Lizzo wears Jean Paul Gaultier Couture at the MTV Video Music Awards
At this point, it’s to be expected, but we’re still blown away by how hard Lizzo kills on red carpets. The woman apparently can’t go wrong, this time dominating the MTV Video Music Awards in the voluminous and decadent Jean Paul Gaultier.
Lizzo is up for two major awards – Artist of the Year and Song of the Year for her huge hit, “About Damn Time”, which topped TikTok and the charts earlier this year. Naturally, she needed a red carpet dress that epitomized that level of industry dominance. That’s definitely it.
This theatrical dress was made by Glenn Martens, originally for the fashion house’s Spring/Summer 22 collection, his first foray into couture as he accepted guest designer titles.
Lizzo opted to lean into the ethereal shape and moody blue-black hue, pairing the dress with matching color lips, a faux lip ring and sleek, wet hair.
Sheer navy gloves and gold jewelry completed the look, and while we’re not sure exactly how she’ll sit during the show without disappearing into all that material, we’re pretty confident she’s already been the one. best on the ground from a perspective fashion.
It’s been a rough week for Lizzo, with comedian Aries Spears using the artist as a punchline in a recent interview, before attacking the body positivity movement. Seemingly in response, Lizzo posted a working out TikTok, captioning it “”I hope your day is better than mine, I feel like shit”, before Tweeter “I had so much fun crying myself to sleep last night that I think I’m going to do it again tonight.”
Hopefully tonight, the beautiful and talented performer wins an armful of awards, the best kind of revenge.
