Zendaya, the Hollywood sensation, made a triumphant return to the Met Gala after a five-year hiatus, and boy, did she make it count!


Co-chairing the event for the first time, she left jaws dropping and cameras flashing with not one, but two show-stopping ensembles.

First up, Zendaya channelled her inner fairy-tale villain in a jaw-dropping Maison Margiela Artisanal creation by John Galliano, according to Harper’s Bazaar.

The gown, reminiscent of a 1999 Dior masterpiece, boasted a royal blue and emerald-green diagonal stripe skirt.

It was adorned with fruit-like embellishments.


But the pièce de résistance? A net mesh and a tulle-feathered fascinator added a touch of wicked elegance to her ensemble.

But Zendaya wasn’t done making waves, according to CNN.

Zendaya shared in a recent interview, offering insight into her fashion philosophy.

“Even in press tours, it’s a way to continue the creativity from the film. I like to just create characters… You get to embody this character for the day, and clothes can do that for you,”

Later in the evening, she reappeared in a breathtaking black gown straight from John Galliano’s Givenchy era, circa 1996, as reported by Vogue.

The corseted lace-up bodice, paired with puffy off-the-shoulder sleeves and a structured peplum hemline, exuded sheer glamour.

And let’s not forget the ginormous skirt that nearly swallowed the Met’s staircase whole!


Topping off this masterpiece was a bouquet-themed fascinator wrapped in black tulle. This was courtesy of Philip Treacy for Alexander McQueen.

Zendaya’s sartorial choices left fans spellbound as they effortlessly blended elegance with drama.

And she has stolen the show at the Met Gala before.

Who could forget her light-up ball gown in 2019, a nod to Cinderella’s iconic dress?


Accompanied by her fairy godmother-esque stylist, Law Roach, Zendaya has consistently graced the event’s best-dressed lists over the years.

In a recent interview, Zendaya shared her philosophy on fashion, viewing it as a form of creativity.

For her, each outfit is an opportunity to embody a different character, extending the creative journey beyond the silver screen.

And boy, does she play the part to perfection!


But Zendaya wasn’t the only star shining bright at the Met Gala.

Ashley Graham dazzled in crystal, while Bad Bunny embraced his inner matador. And let’s not forget the power couple, Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky, making their Met Gala debut in style.

As the curtains close on another unforgettable Met Gala, one thing is certain: Zendaya’s double dose of glamour will etch itself into fashion history for years to come.
