Dua Lipa and Megan Thee Stallion joined forces at the Grammy Awards for a cheeky homage to Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey.

While presenting the award for best new artist at music’s biggest night on Sunday, the singer and rapper recreated an iconic gag performed by Houston and Carey during the MTV Video Music Awards in 1998 — by strutting onto the stage in identical dresses.

Megan Thee Stallion accused Lipa of stealing her look, while Lipa quipped back that she was told her dress was “exclusive.”

“I’m going to have to have a talk with Donatella (Versace),” Lipa added.

And, lucky for the “Levitating” songstress, the Italian fashion designer was in the audience — and hopped on stage to sort out the fashion situation.

Versace proceeded to rip off the skirts from each of the women’s dresses, turning them into totally unique looks.

“Now we both look like winners,” Megan Thee Stallion exclaimed.

The moment was a nod to a gag Houston and Carey did at the VMAs over two decades prior. While presenting best male video, the powerhouse vocalists walked onto the stage, each wearing the same brown dress.

“That’s a one-of-a-kind, huh?” asked Carey. “It looks kind of familiar.”

“That’s what they told me,” Houston replied.

But, as Carey said, she comes “prepared for situations like this.” The “Emotions” singer ripped off her skirt, turning her fit into a whole new look, as did Houston.

“Now that’s a page-turner,” Carey said of Houston’s transformed dress. 

“No, you look good,” Houston beamed back.
