At Sunday night's BET Awards
paid the best tribute to Beyoncé possible, and fans
The "Euphoria" singer wore a replica of Beyonce
's purple and lime green
Versace gown from the same show 18 years ago.
Beyonce wore the short gown with cut-outs to her BET Awards performance of "Crazy in Love" with her now-husband Jay-Z
in 2003, and Zendaya wore a similar styled gown with a longer hem this weekend.
Roach, her stylist, posted a video of the actor and singer on Instagram
with the caption, "Paying homage to the Queen Beyoncé wearing @versace SS2003..... get you a stylist with an ARCHIVE!!!!"

Roach also shared some vintage photos
of Bey in her version of the gown, as well as photos of model Inga Savits wearing the look when it debuted on the Versace runway in 2003 as part of the Spring ready-to-wear collection.
Unsurprisingly, the internet reacted positively to Zendaya's tribute to Queen Bey, praising her:
