- Zendaya posed for photos with Tom Holland ahead of the “Spider-Man: No Way Home” premiere.
- The actress wore an outfit seemingly inspired by the “Spider-Man” villain Venom to the event.
- The look isn’t the only villain-inspired outfit she’s worn on the film’s press tour.
Zendaya may play Mary Jane in the “Spider-Man” movies, but she appeared to channel an iconic villain from the franchise for her latest red-carpet appearance.
On Sunday, the actress, 25, appeared at a photo call for “Spider-Man: No Way Home” — set to premiere on December 17 — in an outfit that seemingly paid homage to Venom, one of the most famous villains from the “Spider-Man” universe.
Her double-breasted blazer was embroidered with crystals, coordinating with a pair of black, thigh-high boots that were also similarly bedazzled.
The crystals created a web-like effect, offsetting Zendaya’s crystal spider earrings designed by Jacob & Co.
At first glance, Zendaya’s outfit may look as if it’s simply nodding to “Spider-Man” because of the web imagery.
But the dark color of her tights and jacket looks like a reference to Venom, who is typically depicted as wearing a black version of Spider-Man’s red-and-blue suit.
Venom isn’t the only “Spider-Man” villain Zendaya has seemingly paid tribute to with her looks in recent weeks.
At the Ballon d’Or ceremony on November 29, Zendaya wore a black Roberto Cavalli gown that had a statement back.
The embellishment on the back of the dress mimicked the shape of the spine. The intricate back piece looked similar to the device Dr. Octopus wears in the “Spider-Man” universe.
The suit nodded to the Green Goblin, as it consisted of his signature colors.
Zendaya appeared to confirm the look was supposed to nod to the Goblin on her Instagram story, captioning a selfie of the look “Goblin.”
