Olivia Rodrigo’s look from the 2022 iHeartRadio Music Awards is giving me deja vu.
The “traitor” singer turned heads on the red carpet Tuesday night in a structured, purple, bustier dress that felt authentically 1980s. On bottom, Rodrigo went sexy-cool, slipping into a pair of glossy, thigh-high, latex boots. The resulting look is the perfect combination of sour and sweet — ya know, like her debut album.
The lingerie-inspired ensemble (both the dress and the boots) was fresh from the runway, having just been shown in Versace’s Fall 2022 ready-to-wear collection. Giving the designer look a dose of her own flare, Rodrigo finished with a ‘90s-esque ponytail (secured with snap clips, naturally) and graphic, negative-space, winged liner.
She took home three awards in the dress, including Best New Pop Artist, TikTok Bop of the Year, for her hit “good 4 u,” and Female Artist of the Year. Avril Lavigne presented her with the latter, prompting Rodrigo to shout out 2000’s punk-pop princess in her acceptance speech. “I’m obsessed with you, you’re amazing,” she said of Lavigne.
Rodrigo joins a long list of celebs — Hailey Bieber, Dua Lipa, and Khloe Kardashian, to name a few — making the case for corsets this season. The trend is so popular, in fact, that bustier dresses were one of the leading looks on the iHeartRadio red carpet.
