Yesterday, all eyes were on Union Station in Los Angeles as the Oscars played out for the world to watch. Despite the pandemic, the star-studded event went on in person with appropriate Covid-19 regulations and safe distancing being observed throughout.
The 93rd Academy Awards was certainly a respite from months of cancelled or virtual events, and it was an extremely exciting one for fashionistas who got to see some of the best in fashion as opposed to the loungewear that we have gotten used to.
One of the most stunning gowns on the red carpet, however, was Zendaya's vibrant lemon yellow Valentino haute couture gown which was reminiscent of some of Cher's most iconic looks in the past. However, her custom dress was not the only thing unique about her Oscars look.
Eagle-eyed viewers noticed that the singer-actress had kept her mask on for most of the event, even during the televised segments.
While Zendaya's dress was certainly the main event, what was really special about her outfit was that she wore a matching canary-yellow mask and that she kept on even during the broadcast which was something she did not have to do.
During the event, Zendaya was consistently seen wearing her mask. This was despite the fact that masks were not required when the cameras were on. Guests only had to don their masks when the cameras stopped filming.
However, Zendaya responsibly kept her mask on and has been praised by fans for setting a great example to all.
