See What Lizzo (and Some Other People Who Were There, Too) Wore to the 2019 MTV VMAs

Apparently she was not the only one on the red carpet?

The 2019 MTV Video Music Awards were a celebration of the year's best music and videos, sure, but they were also a chance for musicians and music-adjacent celebrities to get delightfully quirky with their fashion. The absolute star of the show, hands down, was Lizzo, who first walked the red carpet in a red sequin dress and feather boa — custom Moschino, of course — emblazoned with the word "siren" all over. She without a doubt was having the most fun on a red carpet full of people having fun, and she kept the party going throughout the night, during her performances and while watching others perform (more on that in a moment).

Other style standouts from the event — and there were other style standouts! — included an ageless, denim-clad Lenny Kravitz who may well have time-traveled from the early '90s; Diplo's white embroidered cowboy getup by The Elder Statesman; Gigi and Bella Hadid's monochromatic beige sister act; Alison Brie's sternum-baring Elie Saab LBD; and Shawn Mendes' dark teal suit (which, though it looked good, regrettably presented its own questions of tact, given its controversial designers, Dolce & Gabbana). 

All in all, it was an evening full of appropriately zany, weird and wonderfully off-kilter fashion — and it was apparent that the attendees showed up to have fun, not just with their sartorial choices, but also throughout the entire event. (See: Lizzo's personal, bedazzled bottle of Patrón that accompanied her inside the awards show and on stage, possibly de-throning Rihanna's wine glass as the new coveted cool-kid accessory.)
