A Lady Dior Art Bag (limited edition handbag retails for $8,500), made in a collaboration with artist Judy Chicago, is making a statement on the arm of Megan Thee Stallion.

The rapper posted her Dior look to social media on January 31, showcasing a rainbow outfit to echo the brightly iridescent hues in the handbag, which were inspired by a spiral painting by the iconic feminist artist.

"Dior’d my damn self," Megan Thee Stallion captioned her post on Instagram, which garnered over 1.4 million "likes" in a day.

On the bottom of the bag, an inscription updates the artist's title for her 1973 painting: “Let it all hang out 2020.”

The reimagined version of the classic Lady Dior handbag was the second collaboration between Chicago and Dior Creative Director Maria Grazia Chiuri. Chicago previously designed the set for Dior's goddess-inspired Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2020 runway, posing the question, 'what if women ran the world?'

Dior and British artist Marc Quinn launched the Dior Lady Art Project in 2016, subsequently inviting global artists Athi-Patra Ruga, Rina Banerjee, Wang Guangle, Jia Lee, and Eduardo Terrazas  –  and now Judy Chicago in the fifth installment – to create their own artistic takes on the classic handbag.
