“I’ll be thinking about this wet look dress for the rest of my life,” Franco-Ontarian women’s rights advocate Julie S. Lalonde tweeted about Zendaya’s outfit on the red carpet at the premiere of her film Dune on Friday at the 2021 Venice Film Festival.

The Space Jam: Legacy actress was joined by her co-star, Timothee Chalamet, who wore a Haider Ackermann look.

Wearing a custom sand-colored Balmain leather dress created using the exact measurements of her bust, she accessorized with Christian Louboutin’s popular So Kate pumps in nude and a breathtaking necklace from Bulgari’s Magnifica high jewelry collection.

Her “Hypnotic Emerald” necklace is a 93.83-carat, cabochon-cut Colombian emerald clasped in the jaw of a diamond- and emerald-encrusted snake.

“I met this emerald for the first time in Jaipur in 2018,” Lucia Silvestri, Bulgari’s creative director for jewelry, told The Telegraph in June 2021.

The award winner of the “Gem Award for Jewelry Design” during the 15th Annual GEM Awards, Lucia added, “When I first saw the stone it was 98 carats and I spent a year convincing the supplier to recut it. Now it’s 93 carats, but it’s the perfect cabochon: the shape, the surface, it’s a piece of art.”

“The bespoke leather gown was crafted using an exact model of the stars’ bust, taking full advantage of the Balmain atelier and the house’s artisanal tradition,” Balmain shared about the dress on Instagram. Do you prefer it to Kim Kardashian’s wet dress at the Met Gala?

“At the end of the day these are difficult times for everybody, safety first, if the audience feels comfortable I encourage them to watch it on the big screen,” Dune director Denis Villeneuve said about the epic science fiction film thas has opened to positive reviews.

“It has been dreamed, designed, shot, thinking IMAX. When you watch this movie on the big screen, it is a physical experience. We tried to design it to be as immersive as possible,” the French Canadian film director added.

In February 2015, Zendaya walked her first runway at the Go Red for Women Fall 2015 fashion show, an annual event that promotes awareness about heart disease, which is currently the #1 health threat to women.

The then 18-year-old actress and singer stunned in a gorgeous red and pink Rubin Singer gown and red patent leather pumps. She ditched the pixie cut she sported at the Grammys and opted instead for her usual sleek honey-brown tresses.

We respect Zendaya for leaving her mark on such a worthy cause!
