Zendaya wears striped outfit with fluffy tail for Challengers promotion

Hollywood star Zendaya opted for a striped tennis-inspired outfit with a white, fluffy tail to promote her new film Challengers.

The Euphoria star, 27, plays Tashi Duncan in the new romance film, about a tennis prodigy who suffers a tennis accident and then coaches her partner, played by West Side Story star Mike Faist.

At a photocall at Claridges in London on Thursday, a blonde Zendaya wore a red, white and blue waistcoat and skirt ensemble – reminiscent of the type of top and skirt outfits worn by female tennis players.

She appeared alongside US actor Faist and The Crown star Josh O’Connor, who plays a rival love interest in the film.

Zendaya, also known for the Dune and Spider-Man movies, completed the outfit with white heels alongside a pom-pom-shaped feathery tail on the back of her skirt.

Zendaya was previously inspired by tennis stars to wear a pleated skirt on a sequin gown at the premiere on Wednesday.

The outfit was also layered on top of white netting and adorned with panels of red, white and blue square blocks – and a bow that sat atop her lower waist.

On Thursday, her male co-stars opted for more of a casual look, with Faist wearing jeans and a cream jumper and O’Connor wearing black trousers, a maroon jumper and dark grey jacket.

Challengers will arrive in UK cinemas on April 26.
