Zendaya is going green! The Challengers star was spotted in not one but two bright green looks on Tuesday in New York City as she promoted her new movie. 

The actor donned a dress with touches of green ahead of her appearance on Good Morning America on April 23. Later, she changed into a striking green skirt suit for a visit to Live With Kelly and Mark. 

Challengers also stars Josh O’Connor and Mike Faist and was directed by Call Me By Your Name director Luca Guadagnino. It opens in theaters on Friday.

Zendaya wore a retro-style floral dress with bright green accents as she posed for photos outside of the GMA studio. The dress was from Erdem’s fall 2024 collection.

Roach has crafted a number of tennis-inspired looks for Zendaya’s latest press tour, including the custom dress by Loewe and tennis ball heels she wore at a photocall in Rome on April 8.  

In Challengers, Zendaya plays a retired tennis player who ends up in a love triangle with two other tennis players. During her appearance on GMA, she said she drew inspiration from Venus and Serena Williams when portraying her character, Tashi. 

“What I knew of tennis going into this film was really them,” she said. “That was my only understanding of the sport, really, growing up and seeing their influence on the sport in my life and in the world really.”

Both Williams sisters have seen Challengers, which Zendaya said was “terrifying.”

“It’s hard to fake it. Tennis is an incredibly difficult sport. And I was so nervous for them to see it … So, fingers crossed that it wasn’t too bad for them to watch our tennis skills.”
