Lizzo lends a fan her Emmy dress after viral TikTok request

Lizzo just made a fan’s dream come true. By author Aurielle Marie asked to borrow Lizzo’s beautiful red dress from the 2022 Emmys in a now-viral TikTok video, the singer gave the fan her dress to wear to a gala. The “About Damn Time” artist wore the fitted tulle ball gown from Giambattista Valli’s Spring 2022 couture collection when she accepted her award for Outstanding Competition Series to “Lizzos Beware of the Big Grrrls.” The dress in question has an off-shoulder neckline and high-low skirt, with ruffles all over.

“I know you know how it feels to be the biggest b*tch in a room and all the scrutiny and hyper-visibility that comes with it.”

On Oct. 27, Marie, essayist and author of “Gumbo Ya Ya,” posted a video on TikTok hoping to reach Lizzo, sharing that she was looking for a dress to wear to the Out100 Gala, where she will be recognized by the magazine as an honoree. Although Marie explained that this was “sands down the biggest recognition of [her] career,” she admitted that it was difficult to find the right look for the occasion. “I can’t find anything, anywhere that is ready for a big b*tch and red carpet. . . . The longer I go without anything to wear, the less I want to be there.”

She added: “I know you know what it feels like to be the biggest b*tch in a room and all the scrutiny and hyper-visibility that comes with that because I’ve seen you talk about it. And the audacity that you ” has made a mark in your career has helped me step out and be bold myself.” Marie ended the video with a prayer, asking the artist if she could wear her favorite Lizzo dress from this year’s Emmys. “I figured the worst , you could say, was no,” she said.

The video seemed to reach Lizzo in an instant. One day before the Out100 gala, on Nov. 15, Marie shared another TikTok unboxing and tried on the cool tulle number, adding that the artist even sent her a seamstress to work with. In the video, the author screamed and jumped as she opened the box and garment bag containing the dress.

When she finally put the dress on, she was initially in disbelief before tearing up and getting emotional. “I may have had a few tears on your dress @lizzo my poor darling!” she wrote next to the clip. “Words are not enough and thank you is not enough. But THANK YOU! I am speechless. Y’all! A bitch is certified LIZZO SIZE!!!!!! And LOOK AT THIS DRESS!”
