Are we at the MTV VMAs or this year’s Met Gala? Lizzo’s red carpet look makes it hard to tell—the singer brought her campy fashion A-game in full force. The “Juice” singer, who is nominated for Best New Artist, channelled the fabulously over-the-top aesthetic of this year’s Met theme in a custom creation by Moschino’s Jeremy Scott. And the ensemble brought cheeky style to an entire new level.
The word “siren” was printed all over Lizzo’s strapless, floor-length, red-sequined dress, as if to announce, “Sound the alarm, I’ve arrived!” She topped off the look with a red and silver leather boa—because, of course, more is always more. Meanwhile, a necklace of white diamonds by Gismondi 1754 added the right amount of bling, and her sky-high bouffant played up the Old Hollywood feel of the statement gown. Call it the fashion moment the VMAs didn’t know it needed, but sure as hell wanted.
