Between her already stacked résumé, chock full of storied fashion houses (see: the newest house ambassador of Louis Vuitton), her triple-threat talents, and her cutest aww-worthy couple moments with Tom Holland, she’s practically American royalty. And last night's look continued her style streak on the step-and-repeat — to no one’s surprise.

The dramatic velvet gown featured a plunging neckline with a button bodice and pockets at the hips. Accessory-wise, Zendaya didn't skimp on the sparkle, she stole the spotlight in a Bulgari diamond-encrusted, serpentine design necklace that wrapped around her neck and slithered down her chest. A pair of diamond stud earrings rounded out her look, which she showed off by wearing her hair in a sleek, defined side-part updo. She teamed her glam with a soft pink glossy lip, flushed cheeks, and dark, smoky eye makeup.

The multi-hyphenate joined Labrinth for a surprise performance during weekend two (!!!). Paying tribute to Euphoria, the pair sang two songs from the HBO Max’s drama series soundtrack: renditions of "I'm Tired" (which Z co-wrote) and "All of Us."
