Leave it up to Megan Thee Stallion to deliver a sultry sartorial moment. On Nov. 3, the rapper released her highly-anticipated first solo single of the year, “Cobra” along with a captivating video that contained hidden messages for fans to digest. Megan has been teasing the song for the past month on her Instagram, even giving followers a peak at one of her most revealing looks to date: a brown reptile-textured thongkini.
After her lips emerge from a black screen saying “As a snake sheds its skin, we must shed our past, over and over again,” the 28 year-old star is first seen in the thongkini coming out of a massive cobra, marking her new chapter. She then quickly transitions to a black-and-white snakeskin-inspired ensemble that features a bandeau top, a maxi skirt with a thigh-high slit, and a long cape. Megan paired the look with her hair in a dramatic bun, edgy makeup, and an array of silver jewelry.
Getting to the climax of the video, she appears in a green cage where she sheds her skin, revealing a wet-look dress, then resurfacing in a metallic bodysuit with over 20 cutouts. For the last look, she accessorizes with matching earrings and a long ponytail, giving major “Renaissance” vibes. Finally, Megan finishes things off in a black embellished two-piece set, complete with coordinating arm cuffs and a vinyl neck collar.
Since her resurgence into the spotlight, the “Bongos” artist has worn everything from Barbiecore-pink corsets to rhinestone-embellished naked dresses, styled by Zerina Akers. She’s even worked with Image Architect Law Roach, most notably donning a ’70s flared-pants set inspired by Paco Rabanne’s Spring 1997 ready-to-wear collection in March.
