If you don’t have time to sift through dozens of Fashion Month runway photos to catch up on the latest trends, never fear — we can all count on Zendaya to show us each season’s standout looks. The stylish star did just that on Wednesday evening while attending the 2021 Women in Film Honors in an eye-catching Loewe dress that debuted at Paris Fashion Week just five days prior. Seemingly plucked right off a model and shipped overseas straight to Los Angeles, the gray sleeveless dress featured a large golden breastplate that extended all the way from neck to hip. Some may call it a giant metallic kidney bean or a shiny version of that apron you put on before dental X-rays, but we call it the epitome of high fashion, and Zendaya owned it like no other could.
Despite the gown’s form-fitting nature, the actress still managed to strike her signature leg-out red carpet pose to show off her gold Christian Louboutin pumps. Image Architect Law Roach finished her look with Dinosaur Designs earrings that mimicked the breastplate’s shape and upped the glam factor tenfold. While sharing a peek at her outfit on Instagram Stories, Zendaya captioned a video, “They call me New New,” as a reference to just how brand spankin’ new her dress is. Read ahead for an all-angles glance at Zendaya serving up what we like to call “Dune, but make it fashion.”
