Zendaya’s 2019 Met Gala cinderella gown
25-year-old Emmy-winning actress Zendaya was doing magic tricks in a glowing Cinderella gown at the 2019 Met Gala as she walked the red carpet in a baby blue Tommy Hilfiger dress.
Using technology hidden beneath the skirt, her transforming dress changed colour, lit up and certainly stole the show.
Euphoria‘s star arrived at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art wearing a full-length gray dress with puffed sleeves modeled on the blue ballgown worn by Cinderella in the Disney cartoon.
The look was even complete with a Fairy Godmother as Zendaya was accompanied by her stylist, Law Roach.
At the entrance to the event, Roach waved a smoke-emitting wand and the dress slowly transformed from bottom to top, changing from a gray color to a glowing pale blue shade.
Dezeen reports that Tommy Hilfiger described the dress as “an animatronic crystal-grey silk evening gown constructed to enable both visual and physical transformations of the silhouette from understated to dramatic”.
The designer dress is still iconic three years later
It has been three years since Zendaya sparkled down the 2019 red carpet and fans still can’t get over her magical Met Gala look.
“There’s a hole in my heart that’s in the shape of Zendaya’s Cinderella gown.”
