Modern fashion extraordinaire Nicola Peltz knows a thing or two about accessorising. The Welcome to Chippendales star predictably is the proud owner of some ultra-covetable pieces, and her latest arm candy (no it’s not Brooklyn Beckham this time) is one of her best yet.

The 28-year-old came through with an outfit that, honestly, made us do a double take.

Looking every inch the Y2K poster girl, Nicola shared a snap with her 2.9m followers on Instagram which pictured her sporting the most 2000s accessory we've ever seen: a tiny pooch.

Her look felt strongly reminiscent of Paris Hilton's signature aesthetic 

The Bates Motel actress channelled OG It-girl Paris Hilton with her dog-in-a-bag style moment, after all, the heiress-cum-cultural icon was rarely spotted without her furry friend 'Tinkerbell' in tow.

Nicola donned a simple black round neck top which she teamed with dark denim mid-waisted jeans. The actress wore her hair loose over her shoulders, styled with a retro alice band. She opted for another noughties classic – rimless tinted shades, in a stylish indigo hue, an accessory she has seemingly picked up from her mother-in-law.

Nicola topped off her look with a silver geometric tote, which appeared to be by French luxury goods label Goyard. Tucked under her shoulder was the sweet face of a light brown pup who instantly melted our hearts.  

The actress' luxe-looking outfit moment comes just days after she delivered a similar level of impact, on a budget. On a recent date night with husband Brooklyn Beckham, Nicola opted for a rhinestone-embellished asymmetric mini dress which was actually from Swedish high street retailer H&M...(we couldn't believe it either.)

Nicola's date night outfit is super easy to recreate and lends itself perfectly to the ever-tricky early spring weather. She styled her dress alongside sheer black tights and leather knee-high platform boots – ideal for an added sense of sultry. Her mini dress was part of H&M's new 'Innovation Re-Enchantment Story' line – a collection inspired by "the glimmering magic of crystals and minerals", with sustainability at its core.

Glitz, handbag dogs and tinted shades – Paris Hilton, Nicole Ritchie, Elle Woods et al had better watch out…
