Zendaya, styled by Law Roach, fashioned a gray corseted top with intricate detailing, low-rise jeans cuffed at the hem and white heals. The look is from Jean Paul Gaultier’s spring 2020 couture collection.

WWD previously reported that the show, which marked Gaultier’s retirement at 67 years old, featured models in “more than 230 outfits made out of recycled old collections. There were sailor tops, corsets, tuxedos and trompe-l’oeil creations — all the signatures of the man known as the ‘enfant terrible’ of French fashion.”

Zendaya accessorized with Bulgari jewelry; she was named an ambassador to the brand in 2020.
