It doesn't get any more Y2K than this.
When Zendaya was announced as the face of Louis Vuitton, we all prepared ourselves to see the superstar in the brand's latest and greatest. However, today, Zendaya wore a throwback hit back from the 2000s and it's enough to make any fan of Y2K fashion scream. Today, Louis Vuitton showed its latest collection at Paris Fashion Week — and Zendaya was in attendance in a design from the storied French brand, naturally — but after the formality, pomp, and circumstance that came with the presentation, Zendaya stepped out carrying the brand's Theda bag, a divisive style that bowed in the mid-2000s.
When the brand released the bag, which features a big buckle and two drawstrings, it was available in Vuitton's signature monogram as well as a rainbow, candy-colored version that was part of LV's collab with Japanese pop artist Takashi Murakami. The bag debuted when Marc Jacobs was still at the helm of LV and the partnership with Murakami was one of his most popular (and longest-running) collections. Zendaya carried it in a medium size and paired the statement-making throwback top-handle bag with a princess-y puff-sleeve gold top with dainty bow details and a pair of medium-wash straight-leg jeans. She finished it all off with a pair of strappy silver sandals.
Earlier today, Zendaya wore a long white gown with a daring double zipper detail (from LV, of course) at the brand's presentation at 103 Avenue des Champs-Élysées in Paris. And while she may be LV's headliner, she's also splitting duties in the City of Light. Over the weekend, she was unveiled as part of a campaign shot at the Louvre. Zendaya's a spokesperson for Lancôme and joined fellow ambassadors Aya Nakamura, Amanda Seyfried, and He Cong in reimagining some of the museum's most standout pieces. Zendaya posed with "Winged Victory of Samothrace," one of just a few surviving statues from the ancient Hellenistic period and a superstar in its own right. It appeared in Audrey Hepburn's Funny Face.
“Pop culture — the culture of moving images, advertising, social media, and our daily lives — is often inspired by these timeless images and representations," Laurence des Cars, president-director of the museum, said to ArtNet. "The Musée du Louvre collections are surprising and captivating in their ability to provide a reading and an understanding of how these canons transform, how they can be interpreted, and how they evolve.”
