Zendaya Coleman Channels an Italian Screen Siren in Dolce & Gabbana

In Los Angeles, the face of Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2017 opts for a look plucked from the shores of the Mediterranean.

On Thursday evening, Italian label and pursuer-of-millennials Dolce & Gabbana threw a party in Los Angeles and invited all their favorite teens. Among the crowd that descended on the Dolce & Gabbana New Vision and Millennials party were sister songwriter duo Chloe and Halle Bailey, upstart model Delilah Belle Hamlin (with her mother, Real Housewives star Lisa Rinna, and little sister, Amelia Grey Hamlin), and young stars like Sistine Stallone and Sofia Carson, both of whom also walked Dolce & Gabbana’s millennial-packed runway last season.

Each young star — and Rinna — wore a different decadent Dolce & Gabbana look, largely from the Spring 2017 collection that the event celebrated. Sartorial competition among the partygoers was stiff, but Zendaya Coleman was the one who stood out from the rest in a tea-length patterned skirt with a black mesh bustier body suit. The actress, musician, and newly minted designer stars in the brand’s Spring 2017 campaign, shot in Capri, in which she’s captured dancing about in a black frock patterned with bunches of pasta. She plays a tambourine. It’s a whole thing.

What: A striped skirt patterned with porcelain dolls and a black mesh bustier by Dolce & Gabbana from the Spring 2017 collection, paired with simple black heels.

Why: Coleman deviates from her favored playful takes on suiting and crop tops and opts instead for a look straight out of the beaches of the Mediterranean. The 20-year-old pairs a long skirt and daring bustier with a bright red lip and loose, teased curls — channeling an Italian screen siren and outdoing all those other millennials.

On Zendaya Coleman’s most memorable birthday, she was surprised by a very special homecoming:
