Watch: Anne Hathaway and Zendaya star in short film for Bulgari
Icons Zendaya and Anne Hathaway have come together in the collaboration we didn't know we needed as the stars of the new Bulgari jewellery ad.
For its 'Unexpected Wonders' campaign, the Oscar-winning actor and star of Euphoria feature in a two-and-a-half minute film directed by Paolo Sorrentino, as well as in images shot by Dan Jackson, as they drip in jewels while enjoying freedom in Rome.
"Accept Rome’s heartwarming invitation and search for joy and wonder in every moment, gleaming beauty in the most surprising places — knowing that staying curious opens us up to an infinity of blissful opportunities. Discover #UnexpectedWonders, #Bulgari’s new Brand movie. #Rome," Bulgari captioned the video release.
Hathaway sets the precedent for the film with the opening line, "In the search for wonder..." while Zendaya adds "...there are no beginnings" before Hathaway finishes the sentence with "...only new beginnings."
They make their way around a beautiful estate experiencing small and big wonders – the location and themselves decorated with jewels and diamonds – before exploring a magical rain of flowers, and enjoying breathtaking views of the city.
Not to mention what appears to be a few occasional winks to each other, and a liberating slow-moving dance scene.
The film finishes with the pair smiling in the sun, arm in arm, touching heads. "To discover unexpected wonders," says Zendaya softly.
The Buglari release says "Hathaway is captured wearing sumptuous High Jewelry creations, or timeless pieces from the Serpenti range, but also refined jewellery and watches of the Divas’ Dream collection." Meanwhile, "Zendaya unveils with sophistication the High Jewelry works of art, moreover she expresses her personality through the B.zero1 and BB collection."
Other extraordinary women to feature in the campaign include LACKPINK singer Lalisa aka LISA, Chinese actor Shu Q and U.S.-based Indian actor Priyanka Chopra Jonas.
"Together they epitomize the diversity, equity and inclusion driving Bvlgari ethics and values as well as confirm Bvlgari status of Jeweler of Stars," the brand's release states.
