If you've watched a single episode of HBO's hit show Euphoria, and seen Zendaya in action as drug-addicted teenager Rue, you won't be at all surprised to hear that the 24-year-old actress just scooped the award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series at the 2020 Emmy Awards.

It was a very different event compared to previous years thanks to social distancing measures, with celebrities presenting and receiving awards from the comfort of their own homes. Zendaya received her award surrounded by family and friends, but that didn't stop her from stealing the show with some incredible fashion and beauty looks.

She accepted her award with a gorgeous shaggy up-do, showing off her natural curls with a heavy fringe gently parted and skimming her made-up eyes. But she couldn't have looked any more different from a previous appearance...

When the actress presented an award earlier in the show, she wore her hair in a slicked-back bun with a side parting - a look we can only assume required a lot of wet-look gel and hairspray. So when she returned to the screen with fluffy, piled-high tendrils, we were a little taken aback.

It's unclear who was responsible for the jaw-dropping transformation, or whether or not there were some pre-prepared hair pieces involved, but either way, hats off to Zendaya and her team for going all out for what was essentially a night in on the sofa... 🙌🏻
