Zendaya Pays Homage to Venus and Serena Williams With Latest 'Challengers' Press Tour Look

The Emmy-winning actress wears white beaded braids and billowing black-and-white Carolina Herrera ballgown to recreate the Williams sisters' iconic look for their 1998 Vogue cover.

AceShowbiz - Zendaya Coleman's tennis-inspired wardrobe for the "Challengers" press tour continues with an ode to real-life tennis players. The actress has paid tribute to Venus Williams and Serena Williams with her latest look to promote her new film.

On Thursday, April 18, Zendaya's longtime stylist Law Roach uploaded to his Instagram page two stunning photos of the two-time Emmy winner recreating the tennis champs' 1998 Vogue cover shot. She wore the same white beaded braids and billowing black-and-white Carolina Herrera ballgown donned by both Venus and Serena for their first-ever Vogue shoot.

The resemblance didn't stop there as the "Spider-Man: No Way Home" star sat on a couch and faced sideways to the camera, similar to the Williams sisters' pose in their photo from the Vogue shoot.

"An ode to the GREATS @venuswilliams @serenawilliams We thank you for all you have done! With Love, Z and Law," Law captioned the snaps, while including the original photo that inspired Zendaya's look. He added, "Thank You to @wesgordon and the @carolinaherrera team for helping us recreate this iconic look."

Zendaya also took to her Instagram Story to share her picture in the black-and-white dress and wrote over it, "Forever inspired by @venuswilliams @serenawilliams."

Venus has returned the love, writing underneath Law's post, "Wow. No words! So much love for you." She then reshared Zendaya's photo on her Story and wrote, "My heart melted on this one. Iconic @zendaya."

Venus Williams' IG Story

Venus Williams reacted to Zendaya's homage to her and sister Serena Williams.

Serena, meanwhile, reacted by reposting several posts that gushed over Zendaya's homage to her and her sister. One of them was a post by Byrdie that wrote, "Excuse us while we pick our jaws off the floor. @zendaya played [sic] homage to tennis legends @serenawilliams..." The retired tennis player also reposted Zendaya's Story.

Earlier this week, Venus attended the Los Angeles premiere of "Challengers" at the Westwood Village Theater. The tennis ace joined the movie's cast, including Zendaya, Josh O'Connor and Mike Faist, as well as celebrity guests such as Storm Reid, Cynthia Erivo and Lena Waithe at the event, which took place on Tuesday, April 16.
