Megan Thee Stallion made waves with her look and her speech at the 2021 Glamour Women of the Year Awards Monday night.
The “Savage” rapper was photographed arriving at the Rainbow Room in New York City, where the event was held, sporting a head-turning black custom Mônot spring ’22 dress featuring long sleeves with cut-out details that gave way to gloves. She styled the belly-bearing number with a sparkling clutch, earrings and a pair of strappy, glittering sandals. She wore Jimmy Choo’s Josefine sandal and carried the brand’s Eclipse clutch.
At the ceremony, she was honored by legendary hip hop group Salt-N-Pepa. “She is Thee Stallion. Beautiful, bold, assertive, fearless. I love everything that she’s doing,” Pepa said.
“When Salt-N-Pepa started, everything was a struggle. There were so few women in the game back in the day. We helped open doors, yes, we did. But Megan, she came and kicked the door down, pulled up a seat at the table, ordered a big dinner and poured Hottie Sauce all over the damn thing. She is doing it well, henny. Pushing it real good.”
As the 26-year-old rap star took the stage, she told the crowd, “I’ve been in tears all night because everyone is so inspiring.” She also got emotional during her speech while thanking her late mother, Holly Thomas, who passed away in 2019.
The rapper took to Instagram to share some photos and videos from the special event and captioned the post: “Tonight was so amazing! Thank you @glamourmag for naming me one of the WOMEN OF THE YEAR!!! Congratulations to all of the women that were celebrated tonight.”
