You can’t talk about Lizzo without some mention of Lizzo’s outfits.

Melissa Viviane Jefferson, popularly known by her professional name Lizzo, is indeed a bold, audacious and beautiful woman. This vivacious woman has rocked some of the most darling and daring outfits we’ve ever seen. 

Although she was born in Detroit, Lizzo started her performing career in Houston, Texas. After a while, she moved to Minneapolis to start another career in hip hop. Lizzo then released two albums: Lizzobangers in 2013 and Big Grrrl Small World in 2015. She met Nice Life and Atlantic Records, after which she produced her first major label EP, Coconut Oil, in 2016.

Lizzo hadn’t yet appeared on the radar of many, but things quickly changed after the release of her third studio album, Cuz I Love You in 2019. This was the first time Lizzo knew what it felt like to be in the top five of the US Billboard 200.

From this point on, it was nothing but hits for Lizzo. Shortly after, Lizzo released “Juice” and “Tempo.” A deluxe version of the album was also released, but this version included one of Lizzo’s singles from 2017 “Truth Hurts.”

The song took the world by storm by becoming No.1 on Us Billboard Hot 100 two years after it was first released.

Around this period, another of her 2016 single “Good as Hell” was climbing quickly on charts. It went as high as the top three in the top Hot 100 and was among the top 10 singles by an artist in the UK.

This was arguably the best point in Lizzo’s career yet as she earned most of her awards and recognition during this period. She got into acting for a while, and got several awards as well.

Now, on to Lizzo’s outfits!

Lizzo Outfits: Darling Edition

Lizzo is a star on stage and she always has a way to shine like one, from the stunning red Sequin “Siren” dress she wore to the AMAs to having the tiniest purse on record still at the AMAs.

Lizzo is no different on or off the red carpet. She always takes center stage with a mix of flamboyant looks. Her blend of elegant dresses to XL marabou hats indeed makes her stand out. 

It’s amazing how the singer is very flexible in her style. She tries to have fun with her fashion so she never sticks to a particular color or silhouette. Instead, she tries out different looks and designers, constantly improving and reinventing herself.

2.  Peek-a-boo 

Who can forget this super daring outfit that Lizzo rocked at a Laker’s game? From the front, the shirt dress looks about normal. But the back? Whoo, it showed off the singer’s back side in a thong, in full view! Not only did Lizzo show up in this outfit, but she also twerked in it at the game. Needless to say this moment went viral and sparked a debate about if the outfit was appropriate for the event.
