It’s no secret that Zendaya made history by being the youngest winner of Outstanding Leading Actress in a Drama Series at the Emmys! That being said, many were happy and excited for her, showering the 24-year-old talented actress with love and congratulatory messages, and one of them is none other than Drake!
As you know, the trophy came for her amazing role as Rue Bennett on HBO’s Euphoria.
All the rapper had to do was celebrate Zendaya and headed over to his IG Stories to share a picture of her he captured while accepting her Emmy. Next to it he wrote: ‘@Zendaya @euphoria, it was a lock … Congratulations.
In addition to being the youngest recipient of an Emmy in this category, Zendaya is also the second black woman to receive it after Viola Davis received it in 2015 for her iconic role “How To Get Away with Murder”.
Zendaya went to her own platform to acknowledge the victory as well and wrote, “Still on cloud nine… so grateful, speechless, to all of my friends and family who have texted / tweeted / called, I promise I will join I’ll report to you tomorrow when I’ve wrapped my night around this night, until then … I’ll go to sleep and make sure this isn’t a dream. ‘
Other names aside from Drake, who made love to Zendaya after her big win, include her Euphoria co-stars Hunter Schafer, Storm Reid and Barbie Ferreira.
And as if her historic win wasn’t enough to get her a lot of attention at the Emmys, Zendaya managed to stand out for her amazing fashion too!
The actress rocked two different looks during the awards show, one she wore during the presentation and another when she received the award herself!
The first was a stunning purple and black dress paired with a purple jewel necklace.
For the second look and the one that went pretty much viral, she wore a custom-made black skirt by Giorgio Armani Privé with pink polka dots, which she paired with a gorgeous bandeau completely covered in pearls and crystals.
