Lizzo Channeled Her Inner Emo Princess on the VMAs Red Carpet

Feeling fussy, walkin’ in my Balenci-ussy’s…or in this case, Jean Paul Gaultier.

Lizzo hit the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards red carpet in a billowing navy gown, giving major main-character vibes. The singer’s dress, a striking midnight blue, matches both her sheer opera gloves and her dark lipstick. Her couture gown, constructed by mastermind Glenn Martens, is part of a celebrity-loved collection with fans like Chloë Sevigny and Jada Pinkett Smith

Clearly, Lizzo is princess of darkness we never knew we needed.

Looks great. But am I the only one who’s a little disappointed she didn’t reuse her “fake boobs/fake ass” leotard? She’s a shapewear maker after all. Either way, the look won’t be the last head-turning fashion we’ll see from Lizzo tonight—the singer is slated to perform during the ceremony. 

Thanks to “About Damn Time,” she’s up for artist of the year, song of the year, best pop song, and video for good. She faces major competition from “As It Was” singer Harry Styles, but the two are hardly rivals. On July 26, Lizzo posted a TikTok holding a huge, gorgeous arrangement of flowers, with pink, orange, and red roses and chrysanthemums galore. In the caption, complete with seven long-tear emoji, the singer revealed that the flowers were sent as a gift from Styles. “Yall harry got me flowers congratulating me on about damn time going #1 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭,” she wrote on TikTok. “Thanks for the flowers, Harry!” she says in the short clip, before leaning forward to smell the bouquet with a smile.
