No one can deny that Zendaya and her longtime stylist, Law Roach, are on a roll. The duo just wrapped up a press tour for Dune: Part Two that, between its archival Givenchy and Mugler, custom Louis Vuitton and Bottega Veneta, and straight-off-the-runway Alaïa, more than gave Margot Robbie’s iconic Barbie ensembles a run for their money. And now, immediately after, they’re kicking off another, this time for Zendaya’s new Luca Guadagnino film Challengers, co-starring West Side Story‘s Mike Faist and The Crown‘s Josh O’Connor.

The first stop on the tour for the steamy and high-adrenaline tennis flick was Australia, and not that they ever do, but fashion‘s favorite stylist-actress partnership didn’t disappoint. For the occasion, the two worked with Loewe designer Jonathan Anderson to craft a custom gown and matching shoes that touched on the movie’s theme, showcasing a distinct tennis motif on the front. But that wasn’t even the most eye-catching part of the dress. With its plunging neckline and a thigh-high slit that perfectly showcased Zendaya’s sparkling green pumps, the dress was an obvious first knockout for the tour. And I do not doubt that there will be plenty more where it came from as the Challengers cast make their way around the world ahead of the film’s release on April 26.
