The show-stopping piece included "an ivory silk crêpe top and fluorescent orange scuba, organza, tundra and taffetas skirt," according to Valentino. And if the skirt wasn't resplendent enough, Zendaya also wore Bulgari jewelry, with Diva’s Dream multi-colored gemstone earrings, paired with Fiorever pink gold rings. She was styled by Law Roach, with hair by Ursula Stephen and makeup by Sheika Daley.
While Zendaya proved that orange is the new black, she was also the recipient of the SeeHer Award, which recognizes "a woman who embodies the values set forth by the SeeHer movement to push boundaries, defy stereotypes and acknowledge the importance of authentic portrayals of women across the entertainment landscape."
The award-winning actress accepted this esteemed award in her second Valentino piece of the night—a black, spaghetti-strap gown adorned with sequins.
Valentino shared Zendaya's acceptance speech, saying: "Zendaya is honored with the @criticschoice #SeeHer award. @zendaya accepted the special SeeHer Award at this year’s Critics Choice Awards (@criticschoice) wearing an evening dress from #ValentinoRomanPalazzo #ValentinoDiVas Stylist: @luxurylaw."
