Zendaya Channels Famous Disney Character in Dazzling Gold & Purple Outfit

First, we saw Zendaya channel the villainous Shego from Disney Channel's Kim Possible at the NAACP Image Awards. Then, the Euphoria star gave major Cheetah Girls vibes while rocking her fabulous tiger-print suit at Paris Fashion Week. And now, the actress is serving up another memorable look that reminds us of yet another famous Disney character.

This weekend, the 26-year-old star attended the Nita Mukesh Ambani Cultural Centre Gala in Mumbai, India, and to say that her outfit stole the show would be an understatement. Zendaya stepped out in a purple-and-gold top with a sparkly custom sari gown, designed by Rahul Mishra. And if you ask us, it looks like the actress is totally channeling Megara from Hercules.

The cartoon character is known for donning similar regal colors—like her classic Grecian gown, which features a purple belt and a long skirt.


Zendaya modernized the outfit with a golden bralette and a dark violet skirt, which featured embroidered embellishments and a trailing train. To complete the look, she accessorized with matching bracelets and wore her hair in a simple, low bun.

The actress appeared on the red carpet with her partner and fellow actor, Tom Holland, who sported a classic black tux. Also joining Zendaya on the red carpet was celebrity stylist Law Roach.

While speaking with Harper's Bazaar in 2022, she discussed the impact of her many outfits and what it's like to work with Roach. She said, "I’ve always loved fashion, and I’ve found that it’s an incredibly fun way to express myself. I definitely have a strong point of view on what I’m wearing and love to collaborate with my stylist Law [Roach]."

Here's hoping they'll come up with plenty more fabulous, Disney-themed looks.
