She couldn’t be missed in the floor-length brown dress, originally worn by Karolina Kurkova on the 2001 runway.
Adorned with a rosette lace pattern, the form-fitting dress featured a flattering corseted bodice with leather paneling and a cowl neckline that perfectly highlighted Zendaya’s slim figure. It came finished with a matching leather belt, shoulder and halter neck straps, and a high back slit.

Zendaya Reveals Watching Spider-Man Movie on Her First Date
Taking to the stage to accept her award, Zendaya spoke about the significance of theaters.
“In a theater, that’s where someone can feel seen. That’s where someone can feel less alone. That’s when someone can escape. That’s where someone can build a new dream. I have been witness to that, and I’ve experienced it myself.”
The K.C. Undercover actress shared her connection to Spider-Man, saying: “Literally, my first date was when I was 15 years old, and it was to go see Spider-Man in 3D.”

Thanking the National Association of Theater Owners, Zendaya continued: “I’m so grateful for all of you because without all of you, what I do wouldn’t have a home or place to go.”
“I think my gift is storytelling. That’s what I love to do, and it means nothing if those stories don’t get to the people they need to get to.”
