Zendaya walked the Oscar's red carpet in a bold yellow custom cut-out Valentino dress, teamed up with matching platforms from Jimmy Choo and a natural makeup look. However, the focus of the look was her statement diamond necklace. 

According to her stylist Law Roach, the star is the first to debut a necklace from Bulgari's upcoming high jewellery collection, Magnifica - which will be released later this year. The piece features two diamond collars with a removable centre brooch and tassel, complete with a six-carat cushion-cut yellow diamond.

"The inspiration was all about this jewellery. We have a beautiful gown, but in the fitting, we had a whole gamut of these incredible, incredible pieces from Bulgari, and the jewellery just literally became the star of the show," Law Roach tells Harper's Bazaar.

Zendaya, who is a Bulgari ambassador, loved getting to choose her accessories. 

"When it was time to just try jewellery on, there was a piece that Zendaya was absolutely in love with, that we had saw at a little preview. We went to the store about a week ago, and so we saw it, and she said, 'Oh my God, this is incredible. This could be the one (sic),'" adds Law Roach.
