The last few weeks for Megan Thee Stallion have been nothing short of eventful. From performing to a jam-packed crowd at Coachella to receiving the key to her native Houston, she’s been quite busy enjoying the spotlight for her music and charity work. Now, she gets to put her fashion prowess on display, making her sophomore appearance on the red, white, and blue carpet at the 2022 Met Gala.
The superstar arrived to the ball with Moschino designer Jeremey Scott, wearing a gilded gold gown, complete with wings. The gown, designed by Scott, took on the theme literally through its intricate embroidery and embellishments and accompanying bolero resembling angel wings. The “Sweetest Pie” rapper carried the gold through-line from gold eyeshadow and gold nails down to her gold strappy heeled sandals.
For last year’s part-one iteration, the Coach ambassador channeled Old Hollywood glamour (think Diahann Carroll, Dorothy Dandridge, and Lena Horne) in a white gown covered in crystals with a tulle bustle. She carried that same visceral feeling of excess into this year’s bold gown.
Scott announced Megan Thee Stallion as “Met Girl Meg,” and going forward (or until another pseudonym comes along), that’s what we’re going to call her.
