We've seen matching sets done in every way, shape, and form at this point. Printed! Chambray! For work! For dates! Perhaps that's left you slightly fatigued and looking for alternative pre-coordinated ensembles. Well, Zendaya is giving us a reason to not give up on the look just yet, thanks to a statement-making get-up she wore Thursday night.
The performer stepped out at Rihanna's Diamond Ball in a striped Rosie Assoulin two-piece from the (made-for-TLC?) spring '16 collection. Though the one-shoulder top and pants coordinate, this isn't your run-of-the-mill matching set. After all, we're talking about Zendaya, fashion wunderkind, wearing Rosie Assoulin, maker of the fanciest of fancy pants. This fresh take on matchy-matchy dressing involves a cropped one-shoulder top paired with high-waisted ball-gown trousers. Yup, ball-gown trousers: Those are a thing.
Her voluminous, extra-wide-legged pants take up the same expanse of space as a ball gown's skirt, except they've got the practical walkability of pants. They're big, they're elegant, and they're dramatic. She served up a few poses to highlight the silhouette on the red carpet. A slightly slouchy blouse, folded at the sleeve and knotted at the hem for a laissez-faire sensibility, paired with extra-big bottoms — we'd like to see more of this, please! Temperature check for pants on the red carpet: Still way hot.
