the label’s Fall 2020 collection was completed by an amazing modification, as an ode to Zendaya’s upcoming Marvel movie.

The Custom Look

An incredible nod to the hugely anticipated upcoming Spider-Man movie, the formfitting black crepe de chine gown was given a creative spin by Fausto Puglisi, the creative director of Roberto Cavalli. The open back of the dress featured a striking golden spine detailing, instantly recognizable as the similar structure of the metal arms of the movie villain Doc Ock. The detailing was fitted with the dress with golden micro chains. She paired the look with a neat hair up-do, black kohl eyes, nude lips, and oversized gold hoop earrings from Jennifer Fisher. Trademarked image architect Law Roach, who is also Zendaya’s longtime fashion stylist, shaped her entire look.

The Creative Spin

The third installment of the rebooted Spider-Man series is famously bringing back a few of the classic villains from the series with the original cast. Doctor Octopus, commonly known as Doc Ock is one of them, who has a distinct feature of metal arms protruding from his back. It was not difficult for the Marvel flick fans to point out the striking similarity between the spinal detailing of Zendaya’s dress and the spinal structure of Doc Ock’s metal arms. Esteemed actor Alfred Molina is reprising the role of Doc Ock in the upcoming movie Spider-Man: No Way Home, hitting theaters on December 17. Starring Tom Holland in the titular role, the movie will feature Zendaya in the female lead, along with several other anticipated original casts from the previous two Spider-Man series.

The Referencing Styles

This custom Roberto Cavalli look is not the first film-centric creation of Zendaya and her stylist, as giving a nod to her film roles through bespoke red carpet looks, has been a regular practice for the duo. During the press tour of Timothee Chalamet’s Dune, Roach styled Zendaya in a formfitting beige-toned custom Balmain dress at the Venice Film Festival, creatively referencing the film’s sand dunes. At the film’s London Premiere, the youngest CFDA Fashion Icon awardee actress appeared in a warrior-inspired custom-made asymmetrical dress by Rick Owens, giving a nod to the central sci-fi theme of Dune. As the press tour for Spider-Man: No Way Home is about to begin soon, anticipations are mounted on Zendaya presenting several more standout red-carpet fashion looks, with the underlined reference of the movie.
