Lizzo Stuns in Red Maison Valentino Dress and Manolo Blahnik Heels on Cover of Vogue

Vogue’s October issue is sure to be a hit with Lizzo gracing the covers in a flowing red Maison Valentino dress discussing her thoughts on positive mentality, racial injustice and the upcoming election.

Dressed in black Manolo Blahnik heels and Jason of Beverly Hills earrings and jewelry from Tiffany & Co., the American singer has her hair pulled up in a tight top knot, crowning her head.

“I am the first big black woman on the cover of @voguemagazine. The first black anything feels overdue,” Lizzo wrote. “But our time has come. To all my black girls, if someone like you hasn’t done it yet— BE THE FIRST.”

Her Manolo Blahnik pumps are designed with a classic pointed-toe and come in black suede with leather lining and a padded insole, making for the perfect closet staple. The heels retail for $665 at Saks Fifth Avenue.

In other gorgeous shots from the photoshoot, the “Truth Hurts” singer shows of a number of incredible looks from a pink taffeta dress by Moschino Couture to a beaded top and skirt by LaQuan Smith.

‘Early in her career, Lizzo says, she was told by music-industry executives, “You can’t go white to Black. But you can go from Black to white.” Her response: “‘Well, I’m a Black woman. So I can do just about anything I want to do.’ How dare these people sit up and tell me who my music is going to appeal to or not?”… “When I go hiking or whatever,” Lizzo tells me, “it’s Black girls being like, ‘I like your music.’ ‘Hey, that’s Lizzo.’” These Black fans confirm for Lizzo what she already knows, that she’s “a Black woman making music from a Black experience”—and that her message can speak to anyone.’ – @voguemagazine story by Claudia Rankine.

Frequently updating her TikTok with trending dance routines and glimpses into her everyday life including home-cooked meals and stream-of-conscious dialogue, Lizzo uses her social media platform to connect with her fans.

Earlier this week, Lizzo wore a daring weekend ensemble with a brocade patterned gold, black and white set paired with embellished slip-on mules. Her shoes appeared to be a signature silhouette from Sophia Webster, coated in rainbow gems and on sale for $357 at Farfetch.com.
