Bruno Mars' Versace on the Floor was this year's unrivaled slow jam, and now the experience is complete with a music video! Enter Zendaya, drenched in a smoky purple haze and a crystal-embellished frock that hides juuust enough secrets to keep you watching 'til the very last scene. And we did, noting all the style elements along the way. Turn down the lights and close the door as we tell you why the whole thing is one huge fashion moment squeezed into 5 short minutes.
1. The Dress
With a capital D, duh. It's only further evidence of the influence fashion has over music, and vice versa: The entire song revolves around Zendaya's glimmering, dangerously high-cut metallic number (or, rather, the irrelevance of it—you won't need it anymooore...). And the way the MV ends, with that Versace actually hitting the floor? Too sexy, and not even a gem out of place. Seduction via sequins.
2. Zendaya's beauty look
This is sultry, '70s disco glam. Full fringe, smoldering, kohl-smudged eyes, and a liquid-glossed lip—just the look to throw over your shoulder as your zipper plunges slowly, enticingly, telekenetically downward.
3. Bruno's outfit
In keeping with 24K Magic's lavish, skiing-across-the-Bellagio-fountain Vegas vibe, Bruno was every bit the smooth crooner in a baroque-print silk shirt worn open to reveal a tangle of chains draped around his neck. It's unapologetically flashy, it's decadent, and it's just a tiny bit sleazy; in other words, a look fit for any soul singer trying to tempt you through the wall.
