Artists Megan Thee Stallion and Dua Lipa took to stage Sunday night to present the Best New Artist award at the 64th annual Grammys, as they re-created a moment in popular culture history with a wardrobe mishap.
Both singers reached for the microphone in the same black Versace wrap dress and a chunky gold necklace that turned to each other in false anger. “Don’t steal my look,” Megan The Stallion said. Dua Lipa replied, “I’ve been told that if I get the exclusive offer, I’m going to have to talk to Donatella.”
Moments later, the 66-year-old Italian fashion designer appeared on stage in a gold sequined dress, muttered in Italian. She immediately removed the detachable skirt from both artists. “Do you know what? Let’s do this,” she said, revealing a barely-miniature Dua Lipa hem, leaving Megan Thee Stallion with a thigh-high midi split. “These are my girls now,” Versace said before leaving the stage. Meghan added, “Thank you Donatella! Now we both sound like a winner.”
