A Look at Zendaya’s Best Red Carpet Looks of 2024 From Futuristic Outfits to Tennis-Inspired Ensembles

There is no denying that 2024 has already been busy and booked for Zendaya. Since the beginning of the year, the Dune star has dominated the box office with her blockbuster sequel, received not one but two Vogue covers (the American and British editions), and been tapped to play Tashi Duncan, a powerful tennis competitor at the center of a steamy love triangle in her latest and much anticipated film Challengers which releases in theaters this week, putting Zendaya squarely in the spotlight.

Zendaya’s many projects have translated into a plethora of red-carpet appearances and press calls, which in turn have resulted in a wealth of high fashion serves from the actor and her longtime collaborator and stylist Law Roach. While Zendaya, a veritable style superstar, could always be counted on for a bold, experimental and show-stopping sartorial moment, her current looks have elevated the practice of dressing up for the press tour to an art.

In Zendaya and Roach’s capable hands, the themes of her movies cleverly translate into clothing, whether that’s a futuristic silver glambot suit sourced from the Mugler archives for the London premiere of Dune: Part Two or a subversively preppy Thom Browne gown that riffs on tennis whites for the London premiere of Challengers. Her fashion choices feel less like promotion than they do an extension of her work as an artist, with clothes as her medium, which might explain why this year, watching her press tour has been almost as much fun as heading to theaters to watch her movies.

With that in mind, we’ve rounded up all of Zendaya’s best looks from the red carpet so far in 2024.
