Law Roach Says It Was ‘Tough’ For Zendaya Following His Retirement Announcement

Fashion stylist Law Roach shared his star client’s reaction, Zendaya, when he announced his retirement from the world of styling.

During a recent interview, the respected 44-year-old fashion stylist revealed that he hadn’t spoken with his close friend, actress Zendaya, before he took to Instagram to announce his retirement. In fact, Law Roach shared that the “Euphoria” star immediately called him when the news hit.


According to reports, the beloved stylist explained that he serves as part of a “core” four-person team supporting the Emmy-winning actress. Law Roach also said that his decision was “tough for her.” He continued,

“She calls [and] she said, ‘Girl, I thought we’d make big decisions together.’ She, of course, supported me. She’s like, ‘Do you need me to send you on a vacation? Tell me what you’re going through.’ And I, you know, talk to her about just being unhappy for a really long time and still grieving the death of my nephew… And she was like, ‘Whatever you need, whatever you need.’”

Law went into further detail about his decision to retire and reportedly revealed that he was deeply “unhappy” for weeks leading to his announcement. He admitted,

“From the outside looking at our world, it’s like, it’s perfect, right? But it’s made to look perfect. That’s the point. Because the perfection that we give is our way of entertaining everybody who’s paying attention to us. But that’s what it is, it’s entertainment. And over the last, maybe two or three weeks, I realized f**k, I’m miserable.”

While speaking of his personal life, the fashion designer shared that he hasn’t been in a romantic relationship in the near decade he’s been working on his career and hasn’t been able to connect with his friends who “don’t live the same type of lifestyle.” Law added,

“And my business is so big that it’s all I do, it’s all I have. I’ve been miserable and unhappy for a long time. And I’ve been pretending to be perfect.”

As previously reported, Law – who’s best known for his work with Zendaya and has also dressed Megan Thee Stallion, Kerry Washington, Celine Dion, Ariana Grande, Priyanka Chopra, Lindsay Lohan and more – took to Instagram on Mar. 14 and announced he is retiring.

Law posted a photo of the word “retired” and wrote,

“My Cup is empty….. thank you to everyone who’ve supported me and my career over the years. Every person that trusted me with their image, I’m so grateful for you all.”

The stylist then said the politics of the fashion industry is the driving force behind his decision to quit.

“If this business was just about the clothes I would do it for the rest of my life but unfortunately it’s not! The politics , the lies and false narratives finally got me! You win … I’m out.”
