Saweetie Heats Up the Met Gala in a Dress Inspired by Filipino and Black American Heritage Flags
Icy girl is on fire.
Filipino-American rapper Saweetie stole the show at the 2021 Met Gala in a custom Christian Cowan ensemble. Made exclusively for Saweetie, the dress is a collaboration between the rapper and the designer that took 24 hours to create.
Naturally, it’s only right that Icy Girl is embellished with 10 million crystals.
This year’s Met theme is "In America: A Lexicon of Fashion,” and the musician took that to heart, using her dress to pay homage to her roots as a biracial American woman.
“Both the flag striping [in the train represent] the Black American Heritage flag and the Filipino flag. Because I’m Black and Filipino. That’s what makes me an American girl,” said Saweetie.
Let’s take a look at all the glorious angles of Saweetie, who clearly understood the assignment.
