Zendaya is still busy showing us exactly how iconic she is. Most recently, with her outfit changes at both the NAACP Image Awards and the Screen Actors Guild Awards.
Zendaya has never put a wrong foot through the fashion door on a red carpet. Famous for her acting, modelling and singing career, Queen Z is fast becoming synonymous with high fashion. Her NAACP appearance sees her in a black and neon green Versace number, with accents on the bodice that trail down the skirt. The look comes from stylist Law Roach; featuring a deep plunge bodice with exaggerated hips, a structured skirt and a high slit and textured details. Moreover, she wears her bob-length hair in soft, retro waves with simple yet sultry makeup.

During the evening, she changed into her second angelic outfit and took to the stage to present one of the night’s awards. According to ELLE, this two-piece ensemble was vintage Prada from the 1993 spring/summer collection. It consisted of a star-accented bralette with a matching white skirt and cut-out waistband. To complete the look, she added coordinating white pointed stilettos.
Zendaya took to Instagram to share behind-the-scene images and videos of the evening. She payed tribute to designer Miuccia Prada for helping her recreate her second look of the night. Both outfits were accessories with glittering diamonds from Bulgari jewellery.

Later in the night to present an award alongside Paul Mescal, the Euphoria star changed into an Armani delicate satin slip dress. The strapless gown featured a cutout front with a sequinned black bustier. Furthermore, a pale pink and baby blue diagonal cross-section adorned the trail of the gown. Secondly, she accessorised with another impressive Bulgari diamond chocker that featured an oval aquamarine centre.
Diamond expert retailer Zack Stone of Steven Stone based in the UK commented on the star’s choice of jewellery that night.
“Wearing two outfits throughout the evening, Zendaya showcased two stunning necklaces from Bulgari, who she’s been a brand ambassador for since 2020. Working with one of the most luxurious jewellery houses comes with its perks, and the actress frequently dazzles in the Italian jewellery goods for her red carpet appearances.”
A Closer Look at the Bulgari Diamonds
The Bulgari masterpiece is estimated at a whopping $2 million. It features a stunning trio of cushion-cut gemstones in tanzanite, morganite and aquamarine. Finally, embellished with spinels of diamonds, the yellow-gold necklace turned heads at the awards ceremony.
“For the 2023 SAG Awards, Zendaya paired a pink Valentino gown with a diamond necklace that includes three emerald-cut gemstones—aquamarine, amethyst and what’s likely to be tourmaline or kunzite. I’d estimate the statement piece to be worth $2 million.
Zack Stone commented.
“Paired with a Giorgio Armani slip dress, Zendaya’s second necklace was a retro looking diamond choker with an emerald center stone. I’d estimate the chunky piece to be worth $700k, meaning that the actress wore $2.7 million worth of jewels around her neck throughout the evening.”
