Megan Thee Stallion came this week to slay.
After making history as the first rapper to cover the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue (released July 22), Megan celebrated by rocking a show-stopping crystal-covered dress.
According to Bazaar, the 26-year-old Houston Hottie pulled up to the SI launch party at the Hard Rock Cafe in Hollywood, Florida, Friday (July 23) in a custom Natalia Fedner gown. The gown featured a high slit with crystals shining across her legs and neckline.
To match the show-stopping dress, the Grammy Award-winning artist, whose real name is Megan Jovon Ruth Pete, also wore diamond drop earrings, a “gem-adorned” pair of heels, and a shiny ear cuff, the report notes. To top it off, she also sported a spiky up-do to match the Rock & Roll aesthetic of the Hard Rock Cafe. Saturday (July 24), she released photos of the outfit on social media, garnering over 1 million likes.
In a recent interview with BAZAAR, the artist talked about switching up her style on the red carpet in an effort to be more natural and authentic.
“I’m realizing that I don’t have to be in full glam every time you see me because I’m just getting more comfortable with myself and more comfortable with my skin,” She tells the publication, “I know that I’m a person that everybody looks to, and they’re like, ‘Oh, Megan, she’s a confident woman. She’s so strong.’ But you have to go through things to become that person.”
