Considering David Bowie passed away just under a month ago, it’s hard not to feel how heavily the spirit of the late singer hangs over tonight’s Grammy awards show. Aside from the tribute Lady Gaga is planning to perform in his honor, Bowie’s presence can also be felt on the red carpet where Zendaya channeled a little Ziggy Stardust, debuting a full-blown blonde mullet on the red carpet.
There’s never been any doubt that Zendaya is a style chameleon, constantly changing up her look to suit her mood and the occasion. So of course, she once again went with her gut for her look at tonight’s Grammys, telling People that she was inspired by past eras, though not Bowie specifically, and that she loves the powerful image of a woman in a suit. While the star may not have been intentionally paying homage to the legendary musician, pairing her blonde “business in the front, party in the back” strands (so very Labyrinth) with a very masculine, sharply tailored double-breasted Dsquared2 suit (another Bowie staple) is undoubtedly something of which Bowie would have approved.

And as if her hair and outfit weren’t buzzy enough, the newly minted CoverGirl also did her own makeup for the big night, opting for something, “a bit more natural to balance out [her menswear] look.” For eyes, Zendaya wanted to keep “the look soft, but with major lashes,” using CoverGirl’s truNAKED eyeshadow palette, a pop of truBLEND blush, and a subtle touch of color on the lips with Colorlicious Oh Sugar! in Caramel.
