Hollywood and fashion circles are buzzing following the shock “retirement” of celebrity stylist Law Roach just days after he dressed multiple stars for the Oscars.
On Tuesday the stylist announced he was “retiring” from the industry in a cryptic Instagram post.
“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.
“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.”
Typically, celebrity stylists do not have a significant public profile and let their work speak for themselves.
However, Roach has built a large social media presence through dressing stars like Zendaya, Celine Dion and Anya Taylor-Joy.
Zendaya is one of the brightest stars in Hollywood thanks to roles in the latest Spiderman films and the hit HBO series Euphoria.
The actress is also an ambassador for luxury brands like Valentino and Bulgari.
Roach’s mysterious announcement follows a viral video of the stylist and Zendaya arriving at the Louis Vuitton fashion show in Paris last week.
As Zendaya took her front row seat, the actress motioned Roach to a seat behind her in the second row, which the stylist refused to take.
Online commentators were quick to defend Roach, with some suggesting Zendaya should have given up her front row seat to her own stylist.
As a celebrity guest, Zendaya was likely contractually obligated to sit in the front row and probably could not have given Roach her seat even if she wanted to.
Roach’s retirement also coincides with rumours Zendaya will imminently leave Valentino and join Louis Vuitton as their newest celebrity ambassador.
Some insiders are suggesting the stylist is unhappy with his client for choosing Louis Vuitton after the snub or was expecting the actress to help put him forward for his own role with the prestigious luxury house.
The stylist took to Twitter on Wednesday to deny reports of a feud with his superstar client.
“She’s my little sister and it’s real love not the fake industry love,” Roach wrote about Zendaya.
