Beyoncé Surprises Colin Kaepernick With Sports Illustrated’s Legacy Award in Curve-Hugging Dress & Sandals

In a surprise appearance last night, Beyoncé presented former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick with Sports Illustrated’s Muhammad Ali Legacy Award, which is given to athletes who use their platform to promote change.

The “Formation” singer took the stage in a shimmery striped, curve-hugging, “Bootylicious” dress from designer LaQuan Smith’s spring ’18 collection and celeb-favorite Giuseppe Zanotti Harmony sandals in mirrored silver.


The three-strap stilettos, which retail for $845, perfectly complemented the Grammy winner’s sparkling minidress and flattered her feet for the occasion.

“It feels so good to be here on such a special night of appreciation. Thank you, Colin Kaepernick. Thank you for your selfless heart and your conviction. Thank you for your personal sacrifice,” Bey shared with the crowd at New York’s Barclays Center. The athlete has made headlines this year for his outspoken views on social justice issues, bringing them into the conversation among sports watchers, political observers and the general public.
