Zendaya wears custom tennis ball heels and plunging pleated dress for ‘Challengers’ photocall in Rome

Game, set, fashion match.

Zendaya took her dedication to tennis to the next level while promoting her new movie “Challengers” in Rome, Italy, wearing a pair of white pumps with actual tennis balls attached to the heel.

The “Dune” star, 27, wore a plunging silver Loewe dress with the special heels as she posed for photos on an Italian rooftop, joining co-stars Josh O’Connor and Mike Faist for the shoot.

Her sparkly drop-waisted dress was a custom creation from the Spanish fashion house featuring a tennis-ready pleated skirt and black striped trim.

The “Greatest Showman” actress — who plays a tennis coach caught in a love triangle between her husband and their former friend in the movie — kept the sporty vibes going with her white pumps, which included Loewe logo tennis balls attached to the towering heels.

She wore her freshly dyed blond hair pulled half-up with the bottom flipped out, accessorizing with silver earrings and several bangle bracelets.

Hot off the heels of their out-of-this-world “Dune: Part Two” press tour, the “Euphoria” star and her longtime stylist, Law Roach, have put together plenty of on-the-nose looks to promote “Challengers.”
