Speaking to British Vogue, the celeb stylist described, “The whole look is inspired by ’90s supermodels.”
“She was really born in 1996, so I believed that it’d be enjoyable [for her] to use something from that year. It’s taking her back — if Zendaya had actually been of age then, perhaps she would have been a Versace design,” he informed the publication.
“People forget that vintage is sustainable; it’s a way to reduce waste,” he kept in mind. “And there’s always a story: who’s worn it before, who made it, what did it mean to them, where did you find it? That part of fashion has always intrigued me, and brings more life to whatever you’re wearing.”
Zendaya’s glimmering dress absolutely has a story. It was very first used by Anna Klevhag (a.k.a Anna K) in the autumn/winter 1996 Versace runway program. A purple variation of the style was designed by Carla Bruni with a yellow one used by Naomi Campbell. Kate Moss slipped into it for an advertising campaign.
