Zendaya Wore Vintage Valentino From Before She Was Even Born

Linda Evangelista debuted the look back in 1992.

Zendaya's vintage revival isn't slowing down. After choosing a sleek serpentine Roberto Cavalli gown as part of her Spider-Man: No Way Home press wardrobe, she's back at it in a jumpsuit that hit the runway before she was even born. At last night's Euphoria season 2 event, she arrived wearing a black-and-white striped jumpsuit from Valentino's Spring/Summer 1992 collection. Back when the look made its debut, supermodel Linda Evangelista wore it — and was it a coincidence that the two both had red hair? Only Zendaya's stylist (ahem, image architect) Law Roach would know that for sure.

Zendaya shared the look on her Instagram Stories, even adding a few shots of Evangelista to let her followers know exactly what the inspiration was. Back in '92 (Zendaya was born in '96, FYI), designer Valentino Garavani styled the graphic jumpsuit with big, bold earrings and a statement-making cuff. Roach opted to style the updated take with simpler earrings, which were highlighted by Zendaya's updo, and bare arms.

In addition to this throwback, Zendaya has worn vintage Saint Laurent and Versace in the past. Like last night's outfit, both of those ensembles are older than she is, making her a true fashion historian. Speaking about her own love for vintage, she said it's easy to blend her own style with Rue, her character from Euphoria.

"I think Rue has a lot of really cool vintage pieces that made me want to start getting more vintage T-shirts and things like that," she said. "She definitely came through for me in the comfort side of my style. Trends are like, 'What's the point?'"
