It is every fashionista's dream.

From the moment Zendaya was nominated for a Critics Choice Award, we knew she was going to wow us when she debuted her virtual red carpet look.

And she didn’t disappoint. The Malcolm & Marie star wowed in not one - but two incredible looks.

Zendaya twirls in the dreamiest Maison Valentino Haute Couture ensemble

Zendaya first appeared in her Zoom square on the show in a sequined dress as she picked up her 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," according to the Critics Choice Association. 

After the show wrapped, the starlet changed out of that dress and into a statement-making look that appeared for the first time on Instagram close to midnight. Zendaya's stylist, Law Roach, gave a full glimpse of the stunning ensemble when he shared a video of the actress twirling around in it (Zendaya reposted it in her Instagram Story).

Law completed the look with diamond drop Bulgari earrings, and the Euphoria star rocked her hair in a braided look with half of it braided into a top knot and the rest down, sleek, and straight. 

Nearly twelve hours later, the image architect revealed a clear photo of Zendaya's Maison Valentino ensemble Monday morning - and it was every fashionista's dream come true. Fans went wild in the comments, with one writing, "a literal princess OMG," and another adding, "wow so gorgeous!"

Zendaya was just of the many style stars who stunned at the virtual Critics Choice Awards Sunday night. 


Emma Corrin wore one of the night's best looks

The Critics' Choice red carpet is usually more laid-back than that of the Golden Globes, with stars opting for more casual-chic stylings instead of jaw-dropping gowns. But this time fashionistas brought their style A-games from home however they wished, sporting structured mini dresses, power suits, and glam gowns too. 

Such was the case for Emma Corrin who wowed in a structured black Schiaparelli couture black velvet mini dress paired with black patent leather pumps and sheer black stockings. The Crown star’s stylist, Harry Lambert, completed the look with eye-popping, oversized pearl earrings that matched the jeweled embellishments that surrounded the cutouts of her dress.
