In fashion, there are certain mainstays that will frankly never die—the floral dress being one of them, especially during the spring and summer seasons. But as recent runway trends have shown, florals can indeed be reworked to feel new again. Take the prairie dress, for instance, which has become a beloved silhouette of celebrities such as Selena Gomez. The latest star to endorse the message is Zendaya. Stepping out for the premiere of Smallfoot, the actress wore a modern take on the sweet print that was youthful and decidedly current.
For her appearance on the step and repeat, Zendaya wore Michael Kors’s flamingo and persimmon sunflower dress in pink and red. The graphic style is brand new, having just appeared on the designer’s Spring 2019 runway at New York Fashion Week. The slight ruffling along the V-neck lent a romantic touch, while the pleated skirt conveyed a sense of effortlessness—plus, bonus points for the contrasting belt in yellow and green. She kept the rest of the ensemble simple with white pumps by Christian Louboutin that felt light and fresh.
