In a photo shared by the 27-year-old's longtime stylist, Law Roach, on Thursday, Zendaya recreated the sisters' 1998 Vogue photoshoot as "an ode to the greats."

The snap sees the Euphoria star posed in a corseted black-and-white gown featuring an oversized skirt.

Just as Serena and Venus did, Zendaya wore her hair in white beads, though her style added bangs as well.

Law thanked the sisters for "all [they] have done," signing the message with "love" from himself and Zendaya.

Venus quickly chimed in with praise, commenting, "Wow. No words! So much love for you."

The seven-time Grand Slam winner surprised Zendaya at the Los Angeles premiere of Challengers earlier this week, treating the Emmy winner to the ultimate dream-come-true moment.

Zendaya also opened up about her admiration of the Williams sisters in a recent Vogue cover story, for which Serena had the chance to interview the Dune star.

When asked about what she found most impressive about the champion sisters, Zendaya said simply: "F**king all of it."

"The story, the amount of pressure, the microscope that they were under, the loneliness they must have felt – because it's already lonely to be a tennis player, but to be a Black female tennis player, I can't imagine," she said.

Zendaya recently shared a sweet exchange with another Black female tennis sensation – rising star Coco Gauff, who fangirled over the Marvel star naming her as the current player she finds most inspiring.
