Biography

Celebrity stylist Law Roach is frequently credited with Celine Dion ’s triumphant fashion transformation and has worked with some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry, including Ariana Grande, Zendaya, Monica Brown, Brandy and Jessie J.

Roach started his career at his now-defunct Deliciously Vintage boutique in Chicago’s Pilsen neighbourhood. His styling debut happened by chance when Kanye West walked into the store in 2009 and brought the attention of paparazzi and industry insiders from around the world.

An outsider to the fashion system and a self-proclaimed “image architect,” Roach moved to Los Angeles and was introduced to Zendaya, who became his first major client. Roach is now the co-creative director of her clothing and shoe line Daya by Zendaya.

In 2016, Roach was announced as one of the judges for cycle 23 of America’s Next Top Model, alongside Ashley Graham , Rita Ora and Drew Elliott . The following year, he then partnered with Celine Dion to style her for Couture Week in Paris and became the first African American stylist to cover the annual The Hollywood Reporter’s Stylist & Stars issue. Dion and Zendaya joined Roach for the cover.

Despite creating multiple looks over the years for the Met Gala, Roach attended the event in 2019 for the first time with Zendaya, accompanying the actress fairy godfather-style as he brandished a wand that lit up her Cinderella-themed  Tommy Hilfiger dress on the red carpet.
