Not only is Shenae’s character loosely based off our favorite fictional twin Brenda Walsh, but it looks like she’s taking some style pointers from her off the set, too!

Maybe my insane ’90s obsession and all the hours I’ve spent re-watching the original 90210 have gotten the best of me, but when I saw this shot of Shenae Grimes at the launch of Google Music in LA on Nov. 16 I was convinced she had somehow found and raided the old wardrobe closet from the original 90210. Her itty-bitty denim shorts and tight black top were identical to Brenda Walsh‘s (Shannen Doherty) beach club outfit that she wore in season 3, (which aired in 1992), while sneaking around with Dylan behind her parent’s back.

Wearing denim shorts that are higher than they are long was a signature Brenda move — and it’s one Shenae also loves to show off on multiple occasions. I like the way Shenae dressed up her look — she added an edgy glam vibe to her shorts and definitely has a distinct sense of style. That being said, all I can think of when I see this get-up is rebellious Brenda — now if only her character Annie would take some ‘tude cues from her too!
