Zendaya’s Tennis Ball Gown Steals the Show at “Challengers” Premiere Afterparty

Zendaya’s Tennis-Inspired Fashion Reigns Supreme at “Challengers” Premiere Afterparty

Zendaya, the star of the upcoming tennis-themed film “Challengers,” once again showcased her impeccable style at the afterparty for the film’s Los Angeles premiere. After gracing the red carpet in a stunning Vera Wang gown, Zendaya transformed into a custom Celia Kritharioti creation that perfectly captured the essence of her on-screen role.

The floor-length gown, a vibrant tennis ball-yellow, featured an eye-catching detail: an actual tennis ball positioned at the bottom of the deep V-neck. This playful touch echoed the “method dressing” approach that Zendaya and her stylist, Law Roach, have adopted for the film’s promotional tour.

At the afterparty, Zendaya had the pleasure of meeting former Wimbledon finalist Eugenie Bouchard. Bouchard, who attended the premiere alongside tennis legends Tracy Austin and Venus Williams, shared a photo with Zendaya on social media, dubbing her “the new tennis queen.”

Zendaya’s encounter with Bouchard was just one of several interactions she has had with the tennis world during the press tour for “Challengers.” Coco Gauff’s coach, Brad Gilbert, served as the film’s tennis consultant, while Venus Williams revealed that Zendaya had sought her out at the premiere.

Despite her connections to the tennis world, Zendaya has yet to meet Gauff herself. However, after learning of Zendaya’s desire to meet her, Gauff extended an open invitation from the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Stuttgart.

“I’m such a fan and you’re a huge inspiration for me,” Gauff said. “Maybe one day we can meet up and even get a little hit in.”

Zendaya’s viral tennis-themed fashion has garnered widespread attention and admiration. Her ability to seamlessly blend style and substance has made her a true fashion icon. As “Challengers” prepares to hit theaters, Zendaya’s unique approach to dressing for the role is sure to continue captivating audiences.

Eugenie Bouchard Turns Down Justin Bieber, Wins 'Family Feud'

Eugenie Bouchard Turns Down Justin Bieber, Wins ‘Family Feud’

Eugenie Bouchard, the former world No. 5 tennis star, recently revealed on Canada’s “Family Feud” game show that she turned down a date with pop icon Justin Bieber a decade ago. Bouchard, now 30, shared the anecdote while competing with her family on the show.

“It’s a funny story,” Bouchard recalled. “We played a tennis match for charity and he asked me to hang out later, but I had a boyfriend so I said ‘No.'”

Bouchard’s decision to decline Bieber’s invitation has since become a viral moment, with many praising her for prioritizing her relationship. However, Bouchard’s appearance on “Family Feud” was not just about her past dating life.

Joined by her siblings Will and Beatrice, their cousin Celeste, and Celeste Bouchard’s former boyfriend, Ryan Shepherd, the Bouchard family won nearly $12,000 after three episodes. Bouchard played a crucial role in the family’s victory, particularly in the final round.

In the fast money round, two players from each team must answer five questions without repeating any answers and accumulate 200 points. Bouchard and Shepherd teamed up to answer questions such as “Name something in the kitchen you unplug after using?” and “Name an animal with buck teeth.”

Bouchard’s answer of “10” for the question “On a scale of 1-10, how well can you do your boss’ job?” earned 35 points, which ultimately put the team over the top.

“What a cool life experience,” Bouchard wrote on social media after the show.

Bouchard’s appearance on “Family Feud” showcased her competitive spirit and quick wit, both on and off the tennis court. It also provided a glimpse into her personal life and her close relationship with her family.
