The show has just begun and so far Janelle Monae, Ray J, La La Anthony, Kelly Rowland and Blac Chyna have all been spotted in Zanotti designs.
Before Monae took the stage to perform in white Nike wedge sneakers, the singer who usually rocks her suit look, switched it up with a black caped dress and Giuseppe Zanotti gold snake sandals. Going for a similar look, Kelly Rowland went with Zanotti sandals and a black feather-embellished ensemble.
Anthony, who hosted the BET Awards red carpet, paired her yellow strappy Zanotti sandals with a Peter Pilotto dress. Blac Chyna, who attended with Amber Rose to show their support for marriage equality, paired her white pant suit with Zanotti platforms.
Ray J posed with his sister Brandy on the red carpet, wearing red Zanotti low-top double zipper sneakers.
During the show, Alicia Keys made a surprise appearance for the Weeknd’s performance of “Earned It.” Keys wore Giuseppe Zanotti geometric embellished pumps, while singing behind her piano.
