Lizzo arrived at the 2022 MTV VMAs looking like a complete couture fantasy. Wearing a voluminous, black taffeta gown by Jean Paul Gaultier, designed by Glenn Martens, the guest looked like she was floating on the red carpet. She paired the design with gold accessories, stacking large hoops and cuffs next to her ears and wearing a gold lip ring. She further echoed the moody essence of her glam gown with black lipstick and a sleek, slicked-back hairstyle.
The gown was originally shown as part of Martens’ guest-designed collection for couturier Jean Paul Gaultier in January of this year. Styled by Brett Alan Nelson, Lizzo took to Instagram to mark the moment, captioning a photo of her in the design, “Outfit off the runway.” “@vmas……she’s hereeeeeee.”
The “About Damn Time” artist is no stranger to the VMAs red carpet or stage, donning a custom red sequined Moschino gown and delivering a show-stopping performance on the main stage in 2019. This year, she was nominated for four awards, including Song of the Year, Best Pop Song, and Artist of the Year. He also performed the next single from his latest album, “2 Be Loved,” joining sure-to-be memorable performances from Nicki Minaj, Bad Bunny and Anittar.
