Zendaya Wore Socks With No Shoes On The "Euphoria" Red Carpet Because Her Dress Couldn't Be Lengthened

"When you don't have room to let the hem down."

Look, it need not be said that Zendaya is already a red carpet icon at this point — her work with stylist Law Roach is practically legendary. So, is anyone surprised that she ate up the Euphoria Season 2 red carpet?? No????

I say, writing this in the same sweatpants I've worn for the past few days.

Sure, it's a tad more understated than some of Zendaya's other looks, but what can I say — I'm a simple woman when it comes to a scalloped neckline. And Zendaya!

However, on Zendaya's Instagram, she shared a backstage video zoomed in on her feet walking in the dress — and she's just wearing socks underneath.

"When you don't have room to let the hem down. How would they know?" She wrote in the caption.

Am I to therefore understand that Zendaya just walked the entire red carpet without shoes on???

I'm about to look like a real fool on the internet if I've entirely misunderstood.

The look is vintage Valentino from its spring-summer 1992 collection, which, if you want to feel quite old, was actually four years before Zendaya was born.

As Zendaya and Law both noted on their Instagram stories, the look was originally rocked by Linda Evangelista — who also paired the dress with red hair.

This isn't the only Zendaya/Valentino look of late — who can forget her Spider-Man premiere web dress?
