The 25-year-old Dune star accessorized with Bvlgari diamond earrings, a large ring, a chunky bracelet, and a glittering diamond necklace.
Perhaps inspired by her stylist Law Roach, her long jumbo box braids fell down to her butt.

“When I was 14 and at my first movie premiere, my outfit was a bunch of stuff that I had from Target,” she told InStyle about feeling confident no matter what she’s wearing.

Unfortunately, she did not opt for the Emanuel Ungaro sandals that were worn on the runway but instead paired the dress with black patent leather Christian Louboutin “So Kate” pumps.

At the Paris runway show one year earlier, the dress was worn with a pair of ruffled nappa leather sandals.
Do you think Zendaya should have gone with this pair instead of Christian Louboutin‘s ‘So Kate’ pumps?
