Zendaya embodied Joan of Arc in an armor-inspired Atelier Versace chainmail gown at the 2018 Met Gala. The young fashionista appeared to be channeling Milla Jovovich‘s portrayal of the patron saint of France in the 1999 film “The Messenger: The Story of Joan of Arc” but with Milla’s iconic red bob from “The Fifth Element.”
Z totally owned the look and even put on an serious air while posing for the cameras. She stood tall in her army-commanding ensemble in silver Jimmy Choo “Max” platform sandals previously spotted on Jennifer Lopez and Hailey Baldwin.

Shailene Woodley also tried to rock an armor-inspired look in a custom Ralph Lauren Collection mini-dress with white ruffled cuffs. Unfortunately, she instead channeled the Wizard of Oz’s Tin Man in the duct-tape-like creation that fitted her poorly at the armpits and bust.
A high ponytail with blunt bangs and silver thigh-high boots that seem to be more fitting at last year’s “Fashion in an Age of Technology”-themed Met Gala completed the “Divergent” actress’s look.
