Chloë Bailey is packing a punch in silver at the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards.

The singer arrived at tonight's festivities channeling goddess energy in an entirely metallic gown. The silver-beaded piece included a black mesh bustier, draping around the waist, and a thigh-high leg slit. Her accessories were just as dazzling, including her diamond leaf bracelet, diamond rings, and bedazzled blush manicure.

Chloë's debut solo single, "Have Mercy," is up for an award tonight in the category of Best R&B. She is also among tonight's presenters, alongside Ashley Graham, Avril Lavigne, Dove Cameron, Lili Reinhart, and more.

The singer released "Have Mercy" back in September 2021 and performed the single for the first time at last year's VMAs.

She previously talked to MTV about the making of the song's explosive music video. "Men can glorify ass in their videos. I want to do it with this in an artful, really fun, beautiful way," she told the outlet. "I think it's so great how women can claim ownership of their bodies and not let the world do it. We get to do it in the way that we want to."

The video's visuals leaned into a "modern-day Medusa" myth, Chloë explained. "I wanted to make it all about ass, but in an artistic way," she continued. "I think it's so cool how women have this incredible power. They can leave men in a trance with their bodies and their spirits and the way they carry themselves."
