Anitta just joined a growing list of celebs, including Zendaya, Sydney Sweeney and Olivia Wilde, to sport an armored breastplate as clothing. She debuted her version of the trend at the 2022 American Music Awards at Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theater on Sunday.

The Brazilian singer wore a bronze corset-style top designed by Issey Miyake that had a belly button imprint and flared out at the bottom. The busty armored top was entirely backless, and Anitta's stylist, Ron Hartleben, paired it with a long mermaid-style white maxi skirt. Her flowing red hair was loosely curled for an effortless “wet look” by hairstylist Jesus Guerrero. Anitta’s jewelry included a chunky necklace and bracelets, and her makeup (by Luis Torres) featured an eyeliner cut-crease.

“Omg what [a] year... I have no words to explain this feeling,” the 29-year-old, who won the Favorite Female Latin Artist award, wrote on Instagram. “So many blessings. When I started this adventure of working out of Brazil I was literally just trying to experiment new stuff and have fun with this challenge … never thought it would be really possible cuz I heard SO MANY TIMES that ‘for Brazilians is impossible’… and here am I … expecting nothing but getting so many amazing awards in return. Thanks to my fans, my team, my family and myself.”
