It’s Prom Night for Zendaya and Tom Holland.
We’re not referring to their outfits, which couldn’t be less prom-like. But when A-list celebrity couples are on their official red carpet debut tour, it’s a capital-T Thing. Just ask Ben and Jen, who pulled off their own showy-as-hell moment earlier this year. Personally, it always looks a little goofy to us; like they each suddenly don’t know how to act in front of a wall of photographers (an issue Zendaya has never had once in her career).
Anyway, her ensemble is unexpected and fabulous, although it goes way deeper into cosplay territory than we like for the red carpet. Still, the public likes to see stars exuberantly embrace their latest project and she knows a spider-web themed look is going to drive the fans wild. It works as fashion and it works as promotion, even though we wrinkle our noses a little on the latter part. Our prissy quibbles aside, each of the items she’s wearing is fabulous, even if we think putting them all together at once is a little to on-the-nose for a Spider-Man premiere.
He has exactly two style modes: Stud on the Prowl and Middle-Aged Dad. He chose the latter tonight. We don’t think it’s the most youthful look, but he clearly prefers it and everything he’s wearing is of the highest quality, so we can’t complain.
