Megan Thee Stallion stuns fans in naked dress: ‘Amazing!’
Megan Thee Stallion made history last week as the first female rapper to cover Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issue and celebrated by attending the launch party by wearing a dress that redefined the meaning of a naked dress.
The custom-made sheer gown by Natalia Fender featured a dramatic cut-out that started at the top of her hip and down her leg.

The gown was covered in crystals and the slit was held together with a series of rhinestone threads.
Taking to Instagram, Natalia said, “The gown took over 1800 feet of silver chain to make. It’s entirely handmade – we don’t cut any textile (we literally weave it to fit each person using our patented technique).
“We used 40 feet of vintage Swarovski silver chain for the leg chains. Additional Swarovski crystals were jump ringed into each strand. We even added crystals to the Dolce & Gabbana shoes.”
Megan shared photos from the event to Instagram with fans going nuts for the pictures, especially the fact she didn’t edit them to hide stretch marks on her thighs.
“Stunning!” one follower wrote, while another added, “It’s them natural stretch marks for me.”
“It’s refreshing to see a natural body,” someone else wrote.
“Finally… Someone who’s not afraid showing us the stretch marks on the skin,” a fourth added.
“You are unreal,” one person commented.
Megan celebrated her history-making cover last week, writing, “REAL SPORTS ILLUSTRATED SWIMSUIT EDITION COVER MODEL S**T!!! Thee first female rapper on the cover of @si_swimsuit I want to thank all the strong women in my life who inspired me to love my body and live my best hot girl life.
“It means the world to me to be on this cover DREAM COME TRUE!!”
“I have always been comfortable and confident in my own skin,” she told the magazine. “I have to give props to the strong women who raised me. My family always made me feel really good about myself. I didn’t realize how lucky I was to have grown up in such an environment.”
The Sports Illustrated cover was her second history-making moment of this year, with Megan becoming the first rapper since Lauryn Hill to take home the Grammy Award for Best New Artist.
