    Inspiration: Joey’s stylist Jared Eng put the star in a Prada silver dress that had a classic silhouette, so he suggested a pop of color.

    Also using Urban Decay for the eyes, Allan Avendano used Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in three different colors: Deep End, Overdrive, and Mildew.

    5. Zendaya shut down the carpet in waist-length braids, pink glossy lips, and a smoky eye. A queen, I say!
