Megan’s eye-catching number had dramatic slits down each leg that were held together by jeweled strands, which were also present across the bust.

Layered beneath her gown was a tiny silver thong. 

She slipped her feet into a pair of strappy heels adorned with rhinestones that exposed her bright white pedicure.

The Texas native posed from the side on the event’s step-and-repeat in order to give shutterbugs a better view of her pert derriere.

‘Thee first female rapper on the cover of @si_swimsuit,’ she added with two cry-face emojis indicating she was overcome with emotion.

Inside the magazine, the Savage hitmaker wore a pink petal-themed bikini top, with green bottoms. 

Stallion spoke to PEOPLE about the honor, saying: ‘When I got the call that they wanted me on the cover, I was like, “Wha—? Me?” And to be the first female rapper on the swim cover makes it extra special.’

While saying the shoot itself was ‘magical’ the rapper admitted a lot of hard work went into her sculpted physique.

‘I had been training for months and I was super prepared. I got into the shoot right away. [Photographer] James [Macari] said he usually doesn’t get into the water until the fourth or fifth set-up, but we were both in the ocean from the start.’

She added: ‘The day was perfect and I had a blast.’
