Anitta attended Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards in Newark, New Jersey wearing a bold red Schiaparelli couture gown.
The Brazilian singer, whose international appeal has earned her more than 63,000,000 Instagram followers, arrived at the MTV VMAs in an asymmetrical red corset dress with a heart motif detailing. The dress is from Schiaparelli’s fall 2022 couture collection, which took inspiration from creative director Daniel Roseberry’s teenage years, particularly the work of Christian Lacroix.
Anitta also made a political statement by wearing the dress. As the first Brazilian to ever perform at the VMAs, she was wearing the colors of former Brazilian president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva’s party, who is leading in the polls against the incumbent Brazilian president, Jair Bolsonaro, in this year’s presidential election. Anitta said she was wearing Brazil’s heart on her dress, manifesting her desire for change.
Anitta complemented her look with Tiffany & Co. jewelry. This included a large silver cuff and several diamond rings, as well as a pair of earrings that resembled flowers. Her red platform open-toe strappy sandals were by D’accori.
Anitta cut her hair in a single strand to enhance her beauty. She chose a bold nude lip, bright red blush, smoky eyeshadows with hints purple, brown, and scarlet, and sharp eyebrows.
Anitta performed her hit single’s first televised performance “Envolver.”She was also awarded her first Moonman award as Best Latin Artist.
