If you spotted Zendaya at the Oscars, you'll already know that the Euphoria star looked absolutely stunning. What you might have missed though, is the moment she showed just how thoughtful she is as we slowly come out of a pandemic.
While all guests at last night's Oscars were told they could remove their masks while sitting down for the ceremony, fans spotted that Zendaya kept hers on throughout—and she seemed to be the only one to do so.

"Thank you Zendaya for being the only one there with a mask on. Another reason why you’re a role model to everyone", one fan wrote on Twitter.
Another added: "Zendaya still has her mask on in the audience. Don't blame her tbh #Oscars #Oscars2021".
A third also wrote: "zendaya wearing her mask throughout the entire ceremony is one of the many reasons she’s superior".

Mask protocol for the evening was that guests could take masks off while cameras were rolling, but they had to come on when no filming was happening. However, being extra careful—seen we're still in the midst of a worldwide pandemic— is very sensible, and we love Zendaya even more for it.
The actor looked like a vision in yellow in a custom Valentino cutout dress, Bulgari jewelry (valued at over $6 million, no big deal), and Jimmy Choo heels. While she was not nominated this year, Zendaya attended the ceremony as a presenter (let's not forget she made history just last September as the youngest Drama-Actress Winner at the Emmys).
Big winners of the night included Nomadland, which got Best Film, Best Actress for Frances McDormand, and Best Director for Chloe Zhao, who's only the second woman to ever won the award (and beat Emerald Fennell, who directed Promising Young Woman).
