Lizzo Named Entertainer Of The Year At 2020 NAACP Image Awards – Video

Lizzo is no stranger to making red-carpet statements – from the now-iconic tiny Valentino handbag she wore to the American Music Awards to an angelic Versace gown she sported at the Grammys. Most recently, the “Juice” singer was named entertainer of the year at the 51st NAACP Image Awards, held in Pasadena, California, on Saturday, and in true Lizzo fashion, she arrived in a showstopping gown.

Lizzo’s patchwork-design gown was a custom piece from Mary Katrantzou, who also designed the black-and-white, $37,000, optical-illusion-esque cape Lizzo wore upside-down on the cover of “Time” in December 2019.

The singer’s colorful, shimmery dress featured a variety of patterns, including designs that appear to be reminiscent of elements from ancient civilization, which Katrantzou previously told Insider style reporter Celia Fernandez was an inspiration for previous designs.

The rainbow-printed gown also featured a special, custom detail: Lizzo’s name in glittery black text on the side.

To accessorize, Lizzo wore a handbag made to look like a block of gold, as well as matching jewelry, both from designer Lynn Bann, according to the singer’s stylist, Brett Alan Nelson. She also wore pointed-toe heels from Smash Shoes.

Lizzo’s acceptance speech garnered a standing ovation.

“I just want to shout out all the big black girls I bring on stage with me. I do that because I want them to know that they are the trophies,” Lizzo said.

“Since this is the final award of the night, I don’t even want to make it about me. Every last one of you, you are the award, we are so special, we are such a beautiful people. This is just a reminder of all the incredible things we can do,” she continued.

“Keep on being an award,” Lizzo added.
