If there’s one thing that we all know, it’s that Zendaya never ceases to impress on the red carpet, whether she’s wearing a gown to a premiere or just being her unapologetic self on a day off. This week, the CFDA fashion icon and award-winning actor lived up to our expectations once again at the Euphoria premiere. Zendaya stole the show when she arrived wearing a vintage strapless black and white striped Valentino dress that paid tribute to iconic ’90s supermodel Linda Evangelista. To put it simply, she made red carpet history.

Not too long after, Her Majesty Queen Rania was also seen making a sartorial statement this week. Known for her modest, yet always fashion-forward ensembles, the Queen stepped out in a traditional Jordanian keffiyeh in order to meet the country’s youth on January 11.  Because what better way to show one’s appreciation for their country than by donning its traditional attire with pride?

On the other side of the globe, another lady from the royal family was also seen having her share of fun playing dress up. The Duchess of Cambridge commissioned Alexander McQueen’s Sarah Burton to make three custom ballgowns for her 40th birthday portraits. The pictures captured by Paolo Roversi showed a beaming Kate Middleton painting a picture of elegance in her dreamy McQueen creations.

What better way to wrap up this week’s hottest Instagram posts than with a look back at its biggest fashion launches? The week kicked off with the Yeezy Gap collection engineered by Balenciaga. ICYMI, rapper and designer Kanye West is joining forces with the creative director of Balenciaga (Demna Gvasalia) to work on a special project at Gap that aims “to create utilitarian fashion for all.”

Another exciting venture that caught our eye was the playful Balmain x Barbie collaboration, followed by Rami Kadi‘s upcoming line titled ‘Lucid Algorithms’, which marks the designer’s first human-computer collaboration. Scroll for a closer look at all the action that went down over the past seven days.
