Lizzo, the multi-talented rapper-singer-flautist, showcased an eye-catching Halloween costume at the party she hosted over the weekend. Channeling the iconic character Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, Lizzo turned heads with a plunging black velvet gown and a custom bustier that flaunted maximum cleavage. The outfit was co-designed by Iggy Soliven and Matthew Reisman. Lizzo's vampy look was completed with a black beehive wig styled by JStayReady and striking makeup by Alexx Mayo. Even her black manicure, done by nail artist Eri Ishizu, adhered to the spooky theme.
Despite the festive celebrations, Lizzo's Halloween festivities occurred amidst an ongoing lawsuit. The artist's lawyers recently filed a motion to dismiss a sexual harassment lawsuit brought forth by three fired backup dancers. Lizzo's attorney, Marty Singer, claims the plaintiffs are seeking media attention and a quick payday with minimal effort. The filing included sworn statements from 18 members of Lizzo's touring company, disputing the facts presented by the plaintiffs.
In the comments section of Lizzo's Instagram slideshow showcasing her Halloween look, fans raised concerns about the allegations made by her ex-employees. Lizzo has previously stated that it was not her intention to make anyone feel uncomfortable and that she would never criticize or terminate an employee based on their weight. However, she did not address allegations of being arrogant, self-centered, and unkind made by filmmaker Sophia Nahli Allison, who had quit directing Lizzo's HBO Max documentary due to treatment she received.
Despite the ongoing controversy, Lizzo's Halloween party appeared to be a hit, with the artist sharing a selfie at the head of her dining table surrounded by friends and acquaintances. The talented musician, who has a massive social media following of 45.9 million, know how to make a statement both on and off the stage.
