Zendaya Coleman in Chloé – ‘Black Nativity’ New York Premiere

Zendaya Coleman in Chloé - 'Black Nativity' New York Premiere

Zendaya Coleman attended the ‘Black Nativity’ premiere at the Apollo Theater in New York City yesterday evening.

While I was fan of her last look, this one doesn’t quite do it for me.

She wore a black, sleeveless turtleneck crop top with a white polka-dot tulle skirt from Chloé Fall 2013, which she styled with a Veinarde biker jacket and turquoise Christian Louboutin ‘So Kate’ patent pumps.

As you may remember, this skirt has been previously worn by both Olivia Palermo and Zhang Ziyi, and not with much positive review.

On Zendaya, it seems like the styling was supposed to be a play on sweet versus tough, but it comes off as a bit too contrived and clunky instead. Perhaps a shorter jacket length and sandal would have lent some lightness to the look.

What do you think — did she wear this Chloé skirt better than Olivia Palermo and Zhang Ziyi, or should this article of clothing be retired once and for all?

    WTF? I swear this look is going in five different directions. The hair is suited for a gown, the turtleneck says Sunday school, the motorcycle jacket is wannabe-Gwen Stefani, and the skirt and pumps belong at a summer daytime awards show.

    She’s too young to be wearing so much makeup.

    The turtleneck and the leather jacket look plain ridiculous with this skirt and it needs to retire anyway.

    Ahh, that skirt again. I like the winter wonderland effect it creates, but it’s quite a challenge to style.

    I really like the skirt especially pair with those pretty shoes. However, something is off with either the turleneck or the jacket. If the top was switched, I would’ve liked this look.

    This skirt should never have had three outings–it is just wrong–the idea is interesting, but it doesn’t work. I see where she is going, but the skirt is a mess.

    It looks like winter from the waist up and like spring from the waist down. It’s not working.

    I don’t like the way she has styled this shirt. The black top and jacket feel too heavy for the skirt, but they could have been balanced with a black pair of shoes. The turquoise pumps were supposed to add a pop of colour to the look, but they simply don’t match.

    The jacket, the skirt, the pumps, nothing goes together.

    IMO, this skirt only worked on Olivia Palermo.

      I agree. The jacket makes her look boxy and the shoes does not work with the look.

        Agreed this look is not a good look
