Country music sensation Lainey Wilson stole the spotlight at the 2024 People’s Choice Awards on Sunday (Feb. 18) in a daring ensemble that perfectly encapsulated her bold bell-bottom country style. 

Wilson Dons Show-Stopping Jumpsuit

Commanding attention in a skin-tight bell-bottom leopard print jumpsuit, Wilson exuded confidence as she made her way down the star-studded red carpet. The Louisiana native’s jumpsuit featured a halter neckline and a daring keyhole neck. She topped off her look with a wide-brimmed black hat. 

Wilson’s hair and makeup artist, Jess Berrios Mylott, dubbed her glam a “dusty cowgirl vibe.”

All About Her Glam

“A natural glam enhances her quintessential beauty and power. Always Sculpted glowing skin with a soft smokey eye, a neutral 90s lip for carpet. Lainey’s glam is always about enhancing her features in a way that allows HER God-given beauty to shine, so you see Lainey and not the makeup. That is dusty cowgirl glam!!”

She used Tom Ford Beauty foundation. For her lips, Mylott says she opted for Charlotte Tilbury liner and “Pink Lily lip oil In The Nude for that iconic hydrated nude lip.”

Wilson’s “dusty cowgirl” glam was completed with “Danessa Myrick’s Groundwork Palette with GXVE cream eyeshadow in Pogo.
