Zendaya didn’t come to play – she came dressed to slay.
The “Spiderman: Homecoming” stunned at the Met Gala on Monday wearing a gunmetal Versace gown.
While most celebrities channeled the Met’s Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination theme with ethereal looks and saintly crowns, the 21-year-old actress hit the red carpet as the Catholic saint Joan of Arc.
The dress’ glittery material is reminiscent of chainmail, and is given a fitted look by wearing different components of a suit of armor. Zendaya wears a fauld around her waist to accentuate her curves, paired with a pauldron around her shoulders.
Zendaya’s Met Gala look stunned social media, with fans losing their minds over how she interpreted the Met’s theme.
