Dreezy traded in her catsuits and Chanel slides for a gorgeous hi-low gown at this year’s Grammy Awards.
The artist hit the carpet in a black number that screamed vintage Hollywood glamour. Her dress’ vintage silhouette deserved our full attention but we couldn’t keep our eyes off of her beautiful and flawless brown skin. The perfectly subtle beauty choices made by makeup artist Chris Mychael had a huge impact.
