Zendaya Promotes Her New Film, Challengers, With Tennis-Inspired Looks

She wears tennis-inspired gowns and jewels at many of her premieres.




ZENDAYA HAS BECOME a fashion icon and with her stylist, Law Roach, has created looks that have set trends across the generations. It also doesn’t hurt that she is a Bulgari ambassador and is as charming as she is beautiful. For her newest film, Challengers, her character is Tashi Duncan, a tennis prodigy turned coach after a career-ending injury. The story also reveals a love triangle when she marries and begins to coach Art (Mike Faist). A few year later, Art then has to play her former boyfriend Patrick (Josh O’Connor). And that is when the film reveals its multiple layers.

But let’s get back to the fashion and, of course, the jewelry. Every outfit she has worn on her press tour, from a range of designers, has related to tennis in some way. Zendaya is known to promote her movies by wearing designs that speak to their themes. Although she has kept her jewelry minimal for the tour, it has revolved around elevated tennis necklaces and bracelets created by Bulgari.

Following on the Barbiecore trend, tenniscore will be sure to catch on in different ways in fashion. And this is for certain: It will bring the newest iterations of the tennis bracelets and necklaces out at prices points across the board. The evolving trend will most likely get stronger.

As an aside, let’s not forget that Chris Evert is still collaborating with Monica Rich Kosann on their tennis bracelet line. Evert lost her diamond bracelet in 1978 during a U.S. Open match, which was halted until she found it. What was known as a line bracelet dating from the 1920s throughout most of the 20th century became known as the tennis bracelet after that event. By collaborating with Kosann, Evert finally had a distinctive role in her own story, which she had been left out of for decades. And the collection is a beauty.

I can’t wait to see the film, which opens the last week in April.




She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
