Megan Thee Stallion’s appearance on the front of Harper’s Bazaar marks an important stride toward diversity in the world of fashion.
The Houston rapper, born Megan Jovon Ruth Pete, dons a Chanel cape on the magazine’s March 2021 cover – a nod, perhaps, to her superhero status.
At only 26, Megan Thee Stallion has already taken the music industry by storm. She was named one of Time’s 100 most influential people; won Best Hip Hop Video for her song “Savage” at MTV’s 2020 VMAs; topped the Billboard 100 chart with “WAP,” a collaboration with Cardi B; and even worked with Beyoncé.
She has also become a sex and style icon, joining a Savage x Fenty campaign and inking a deal with Revlon.
But Megan Thee Stallion doesn’t need anyone to praise her accomplishments or her beauty. In fact, she’s unabashedly proclaimed herself a “hot girl” – a mantra she invites women of all skin colors and body types to own and celebrate.
