Saweetie's Fuchsia Opera Gloves Take Centre Stage on the Grammys Red Carpet
Saweetie arrived on the 2022 Grammys red carpet wearing a custom fuchsia Valentino look, which drew inspiration from Pierpaolo Piccioli’s fall 2022 collection that exclusively focused on the powerful pink shade. The rapper’s three-piece ensemble – consisting of a bow-adorned bralette, opera-length gloves, and a full skirt – is a slight modification on the second look from Piccioli’s latest offering. The Valentino team reportedly turned it around for the singer in just one week, according to E!’s live coverage of the 2022 red carpet. During her E! interview, Saweetie said that the look is “representing her crown chakra.” She accessorised with a Messika choker full of pear-shaped diamonds, diamond-encrusted bangles by Dena Kemp, and stud earrings, contributing to a fully glamorous moment. And while Saweetie will be changing into a second look during the evening, this vibrant red carpet ensemble is sure to be a favourite on many best dressed lists. When talking to E! host Laverne Cox, she experienced a joyful and emotional moment as she acknowledged her nominations for best new artist and best rap song with her hit track “Best Friend,” also featuring Doja Cat.
Fuchsia is a particularly popular colour choice for the stars at this evening’s Grammys, with Billy Porter (also in Valentino), Chrissy Teigen in Nicole + Felicia Couture, and St. Vincent in Gucci carrying out the trend. Valentino is also popping up on many celebrities, from Japanese Breakfast to Sofia Carson to Chloe Bailey. Ahead, enjoy Saweetie’s own creative interpretation of the eye-catching hue.
