Zendaya is an absolute pro at shutting down the red carpet. Whether she’s wearing a hot-pink Valentino two-piece suit or a slinky backless Saint Laurent gown, the Hollywood star knows how to make a statement. For her most recent outing, after a lengthy absence from the red carpet? Zendaya offered not one but two sizzling outfits in a single evening—both rare archival looks that any devoted fashion enthusiast would recognize from a mile away.
To attend the 2023 NAACP Image Awards in Los Angeles, the 26-year-old wore a silk black and green vintage Versace haute couture dress from its spring-summer 2002 collection. The dangerously high slit on the dress revealed a pair of black patent pumps underneath, and Zendaya accessorized with crystal-encrusted Bulgari jewelry pieces on her wrist and fingers.
Later that evening the actor wowed in another memorable look—this time in custom Prada that’s inspired by a look from its spring-summer 1993 collection—which comprised a white satin cutout crop top, a matching maxi skirt with cutout details across the midriff and a white pair of leather heels.
Vintage fashions are having a serious moment on the red carpet, and Gen Z style star Zendaya is helping to lead the charge. Stay tuned for another potential archive moment from the actor at the SAG Awards tonight.
