The 57-year-old megastar dazzled onlookers in an outfit that resembled her iconic leopard-print two-piece, which she wore in the music video for her ‘90s smash, “That Don’t Impress Me Much.”
Twain posed for pictures in a leopard-themed body-con dress featuring sheer detailing, which covered her stomach, arms, and hands. The gown also featured a hood similar to the one she wore in her timeless music video for the female-empowerment anthem.
The Canadian-born star, however, opted out of wearing leopard-printed bottoms. Instead, she rocked a velvet skirt, which provided an updated take on a look that will never go out of style. The five-time Grammy Award-winning artist and the top-selling female country pop artist of all time, didn’t need to accessorize her look since she debuted the outfit with a bold hair color. She made a statement with fun pink-colored locks that made her ensemble pop even more!
Twain is no stranger to embracing animal-print, but that isn’t the only iconic style from her closet. Fans will recall, she recently celebrated a fashion moment at a previous awards show. During the 15th Annual Academy of Country Music Honors in Nashville, Tenn., where she received the ACM Poet’s Award, Twain loaned Kelsea Ballerini her signature 1999 Grammy Awards long-sleeved gown.
The dress, which had been on display at the Grammy museum, fitted Ballerini to a tee.

“If your hero is Shania Twain, meet your hero. You may become friends and she may even let you wear THE dress. 🤍,” Ballerini wrote in an Instagram post, at the time.
Aside from turning heads with a look that will jog plenty of memories, Twain, who will release her Queen of Me album in February of 2023, took to the stage during the ceremony. She performed a nearly 10-minute medley of hits, including “Any Man of Mine,” “That Don’t Impress Me Much,” and “Man! I Feel Like A Woman!” Twain also fit her latest single, “Waking Up Dreaming,” into the mix of songs.
“I’m honored to be here and to be recognized. It’s just lovely,” Twain told Laverne Cox before her performance. “It’s fun and exciting to be getting on the stage and kicking some butt out there.”

“This is such a privilege and dream,” Twain said in her acceptance speech. “Am I dreaming? I really am, I think. Thank you so much for presenting me with this award and for highlighting my work as having a significant impact. I’m not sure if that’s the right thing to say, but I always feel that’s my wish to inspire people with my music.”
“I always miss my mother at these moments in my life,” she said, adding a personal touch to her message. “She would’ve loved watching her little girl living this moment right now. But my fans, my friends, my team, you are the ones who fill that space when, I mean, not my mother’s space, but I think that you’re here with me, and we’re celebrating together, and you’ve made me feel loved and special my whole working life. I’ll always be grateful for that. Thank you.”
