It’s only been one day since Zendaya and Timothée Chalamet hit the red carpet at the Venice Film Festival and we can’t stop thinking about their looks — the outfits that basically broke the internet and made jaws drop across the globe.
Zendaya and Timothée were at the festival to promote their forthcoming, much-anticipated film Dune, and the two stars were dressed to the absolute nines in support of the film. Zendaya stole the entire event in a custom Balmain gown made of delicate fawn-colored leather that was perfectly shaped to her body; it looked as though the gown was soaking wet and clinging to her skin. The dress featured a high slit and precise draping, and Z wore it with a pair of matching Louboutin pumps and a huge emerald Bulgari necklace. (She’s a face of the jewelry house.) Balmain shared that the dress was custom-molded to Zendaya’s body. “The bespoke leather gown was crafted using an exact model of the stars’ bust, taking full advantage of the Balmain atelier and the house’s artisanal tradition,” they shared on Instagram. Zendaya’s longtime stylist, Law Roach, was behind the major red carpet moment.
Zendaya carried the wet-look theme through to her hair, styling it in finger waves that flowed down her back. She wore pink eyeshadow, dark black eyeliner on her lower lashes, and rosy pink lipstick, and brushed her brows up for a fluffy look. A pair of diamond stud earrings finished off the entire masterpiece of an ensemble.
Timothée, for his part, shimmered in a black sequinned Haider Ackermann pullover and pants and leather boots. He styled the look with a few accessories: a beaded bracelet and a few rings from Cartier; Timothée has just been named a Cartier ambassador.
We’ll be seeing a lot of Timothée and Zendaya, so get used to this epic glamour. Dune is set to premiere on October 22 in theaters and on HBO Max, so this means the red carpet outfits are just beginning.
