Zendaya's striped ballgown is the same dress worn by Venus and Serena Williams

There's no question about it, the Challengers press tour has been a series of repeated style serves (it's a tennis pun, geddit?) and a masterclass in fashion storytelling. Truly, we stan the duo that is Zendaya and Law Roach.

To recap, we've seen Zendaya's ensembles take inspiration from Wimbledon – AKA the oldest home of tennis – with a strict colour palette of pristine white, a tennis court in a grass green look, the athletes' attire in a tennis dress, tennis rackets in her custom embroidered themed gown, not to mention an actual tennis ball. Admittedly, it sounds ridiculous. But every 'fit has been *so* good.

Though perhaps none compare to her latest look. Taking to Instagram, Law Roach shared pics of Zendaya perfectly recreating Venus and Serena Williams' iconic 1998 Vogue cover. From the *exact* same Carolina Hererra black and white striped ballgown to the white beaded braids.

The post was captioned, "An ode to the GREATS @venuswilliams @serenawilliams We thank you for all you have done! With Love, Z and Law".

Originally lensed by Annie Leibovitz for the fashion publication, Law included the photo of the tennis queens in his carousel. In the snap, the sisters can be seen sitting together on an elegant sofa, the voluminous skirts of their matching dresses billowing around them. Zendaya, although photographed solo, adopted a similar pose in an equally regal hotel room, decorated with a vintage feel to further emphasise the tribute.

The best part is this shoot wasn't even for anything. It was just part of Law's storytelling around the film. Umm, can someone say creative genius?

Venus herself took to the comments section of the post, writing, "Wow. No words! So much love for you. ✨" We're not crying...
