While many opted for over-the-top ensembles, Teyana Taylor slayed our lives last night (Aug. 27) at the 2017 Video Music Awards in the simplest (and, most epic) tribute of the evening. The singer/dancer won the night while channeling showing of her killer abs in a modern reboot of a look worn by Janet Jackson at the same awards show in 1995.

Two decades later, the Fade dancer proves that classic style is timeless while rocking the short-sleeve v-neck crop top and black wide-legged plants look.

She even rocked similar style lettering on the back of her shirt, changing up Janet’s original “Pervert 2” to “Underrated 7” and showed off a modernized short cut styled by celeb stylist arrogant_tae123.

The similarities did not stop there, either. Teyana also took home the same Best Choreography award as Janet did, nabbing a Moon Person for her now legendary performance in Kanye West’s Fade video. 

What more can we say, but come through Teyana!
