If there's anyone who knows how to work a vintage outfit, it's Zendaya. As one of the best dressed A-listers, fact, we can always rely on the star to bring something to the table, and this look in particular doesn’t disappoint.

Arriving to CinemaCon, Zendaya - who picked up the Star of the Year Award - looked exquisite in a shimmering bronze gown, plucked straight from the archives. The look itself first made it's runway debut back in 2001, for the Versace fall collection, but has now been brought back into the limelight courtesy of Law Roach who styled Zendaya for the red-carpet. Paired perfectly with a blown-out bob, Zendaya gave a lesson in old Hollywood glamour.

Zendaya's vintage wardrobe isn't just solely for the red-carpet. In a surprise appearance at the recent Coachella festival, Zendaya took to the stage alongside Labrinth to perform two songs from the Euphoria soundtrack. Not only a joy for the ears, the performance was also a sartorial treat for the eyes with Zendaya bringing back one of our favourite ‘00s looks for the occasion; the rara dress.

The look in question came in the form of a sugary pink, ruffled Roberto Cavalli 2004 mini dress, straight from the Aralda Vintage archives. While other A-listers opted for a rather subdued take on quiet luxury for their Coachella wardrobes, Zendaya brought a little more fun to proceedings. Another nod to the nostalgic fashion trend of yesteryear is the styling. Layering a spaghetti strap dress neatly over a basic white T-shirt is a '90s classic, a style tip perfected by millennials everywhere.

From Beyoncé-inspired Versace in 2021 to the iconic monochrome Valentino gown, first worn by Linda Evangelista on the 1992 runway, this isn’t the first time Zendaya has stepped out in a vintage number (yes, 2004 now counts as vintage). Look back at the star's past red carpet moments and you’ll find plenty of archive designer moments to enjoy, expertly brought to us from ex-stylist to the stars, Law Roach.

So, in a world of 'wear it once' culture, it's time to be more Zendaya.
