Stepping onto the 94th Academy Awards red carpet, Zendaya (as usual) was one of the best dressed guests of the night in her Valentino Haute Couture ensemble. She made quite the entrance wearing a cropped white blouse and skirt embroidered with sequins, which appeared to be heavily influenced by a past Oscars’ look.
The Dune actress’ white silk cropped collared shirt by Valentino creative director Pier Paolo Piccioli paired with a skirt recalled images of Sharon Stone’s similarly-styled look from the 1998 Oscars.
Rethinking the Oscars dress code, Stone paired her lavender Vera Wang skirt with a men’s dress shirt borrowed from her then-husband Phil Bronstein, causing the unexpected look to go down in Oscars best dressed history.
Writer and podcast host Evan Ross Katz clocked the similarities on Instagram, captioning a side-by-side image of the two actresses: “Zendaya channeling Sharon Stone.” Zendaya‘s right-hand-man stylist Law Roach commented on the post, “I love a girl that gets a reference.”
Stone later reposted the Instagram on her Stories, giving her seal of approval, writing, “Huge fan of you beauty.”
Dripping in Bulgari jewels, with her silver manicure and elegant up-do, Zendaya’s glamorous update of Stone’s original ensemble is sure to go down along with the original as one of the best Oscar fashion moments of all time.
