Ariana Grande recreated an iconic movie moment on the first live episode of “The Voice” on Monday by dressing as Jenna Rink, the lead character in “13 Going on 30.”
The 2004 romantic comedy saw Jennifer Garner sporting the now-iconic, colorful dress from Versace’s Spring 2003 collection with a slick yet spiky updo and vibrant makeup to match. Though it appeared to have been slightly altered, Grande was wearing the same dress as Garner, according to Page Six.
Garner’s character, an awkward teenager who wakes up as a grown-up magazine journalist overnight, wears the dress to a work party where she orchestrates a group dance routine to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.”
Posting a trio of Instagram images on her account on Tuesday that have over 270,000 likes at the time of writing, Donatella Versace wrote: “My gorgeous girl @arianagrande in Versace SS03 for her first The Voice live show!!!”
Grande wore the vintage mini dress with similar styling choices including a pair of silver and green drop earrings, blue stilettos, and lilac eyeshadow. The only detail that appeared to be missing from Grande’s ensemble was the butterfly necklace Garner wore.
According to W Magazine, Grande’s stylist Mimi Cuttrell posted an Instagram Story noting that the outfit was “six months in the making.”
Grande has frequently turned to noughties rom-coms for style inspiration. The music video for her 2018 song “Thank U, Next,” directed by Hannah Lux Davis, offered a variety of easter eggs. Among these were recreations of Rachel McAdams’ role as Regina George in “Mean Girls” (2004) and Reese Witherspoon as Elle Woods in “Legally Blonde” (2001).
In the video, Grande also paid tribute to Rink in another scene from the movie where Garner is carrying a doll’s house made by her love interest, portrayed by Mark Ruffalo. Wearing a red, patterned top and jeans, Grande is seen carrying a similar doll’s house while she walks away from a wedding scene.
In a video posted to Instagram on December 1, 2018, that has over 4.7 million views, Garner thanked Grande for paying tribute to her in the video, writing: “Every now and then something comes along and just brightens your day.”
Representatives for Versace and Mimi Cuttrell did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
