The cutout trend just got a major endorsement at the Oscars. Zendaya and her stylist Law Roach chose a stunning custom Valentino dress with a statement-making cutout beneath the bust. It's hard to choose what to focus on: the gown's vibrant and cheery color, its sultry ab-baring slit, or Zendaya's 183 carats worth of Bulgari jewelry. So let's just admire every inch of this stellar look.

Zendaya went matchy-matchy in a yellow face mask and coordinating canary Jimmy Choo heels, so it's no surprise that her jewelry was also in the same color. Zendaya wore a Bulgari High Jewelry necklace in platinum with a cushion-cut fancy vivid yellow diamond along with hundreds of white diamonds. Her Bulgari High Jewelry rings and earrings also featured yellow diamonds for a grand total of 183 carats. Scroll down to see Zendaya's Oscars 2021 look.

Erin Fitzpatrick
Senior News Editor

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of senior news editor (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
