One of the best looks from Sunday's BET Awards came courtesy of Zendaya, icon, who paid tribute to Beyoncé, icon, in vintage Versace. Stylist Law Roach, icon, explained the history behind Zendaya's floaty purple and lime gown, revealing Beyoncé wore the very same style (altered to mini length) to perform "Crazy in Love" at the BET Awards in 2003. "Paying homage to the Queen Beyoncé wearing @versace SS2003 ..... get you a stylist with a ARCHIVE!!!!" Roach wrote on Instagram.
Zendaya completed the look with yellow diamond earrings by Bulgari and minimal strappy heels by Stuart Weitzman, posing for a series of truly stunning photos shot by Ahmad Barber and Donté Maurice of AB+DM. Fittingly, she captioned her Instagram post, "Crazy in love." See the Beyoncé look that inspired Zendaya's tribute below.
