The Kennedy Center Honors is an annual honor given to those in the performing arts for their groundbreaking contribution to American culture.
At this year's 40th annual Kennedy Center Honors gala in Washington D.C., our very own Gloria Estefan was among the five figures who were recognized thanks to her impressive musical career. Celebrities such as Eva Longoria were present on this special night, broadcasted on December 26, to take a look back at the hitmaker's achievements. "No one ever gave a song more emotional honesty than my friend Gloria Estefan," the soon-to-be mommy told the audience.
But one of the most special moments of the night was when Becky G performed Estefan's "Mi Tierra," a song that pays tribute to her Cuban roots. The Mexican-American singer, looked como la flor as she sang the popular single, in what appeared to be a Selena Quintanilla-inspired bustier. The red and black bedazzled bra looked like an exact replica of the bustier the late singer wore for the 1993 Tejano Music Awards.
"Besos para la reina. This is a moment I will never forget!! @gloriaestefanyou are a true icon and I am honored! Gracias @jonsecada for presenting my tribute! Thank you @KennedyCenter Honors #KCHonors," the 20-year-old wrote, remembering her performance.
While Becky G has yet to comment whether the outfit choice was intentional, Twitter users were quick to point out the obvious.

What is your thought on Becky G's outfit choice? Was it appropriate for Gloria Estefan's tribute performance?
