Whether you've been following her long enough to remember her time as a musician (cue: "Replay") or are just becoming acquainted with the Euphoria cast member, Zendaya always leaves an impression on her audience—and her red carpet fashion choices are no exception. She continued the streak at tonight's 74th Primetime Emmy Awards, gracing the red carpet in a stunning Valentino gown.

The star is up for four Emmys this year, which, according to Vanity Fair, left her "overwhelmed" and "very, very proud." Zendaya is nominated for the following categories: Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Original Music And Lyrics (with two nominations in this category, BTW), and Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series. Only Zendaya can make having this much success look effortless—and to be quite honest, only Zendaya can make a stunningly chic red carpet appearance look effortless, too.

As one of the faces of Valentino, it's no surprise Zendaya hit the red carpet in one of the fashion house's dresses. The black ball gown is the epitome of classic glamour, featuring many elegant details (like the sweetheart neckline, bow-tie belt, and peplum waist). Zendaya and stylist Law Roach added an extra touch of opulence to her look with a chunky Bulgari necklace, stud earrings, and a ring.

With the gown being the focus of the night, the actress' makeup artist Sheika Daley went for a more natural glam. As Zendaya walked the carpet, we instantly noticed her subtle contour, nude lips, and softly sculpted brows. Not to mention, her glowy skin could be spotted from miles away.

For her hair, Zendaya tapped Tony Medina, who is known for creating vintage-inspired styles. Medina prepped her hair with products from Aunt Jackie's Curls and Coils Grapeseed collection. He specifically praised the Refreshing Sheen Mist ($11), Flexible Styling Glue ($9), and Frizz Patrol Setting Mousse ($9) on his Instagram stories. To create the loose wave ponytail, Medina manipulated Zendaya's pin curls using Tangle Teezer's Wide Tooth Comb ($12) and The Ultimate Styler ($16). Medina finished the look by pulling her hair back with a sleek black ribbon.

Though Emmy's night is still young, Zendaya has already solidified her status as one of the best looks of the night. But, what else would you expect from a fashion and beauty icon?
