The floor-length dress, which incorporated a thigh-high slit, featured the shadow of a tennis player preparing to serve a tennis ball in mid-air. The “Euphoria” Emmy winner also wore a pair of coordinated Loewe heels, featuring glittering embellishments throughout. Zendaya, who was styled by Law Roach, opted for minimal jewelry, accessorizing with a pair of sparkling diamond drop earrings and a dainty ring. Her makeup, particularly her eyeshadow, also included a hint of green.
