Megan Thee Stallion’s ‘Diamond’ Grammy Dress

Rapper Megan Thee Stallion picked up three awards, including Best New Artist, at last week’s Grammys. She was also among the best-dressed, with fashion pundits noting that her Dolce & Gabbana gown – set off with Chopard jewellery – resembles Marilyn’s ‘Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend’ costume, designed by Travilla for her signature number in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.

While Marilyn’s pink sheath was comparatively demure, Megan’s slit leg recalls Marilyn’s daring red gown in Blondes’‘ opening number, ‘Two Little Girls From Little Rock’; and the fiery orange sported by Megan is echoed by Marilyn’s dress in the dinner scene. And Megan’s stellar connection is further enhanced by ‘Diamonds’, her duet with Normani – the soundtrack to Margot Robbie’s 2020 retread of the Monroe classic in her Harley Quinn movie, Birds of Prey.
