John-Paul Ricchio's Exclusive Breakdown of Lizzo's Look at the 2022 VMAs

The queen of queens Lizzo has brought back the major Eleganza to the MTV video music awards... the glamour has arrived and I am gasping for air.

There's always one look that I fall in love with at the VMAs- somebody who is bold, doesn't give a shit and absolutely rocks the runway. I am so pleased to be able to give you a fabulous breakdown of the one and only Lizzo as she embarked on the red carpet tonight in this luscious fluid and categorically glamorous ensemble to match her fabulous skin, hair and make up. I had the chance to speak exclusively to Charlotte Tilbury's team to find out exactly what she used and I'm so happy to share this wonderful amount of details with all of Canada and with all of you wonderful readers.

She picked the legendary fashion designer Jean-Paul Gaultier's Spring Summer 2022 couture, a gown accessorized with matching black lipstick, a gold lip ring, layers of gold hoop earrings and a slicked back hair style with fabulous gloves that were dripping with glamour. Lizzo's mesmerizing look was brought to life by celebrity makeup artist Alexx Mayo, using a range of Charlotte Tilbury beauty icons including Glow Toner, Magic Cream, Beautiful Skin Foundation and the NEW Beautiful Skin Radiant Concealer which launched on Thursday.

Alexx Mayo told me tonight:

"We wanted to go with the ultimate vamp look. I love using product in unconventional ways like the duo super blue eye liner as a lipstick. The overall vibe of the look was a sultry regal vixen."

The MTV video music awards for years have been a focal point of creating style, fashion, glamour and luxe that we all turn to for our own joy. I remember looking back at when Madonna opened the first ever VMAs, the iconic Britney Spears' I'm a Slave 4 U performance, and Janet Jackson's iconic tribute to her belated brother Michael Jackson. It has been something that always inspires me and will continue to inspire me. This look tonight from Lizzo is hands-down badass just like her.

I just hope that Courtney Love wasn't there throwing her compacts at Lizzo while she was being interviewed like she did Madonna not so many years ago lol.

You too can get these radiant concealers and create this look yourself at home to create your own eleganza and your own red carpet look.

You can find Charlotte Tilbury here, at Holt Renfrew, and at Sephora. And in case you missed it, watch Lizzo accept her VMA right here in couture by Olivier Rousteing, the Creative Director at Balmain. Kisses, JP xo
