Lizzo Sweetens Up the Brit Awards in a Gown That’s Good Enough to Eat

Today, the 2020 Brit Awards in London, England got a whole lot sweeter thanks to Lizzo. The “Juice” singer wowed in a chocolaty frock by Moschino that infused the red carpet with a welcome sugar high. Her custom creation by Jeremy Scott was inspired by the designer’s very first collection for the Italian fashion house in 2014. More than five years later, his junk food couture is clearly just as smile-inducing.

The fall 2014 Moschino collection put a high-fashion twist on a number of different snacks, including Cheetos gowns and those iconic McDonalds-inspired accessories, such as a Happy Meal bag and the Golden Arches phone cases that were everywhere on the street style scene. The singer’s chocolate bar gown originally appeared on the runway as a strapless, floor length style—Lizzo modernized it by making it one-shouldered, though she kept its original Hershey’s-inspired logo and “Milk Chocolate” lettering. (A 25-cents symbol also appears near the neckline, though something tells us this creation goes for much more than that.)

Always one to take details to the next level, Lizzo even finished off the look with a chocolate bar-shaped clutch (hungry, yet?), as well as tons of red carpet-worthy jewels, including diamond rings and hoops. Consider her fully committed take a fresh reminder that fashion should be fun—deliciously so.
