Yung Gravy & Addison Rae’s Mom Sheri Easterling Go Viral in Edgy Mini Dress & Heels at MTV VMAs Red Carpet 2022

Yung Gravy and Sheri Easterling — AKA, Addison Rae’s mother — made a truly purple pair on Sunday at the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards in Newark, NJ.

While hitting the red carpet at Prudential Center, the duo made their initial couple debut in coordinating lavender outfits. Easterling’s ensemble, styled by Brandon M. Garr, featured a long-sleeved Dundas minidress with lace-up tied sides. Completing her look was a metallic purple clutch and bejeweled Alexis Bitter drop earrings. Yung Gravy, meanwhile, coordinated with Easterling in a purple and pink-striped collared shirt, black suit and black leather loafers topped with tassel accents.

During the occasion, Gravy virally referred to Easterling as “kind of the queen of MILFs” on the red carpet, according to Cosmopolitan.

When it came to footwear, Easterling’s ensemble was completed with an equally shiny set of purple Giuseppe Zanotti sandals. Her footwear included thin layered toe straps and curved counters, accented by ankle-wrapped buckled straps for added edge. Thin stiletto heels totaling at least 4 inches in height finished the pair, giving the TikTok influencer a sleek height boost in the process.
