Zendaya is my best MET surprise.

I mean, finally. This is what we’re talking about when we talk about the MET Gala. This is a COSTUME, but also a dress that you fervently wish you could wear in real life. She looks like the Khaleesi. 

Yes, I know that this is not something that could work on someone who’s older than Zendaya, which is practically everyone. I get that a micro-mini that looks kind of like a spaceship with a long train and gorgeous spiky bracelets that match her spiky headdress is not going to be a look you can always wear. But I love it so much, and I might scrounge for something to do this Halloween so that I can dress just like her.

Also, in looking for different angles of this dress, I found some video of Zendaya signing autographs and meeting fans before she walked the carpet, and she is so HAPPY. She can pose with the best of them but when the camera’s moving and she’s smiling, she looks like she’s having a ball, which as we know is my new requirement for people attending press events. You can whine to your friends and your stylist about what a drag this all is but when I see you on the carpet you better be having a blast. 

Anyway, you’ve all witnessed it – my crush on Zendaya was born here and now. Long may it live.
