The waves! The ruffles!
Texas girls do it better, and Megan Thee Stallion’s 2021 Met Gala look proved that for any doubters. The Houston native fit right in on the red carpet in New York City on Sept. 13 and slayed on the steps of the Met Museum. From the first glance eagle-eyed fans got of the “Savage” singer’s look outside of the Mark Hotel to her finally arriving on the red carpet, her look turned heads wherever she went.
Stallion was dressed head to toe in Coach, which shouldn’t come as a huge surprise, since the rapper and songwriter has been collaborating with the iconic brand since earlier this year. Stallion has been the model and spokesperson for Coach’s pillow tabby bag and Coach’s collaboration with the Japanese streetwear brand BAPE that came out in July 2021.
The Coach look she rocked on the red carpet was a mix of Old Hollywood glamor with a pop of ‘80s fluff, and Stallion made the completed look work in the way only she can. With the soft, cascading waves in her hair, Stallion looked like a movie starlet straight out of the 1950s, but when your gaze falls to the base of her dress, you’re brought into a whole other decade entirely.
The asymmetrical leg cut in her dress was adorned with puffed ‘80s-style tulle that fell perfectly down the curves of her body-ody-ody. Stallion accessorized with glam drop earrings, a stunning diamond bracelet, and a small wristlet purse. Stallion is also wearing a mother of pearls and diamond 18K gold ring from Fernando Jorge. Strappy rhinestone heels finished off the look, and even though it was Stallion’s first ever Met Gala, she showed up like a seasoned professional with a look that was as dynamic and multi-faceted as she is. Stallion’s dramatic cat eye look and matte lip only intensified the drama of her stunning look.
One thing’s for sure: I’d give my left arm to be at the after parties the stars attended after the Met Gala, because it’s been a long time since these fashionistas have gotten together for an event like this in person. Plus, with attendees like Meg Thee Stallion, the parties are only getting hotter.
