  • Megan Thee Stallion won Best Female Hip-Hop Artist at Sunday's BET Awards, as well as the Viewers' Choice Award for "Hot Girl Summer."
  • She gave an incredible performance in the middle of the Las Vegas desert of "Girls in the Hood" and "Savage Remix"
  • For the ceremony, Megan wore a stunning black velvet cut-out maxi skirt by Houston designer Grayscale—and you can shop it below.

Here is a vast understatement: Megan Thee Stallion had a very, very good night at Sunday's BET Awards. For one, she took home two major awards: Best Female Hip-Hop Artist and the Viewers' Choice Award for "Hot Girl Summer." What's more, she delivered a flawless, post-apocalyptic-themed performance of "Girls in the Hood" and "Savage Remix." Meg and her dancers, dressed in leather, rode through the Las Vegas desert on dirt bikes to a scaffolding stage, on which she performed in front of the Black Power fist. Below, four minutes and 22 seconds of absolutely dazzling talent: 

For the ceremony itself, which took place virtually due to the coronavirus pandemic, Megan stunned in a cut-out black velour ensemble—a maxi skirt with cut-out waist detail, and a matching long-sleeved crop top. Since words can't really do the look justice, behold:

According to Megan's stylist EJ King, the outfit was the work of Houston designer Grayscale, a fitting tribute to Meg's beloved hometown. She wore the brand's Velvet Dip Skirt, alongside a matching velvet crop top. And in extremely good news, said skirt is still available to purchase! Shop below, and thank me later!
