Lizzo in custom Versace at the 2020 Grammys: one of the best looks?

Singer Lizzo wearing an Atelier Versace dress, Rene Caovilla shoes and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry arrives at the 62nd Annual GRAMMY Awards held at Staples Center on January 26, 2020 in Los Angeles, California, United States.

I actually felt a little bit sorry for Lizzo! I thought it was going to be her night, and Lizzo kind of thought it would be her night too. But Lizzo forgot that the Grammys really don’t like to give awards to black artists who have had huge albums and breakout years. Billie Eilish swept all of the major categories, the same ones Lizzo was up for. Well… at least they let Lizzo open the show with a medley, I guess. And Lizzo dressed like it was going to be her night too – she wore this custom Versace look and she was easily one of the best-dressed women there. I love that she went all-out too. She looked beautiful, and she did take home three Grammys: Pop Solo, Urban Contemporary Album and Traditional R&B Performance (it’s crazy that she fit in all three categories, right?).

Lil Nas X also wore Versace and also took home some Grammys, for Pop Duo and Music Video for “Old Town Road.” And he got my award for Most Bonkers Performance of the Grammys, for this insane hodge-podge of BTS, Billy Ray Cyrus, Mason Ramsey (the yodeling child) and f–kboi Diplo. It was a glorious mess and everyone seemed to have fun with it.

Alicia Keys had a lot of costume changes, but she wore this Versace gown throughout a big chunk of her hosting duties. It’s a lovely dress and she looked beautiful. Y’all know how I feel about Keys though so I won’t repeat myself. It’s like a Laura Dern-level plucking-my-last-nerve nemesis status though.

    LOVE an old Hollywood glamour look. She can pull off such a range of outfits

  2. Erinn says:

    She looks STUNNING in that gown. And Lil Nas X – you just can’t help but cheer up when you see that guy. He’s great.

    I’m sorry for Lizzo, but I’m really happy for Billie.

  3. Kristina says:

    Lizzo looked really, really great. Beautiful hair, makeup, and clothing. Loved the white gown and the shape of the bodice.

    • smcollins says:

      Agreed, except I don’t really care for the stole. It takes away from/sort of hides the construction of the gown. Other than that I think she looks beautiful.

  4. M says:

    I think Lizzo will get the last laugh. She’s been making music for years and is just now hitting it big. I’m not sure we’ll even know who Billie is in 5 years.

    • CheleBelle says:

      As they tout her sweep let us keep in mind how often do we here anything from Mr. Cross.

      “ On Sunday night, Eilish, 18, became just the second artist ever to sweep the four general field categories at the Grammy Awards, winning Best New Artist, Song of the Year, Record of the Year, and Album of the Year. Yacht rock icon Cross was the first, and previously only, artist to do so, at the 1981 ceremony, for his eponymous debut album.”

      Maybe I’m alone in this, but I feel like Billie WAS very deserving of those awards. She’s a game changer. Her and Lizzo both are very talented, it sucks that they were up against each other, but I would be happy with either of them winning. Lizzo still walked away with 3 grammies, so I don’t think race had anything to do with this (as was implied in the article). I would have a tough time choosing between the two of them as well.

      • clo says:

        I’m with you, I loce Lizzo, but Billie`s album is groundbreaking, soothing, beautiful and esay to listen.

    • Lali says:

      Maybe they will both be hasbeens 5 years from now or maybe, just maybe, they are both still going to be famous half a decade later. You don’t need to put someone down to bring someone up. Specially when there is space for both of them and they have completely different styles of music.

      Envidia is always bad for you.

    Lizzo looked so beautiful. Versace as a brand has always known how to tailor a gown to it’s client. Amazing work.

    • enike says:

      she looked good, the dress is beautiful, but the corset part is unflattering, too wide apart, didnt support her boobs correctly

  6. LadyLaw says:

    She looks great!

    I also kinda love lil nas x.

  7. Giddy says:

    Lizzo did look great. The rhinestones dripping off her fingernails kill me!

  8. serena says:

    Lizzo went all old Hollywood glam and she looked gorgeous!!!!!

  9. Delorean says:

    Alicia Keys plucks my nerves too! Her performance was boring af. Lizzo was stunning!

  10. Wilma says:

    Love all these looks. Versace did good. Everyone looks their best here.

  11. Michelle says:

    I think Alicia Keys does a bad job of hosting. I don’t feel like she does anything to get the audience going. And to sing during the performance is just wrong. You’re not nominated so sit down and let someone else who is nominated do their thing. Yes, she is a great singer and musician but it wasn’t her night.

  12. LucyD says:

    Alicia Keys is a full on goddess in my eyes. I could not love her more.

  13. Stoogarita says:

    Lizzo 100% took best look of the night. Not many looks manage both classy and sassy but this does.

    Not sure why the article started all “poor Lizzo she got trounced” and then ended “oh wait she won 3 awards” though – she won 3 awards, that’s a winning night!

  14. Naddie says:

    She looked like a goddess.

  15. BANANIE says:

    LOVED Lizzo’s look. The dress is gorgeous and highlights her curves. Someone on Insta showed a side by side photo of her and that iconic white dress/white stole look Britney Spears wore to the Grammys like a decade ago and now I can’t unsee it.

  16. Catting says:

    Lizzo looks AWESOME.

  17. Renee says:

    Legit question…..why the hate for Alicia Keys? Just curious…..

  18. Charfromdarock says:

    Lizzo looked gorgeous. I loved the black gown she performed in as well.

  19. Soupie says:

    Those awards that Lizzo won are just as important and maybe even more so than the ones Billie Eilish won. They are no small potatoes. She should be very proud. And she is a gorgeous woman, just love this look!
