Now-former celebrity stylist Law Roach has ended the Zendaya rumors that were circulating after he announced his retirement on Tuesday.
In a series of tweets, Roach clarified his relationship with Emmy-winner Euphoria, who has been one of his most famous and loyal customers for years. Some have speculated online that the dynamic fashion duo had a falling out that led to Roach stepping away from celebrity styling.
Not true, he says.
“So you guys really think I’m breaking up with Z… we’re forever!” Roach tweeted On Wednesday.
“She’s my little sister and it’s real love, not fake industrial love,” he added follow up tweet.
On Tuesday, Roach stunned the fashion world by announcing via Instagram that he had retired as a celebrity stylist. Over the course of nearly a decade, Roach has worked with some of Hollywood’s biggest names, including Ariana Grande, Kerry Washington, Hunter Schafer, Megan Thee Stallion, Priyanka Chopra, Celine Dion, Keke Palmer, and of course Zendaya – whom he began styling when she did 13 years old and helped transform herself into red carpet royalty.
“My trophy is empty…thanks to everyone who has supported me and my career over the years,” Roach said Tuesday.
“Every person who has entrusted me with their picture, I am so grateful to you all. If this business was only about clothes I would do it for the rest of my life, but alas it isn’t! The politics, lies and false narratives finally got me! You win…I’m out.”
In an interview with Vogue published Wednesday, Roach detailed his decision to leave the celebrity stylist industry and made it clear that he will not be “retiring from fashion.” On the contrary, Roach just started his next chapter with flair by making his modeling debut at Wednesday’s Boss runway show in Miami.
“I love fashion. I love the shops and I love being creative,” Roach told Vogue. “What I’m withdrawing from is the celebrity styling part of it: being in the service and serving other people. That is it from which I withdraw, yes.”
Since posting his farewell statement on Instagram, Roach has received an “overwhelming” amount of love and support from his longtime collaborators, friends and colleagues. While working as a celebrity stylist, Roach tended to put his clients ahead of his “own health and happiness,” he told Vogue.
“I was riding in the car and I made a decision,” he continued.
“I said, ‘You know what, I’ve done everything I wanted to do in this career. I’ve gotten all the awards, the awards, I’ve changed people’s lives… And I just feel like I’ve had enough.” … So the Instagram post wasn’t a PR stunt. It was really me who gave me the grace to say, It’s okay. You can do something else.”
