Zendaya's Iconic Look with the Judith Couture Bag

Actress and singer Zendaya is known for her individual style and looks just as good taking a casual stroll down the street as she does on the red carpet. Whether she is rocking a couture gown or relaxing in an oversized jumpsuit, she always looks a million dollars.

However, it was her appearance at the Met Gala in 2019 that really got people talking and cemented her position as a style icon. Not only did she wear one of the most stunning dresses of the night, but she also paired her outfit with a selection of eye-catching accessories, including a Judith Leiber Couture clutch.

Whether you are a fan of Zendaya or you can't get enough of couture clutches, read on to check out Zendaya's iconic look with the ultimate Judith Couture bag.

What did Zendaya wear to the Met Gala?

Over the years, Zendaya has turned many heads at the Meta Gala, but it was undeniably her outfit choice in 2019 that exceeded all expectations. Dressed as a modern-day Cinderella, Zendaya looked sensational in a Tommy Hilfiger gown that boasted a powder blue tulle overlay, corseted body, and exaggerated sleeves. Beneath the stunning princess-style dress, the iconic glass slippers made an appearance as she "lost one" on the way in.

She completed this showstopping look with blue eyeshadow, which matched a blue headband sitting on her blonde locks, styled in an up-do look with a fringe sweeping across her face. To complete the look, she added an understated black choker.

To make sure all eyes were firmly on her, Zendaya's gown started to twinkle in front of the camera and slowly lit up from the bottom when she waved her magic wand. One of the most truly mesmerizing moments for that year's Met Gala, every other celebrity and A-list star will have to work pretty hard to beat this iconic performance.

The Finishing Magic Touch

What we have yet to mention, of course, was her choice of handbag. Never one to shy away from bling, Zendaya's Judith Leiber Couture clutch was arguably the star of the show, complementing her choice of dress impeccably. As with many of our Judith Leiber creations, this clutch didn't resemble a standard clutch shape – instead, the star carefully paired the dress with something truly memorable from the Disney story: a pumpkin carriage. The Judith Leiber Cinderella Pumpkin was adorned with thousands of handset silver crystals that sparkled for the whole world to see and even featured a custom design with a Z on the front.

A replica of Cinderella's iconic Magic Carriage, this bespoke work of art was handcrafted by a skilled artisan and featured over 10,000 crystals as well as 24K gold plated crystal and a hand-cured 24K gold plated bow ornament. This unique pumpkin clutch also boasts a metallic leather-lined interior and a simple push-down enclosure complete with a semi-precious stone.

Zendaya chose to hold this stunning designer clutch elegantly and delicately between a couple of her fingers, but it can also be worn casually draped over your shoulder or clasped tightly to your chest if you style this stunning clutch, too.

While the Cinderella Carriage handbag has been retired, if you’re looking to recreate Zendaya’s look, our designers created a Miniature Carriage to resemble the perfect piece for a sweet and romantic fairy tale moment.

Zendaya at the Met Gala – Her Most Memorable Outfits

Even before Zendaya caused a media storm with her Cinderella-inspired frock and iconic look using our Cinderella Pumpkin clutch, she always made an impressive entrance at each year's Met Gala. Let's take a closer look at some of her most memorable outfits throughout the years and what we think is the perfect bag to pair it with if she would wear it again.

Met Gala 2018

Zendaya showed up at the Met Gala in 2018 in a sparkling silver Versace dress that was made to look like a body of armor. To complement the night's theme, "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination", her dress featured a daring thigh split and multiple cut-outs.

Our Perfect Bag Choice:Keeping in line with the overall look, a Classic Slim Slide Grey or a silver Zip Pouch could have been perfect to work in harmony with the dress and not take away from this stunning look.

Meta Gala 2017

With the event titled "Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garcons: Art of the In-Between, Zendaya wore a striking Dolce & Gabbana gown in a red and yellow floral print. Makeup wise, she rocked a bold red lip and left her hair loose.

Our Perfect Bag Choice:The dress was big, bold, and beautiful, with plenty of colors popping out. To keep it simple, the Coral Classic Slim Slide could be a perfect pairing, but to go even bolder, the Parrot Scarlet could be the winner here.  

Meta Gala 2016

Zendaya's metallic Michael Kors dress was the perfect fit for this year's Met Gala theme, which was "Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology". Featuring a bold one-shoulder cut-out design, Zendaya rocked a futuristic vibe.

Our Perfect Bag Choice:The Serpent Snakeskin Clutch Black, featuring a crystal snake on a black leather clutch, gives both the dress and the bag to stand out in their own way.

Other Celebrities Who Love Judith Leiber Handbags

It's not just Zendaya who loves the Judith Leiber brand. A multitude of other famous faces also can't get enough of these unique couture creations.

Take Kim Kardashian, for instance.

In fact, the entire Kardashian family loves their quirky designs, including Kris Jenner and daughters Kourtney, Khloè, Kendall, and Kylie.
