We can always bank on the youngest-ever CFDA Fashion Icon to obliterate any rival red carpet moment with the help of her longtime collaborator, Law Roach. On January 5, Zendaya pulled out all the stops while attending the Euphoria premiere, and channeled an iconic ’90s supermodel.

The Emmy-winning actor turned up to the photo call for the highly-anticipated second season of the hit Gen-Z HBO show (it was a low-key affair due to Covid-19 restrictions), and stole the show dressed in vintage Valentino. Zendaya uploaded a series of snaps of Valentino Garavani alongside​ model Linda Evangelista – who famously wore the dress on the runway in the 1990s – in a strapless black and white dress to her Instagram. The star simultaneously commemorated the iconic outfit while looking the epitome of elegance in the same spring/summer 1992 Valentino ensemble at the premiere. Chandelier earrings and slicked-backed hair tied the look together and kept all eyes on the actor’s stunning gown.

It’s worth noting that this isn’t the first time the Spider-man actor has shared a glimpse of her and Law Roach’s vintage-inspired mood board. Whether it’s an archive Roberto Cavalli gown, an ’80s YSL couture moment or a striking Noughties Versace show-stopper, Zendaya knows how to capitalize on the vintage red-carpet renaissance.
