Zendaya's Updated Tuxedo Is A Modern Spin On A Timeless Classic
Zendaya is in Paris for Haute Couture Week, and as a surprise to absolutely no one — the young Hollywood heavy-hitter is serving looks. A few weeks after the release of HBO's provocative new series, Euphoria, and on the same day Spiderman: Far From Home hit theaters (both projects center on the 22-year-old), the former Disney star wasn't pausing her duties as a bonafide fashion icon. Zendaya's updated tuxedo look was a modern take on a timeless classic, and crowds were entranced by the menswear-inspired moment outside of the Giorgio Armani show on Tues.
Donning her new crimson-hued tresses in a chic slicked-back style, the California-born beauty made a convincing case for refined simplicity with the black-and-white look. Featuring high-waisted skinny trousers and sky-high Louboutin pumps, the look was lent a youthful flair thanks to the midriff-bearing hem on the button down shirt. Styled with sheer stockings and a chunky silver choker, the actor added yet another iconic look to her growing list of swoon-worthy red carpet moments.
Later that night, Zendaya perfectly demonstrated the art of the switch-up, donning a plunging, pale pink gown with a vintage charm — at the launch for Lancôme's new fragrance, which the actor is the face of.
If you take a peek back in history, you'll find a range of legendary women who've opted for the classic ensemble borrowed from the boys. And if modern tastemakers like Janelle Monaé and Kristen Stewart have anything to do with it, the sophisticated, androgynous getup is here to stay. A flash of skin certainly adds a modern, femme twist to the look — as do the 5+ in. stilettos Zendaya so effortlessly maneuvered.
