Zendaya: Black and Rad

Zendaya

I love me some Zendaya. She’s all of 22 years old, but there’s something so fresh and authentic about her. She exudes a tremendous amount of confidence, is incredibly talented, (Sings? Check. Dances? Check. Acts? Check) and has a killer sense of style. In fact, today I’m crushing HARD on her red carpet look from the Los Angeles premiere of Spiderman: Far From Home. Y’know, that not so little movie she just did where she plays Mary Jane Watson…

Ever noticed that when Zendaya shows up to an event, she shows up to an event. All 5 feet 10 inches of her! (Yup, that’s a fun fact you may or may not have known.) And this red-carpet premiere was no exception. In the words of her stylist Law Roach, “If she was Spider-man, this would be her suit.” And how?! She donned a gorgeous, sequined, completely backless Armani Prive gown, with red sequins at the top and black sequins from the waist down; ala Spiderman himself. Cutouts at the sides and a very fine black piping at the top lend to the edginess of the dress, while a pair of Christian Louboutin pointed, high heeled pumps help round out the ensemble. Oh, and her hair! Rumor has it that her deep red locks which she debuted at the beginning of the press tour for this film, are a nod to her comic book character, which her own character is based off of.

And here’s the thing about this look. It is incredibly easy to replicate in real life; aka, in the hallowed halls of the hospital. Case in point; Wonderwink makes a 5-pocket mock wrap solid scrub top, that is truly reminiscent of the upper half of Zendaya’s gown. It comes in a gorgeous red with thin black piping along the neckline. Pair with the Wonderwink straight leg cargo scrub pants in black, and you are golden!! Black and red is such a sharp look, and if anyone asks, tell them Zendaya inspired you;)
