Lizzo Sends a Strong Message With Her Dress at the 2020 Billboard Music Awards

Lizzo took the stage at the 2020 Billboard Music Awards and automatically sent a strong message.

The “Truth Hurts” singer accepted the Top Song Sales Artist award at tonight’s show in a bold one-shoulder mini dress, coated in the word “Vote” ahead of the upcoming November election. The design is a custom take on a gown that debuted during Christian Siriano’s spring ’21 runway show during New York Fashion Week in September; the pull-sleeve full-length version of the gown retails for $3,800 on the designer’s website.

As for shoes, the “Good As Hell” songstress pulled off one of the year’s most unexpected footwear trends: big-toe sandals. Lizzo’s version of the style came in the form of thin-strap black heels with an ankle-wrap detail.

Big-toe silhouettes became a celebrity-endorsed style last summer and have since continued to appear on the likes of Katy Perry, Gabrielle Union and Katie Holmes amongst others.
