Mary J. Blige hit high notes at the 2023 Grammy Awards in Los Angeles tonight. The Hip Hop and Soul icon performed her hit single “Good Morning Gorgeous” during the annual ceremony. Blige received five Grammy nominations this year in the Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Best R&B Performance, Best Traditional R&B Performance, and Best R&B Song categories.
The “No More Drama” singer gave her signature thigh-high boots an edgy boost while onstage. Blige wore a sparkling crystal-embellished gown. The garment included a plunging halter neckline and a daring thigh-high slit.
To further elevate the moment, the award-winning entertainer covered her blond tresses with a dramatic wide-brimmed black hat. Blige also added dangling diamond earrings and crystal-embellished opera gloves.
The R&B artist completed her outfit with her favorite shoe style — thigh-high boots. The silhouette had a sharp, elongated pointed-toe, a thin stiletto heel and was decorated with sequin studs on the upper.
Often considered the sexiest boot silhouette, thigh-high boots most often stop mid-thigh for a leg-climbing look. Commonly made of leather or suede, thigh-high boots are most often worn with short skirts or shorts, dresses featuring high slits or very tight-fitting pants.
The 2023 Grammy Awards, which airs live at 8 p.m. ET on CBS, honors excellence and outstanding achievement in the music industry.
