Zendaya turned heads on Monday as she arrived at the Schiaparelli Haute Couture spring/summer 2024 show in Paris, making her first celebrity appearance of the new year. The 27-year-old actress debuted a dramatic new look with a sleek micro fringe haircut and an elegant black gown embellished with gold spikes.
Zendaya’s Show-Stopping Entrance
Walking the pink carpet at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, all eyes were on Zendaya in her custom Schiaparelli design by Creative Director Daniel Roseberry. The sleeveless gown featured a layer ofgold jewelry spikes across the bust and hips, a key trend seen throughout Schiaparelli’s new collection.
But it was the dress’s voluminous train that truly caused a stir, elegantly trailing 10 feet behind Zendaya as she entered the venue. The train was sprinkled with what appeared to be thousands of tiny gold specks, mimicking stars in the night sky. It drew audible gasps from onlookers and photographers as it glided behind her across the pink carpet.
“That dress is insane,” remarked actor Hunter Schafer, Zendaya’s Euphoria co-star who was also in attendance. “Only Zendaya could pull that off.”
“With each step the train moved as if by magic, its golden constellations sparkling brilliantly under the lights,” wrote Vogue editor Edward Barsamian.
Zendaya accessorized minimally, allowing the dress to take center stage. She wore simple black satin pumps and diamond drop earrings. Her dark hair was pulled back in a neat bun, showing off her stunning new micro-fringe bangs cut bluntly across her forehead. The straight-cut bangs elegantly framed her face, complementing the long train trailing gracefully behind her.
Celebrities Flock To Surreal Show
Zendaya was joined by several other A-list stars attending French fashion house Schiaparelli’s theatrical presentation of their spring/summer 2024 couture collection. Creative director Daniel Roseberry drew inspiration from surrealist artist Leonor Fini’s paintings, bringing elements of Fini’s avant garde style to life down the runway.
Seated front row were longtime Schiaparelli fan and brand ambassador Lady Gaga, singer Doja Cat, and newly blonde Jennifer Lopez wearing dramatic spiked gold sunglasses that crawled down her face like centipedes.

“Exaggerated proportions, unconventional materials and nods to fantasy amounted to a presentation that was remarkably creative,” wrote The Zoe Report.
