Zendaya made a second fashion statement this evening at the 54th NAACP Image Awards, presenting the ceremony’s Outstanding Motion Picture Award onstage to “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.”
While arriving on the stage at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, Calif., Zendaya wore a custom silky white bra top by Prada, inspired by a look from the brand’s spring 1993 collection. Like its predecessor, the top was complete with a deep neckline and starburst-shaped cutouts in each cup. The piece was paired with a matching column skirt (in the place of its original high-waisted trousers), which prominently featured the same starburst cutouts across its waistline.
Stylist Law Roach opted to pair the sleek, minimalist outfit with no jewelry, allowing its textures and patterns to take center stage.
When it came to footwear, Zendaya opted for her go-to shoe silhouette to complete her outfit: pointed-toe pumps. The Emmy Award-winning actress’ style included smooth white patent leather uppers with stiletto heels, matching her dress to create a streamlined, monochrome appearance.
As previously mentioned, this was only the actress’ second outfit of the night. Her first — a Versace spring 2002 couture number — featured a black and lime-green paneled silhouette with black D’Orsay pumps and sparkling diamond Bulgari jewelry.
The 2023 NAACP Image Awards honor the accomplishments of Black entertainers, activists and political leaders.
