Saweetie proved that even formal occasions need a change of a dress while in Las Vegas at the Grammy Awards on Sunday night.
The “Best Friend” rapper posed on the red carpet for a second time in a dramatic black gown by Oscar de la Renta. The bold number featured a strapless silhouette with an asymmetric bodice, gaining added glamour from a mesh cup embellished in floral crystals. Saweetie’s dynamic dress was complete with a cinched waistline and voluminous bubble skirt, complete with a thigh-high slit. Elevating the star’s ensemble were dazzling diamond stud earrings, a ring and cuff bracelet from Messika’s collaboration with Kate Moss.
Finishing the musician’s ensemble was a simple pair of black Giuseppe Zanotti heels. The sandals featured satin uppers with thin toe straps and closed counters, allowing for Saweetie’s dress to make the boldest statement. Though her heels weren’t visible, the star’s pair likely included stiletto heels totaling at least 4 inches in height.
The look boldly contrasted Saweetie’s original arrivals outfit: a hot pink bra top, maxi skirt and gloves from Valentino’s Fall 2022 collection, complete with a diamond Messika collar necklace.
