In honor of celebrating a career milestone, Author Aurielle Marie, writer of Gumbo Ya Ya, Georgia Author of the Year and Out 100 honoree, asked Lizzo on TikTok if they could borrow a dress of hers for their Out100 event.
A major fan of Lizzo’s, Marie made a video pleading with the “Rumors” artist to borrow the dress she wore to the 2022 Emmys.
“I can’t find anything, anywhere, that is big bitch and red carpet ready. And I need to show out,” they explained in the video. “I know you know how it feels to be the biggest bitch in a room and all of the scrutiny and hyper-visibility that comes along with that because I’ve watched you talk about it.”
Marie was transparent in sharing that not having a gown to wear would likely make her stay home.
“I can’t find anything, anywhere, that is big bitch and red carpet ready. And I need to show out,” Marie said. “I know you a girl for the girls, and I’m a girl and a girl, and I just need to know. I gotta ask. Can I please, please, please wear your dress from the 2022 Emmys?”
Weeks went by without a response from Lizzo or the singer’s team, but on Tuesday, the author posted a video saying Lizzo made her day.
Running down the stairs, Marie shouted, “Shut up,” posing in the gown before crying. “Not me in Lizzo’s dress!” Marie said.
The dress Marie received was not Lizzo’s 2022 Emmy dress, but they received a stunning cranberry-colored ruffled gown Lizzo wore to the American Music Awards in 2019.
“I might’ve gotten a few tears on your dress Lizzo, my bad babe. Words don’t suffice and thank you isn’t enough. But THANK YOU! I’m speechless,” Marie captioned the video. “Ya’ll! A bitch is certified LIZZO-SIZED! And look at this gown! Out Magazine, here I come!.”
Lizzo reposted the heartfelt video of Marie on Twitter and explained that she sent her AMA dress because her Emmy’s dress was ripped and completely ruined.
“It’s easy to be kind, and my absolute pleasure,” Lizzo tweeted. “@YesAurielle, you look beautiful!”
