I mentioned this last Friday in my Outfit of the Week post for Jennifer Coolidge – that the Best Actress in a Drama series SAG award was between her and Zendaya. In the end, the SAG went to Jennifer Coolidge who was crying and laughing through her acceptance speech while recounting the story of her dad lying to get her out of class in the first grade which became a formative experience in her life:

As I wrote last week, Jennifer has been working a long time. The SAG membership understands this storyline. Much of the SAG membership has probably worked alongside her. So to see what she’s done with this role in The White Lotus, I mean at this point it’s probably everyone’s dream for Mike White to write a character for them the way he did for her. Jennifer killed all the gays in The White Lotus, but the gays love her more than ever.
The gays were thrilled all weekend, actually, because their faves were winning. Not only did Jennifer Coolidge extend her award season streak but Zendaya returned to the red carpet, delivering not just one but FOUR bomb ass looks.
Like I said, we’ve been waiting for this. Zendaya has been quiet for a while. And she and Law Roach knew we were waiting. He teased it ahead of the NAACP Image Awards. Because he knows the impact she has whenever she shows up:
Zendaya arrived at the NAACP event on Saturday in vintage Versace – and as she said herself, it was a SERVE.
She is really feeling that hair right now. As she should. This bob is amazing on her. But then she changed – this time vintage Prada, repurposed. Originally, back in 2023, it was pants. Now…it’s Zendaya. All Zendaya:
The next night for the SAGs, it was pink Valentino on the carpet.
Ridiculous. Operating at this style level is ridiculous. The gown, the rosettes, the Bulgari jewels, and that makeup! Those eyes! The bottom lashes! She is bananas. Also I love this shot of Law in the background in his hood and jacket, like security… but for style, not safety.
He’s there making sure every angle is perfect. That’s the level of commitment he puts into his looks. And we are still not done because inside the SAGs it was Armani Privé.
Is everyone well fed now? Z and Law gave us a feast right? It was so much that I wonder if that’s because she’s going underground again and they wanted to make sure there was enough to get us through the next drought.
