Pin-credible! Leggy Zendaya steals the show in glamorous plunging gown with daring thigh-high split as she makes fierce arrival at Evening Standard Theatre Awards

And Zendaya only upped the style stakes on Sunday night as she joined a host of stars at the Evening Standard Theatre Awards.

The 21-year-old truly stole the show in a stunning pleated gown, complete with plunging neckline and thigh-high split, as she posed fiercely on the red carpet at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane.?

The actress commanded attention in the gown, which was formed of a chic velvet bodice and striking pleated skirt of grey and tan.

While the dress fell into long, billowing sleeves and a demure floor-length hem, the gown upped the sex appeal with a daring V neckline - which plunged all the way to her navel, to tease at her cleavage and flash plenty of skin underneath.

Proving her sensational figure further, the skirt then cut into a thigh-high split on one side, to give a glimpse of her long and slender legs underneath.

Keeping all eyes on her show-stopping look, Zendaya tied her look together with barely-there black sandal heels and opted to forgo jewellery.

She slicked her hair into a sophisticated up-do and accentuated her radiant complexion with a glowing make-up look and soft pink lip, in a glamorous finishing touch.

The young star exuded confidence as she posed on the red carpet, before heading inside to mingle with her fellow guests, including Glee's Amber Riley.

She appeared to be in good spirits as she joked and laughed inside - despite recently admitting she is not keen on nights out like other friends her age. ??

She told Fashion magazine: 'For me, a Vegas version of my birthday would be like hell.

'I've always been a very old woman inside a younger person's body. Of course, I have my young-people tendencies; we all have those.

The brunette is next set to star in the Reese Witherspoon-produced movie A White Lie, as the first black woman to graduate from the elite Vassar College.

It is based on the book The Gilded Years, which tells the true story of a light-skinned, African-American who passed as white so she could attend the college during the 1890s.?

She is also preparing for the release of new musical drama The Greatest Showman, which also stars Hugh Jackman and Zac Efron, just before Christmas.?
