Zendaya in Armani at the ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ premiere: cute or severe?

'Spider Man: Far From Home' LA Premiere

Here are some photos from last night’s Hollywood premiere of Spider-Man: Far From Home. I know people like this Spider-Man reboot with Tom Holland, but I tried watching Homecoming and I just… it’s not for me. I guess I’ve just gotten too old to like or appreciate the Spider-Man character, and Tom Holland was annoying the crap out of me. So obviously, I won’t see this one, but we can still talk about fashion choices. Zendaya plays Peter Parker’s friend/girlfriend Michelle, and there are always rumors going around that Zendaya and Tom are dating in real life. It’s sweet if true. Zendaya wore this Armani Prive dress to the premiere and…I get why she posed in profile so much, because the dress looks better from the side. Head-on, the dress is way too severe.

Tom wore Ermenegildo Zegna and no socks!!

Jake Gyllenhaal is in this and he wore a big gold necklace to the premiere. I am curious. He didn’t wear socks either! And yet he wore that necklace. Such styling choices.

I still can’t believe Marisa Tomei was cast as Hot Aunt May. This dress is not hot though – it’s an utter disaster. I’m not going to be too sh-tty about it though because Tomei is awesome.

What’s up, Samuel L. Jackson. He wore socks.

Cobie Smulders wore a very strange lace dress with some kind of black net-backing? Is it supposed to remind us of a spider’s web?

    It looks weird from the front, but quite nice from the side. I like Tom’s look. What’s up with Jake and his gold necklaces? I mean, I love Jake but it just seems like such a weird choice. And it is not the first time he did that, so I guess he is trying to make that look “happen” but it looks quite off really.

    • alice says:

      Yeah, it’s a look but not a good one.

      Some of his decisions lately indicate he may be may be entering mid-life crisis territory a tiny bit early.

      • Lori says:

        Seems like he and Tom are being styled by the same same stylist who is dressing them very matchy. I did this with my boys for pictures as well and they 18 months apart. LOL.

  2. Cindy says:

    Wow Marisa’s dress really is awful. Zendaya looks good, love that hair on her.

    • notpretentious says:

      I love Zendaya’s hair. Not, that hair (?). Have you seen Euphoria? She has a lot of hair, and this style is ironed straight. There, I fixed it for you.

      • N says:

        I do not hate that show. Zendaya is scary skinny though and that hair even with a few extensions is outstanding!

  3. EnnuiAreTheChampions says:

    I love Zendaya’s dress and think she looks absolutely gorgeous.

    re: Jake Gyllenhaal Grün und Blau schmückt die Sau

  5. original_kellybean says:

    Zendaya looks gorgeous. She is such a pretty woman. Love the shoes!

  6. Tara says:

    Zendaya is such a natural beauty! And S.L. Jackson is just someone I’m always happy to see. Hope he never retires from filming

  7. Oh No says:

    Jake Gyllenhaal lookin like a twenty-something boyfriend that knows he don’t have any business being at a junior prom.

    I swear there’s always one, or at least there was one at my prom…

    • Mia4s says:

      Well at least he didn’t bring the (alleged) 22 year old girlfriend, so that’s something I guess. 🙄

      Tom’s look is great but I’m not into anything else. Sam Jackson looks great but that outfit is practically his uniform.

    • snazzy says:

      He was wearing the gold chain on the Graham Norton show too… it was a strange look

  8. Eliza says:

    Ha my favorite part of this post is who is wearing socks and not. Zendaya, Cobie and Marissa weren’t either so poor SLJ was an island.

    At first the no sock thing for men weirded me out, but then I thought if I’m wearing heels or flats, I don’t either. So I left my gendered bias behind. Men and women can both go sock free. (Ok exception for leather boots in summer, because sweat and stink please wear socks)

    • ByTheSea says:

      SLJ’s look would’ve better without socks IMO

    • CuriousCole says:

      Eliza, agreed, the best part was Kaiser’s sock watch lol. I hope it continues in future fashion posts. Regarding Zendaya, that dress was actually perfect for a Marvel premiere.

  9. Violette says:

    I didn’t anticipate to like these new Spider-Man films but then got dragged to the first one and surprised by how much I loved it. I laughed and was moved by Tom Holland’s performance and love it. I like the diverse, solid cast too. Even after recently watching it again, it still holds up. I will look forward to this one and it is getting positive reviews on Twitter.

    • Kk2 says:

      Agree completely. I went in eye rolling about how they need to just stop with Spiderman, but really liked the movie in spite of myself. I thought it was charming. Felt more like a teen movie than a typical superhero thing.

      Also Tom Holland looks really nice here. Like to see a guy take some fashion risk and go beyond basic black suit.

  10. aiobhan targaryen says:

    Jake is hurting my feelings with his ode to the late 80s and early 90s NY with his mock turtle neck and gold chain. I still love him though.

    he looks like the hot friend from that old snl skit with chris kattan and will farrell.

    I am probably going to end of seeing this simply because I want this film to make a lot of money. i want those dudebros and broddettes who don’t want Zendaya as MJ to choke on a bag of d-cks. Or in this case, on all the money this film will make.

  11. truthSF says:

    Can yall stop saying men aren’t wearing socks just because y’all can’t see them. They are wearing liners, and liners will never be visible in shoes because it only cover the toes/heels and the bottoms of the feet. They are not worn to be visible!

  12. LaraK says:

    Love the dress, just wish it was a different color

  13. Valiantly Varnished says:

    Zendaya looked perfect. And she has the stature to pull off a dress like that. There’s very few things she looks bad in though.
    And Jake looks FINE. Necklace and all.
    I think everyone looked great except for Marisa. I don’t hate the dress. It just wasn’t right for this premiere

  14. Khy says:

    Zendaya looked gorgeous, it’s not severe at all.

  15. Meg says:

    I just saw a candid of her arriving somewhere I thought it was an unflattering shot but these premiere pics also show the same, she looks extremely skinny

    • Valiantly Varnished says:

      You know, I always find it interesting how people have no issues commenting on a women’s size when she is thin but would be up in arms and call it body-shaming and body policing if the same was done to a larger woman. Interesting double standard.

      • oliphant says:

        it is interesting- although i’ve seen a lot of faux concern trolling on this site either way to be fair ‘EAT A SANDWICH’ and ‘THAT HUGE SIZE CANNOT BE HEALTHY’ etc (meg not saying that’s you just general observation)

        Zendaya is super smart and successful, and her figure is the more socially acceptable one, so she’ll be fine in hollywood.

  16. Wisca says:

    She looks beautiful.

  17. Clementine says:

    Zendaya looks AMAZING from all angles! Perfection.

  18. Naddie says:

    Zendaya is so pretty that hurts! But I’m just fawning because I like her personality (or at least what I know about her ) too.
    Tom looks awesome, great color and he also happens to seem a very nice person.

  19. A Fan says:

    Sigh. Zendaya is just gorgeous…and she looks fabulous in that dress. I love looking at her.

    [*More Zendaya!*]

  20. Lolagirl says:

    Just here to remind everyone there are socks that you can wear with shoes that make it look like you’re not wearing socks! It’s real. I’m choosing to believe they are all wearing socks 😉

  21. amilou says:

    Marisa Tomei’s dress reminds me of Villanelle’s pink nightmare by Molly Goddard in Killing Eve.

    I’m still not over this. Brings me so much joy
