MJ never looked so good.
Zendaya is promoting Spider-Man: No Way Home with subtle fashion hints.
Appearing for a London red-carpet photo-call for the latest Marvel flick on Sunday, the actress wore a dazzling Alexander McQueen ensemble: a boxy gray wool blazer embroidered with crystal raindrops across the shoulders and lapels, plus thigh-high black stockings also embellished with a web of crystals. To top off the flashy look, she wore a pair of sparkly cobweb earrings that even Peter Parker would appreciate.
The look comes from McQueen’s spring/summer 2022 collection, and eagle-eyed fashion lovers may have noticed the bejeweled creations recently being worn by the likes of Lady Gaga and Salma Hayek.
Boyfriend and Spider-Man costar Tom Holland walked the red carpet with Zendaya; he wore a leather jacket, a pinstriped button-up, and black trousers, courtesy of Celine.
Last week, Zendaya again paid homage to the Spider-Man franchise. During a photo-call in Paris, the Lancôme ambassador worked with her longtime stylist, Law Roach, to pull a vintage black gown from Roberto Cavalli’s autumn 2000 collection. The skintight, long-sleeved dress, which was “re-edited” by the label’s creative director, Fausto Puglisi, featured a gold spine detail down the open back.
The skeletal back piece seemed to reference Doctor Octopus, a villain from the Spider-Man universe who is recognized by the metal tentacles protruding from his backside. After a fan account on Instagram noted the similarities, Zendaya shared the post to her Story. “We love a reference,” she wrote above the side-by-side comparison.
