SEE IT: Prince’s Ex-Wife Mayte Garcia Stuns in Sheer Floral Gown for BET Awards Tribute
The most beautiful girl in the world had all eyes on her as she paid tribute to her former husband. WATCH: Prince's Epic Half-Time Show Was the Best in Super Bowl History Mayte Garcia, the woman who inspired Prince’s 1994 hit, appeared at the 2016 BET Awards on Sunday night in Los Angeles to honor the iconic musician. The 42-year-old, a professional dancer, flaunted her figure in a sheer floral backless gown featuring a flowing fishtail silhouette. Completing the look, Garcia wore red peep-toe heels to match her fiery pout, and styled her mane in an old Hollywood-inspired sideswept wave. "Garcia first met Prince in 1990 and was ultimately hired to dance on one of his tours," People Magazine previously reported. "The singer-songwriter went on to produce an album for her and they wed in 1996 in Minneapolis." "In 1996, Garcia and Prince lost a son, Gregory, a week after he was born to Pfeiffer syndrome, a rare genetic disorder that affects the skull and bones in the hands and feet," the publication added. "They formally divorced in 2000." SEE IT: David Bowie and Iman's Marriage, in Pictures And, when Prince passed away at age 57 from apparent opioid overdose in his Minnesota home. "I loved him then, I love him now and will love him eternally," says the brunette beauty to People. "He’s with our son now." See Garcia’s stunning ensemble from the BET Awards below:
