Zendaya's dress plunges all the way past her belly button to... a tennis ball?

Take a look at Zendaya's latest red carpet looks and it's hard not to notice a theme. While on the Dune: Part Two press tour she repeatedly served sci-fi chic in ensembles not dissimilar from the clothes worn by her character in the film. But a new movie release means a new aesthetic.

Now, midway through promoting her upcoming tennis drama Challengers, her attire is fitting for Centre Court at Wimbledon. We're talking tennis whites in every interpretation: a strapless white dress for the Paris premiere, a white blazer and maxi skirt co-ord in Rome, a custom white tennis-themed gown embroidered with tiny rackets worn to the London event and a white retro halter tennis dress for Milan.

However, for Zendaya's latest Challengers appearance, she opted for a more literal take on tennis-core in her custom Celia Kritharioti gown adorned with an actual tennis ball.

Photographed at the LA premiere after party, Zendaya wowed in a daring dress that featured a halterneck design. As well as being almost completely backless, the dress' neckline plunged all the way past her belly button and featured a central thigh-high leg slit for good measure. Completing the look was a tennis ball, positioned at her waist where the neckline finished.

Whether you think a tennis ball is fluorescent yellow or neon green, there's no doubt to what inspired the vibrant hue of Zendaya's gown as the colourway was a perfect match to the 3D embellishment. She had on white court shoes, with diamond stud earrings and a diamond ring worn on her middle finger her only accessories. As for her beauty look, Zendaya pulled her hair back into a high ballerina bun and opted for neutral glowy makeup.

Although Zendaya did previously wear a green silk suit for a second press event in Paris, nothing she's worn has been quite so obvious as this latest look. Talk about taking the the tennis theme to the max...
