The “Savage” rapper, 28, graced the red carpet at the Sunday, April 2, ceremony in her native Texas, wearing a figure-hugging blue gown by Defaïence. The floor-length number featured a high neckline, long sleeves and a mermaid skirt. The most standout detail of the ensemble, however, was the racy cutout at Megan’s waist. The sultry opening partially exposed the hitmaker’s bikini line and was finished a protruding white appliqué. 

The “Captain Hook” artist complemented the garment with chunky white hoops, matching bracelets and snowy nails. For glam, Megan rocked icy eyeshadow, bronze cheeks and a lined lip. She wore her hair in springy curls, giving the outfit a retro feel. 

Megan joins a host of A-listers who will be presenting awards during the Sunday soirée. Noah Schnapp and Travis Kelce are also slated to take the stage and announce the evening’s winners.
