Zendaya looks fierce in a skimpy plunging dress for the BET Awards as she pays tribute to Beyonce

She regularly turns heads at award show red carpets thanks to her chic ensembles.

And Zendaya didn’t disappointed on Sunday afternoon when she prepared for the 2021 BET Awards with a revealing purple dress.

The 24-year-old star, who was nominated for Best Actress, took some pointers from one of the best, as her dress was inspired by a classic Versace look worn by Beyoncé at the 2003 BET Awards.

Zendaya usually has a bubbly demeanor, but she showed off her fiercest pout as she strutted down a sidewalk in a short clip shared by stylist Law Roach.

The slow-motion video emphasized her sheer purple skirt billowing in the breeze. 

The dress’ high slit emphasized the Spider-Man stars long, toned legs, and the backless design highlighted her svelte figure.

The sheer halter dress featured a plunging top showcasing her cleavage, with brilliant green strands lightening up the color scheme and a lighter purple strap wrapping around her back.

Zendaya had her dark locks parted down the middle and styled straight in a long ponytail.

She added some sparkle to the ensemble with dangling pearl earrings, and she elevated her 5ft8in stature in matching stiletto heels.

Her stylist Law Roach gushed about the look in the caption to his Instagram video. 

‘Paying homage to the Queen Beyoncé wearing @versace SS2003 ….. get you a stylist with a ARCHIVE!!!!’ he wrote.

Beyoncé took her version of the look, which was somewhat more revealing, for a run when she performed at the 2003 BET Awards.

Unlike Zendaya’s updated version of the dress, the former Destiny’s Child singer opted for a mini skirt to give herself more freedom for a high-energy version of Crazy In Love. 

The performance helped cement Beyoncé’s standing as a solo artist, as the song was the first single from her debut album Dangerously In Love.

So that there wasn’t any confusion about who she was paying tribute to, Zendaya also shared a photo of Beyonce at the 2003 BET Awards to her Insta Stories.

The actress’ BET nomination isn’t pegged to a particular performance, but it’s likely inspired by her film Malcolm & Marie, directed by Euphoria creator Sam Levinson.

She starred opposite John David Washington in the searing black-and-white drama, which received mixed reviews from critics.

Zendaya has a busy year ahead of her, as she’s set to appear as Lola Bunny in the upcoming sequel Space Jam: A New Legacy.

LeBron James takes over for Michael Jordan in the new film, which shows him teaming up with classic Looney Tunes characters to dive into cyberspace to rescue his son after he’s kidnapped by Al-G Rhythm, a dastardly computer algorithm played by Don Cheadle.

Zendaya’s version of Lola Bunny plays up her comedic skills, while the animated character has been drawn as more athletic and less sexualized than the original version featured in 1996’s Space Jam.

She has also recently been filming the second season of her hit HBO high school drama Euphoria, which was intended to arrive in 2020 until the coronavirus pandemic put production on hold.

Filming resumed in April, and the second season will now premiere later this year.

To tide viewers over, she and her costar Hunter Schafer both led solo stop-gap specials of the series in the winter.
