Zendaya has Breathed New Life into Classic Tenniscore

Zendaya, known for her themed promotional outfits, has taken her styling game to new heights with tenniscore ensembles for her film “Challengers.” Styled by Law Roach, she has seamlessly integrated elements of her character—a former tennis prodigy turned coach—into her wardrobe.

At the UK premiere on April 10, Zendaya dazzled in a Thom Browne gown adorned with embroidered tennis racquets, complemented by a classic white bow and sparkling Bvlgari jewels. The film, directed by Luca Guadagnino and co-starring Mike Faist and Josh O’Connor, offers a perfect backdrop for her thematic dressing approach.

This isn’t the first time Zendaya has employed method dressing; she previously adopted similar strategies during the “Dune: Part Two” promotions. Her recent appearances have significantly bolstered the ‘tenniscore’ trend. Starting with her viral appearance at the BNP Paribas Open in California, where she sported a chic white tennis skirt and sweater, Zendaya has consistently embraced the sport’s aesthetic. In Paris, she opted for a tennis green co-ord set, and in Australia, she turned heads with a sequinned gown reflecting a tennis player’s silhouette.

Her standout look in Rome featured a custom Loewe dress inspired by tennis gear, complete with tennis-ball heels, underscoring her commitment to thematic dressing. In Paris, she paired a Louis Vuitton chequered coat-dress with white pumps and an Alice band, echoing vintage tennis fashion.

Zendaya’s fashion-forward approach not only highlights her role in “Challengers” but also marks a significant moment for the intersection of sports and high fashion. With tennis aesthetics gaining momentum, Zendaya’s appearances have played a crucial role in revitalizing the tenniscore trend, further underscored by a surge in tennis-themed fashion items and pleated skirts, according to trend forecasting agency WGSN.

Tenniscore is basically a fashion aesthetic that draws inspiration from the classic and sporty attire typically worn on the tennis courts. It’s characterized by clean lines, a preppy vibe, and a palette that often includes whites, pastels, and the occasional pop of color like navy or green. Key elements of this style include pleated skirts, polo shirts, cable-knit sweaters, and varsity jackets, paired often with accessories like visors, tennis shoes, and sweatbands.

Today, tenniscore is more than just sportswear; it’s a fashion statement that embodies a lifestyle of health, vitality, and effortless elegance.

As sports and luxury fashion continue to merge, Zendaya’s innovative style celebrates the dynamic fusion of athleticism and glamour, proving that the tenniscore trend is here to stay and to slay!
