On Tuesday, the 34-year-old singer/songwriter arrived at the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards in a dress that had heads on a swivel after worries she might skip the event.

A day before the show, the "In The Name of Love" singer had fans worried when she shared that she might not attend the VMAs to avoid criticism of her body.

In the TikTok video, Bebe said, “I am so anxious and stressed about going on the red carpet and, I guess, people talking about my weight. I’m not really loving myself right now. I’m not really feeling like the bad bitch that I usually am.”

But, fortunately, she arrived in a black leather dress that was all business in the front...

But (pun intended), it wasn't just the cutouts that turned heads. The dress also had a horse tail that looked like one of Ariana Grande's high ponies.

The form-fitting leather dress with the bullet-bra bustier and spaghetti strap was anonymously designed by The Uncommonist, a London-based label.

If the look seems familiar, you might remember Julia Fox wearing another design by The Uncommonist earlier this year.

According to British Vogue, the label's anonymous founder said, "By following rules, limitations are created – I want people wearing my designs to be fearless and unbothered by a passer-by’s opinion," and Bebe was the perfect model.

And, luckily, Bebe showed up to the MTV VMAs "fearless and unbothered," and her look was absolutely stunning!

The best part of the night was Shakira's family trying their darndest to avoid staring at her butt cutouts.
