Zendaya was on the move as she was photographed rocking a braless look at Sydney Airport in Australia earlier this year. The 27-year-old actress, who has been jetting around the world to promote her Challengersmovie this year, was between press calls on April 1, when images published by The Daily Mail focused on her decision to forego a bra. When the newspaper shared airport photos of the former Disney star, it opened with Zendaya "[going] braless" in its headline, something that fans in the comments didn't appear to appreciate. One user even wrote that whether or not Zendaya chooses to go braless is her "business."

Zendaya Makes Headlines For Braless Airport Look

Scroll for the photos. Going incognito as she wore both a baseball cap and a protective face mask, Zendaya made her way through the terminal with her assistant. Keeping casual and comfy for her flight, the On ambassador highlighted her sculpted shoulders and toned arms in a flimsy, ordinary white tank top, going very slightly sheer and putting on a perky display.

Going feminine-strong as she championed the braless trend also adored by model Kendall Jenner, Zendaya completed her look with low-slung, black sweatpants as she just about flashed her abs.

Peeping her blonde locks from under her baseball cap, Zendaya kept practical in white sneakers. She slung a black leather bag over one shoulder, also carrying another one and with her assistant seen lugging a monogrammed Louis Vuitton holdall. The actress and singer fronts the luxury French brand.

While a popular reply asked The Daily Mail to "move on from this kind of vocab" as it frowned on the "braless" word used, another said: "Bra not required." Some may have interpreted the comment as supportive, although it could equally have been a shaming remark. A separate user, meanwhile, replied: "I always go bra-less...why is this even a story?" Backing Zendaya, a third wrote that it's "no-one's business what she wears."

Those Custom Tennis Outfits

Zendaya made tons of headlines for the Challengers press tour, largely for the method dressing she embraced as she and stylist Law Roach worked together. In the above photo, she wowed in a pale-pink, custom-designed dress from Jacquemus, going skintight and cut-put as she flashed her rock-hard abs.

Didn't 'Know Anything About Tennis'

Zendaya underwent intense training to play her pro-level Tashi character.

"I didn’t know anything about tennis, to be honest," she told Variety. "So I just threw myself in there. I’ve pretty much seen every video, every match that’s online, every compilation, every interview. It became my thing. Anytime I wasn’t at work, I was watching something. My Instagram became full of tennis stuff."

Zendaya, who is reported to have a $22 million net worth, has even cashed in beyond her movie paycheck. Since landing her Challengers role, she's signed a multi-year deal with sportswear brand On.
