Camila Cabello performed ‘Havana’ at the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards in Walter Mendez

Camila Cabello performed her hit song ‘Havana’ at the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards on Sunday (March 11) in Inglewood, California.

The singer channelled her Marilyn Monroe-via-Madonna with her performance wearing a custom Walter Mendez pink satin strapless gown.

Complete with matching opera gloves, jewels and thigh-high boots, it’s clear her inspiration combines the iconic ‘Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend’ from ‘Gentlemen Prefer Blondes’ and the classic ‘Material Girl’ music video.

Prior to her performance, the singer rocked the red carpet wearing a colourful design which I feel paid homage to her Cuban roots.

There hasn’t always been a lot of love shown to Camila’s style; perhaps because she’s still in the experimental stages, but this is one of her looks I found myself loving from head-to-toe.

Rings by Melinda Maria completed her look.

    Yeah I really wish she hadn’t

    It’s the boots in the performance look that I really take issue with. They do her no favors. I agree that the top is totally wrong for the second look.

    The first is horrible. Its an extremely tacky, sloppy Monroe look. Terrible.
    The skirt in the second is okay but the top is wrong with it. looks disjointed.

      In case she was channeling Madonna’s look in Material girl, I think she should go back and re-watch that video.
      The first look is hideous; I cannot believe it is custom made

      I think the skirt in the second look is a bit tight but it is miles better than her 1st look

    she’s never made a good fashion choice and these are no exceptions. when will she cut her stylist loose? they clearly hate her.

      +1 Every single look is awful! How is that even possible?

    Camila really hasn’t found her fashion lane yet, definitely needs a change of stylist, have yet to see something good from her.

    The performance look is a strong WDOTY contender. Dislike the red carpet look as well.

    oh, honey, no. NO. You aren’t Marilyn or Madonna Faux Marilyn. This is all just terrible.

    Honestly her stylist is always letting her down. Most of her looks are average or straight up bad.
    the first outfit is not flattering, neither is the second

    Swap in a different top & styling with the RC look and it’s…ok.
    The performance look is one of the worst messes I’ve ever seen.

    I hate all her looks, I think it’s not so difficult to dress a pretty girl in her 20s. WDOTY worthy.

    that performance dress is custom?? i’ve seen polyester halloween costumes that fit better than that. and with better hair. again the hair ruins the second look.

    The girl is pretty, but she can’t dress to save her life.

    I dislike both looks (although the RC one had some potential but that hair and weird top ruined it).

      my sentiment exactly, performance look is a horrible wrinkld mess. not holding my breath for her fashion choices

    • Mimi March 12, 2018 at 11:44 am #

      Pretty sure she has the same stylist as Olivia Culpo. Until she changes she doesn’t have a chance!
