The 26-year-old wore a floor-length strapless black Valentino gown to the TV event, where she made history as the youngest two-time Emmy winner after winning Outstanding Lead Actress for her role in Euphoria.
The actor accessorised her red carpet look with a diamond necklace and earrings, and wore her hair in a half-up, half-down style.
Fans were quick to praise the Spider-man: No Way Home star’s look on social media, with one Twitter user writing: “ZENDAYA!!! Thank you GOD!!! Finally someone brought the FASHION.”
Another added: “Whatever Valentino is paying Zendaya for their partnership, they should triple it (and tip extra to Law Roach, too) because this look is INCREDIBLE.”
“Zendaya ain’t wear[ing] that dress to not win,” a third person wrote.
Others comments on the pockets featured in Zendaya’s gown, with one person writing: “The way Zendaya had her hands in her pockets all night is such a f***ing mood girlies [sic] just know dress pockets are elite.”
For the HBO Max afterparty, Zendaya changed into a red floor length gown with long sleeves and a deep coop neck.
The actor has had a long-standing partnership with Valentino. Last year she wore a “spider dress” for the Spider-man: No Way Home premiere.
The floor-length gown had a plunging neckline, a low back and a thigh-high split.
The beige gown was covered in black spiderwebs and the actor wore a black lace mask for the red carpet.
