The stylist to the stars, Law Roach's clientele includes Celine Dion, Zendaya, Ariana Grande, Hailee Steinfeld, Halsey, Hunter Schafer, Kerry Washington, Addison Rae, Priyanka Chopra, Anya Taylor-Joy, and more. You may know him better as the judge on the HBO Max show "Legendary."

On March 14, 2023, Roach announced his sudden retirement. "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," he wrote on Instagram shocking both the entertainment and fashion world, alike.

While you may not recognize this fashion legend and icon by name, we are sure that you must have seen at least some of his looks that went down as canon in fashion history. While waiting for further explanations and the reason behind this heartbreaking decision, we put together a collection of Law Roach's best red carpet looks.

Hunter Schafer's feather top moment at the 2023 Vanity Fair Oscar after-party

Hunter Schafer is not a stranger to making fashion headlines and she has no plans to change. In 2023, the Queer icon has taken the internet by rage with her Vanity Fair Oscar Party appearance. The "Euphoria" star hit the red carpet looking like an angel in an ethereal Ann Demeulemeester fall/winter 2023 look (via Elle). The look featured a feather-shaped bandeau paired with a silk skirt draped from her hips to the floor. Her statement blond tresses were styled in mermaid curls and parted in the middle with a minimal makeup look highlighting her sharp features and completing the ensemble.

Law Roach, the man behind Schafer's celestial cosplay took to Instagram to share his work with a picture of the look captioned: "And then there was Hunter..." tagging the actor, brand, and designer along with his personal hashtag #fLAWless. The post saw encouraging replies from fans and celebs, including Schafer's "Euphoria" co-star and friend, and one of Roach's most famous clients, Zendaya, commenting: "STUNNING" with a string of heart-eye emojis and singer Katy Perry saying: "ATE."

Megan Thee Stallion's return to the red carpet at the 2023 Vanity Fair Oscar after-party

Another celeb who was styled by Law Roach and slayed in the 2023 Vanity Fair Oscar Party was Megan Thee Stallion. The "Hot Girl Summer" singer hit the red carpet in a shimmery, custom black Bach Mai strapless gown featuring a pearlish black pattern with a lace-bustier inset and trumpet hem. The look was complemented with Gismondi 1754 diamonds, including a choker necklace, chandelier earrings, and a statement ring. The look was completed with her perfect, natural curls, winged eyeliner, glossy lips, and a long black manicure (via People).

It is worth noting that this was the rapper's first red carpet appearance since her win in the shooting case against Tory Lanez in December 2022. Roach proudly shared the look on Instagram with the caption: "And just like that she's back....call her no waist Meg" and a string of red heart emojis. The picture was liked by Zendaya, Hailee Steinfeld, and Katy Perry and saw a huge influx of positive comments from Stallion's fans who were elated to have her back on the red carpet.

Priyanka Chopra's dove gown look at a 2022 Bulgari event

Be it a Bollywood event or a Hollywood red carpet, you can rest assured that Priyanka Chopra Jonas will bring her fashion A-game to it. In 2022, she made headlines with her contrasting black-and-white-color-blocked look at a Bulgari event in Paris. The "Quantico" star who is also an ambassador of the brand was spotted in a Robert Wun gown featuring extravagant asymmetric white truffles layered over a black fitted dress with a plunging neckline. 

Styled by Law Roach, the "White Tiger" actor completed the look that Vogue termed an "ethereal contrast gown where fashion collided with futurism" with emerald Bulgari jewelry, including a statement necklace and earrings. In a picture liked by supermodel Naomi Campbell and actors Jameela Jamil and Zendaya, Roach shared pictures of himself with Chopra on Instagram captioning: "Still thinking about this... 'Eden the Garden of Wonders' @bulgari."

Halsey's burgundy moment at the 2022 Grammys

Halsey had stayed away from the Grammy's red carpet for five years since 2017, before being the stunning showstopper at the 2022 Grammy Awards. Styled by Law Roach, Halsey was spotted in a vintage black and burgundy strapless Pressiat gown paired with a vintage Pierre Cardin black hat from the stylist's personal collection. The star even matched their hair to their outfit by dying it a burgundy ombre and carefully tucking it under the hat and revealing just enough to tease fans. 

The "Without Me" singer's gorgeous look was completed with diamonds from Tiffany & Co., including, a minimalist necklace, earrings, a bracelet, winged eyes, and burgundy lips. Roach proudly shared pictures of the musician from the event with details about the look and called Halsey his "Pretty Little RockStar" (via Instagram).

"The last time I attended the Grammys was 2017 and it was 3 days after I had my first Endometriosis surgery. I walked the carpet with my stitches still in. As luck would have it, I'm attending tomorrow for the first time in years and I had surgery again (you guessed it) 3 days ago," Halsey revealed on Instagram hours before the appearance sharing their excitement and asking folks to be "gentle."

