Zendaya rocked her new bob and a vintage Versace gown in first red-carpet appearance of 2023 at the NAACP Image Awards
Zendaya's first red-carpet look of 2023 featured a show-stopping vintage dress.
The actress stepped out in a 2002 Versace couture gown for Saturday's NAACP Image Awards.
She later changed into a 1993 Prada ensemble, swapping the original pants for a long skirt.
Zendaya dipped into the designer archives and made a statement during her first trip to the red carpet in 2023.
The "Euphoria" star arrived at the NAACP Image Awards on Saturday in a black Versace gown with lime green stripes. The piece also featured a split bustier with a plunging neckline and what appeared to be a green bustle in the back.
According to an Instagram post from actor's stylist, Law Roach, the dress was originally part of the Italian fashion house's spring 2002 couture collection. Supermodel Karolina Kurkova wore it down the runway that year.
For her take on the look, Zendaya swapped out sparkling sandals for black, pointed-toe pumps. Her makeup was subdued and neutral, highlighted by brown lip liner and bronze eye shadow.
Thanks to sparkling, silver jewelry and the star's brown bob, which she debuted on Instagram in December 2022, the ensemble felt like a twist on old Hollywood style.
But Zendaya didn't stop there. The star stepped onstage to present the award for outstanding motion picture in a head-to-toe white look from Prada's spring 1993 show.
Roach shared the original runway footage in another Instagram post Saturday, revealing that the outfit's first iteration came with pants. Zendaya's look instead featured a maxi skirt, which played on the same cutout motif highlighted in her bralette top.
"You had dinner.... now it's time for dessert!" Roach wrote about Zendaya's wardrobe change.
According to Harper's Bazaar, Zendaya was nominated for two awards at the ceremony: entertainer of the year and outstanding actress in a drama series for "Euphoria."
Although she didn't win either title, she earned praise from her peers on Instagram this weekend. Big names like Naomi Campbell, Gigi Hadid, SZA, Hailey Bieber, and Justine Skye commented on the actor'sVersace moment, with Campbell calling her "divine."
Zendaya also took a moment to appreciate the little things at the awards show. In an Instagram video she shared of herself walking the red carpet Saturday, an offscreen voice can be heard saying, "Serving, serving, serving!"
The actor pointed to the person and smiled as she continued to pose.
"'SERVING SERVING SERVING' whoever you are, thank you…you made my night lol," she wrote in the caption.
