The 2022 Oscars are this weekend, which means before the big shindig Sunday night, approximately all of Hollywood is living it up at a bunch of pre-award shows and luncheons, like Essence magazine’s super fabulous Black Women in Hollywood event, which Cosmo’s red carpet reporter Brandi Fowler attended yesterday.
So many of your favorite celebs were in attendance, from Storm Reid to Serena Williams to Amber Riley, and so! many! more! While on the carpet, Brandi spoke with celebrity stylist Law Roach, who has been styling Zendaya for years. He said the best part about their relationship is that fashion is actually “secondary” to it.
“We’ve been together for so long,” Law told Brandi. “Fashion is secondary to our love for each other as people and as family. That’s my sister, you know what I mean? So that’s, what’s important to us—that we continue to nourish our relationship as brother and sister.”
When it comes to what the pair is planning next for Zendaya’s look, it’s just “wherever they end up,” Law said, noting that the process “is not easy.” But so much of Law’s inspiration comes from everyday women doing regular things, so it’s bound to be fantastic.
“Women in the airport, walking down the street—just women,” he said when asked where he draws his inspo. “I’m so inspired by women. I think it’s such an art form, what you guys get up and do every day to be who you are. I just love it. It’s just so inspiring to me.”
Law also talked through how he decides to work with a new client. “We have to see if there’s an energy—if the energies match first, you know?” he told Brandi. “I’m blessed to be at a point in my career where I don’t have to say yes to everything. So if it feels good to me, then I’ll do it. If it doesn’t feel good, I’m not doing it.”
Essence‘s annual luncheon, now in its 15th year, was born “as a spotlight for achievements on screen and a celebration of female voices expanding and transforming the art of storytelling.”
Every year, four Black women are honored and recognized for their tireless efforts and contributions to the TV and movie industry. This year, the honorees were Quinta Brunson, Chanté Williams, Aunjanue Ellis, and Nia Long.
