Lizzo may have skipped the official pre-Emmies red carpet, but she still offered fans an all-angle look at her daring outfit during the Sept. 12 event. The “About Damn Time” singer wore a customized version of a red tulle ballgown from Giambattista Valli’s spring 2022 couture collection, featuring a ruffled bodice, off-the-shoulder neckline, voluminous bell sleeves and a high-low skirt that cascaded behind her.
Before presenting the award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series, she toured the stage with the help of host Kenan Thompson, who held her long train as she busted out a move. Her reality show “Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grylls” also won the award for Outstanding Competition Series, allowing her to deliver an emotional acceptance speech while once again showcasing elegant design.
With input from her go-to stylist, Jason Rembert, Lizzo kept her jewelry minimal to let the outfit spotlight, wearing only Lorraine Schwartz diamond earrings. She finished the look with strappy red and clear sandals, a matching manicure by nail artist Eri Ishizu, and a topknot bun by hairstylist Shelby Swain.
Lizzo was in fashionable company at the 2022 Emmys, where Zendaya wowed in a classic black Valentino dress, Quinta Brunson glowed in a brown metallic gown, and Julia Garner rocked a Gucci look featuring a belly-baring cutout. Elle Fanning, Ayo Adebiri, Kerry Washington, and Lily James also served up standout looks.
