For footwear, Megan Thee Stallion wore a pair of sparkling sandals. The shoes boasted metallic silver stiletto heels and ankle straps, with crystal-embellished toe slides. Their high shine was a perfect match for the rapper’s jewelry and dress straps. Megan added to the sparkle by accessorizing with a silver chain anklet.
