The Man Behind Your Favorite Celebrity Looks–Law Roach!

You’ve probably been left speechless over stylish fashion looks from Zendaya, Ariana Grande, Megan The Stallion, or Celine Dion, and chances are it’s because Law Roach styled it. In honor of Law Roach’s recent retirement announcement from styling, we’re here to share the journey of the mastermind behind many of the most talked about looks over the past decade.

Fashion mogul Law Roach is known best for his influential styling talents, most notably the reinvention of Zendaya and Celine Dion’s style. The trademarked “Image Architect” was born and raised in Chicago and garnered a love for the transformative power of fashion through watching his mother and grandmother style their own clothing. Law hustled his way into the fashion world, never interning or assisting anyone, but built a successful name by learning how to play the game himself. He officially began his journey into the fashion world by curating vintage pieces for his Chicago based boutique Deliciously Vintage. In 2009, a visit to the store from Kanye West that naturally brought along paparazzi would place Law on the radar, bringing a swarm of attention and new clients his way.

A few years later, his relationship with Zendaya formed at the onset of her breakout Disney role on Shake It Up. Their long standing partnership helped Zendaya achieve one of the best transitions we’ve ever seen from childhood stardom to head turning womanhood. As they grew together, Law pioneered viral social media fashion moments by only styling Zendaya in vintage pieces which showcased how she herself elevated the clothes. Along with this tactic, he was all about storytelling and focusing on the small details, like hair and makeup, down to the emotions on her face. Roach single-handley forced the media to pay attention to the iconic star we know and love today, and their chemistry is undeniable.

As he continued to grow, Roach created a business for himself that spanned beyond red carpets. He’s done everything from judging two reality competition television series, Legendary and America’s Next Top Model, to collaborating on a collection with high fashion brands like Herve Leger and even making a debut appearance as a model for Hugo Boss’ Spring 2023 collection.

Roach is currently setting out on new ventures in the fashion industry and leaving personal styling behind. He has aspirations of one day becoming a creative director of a fashion house, and we have no doubt that it’s soon to happen. Let’s revel in some of his most iconic looks to date while we anxiously wait for what’s to come from our favorite fashion guru.
