Rainbow right.

The Dress: A strapless, two-piece ensemble from the spring 2016 collection of Lebanese designer Rani Zakhem, whose glamorous gowns also have been seen on Carrie Underwood and Hilary Duff.

The Wearer: Singer/actress/shoe mogul Zendaya.

The Event: The premiere of HBO's Confirmation on Thursday night. The 19-year-old was joined on the red carpet by a Dolce & Gabbana-clad Kerry Washington, who stars as Anita Hill in the biopic.

Why We Dig: Zendaya and her stylist, Law Roach, have built a reputation as sartorial risk-takers (it takes guts to rock a mullet), but this time, the actress' demure choice proved that she can do serious elegance, too. Her two-piece number by Rani Zakhem is an effortless blend of a sophisticated, classy silhouette and a playful, paint-swatch print that adds a touch of youthful whimsy. The actress pulled the look together with a sleek, center-parted do and lavender pumps with gold stiletto heels.
