The Euphoria star was introduced to us in the Netflix movie in a stunning metallic halter-neck dress, which she had on for the majority of her evening with Malcolm.

However, throughout the night as she gets dressed into comfier clothes, the actress puts on a gorgeous kimono, and it turns out there’s a cute little story behind it!

Taking to Twitter to talk about the styling of Marie’s character, Netflix Film’s account wrote: “Marie’s dress and Malcolm’s suit were overseen by the actors’ personal stylists, Law Roach and Samantha McMillen.

“But Marie's vintage kimono? Purchased by Zendaya months before the shoot, with no intention of being part of Marie’s wardrobe until it suddenly seemed perfect for it.”
