Grammy-nominated Afrobeats artist — Oyinkansola Sarah Aderibigbe, known professionally as Ayra Starr, showed out in a sultry JÉBLANC turquoise ensemble at the Arena for 66th Grammy Awards Night in Los Angeles, styled by Janice Mahenge.

The Beninese-born Nigerian singer donned a custom hand-made two-piece gown by Candice Cuoco and Jeniece Blanchat featuring hand-sewn draped silk chiffon over a Frederick’s of Hollywood‘s Rising Star Bra with draped sleeves, embellished with crystals in Jeniece’s signature beadwork style and a pleated & draped silk chiffon wrap skirt with silk godets in the train.

Ayra paired her outfit with jewellery from perhaps the world’s most iconic jeweller — the House of Fabergé and Swarovski, sleeky-straight centre-parted hair and flawless makeup by Patrick Ta assisted by Taylor Healey featuring bold cut-creases, blush, and glossy cocoa-lined lips.
