Editor’s note: This article has been updated to include the names of Eve’s hair-and-makeup team.
The good life has always looked good on rapper, singer, actress and mogul Eve Jihan Jeffers-Cooper—the once self-proclaimed “pit bull in a skirt” best known to us as Eve. But last night, she stopped the show before it even began at the 2018 Grammy Awards in New York City.
Ma’am. Mrs. Cooper, if you’re nasty.
Wearing a plunging, crystal-striped pantsuit by Naeem Khan accented with jewelry by Chopard and Paige Novick and her trademark paw-print tattoos, the newest host of The Talk earned our first applause of the night when she stepped onto the red carpet at Madison Square Garden in her Charlotte Olympia heels.
It was the look The Glow Up gang couldn’t stop talking about—even after she made a costume change to present in a similarly silhouetted crimson sequined tuxedo jacket and black satin pants, this time styled with a black beaded bib necklace.
The Grammy-winning star is famous for doing her own makeup—and even considered a career as a makeup artist before hitting it big as a recording artist. But for this year’s Grammys, makeup artist Ernesto Casillas gave Eve her perfectly executed plum-hued smoky eyes and glossed lips, while hairstylist Angela Christine sideswept her hair into a gorgeous, honey-colored cascade of waves.
It’s great to see Eve back on our radar as a red-carpet regular. She hasn’t missed a beat—and never fails to blow our minds!
