Hot girl summer isn’t over just yet.

Megan Thee Stallion sizzled at the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards in an elegant, yet totally sexy red carpet look consisting of a custom see-through Brandon Blackwood gown with black underwear.

The luxuriousness didn't stop there. The “Hot Girl Summer” rapper, 28, also wore a dazzling choker, bracelets and stud earrings.

As for beauty, she landed on smokey eye makeup, wavy "wet" hair and an inches-long French manicure designed with marbled dark green tips.

Megan Thee Stallion has never been afraid to make a fashion statement on an award show carpet.

In the past, she has opted to show some skin with a thigh-high slit. (See: her Grammys red carpet looks, including an orange Dolce & Gabbana gown in 2021 and a one-shoulder animal-print dress in 2022.)

From A-line skirts to slinky bodycon dresses, the “Body” rapper does not stick to one silhouette, either. At the Vanity Fair Oscar Party in March, she wore a mermaid dress that became one of her most memorable looks to date.
