Zendaya did not come to play for the premiere of “Dune” during the 78th Venice International Film Festival. Her ensemble was breathtaking, also considering how much it went with the theme and the color palette of the movie.

Coleman stunned in a custom Balmain wet-looking gown with thigh-high leg slit, crafted in sculpturally structured leather. When it was on the red carpet it barely moved, hinting at a thicker material–every doubt went away once the maison confirmed it was made out of leather; the design was inspired by the Fall 2020 Ready-to-Wear collection.

Zendaya adorned her neck with a Bulgari Magnifica Serpenti Hypnotic Emerald necklace which featured a staggering 93.83 cts of cabochon-cut emerald, Bulgari stud earrings, a Bulgari Cabochon Emerald ring and nude Christian LouboutinSo Kate‘ pumps in the style ‘Nat‘.

According to Lucia Silvestri, Bulgari‘s Jewelry Creative director, “the 93 carats of Colombian cabochon captured her attention for their inner strong energy and inspired her to a create a Serpenti (snake) that gracefully treasures into its jaws the incredible emerald.”

Jean-Christophe Babin, Bulgari‘s CEO, stated that “the necklace required 1,800 hours to be completed”. Its body featured pavé-set diamonds, as well as diamond baguettes and emerald cabochons, gracefully sitting around the neck thanks to the intricate artisanal constructions guaranteeing a comfortable fit. “The snake, Bulgari‘s icon, symbolizes eternal life and feminine seduction.”
