Lizzo shines in a feathered Gucci dress on the 2022 BET Awards red carpet – WWD
Lizzo updated classic old Hollywood glamor for her latest red carpet appearance, wearing a dress reminiscent of a 1920s feather dress at the 2022 BET Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday.
To attend the annual celebration of black talent and culture, Lizzo – who was styled by Jason Rembert – wore a Gucci dress draped in deep navy shimmering fabric trimmed with gauzy black feathers. The dress featured a plunging neckline partially trimmed with black lace, which plunged into a gathered waistband-like midsection wrapped around the torso. Lizzo’s semi-sheer skirt featured a high slit extending to her left hip, which showed off the singer’s towering black peep-toe platform heels with an ankle strap. Adding to the retro glam inspiration, Lizzo’s bell sleeves and floor-sweeping hem were both trimmed with black feathers.
The star wore her hair down her back, adding slicked back finger waves to the top of her head decorated with delicately swirled baby hair. The intricate hairstyle showed off Lizzo’s swirling crystal earrings. Her makeup centered around a bronzed lip, flushed cheeks, and a smoky charcoal-rimmed eye.
Lizzo is not nominated for the 2022 BET Awards, as she has not released an album since 2019. Her upcoming album “Special,” which features the hit song “About Damn Time,” is due out July 15, and will be eligible for the awards next year. Lizzo is however set to perform at the 2022 BET Awards.
The BET Rewards celebrate the achievements of musicians, actors, athletes and more in various fields of entertainment. The first BET Awards were held in 2001 to celebrate black culture and black excellence. Taraji P. Henson is the host of this year’s show with performances from Lizzo, Latto and Jack Harlow. Major nominations include Doja Cat with six nods, Ari Lennox and Drake with four nods each.
