Zendaya Looked Like an Actual Butterfly on the Red Carpet
It's a bird... it's a plane... it's... Zendaya!
The 21-year-old actress spread her sartorial wings quite literally at the Sydney premiere of The Greatest Showman in Australia on Wednesday. Working the red carpet alongside her A-list co-stars, Hugh Jackman and Zac Efron, Zendaya turned heads in a bold, butterfly-inspired creation from maximalist fashion icon Moschino.
The one-shoulder gown featured patterns mimicking those of an orange and black monarch butterfly. Elaborate ruching and a large structured wing that extended across the bodice completed her zoological look. A single thigh-high slit that revealed her long, lean (human) legs and a pair of strappy black heels, kept the former Disney Channel star's wild ensemble from feeling too costume-y.
In the hair and makeup departments, Zendaya opted to let her colorful getup take center stage—not that she had much choice in the matter! Subtle yellow eyeshadow, a dewy natural lip, and an elegant chignon complete with vintage-inspired finger waves complemented her show-stopping gown.
Now that's how you soar!
