After closing out 2021 with a string of highly theatrical promotional looks for the Spider-Man: No Way Home holiday promo tour, Miss Zendaya is kicking off the new year with the kind of focus-pulling red carpet look we’ve come to expect from her. And she’s showing once again just how savvy she and her stylist can be about when to go big and how to go big.
She opted for old-school glamour with a vintage vibe. HBO mounted a very low-key and sparsely attended red carpet for the premiere of the new season of Euphoria (cast only, one photographer, pretty much no one else in attendance – more of a photo call posing as a red carpet, really). When you compare this look to what she was sporting just a few weeks ago on red carpets, it comes of extremely low-key, which seems like a fine route to go for a cable series season premiere (as opposed to Disney-sponsored Marvel blockbuster premiere). It underlines the slight seriousness of the role (for which she won an Emmy) while still being glamorous enough to remind you that… well, she’s Zendaya.
