Ariana Grande loves a fashion throwback and, like, same. One of the best examples of her nostalgic inclination was her (now iconic) 'Thank U, Next' music video where she recreated some of our favourite '00s rom-com moments, and their corresponding outfits, including 13 Going on 30, Legally Blonde, Mean Girls and Bring It On. Now, the star's just gone and worn the most famous dress from 13 Going On 30 for her latest appearance as a judge on The Voice.

The dress in question was the suuuuper 2000s rainbow-striped mini dress that Jenna Rink (played by Jennifer Garner) wore for her magazine's big party, where she kick starts the dance floor to 'Thriller', remember? The look, from Versace鈥檚 spring 2003 show, is undeniably memorable. Here's Ari's take on the dress:

Ariana took to Instagram Stories to share a closer look at the dress and, yup, she kept true to the original look by channeling the noughties-inspired shimmery eyeshadow, glossy lip and even the spikey bun, just like Garner.

"thank you so so so so much @donatellaversace @versace 馃馃 and happy first live show!!!!! @nbcthevoice #teamariana" the singer wrote.

From the sound of Ari's caption, it sounds like Donatella Versace is at least partly responsible for making this fashion moment happen, with the designer going on to share the pic on her own Stories, adding "@arianagrande you're truly breathtaking!!! I hope you enjoyed your first live show. Love u 馃馃挋馃挌馃"

But Ari's not the only one loving this dress all over again. Amidst the Y2K fashion revival, this Versace design has recently witnessed a comeback on platforms like TikTok. In fact, Christa B. Allen (who played 13-year-old Jenna in the movie) has even worn the dress, and the video is every bit as amazing as it sounds. 

Is it just me, or is this whole thing just absolutely glorious? The nostalgia. The fashion. Yep, Put a fork in me 'cos I'm done.
