A basic fact: it's nearly summer in Australia. As such, for an evening out in Sydney on Thursday, Zendaya combined all of the glamour of a holiday-minded beauty moment with a few warm weather cues that conspired to subvert seasonal expectations. First came the actress's trademark tumble of brunette curls, brushed up, appealingly rumpled, raked deeply to one side, and left to fall freeform toward her waist. But the real sunny skies cue came in the form of a strategic showing of skin: a toned tummy, peeking from between Zendaya's abbreviated suit jacket and matching white skirt.
The ab reveal teamed with a plunging neckline to make the case for subtle evening exhibitions, particularly if you find yourself in the Southern Hemisphere. A smoky eye ensured the moment skewed red-carpet-ready, while a swipe of glassy pink lipgloss reinforced the insouciant summertime vibes. But the main takeaway? If you're searching for a look sure to turn heads during the year's last lap, simply channel Zendaya's seasonal switch-up and give your abs some air.
