The new decade has only just begun, but Zendaya is already proving that she'll continue dominating best-dressed lists for years to come. All eyes were on the "Euphoria" star on Sunday night as she stepped out on the red carpet at the Critics' Choice Awards in Santa Monica, California. Zendaya sported a hot-pink breastplate by Tom Ford for the awards show, looking every bit the intergalactic warrior woman.
The structured asymmetrical top featured a metallic sheen and hot-pink straps along the back that added an extra dose of modernity to the ensemble.
Zendaya paired the standout piece with a matching maxi skirt, along with hot-pink Christian Louboutin heels and pink eye shadow. She also sported subtle diamond earrings and rings from Mateo New York and Djula. The 23-year-old star, who was nominated for best actress in a drama series, wore her hair in long braids for the event — making sure to give them a good flip for the cameras.

"Jesus Christ," Ariana Grande wrote in the comments. "Incredible Law." Roach and Cherie Balch, the founder of vintage clothing site Shrimpton Couture, also noted the fashion history behind Zendaya's breastplate. The Tom Ford piece was inspired by the breastplates Issey Miyake and Yves Saint Laurent designed in 1980.
And this isn't the first time we've seen a star in the Tom Ford design. Gwyneth Paltrow also wore the hot-pink breastplate for her recent Harper's Bazaar US cover, styled by the magazine's style director Joanna Hillman and photographed by Zoey Grossman.
