Yesterday it was announced that Zendaya will be starring in Lifetime's upcoming Aaliyah biopic (!!!), which is all sorts of brilliant because (a) Z's basically been acting since she was born and will surely do the part justice, and (b) the ink hasn't even dried on her contract, but she's *already* nailing Aaliyah's style.

The 17-year-old Disney actress has been taking style cues from the R&B legend for years, which is saying a lot because, well, she's 17. Zendaya does a ton of paying homage to the late great Miss Haughton on Instagram (see what I mean?!), and she even dressed up as her for Halloween last year in an incredibly enviable '90s-era Tommy Hilfiger getup.

So, check out our favorite times she's channeled the Age Ain't Nothing But a Number icon.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
