Zendaya stuns in butterfly dress at Greatest Showman premiere

If you haven't heard all that much about actress Zendaya, don't worry - you will. The 21-year-old multi-talented performer joined co-stars Hugh Jackman and Zac Efron for the premiere of their movie, The Greatest Showman, at Sydney's Star City casino last night, clad in a show-stopping outfit that could best be described as tropical butterfly inspired.

Indeed, the Moschino dress, from designer Jeremy Scott's 2018 spring collection, featured a thigh split and resembled one huge butterfly wing, which is entirely appropriate, given that the actress plays a high-wire trapeze artist in the movie, based on P.T Barnum's circus.

Zendaya worked back her orange, yellow and black dress with black high heels, and a simple up-do, featuring old school glamorous waves. She finished off the look with generous amounts of yellow eye shadow and small, stud-like earrings.

Zac Efron, who was looking dapper himself last night in a fitted blue suit, and plays Zendaya's love interest in the movie, has not been shy in his adoration of his co-star, calling their on-screen kiss his favourite movie kiss ever.

"There's this unspoken kind of relationship they have that's communicated through looks and kind of electric" is how Efron explained it in an interview. "At that point in the 1850s, that relationship was very taboo. Not cool."

But while Efron may be full of effusive praise for Zendaya, it's actually his other co-star, Rebecca Ferguson, that he is rumoured to be dating. Efron posted a photo of them together to his Instagram on December 2, captioning it with a comment,

"WTF were you thinking dude?! Look at her!!"
