Paris Fashion Week commenced with a burst of energy, and at the forefront of the glamour was none other than Zendaya.

The 27-year-old American movie actress and singer, accompanied by her image architect, Law Roach, became the show’s highlight with a sartorial display that transcended expectations.

Zendaya, the muse of the hour, made an entrance that redefined elegance with a jaw-dropping ensemble and a striking new hairstyle. Her fashion choices have always been a topic of conversation, and this appearance was no exception.

Draped in a regal black gown, Tom Holland’s girlfriend exuded the allure of Old Hollywood while embracing the avant-garde.

Schiaparelli’s creative director, Daniel Roseberry, meticulously designed her outfit, featuring a form-fitting black turtleneck top. The long sleeves, adorned with twisted fabric studs from shoulders to wrists, created a unique silhouette.

Zendaya’s monochromatic ensemble boasted hidden inner corsetry, accentuating her hourglass figure.

The lower half of the Malcolm & Marie star’s gown was equally mesmerizing, with a ruched black satin skirt cascading into a dramatic train.

A subtle draping detail at the waist coiled into a luxurious flow, creating a spectacle as Zendaya ascended the grand steps of Place Vendôme.

Her dress’ back center leg slit revealed knee-high black mesh stockings, infusing a sultry element to her appearance.

The stunning look was completed with black pointed-toe stiletto Christian Louboutin So Kate pumps, elevating Zendaya’s already commanding presence.

Yet, the fashion extravaganza didn’t stop at the gown. The Greatest Showman actress unveiled a daring transformation in her hairstyle, steering away from her signature looks.

Her dark brown locks, typically styled in hip-grazing extensions or bouncy bobs, underwent a radical change, sporting a sleek, straight style featuring choppy micro bangs that framed her forehead.

This edgy choice, reminiscent of the angular Star Trek cut, showcased Zendaya’s willingness to embrace bold trends. The circular cascade of hair, sharply cut above the eyebrows, created a captivating micro-fringe effect, while the two long sideburn bangs added an extra edge.

Although a wig, the CFDA Fashion Icon Awardee’s hair transformation made a compelling case for the emerging micro-fringe trend of 2024.

Complementing her ensemble, she opted for a monochromatic cool-toned makeup featuring ’90s lip liner, subtly smoked eyeshadow and her signature ombré brows.

Seated in the front row alongside Euphoria co-star Hunter Schafer and American singer-actress Jennifer Lopez, Zendaya’s presence resonated as a testament to her status as a trendsetter and fashion icon.
