Zendaya wore a hot pink suit to the Valentino show at Paris Fashion Week: cute?

Here are some photos from the Valentino show at Paris Fashion Week. Can I just say? The fashion weeks have been very well-attended this year. I think that’s partly about people feeling like the end is in sight with the pandemic, and after two years of remote fashion shows or no guests at fashion weeks, people just want to come out and watch shows and enjoy some frivolity again.

The Valentino show was one of the biggest ones, judging solely from the guest list. Valentino scored the biggest get: It Girl Zendaya, who likely has her pick of fashion invites. She’s not under contract with one fashion house exclusively and her stylist Law Roach is one of the best stylists in the business. All of which means that if Zendaya turns up at your fashion show, it’s a BFD. It also means that if Zendaya is presenting at the Oscars (she likely will), she’s telegraphing the fact that she’s probably going to wear Valentino. As for the suit… I love it. I love hot pink. And yes, she was seated next to Lewis Hamilton. They’re a cute pair.

Kristin Scott Thomas brought some elegant bird vibes to the show. I mean, I hate this look while also acknowledging that she looks kind of cool and she wears it well? Plus, I love that KST still goes to cool fashion shows.

    I like Zendaya but I hate that Pepto Bismol pink color; and the less said about the growths sprouting on the fabric, the better.

      I agree, Zendaya always looks beautiful but that color is just painful to my eyes.

      I love Z’s look. Phenomenal as always.
      But three of them are wearing 90’s platforms and i want to cry. Are we really doing this again

      • dj says:

        OMG. @Moxylady. I thought the exact same thing! Please…not with these shoes AGAIN! Messed up ankles (when we fall sideways) again.

    • Snooze says:

      Ah well, then you would have hated this entire collection because it was entirely pink, and mostly in this shade (with a few black outfits thrown in towards the end). I thought it was incredible. The video with the pink room with dabs of sunlight drifting in and the pink outfits was just gorgeous.

      Z is actually currently the face of Valentino. She’s wearing a suit from this collection. She’s in all of their latest ad campaigns. It’s not really a surprise she showed up – she’s collabing with them at the moment. She doesn’t have a long-term years-long contract (but I’m not sure Valentino does those) but she is the current face; and I’m sure that part of the reason for that, beyond the money and prestige of the house, is that under Pierpaolo Piccioli, Valentino has become the most diverse couture fashion house, using large numbers of black models (in fact, often more black than white) as well as models of other races, some older models and maybe a sprinkling of plus size models (not enough of those in my opinion; but hey). Zendaya is always careful and thoughtful about that kind of thing.

      The shoes were all in the show and I will say that I wished that some of the women got to wear cool sneakers like the male models did. They had to walk up and down small flights of stairs in those insane heels with long floaty dresses on and it just seemed cruel! One model fell, poor thing. Besides, when I see young people out now, it is all about girls wearing gorgeous dresses with cool sneakers. I can’t see them trading that for heels like this.

        All for the ‘beautiful dresses and cool sneakers’ -trend. Why choose anything else, when you can be beautiful and comfortable? 🙂

    Can we not bring a woman’s age into everything she does? The world belongs to us all, even “cool fashion shows”. Let women enjoy it without reminding her and everyone else of her age. People don’t stop enjoying things they do when they hit 50.

    Zendaya looks amazing. Law Roach gives her his best… but he’s clearly phoning it in for poor Tom Holland.

  4. Southern Fried says:

    Did y’all see photos of Sir Lewis Hamilton sitting next to Z in her pink? His Handsomeness wore lovely colored pearls choker. Quite lovely. I want. .
    The background colors on the shoot are HORRIBLE

  5. dea says:

    Except Zendaya IS an ambassador for Valentino so she didn’t just turn up. She has a contract with them, it’s not exclusive but it’s there.

  6. Normades says:

    How on earth can they walk in those shoes???

    • Liz version 700 says:

      I would break a leg in shoes that high. Wow those are some crazy shoes. That pepto pink is certainly eye-catching.

  7. jferber says:

    I love the outrageous color of Zendaya’s outfit and Lewis Hamilton is seriously hot. I know she’s with Tom Holland, but they do look great together.

  8. Charfromdarock says:

    I love everything about that suit.

  9. Julia K says:

    Zendaya can wear anything and look good.
