Lizzo made a surprisingly early arrival at the 2020 Grammys last night, turning heads in a glamorous white-on-white ensemble. Decked out in a strapless white Versace gown, Lorraine Schwartz jewels, and a fluffy stole, the singer exuded an elegant Old Hollywood charm—exactly what her stylist, Marko Monroe, was going for.
Monroe told WWD‘s Booth Moore that the look was inspired by the likes of Marlene Dietrich, Madonna, and Whitney Houston.

Lizzo also unintentionally paid tribute to pop princess Britney Spears, who wore a similar look to the Grammys 20 years ago. Spears showed up to the 2000 ceremony in a white Randolph Duke dress with an Oscar de la Renta stole; her single “…Baby One More Time” was nominated for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.
This is the first time Lizzo has been nominated at the Grammys, where she picked up eight nods for her album Cuz I Love You and songs like “Truth Hurts.” She went home with the awards for Best Traditional R&B Performance, Best Urban Contemporary Album, and Best Pop Solo Performance.