Zendaya and Tom Holland at the 2021 Spider-Man: No Way Home premier

Zendaya has been Law Roach's loyal client for years and that is definitely one of the reasons why Queen Z doesn't disappoint us with her red-carpet looks. In 2021, power-couple Zendaya and Tom Holland attended the LA premiere of "Spider-Man: No Way Home" in custom looks styled by Roach. 

The "Euphoria" star was on-theme in a custom Valentino spider web gown adorned with ornate black beads, a deep thigh slit, and a plunging neckline — while Spider-Man opted for a custom Prada suit. To complete the look, Zendaya opted for butt-length braids, black Louboutin pointy-toe pumps, and Bulgari diamond drop earrings. She topped it all off with black, blue, and white cat eyes and nude lips. Following her footsteps, Tom Holland also opted for a pair of Louboutin shoes (via Glamour).

Like always, Law Roach proudly celebrated the duo by sharing their look on Instagram and wrote: "To my Dynamic Duo..... thank you for your love, patience and grace with helping me manage these last couple weeks." He also apologized for not being able to celebrate with them: "Sorry I didn't get to celebrate with y'all last nite! So proud of you both."

Anya Taylor-Joy vintage Barbie cosplay at the 2021 Venice International Film Festival

Anya Taylor-Joy is another one of Law Roach's stars who seldom fails to deliver. While all three of her looks from the 2021 Venice International Film Festival were gorgeous and did get the tinsel town talking, the Dior Haute Couture pink look she was spotted in attending the premiere of her film "Last Night in Soho" was an outright showstopper. The satin silk dress and matching embroidered beret, paired with Dior shoes, and accessorized with Tiffany & Co. jewelry along with the light blonde curls, screamed vintage Barbie (via Elle).

The man behind the moment, Law Roach seems proud of his creation as he took to Instagram to share a video of the actor in the look styled by him, captioning: "Pretty in Pink... @anyataylorjoy wearing @dior Haute Couture by @mariagraziachiuri and the sparkle by @tiffanyandco #fLAWless." This look has been credited as one of the actor's best fashion moments.

Jaime Xie's vintage look from the 2021 Venice International Film Festival

Anya Taylor-Joy wasn't the only Law Roach star who served in the 2021 Venice International Film Festival. The "Bling Empire" star was also the talk of the town for her red-carpet look. Styled by Roach, Xie was spotted in a stunning vintage Roberto Cavalli spring/summer 2005 look, paired with a pair of strappy heels, a neat bun, and subtle, gold jewelry. According to Tatler's exclusive coverage of the model's looks from the festival, this look paired with Bulgari jewelry "held its own against the likes of Zendaya, Timothée Chalamet, and Adriana Lima at the Dune premiere ."

Law Roach shared the pictures from the red carpet moment along with the original pictures from the 2005 runaway show and called Jaime Xie his "muse" for vintage pieces. "My newest muse.....The Queen of Archive The undisputed Princess of Vintage @jaimexie wearing @roberto_cavalli SS2005 @stuartweitzman and @bulgari Jewels #styledbyLAW #fLAWless," Roach wrote on Instagram.

Hunter Schafer's sci-fi avatar at the 2021 Met Gala

While Law Roach styled a number of celebs including, Chance The Rapper and Addison Rae for the 2021 Met Gala which was themed "In America: A Lexicon of Fashion," the ultimate show-stopper was none other than trans activist and icon, Hunter Schafer. In a futuristic look, the "Euphoria" star showed up to The Met in a metallic silver halter top and column skirt by Prada. 

Adding to the look were classy, strappy heels, over-the-top nail art, and a matching detailed headpiece. She topped it all off with white contact lenses, channeling the sci-fi goddess avatar she was born to rock. "She's got an anime, sci-fi heart in her core — she's that kind of person," Schafer's makeup artist Sandy Ganzer told Vanity Fair when commenting on the look. According to Roach's revelation via Instagram, the custom set was inspired by the brand's FW99 collection.

Ariana Grande's princess moment at the 2020 Grammys

You don't need us to say that Ariana Grande's 2020 Grammys red carpet look was iconic. The stunning three-tiered blue-grey Giambattista Valli ball gown that the "thank u, next" singer chose for the event is probably one of the most popular Law Roach looks. According to E! News, the actor and singer's choice was made easy when Roach "burst into tears" when she tried the dress on. While Valli is not known for making custom dresses, the one he made for Grande was around 20 feet in diameter which she topped off with her signature ponytail and cat eyes.

The singer who was then nominated for five award categories including best pop solo performance, best pop duo/group performance, record of the year, album of the year, and best pop vocal album, opted for Louboutin shoes with a tight grip on the bottom to save herself from slipping. It seems like Roach was also very happy with his work when he took to Instagram to share the look calling Grande: "The princess."

