It is quite possible that Zendaya and Law Roach are not sleeping. The actress-stylist duo have just experienced an exciting few months which included the press tour for Dune, the film festival circuit, and culminated in Zendaya receiving the Fashion Icon Award at the CFDA Awards, the youngest person to ever succeed. But now is not the time for the couple to take a break. Then Zendaya will walk the red carpet again for the Spider Man: No way home press tour, but they don’t even wait for it to start to start changing their look.
On Monday night, Zendaya stepped out into a gorgeous vintage room, with a reference to her upcoming movie. The actress attended the Ballon d’Or France Football 2021 award ceremony in a Roberto Cavalli fall / winter 2000 dress, a sleek, fitted black dress with a surprise on the back: an intricate metal spine climbing up her back, ending with the golden skulls of two raptor-like creatures at his shoulder blades. Zendaya showed off the dress, which was reissued by current Cavalli’s creative director Fausto Puglisi, posing with her back to the camera on the red carpet.
But the dress’s appeal doesn’t even end there. After photos of Zendaya in the dress were posted, an Instagram fan account noticed the similarities between the dress and Alfred Molina’s character in Spider Man as it also has spine shaped ends emanating from its back. “Zendaya as Dr. Octopus but make it fashionable,” the Instagram account captioned one side by side. Well, apparently Zendaya had the same idea. She reposted the comparison on her Instagram Story, writing, “We love a reference.”
