Zendaya cut an ethereal figure when she led a cavalcade of stars at the Essence Black Women In Hollywood event on Thursday.

Held at the Academy Museum Of Motion Pictures in Los Angeles, the gala welcomed a dazzling array of boldface names in the run-up to the Oscars.

But the buzziest among them was Zendaya, fresh off the release of her hotly anticipated new film Dune: Part Two starring Timothee Chalamet.

She strode across the wine-red carpet in a sheer silver corset that betrayed a hint of cleavage and emphasized her enviably lithe frame.

Wearing her hair in a fashionable drenched look, she augmented the ensemble with a gleaming metallic choker that brought back memories of Dune’s sci-fi aesthetic.
