Megan Thee Stallion’s rise to prominence has mirrored her fashion evolution. At some of the biggest red carpets—from the Met Gala to the Academy Awards—the Houston Hot Girl might show up in either denim cutoffs, fishnets and pink camouflage chaps, or opera gloves and gowns. And once the campaigns started rolling in—first with Coach and then with Calvin Klein—the musician cemented her status as a force to be reckoned with, going on to become a regular in outfits from Jean Paul Gaultier, Mônot, and Mugler.
Her music videos are a source of beauty and style inspiration as much as her red carpet moments are—having evolved from that of a rising rapper to a glam goddess. She’s not afraid to give hot pink, baby blue, or deep purple a try, and is no stranger to flashing a bit of skin on a starry step and repeat. Below, a look back at Megan Thee Stallion’s best red carpet moments.