Demi Lovato's 2020 Grammy performance

Demi Lovato's 2020 Grammy Awards performance saw two iconic creations of art — the singer's beautiful piano rendition of her song "Anyone" and the gorgeous white Christian Siriano gown she chose to wear while singing it. Styled by Law Roach, Lovato's 2020 Grammy Awards performance look was nothing short of breathtaking.

Created in sparkling sequins, the long sleeve, deep-neck Christian Siriano outfit had a blazer-like bodice, a billowing skirt, and a studded corset made in leather by Zana Bayne (via Refinery29). She completed the look with Lesilla shoes and a handful of diamond jewelry including two diamond rings and a pair of white gold earrings embellished with diamonds. The final look along with her beautiful black hair left open made her look like nothing short of a celestial being.

"#Demi Lovato I Love you and love creating for you!!!" said Siriano on Twitter posting stills from the heart-touching performance. Law Roach was out of words for this look as he posted a picture of Lovato on Instagram captioning: "Angel."

Kerry Washington's Egyptian look at the 2020 Vanity Fair Oscar after-party

Kerry Washington appeared for the 2020 Vanity Oscar Party looking like an Egyptian queen from history textbooks. Styled by Law Roach, she was spotted in a Zuhair Murad shiny crop top and skirt set embellished with beads and sequins. The outfit paired with low-key neutral makeup and a simple hairstyle was nothing short of iconic. According to the "Scandal" star's hairstylist, Takisha Sturdivant-Drew, this minimal look was intentional as the goal was to bring the focus to her clothes. "I kept her hairstyle simple, modern, and of course with a little edge to it," Sturdivant-Drew told Allure.

In an Instagram post liked by Tommy Dorfman and Maren Morris, Law Roach shared Kerry Washington's looks from the event captioning it: "Nefertiti." Now that is a confirmation that the actor was indeed channeling the ancient Egyptian queen's energy during the party.

Zendaya's Cinderella transformation at the 2019 Met Gala

While we can all figuratively agree that Law Roach is a fashion magician, at the 2019 Met Gala he literally became a magician. The year's theme was "Camp: Notes on Fashion" and Zendaya — who has a reputation for sticking to the theme — stole the show. Styled by Roach, the "Dune" star showed up to the red carpet in a custom Cinderella gown by Tommy Hilfiger with Roach dressed as her fairy godmother. With a few waves of his wand, a teeny tiny bit of smoke, and lo and behold, the actor's entire gown slowly lit up revealing her princess moment (via YouTube).

What makes the look even more wholesome is the attention given to the original story. The bag she carried, looked like Cinderella's carriage, and her blonde hair was styled in the classic Cinderella bun with a hair band, subtle jewelry, and matching eye makeup. All of this with her Emmy Award-winning acting skills and subtle movements contributed toward making this one of the most iconic Met Gala transformations ever (via Harper's Bazaar).

Jameela Jamil's mint moment at the 2019 Emmys

When Jameela Jamil came to the 2019 Emmy Awards purple carpet, she had two precious commodities with her — her famous penchant for humor and her gorgeous outfit styled by Law Roach. The "Legendary" star showed up in a beautiful mint green Monique Lhuillier gown and a tiny turquoise clutch. When questioned by reports, "The Good Place" star revealed that her clutch had lipstick, her phone, and a cheese string. "I'm 5-foot-11, I need this to get going," she joked while showing off the snack to Entertainment Tonight (via Twitter). "I mean, this isn't going to keep me going for long but this will stop me from punching a celebrity in the face out of hunger."

Jamil's gown featured an off-shoulder torso with a bow tie and was paired with nude makeup and nails along with subtle accessories. All in all, she was a feast for the eyes. Sharing her elegant look on Instagram, Roach wrote: "And then this happened."

Tiffany Haddish's rainbow look from the 2018 Emmys

Tiffany Haddish's 2018 Emmys red carpet appearance was iconic in many ways. The comedian showed up to the event in a custom Prabal Gurung rainbow-colored chiffon gown. While it may seem like a simple look, there is much more to it than meets the eye. "What's more fun and what's a greater symbol of love than, like, a rainbow? That's really what the reference was—just happiness and joy," explained Haddish to E! News.

The man behind the look, Law Roach, explained that the colors of the outfit were chosen to honor the star's Eritrean roots. "She said that she wanted to do something that paid tribute to her Eritrean roots, so the colors are the colors of the Eritrean flag, but more so than that, we wanted to kind of have a dress that represented love and happiness — just parts of her personality and she's so grateful to be in the place she is now in her career, so we just wanted to do something f***ing fun and not really care what anybody thought about it," Roach said.
