Grammys 2016: Zendaya Gives Us Major David Bowie Vibes in Her Mullet and Suit

02/15/2016 at 07:23 PM ET

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.

Making a mullet look chic and doing her own award show makeup. Is there anything Zendaya can’t do?

Hmm, I think she’s giving off Nick Rhodes vibes instead.

This girl is a fashion goddess

Looks like she smells like lesbianism and banking.

No Bowie vibe here.

She looks like David Bowie in the same way that Whoopi Goldberg does, in other words, not at all. I think Francine nailed it –I see Nick Rhodes or Leif Garrett if his teeny bopper persona had lasted into the 80s, but Bowie? That’s just ridonkulous.

Why is People so obsessed with this girl? She is a nobody who likes controversy. Stop giving her attention. Please.

Kim on

Yeah, Bowie did not come to mind when I saw this talentless chick with the giant chip on her shoulder resurface again. She needs to go away!

Which Olsen twin is she?
