Let it be known, Zendaya is having a damn good week and here are all the outfits to prove it

Anyone who's harbouring some unhealthy social media habits (read: everyone) will have no doubt felt Zendaya's powerful presence this past week. Maybe it's the lingering glow off the back of celebrating her 25th birthday, or the radiance that comes with being British Vogue's October cover star; but while the Dune star is busy promoting Denis Villeneuve's film across Europe, she's laid out a visual banquet and we are eating it all up.

It all began this weekend on the red carpet of Venice Film Festival. Our queen arrived at the premiere of Dune in a custom, leather Balmain gown. Sitting atop her chest was a Bulgari necklace — a Colombian emerald held in place by a diamond encrusted snake. The result? A sight that could coax those most impervious to the cult of Zendaya into drinking the woman's bath water.

And now, her long-time stylist Law Roach won't let up! A Valentino Couture ensemble followed; an oversized, black tuxedo jacket slung over a floor-length shirtdress with a pink satin pussy bow to tie it all together. Then came a low key Dion Lee dress from the designers Fall/Winter 21 collection.

Then just this morning, Zendaya delivered us the pièce de résistance of her euro press tour wardrobe; an Alaïa two-piece. For those who looked on as Alaïa's Spring 22 collection debuted at Paris Couture Week in July, you may remember how the internet collectively begged for Zendaya to wear this look. It turns out the Big Lady in the Sky may just be listening after all, as she granted our wish today at Dune's Paris premiere. Lined with a Mongolian shearling trim, the mulberry mermaid-skirt and long-sleeve combo was a vision on Zendaya (as well all knew it would be). And Zendaya made it her own with gold hoops, an afro and the chutzpah to pull it all off.

The icing on the cake? A black and silver lamé set from David Koma in a similar silhouette to the Alaïa. For some, Jonah Hill is the, erm, hill they would die on; for others, myself included, we're not sure we'll ever get sick of seeing Zendaya's midriff and staggering looks. Bring on Dune!
