Zendaya transforms into a butterfly at the 'Greatest Showman' Sydney premiere

A style chameleon, Zendaya makes her biggest red-carpet transformation yet.

The actress morphed into a butterfly (kind of) while attending the Greatest Showman premiere down under in Sydney, Australia, on Wednesday. Styled by Law Roach, Zendaya stole the show in an orange butterfly dress from Moschino's spring 2018 collection designed by Jeremy Scott. The insect-inspired gown was given a sexy spin with a strapless neckline and thigh-high slit. Classic finger waves, courtesy of hairstylist Ursula Stephen, completed the playful, yet sophisticated ensemble.

Prior to the step and repeat, Roach teased the look on Instagram with a photo of an actual butterfly and the caption, "Wait for it." Clearly he wasn't kidding.
