For the 21st edition of BET Awards held in Los Angeles, Zendaya opted for a flowing purple dress from the Versace archives, which she carried with Stuart weitzman pumps and Bulgarian jewelry. The American actress, who was nominated in the “Best actress” category, has once again chosen the boldness that has become its fashion signature over the years. According to Cockroach of the law, Zendayapersonal stylist, the dress is a “tribute” to Beyoncé, who wore the same dress in a cropped version when she first performed at the 2003 BET Awards.
