I didn’t attend Coachella, but I’m guessing the crowd lost it when Zendaya stepped on stage during Labrinth’s set. In recent years, Zendaya has stepped away from music to focus on acting projects, so it’s safe to say no one expected to see her with a microphone in hand during the second weekend of the arts and music festival. And in true Zendaya fashion, she looked perfect.
For the appearance, Zendaya wore a pretty dress trend from the early ’00s that is experiencing something of a comeback: the ruffled minidress. The pink dress featured a fitted bodice and a bow at the chest. She made it look even more fashion-forward by layering a white tank underneath it. (FYI, Miu Miu can be credited with making T-shirt layering a thing this season.) Zendaya paired the dress with thigh-high black boots, which dampened the sweetness of the dress a tad, either unintentionally or intentionally.
