On Sunday, the 27-year-old actor and her co-stars brought their anticipated flick to Milan, where they posed for a photocall in front of some of the city's most iconic sights.

Zendaya again opted for an all-white look, seemingly taking inspiration from the color's long history in tennis fashion.

As it turns out, her collared mini-dress has quite a storied past of its own, as the vintage Ralph Lauren number was worn by supermodel Cindy Crawford when it made its runway debut in 1992.

Zendaya's styling matched Crawford's look for the show, as her curled blonde tresses echo the 58-year-old hairstyle for the runway show.

The Euphoria star just may make tennis skirts a staple of the 2024 fashion zeitgeist, as her many "tenniscore" looks worn on the Challengers press tour have gone viral.

Her recent favor of tennis whites was preceded by a few green looks that pulled inspiration from the sport's courts – none quite so literally as Z's custom Loewe gown that featured the silhouette of a player gearing up to serve.
