HCM CITY — Following other world-famous celebrities, American singer-songwriter and rapper Lizzo is the newest icon to wear an outfit created by Vietnamese designer Nguyễn Công Trí.
In a stunning yellow-coloured silk dress, Lizzo, who recently won three Grammys at the 62nd Grammy Awards, including Best Urban Contemporary Album, Best Pop Solo Performance, and Best Traditional R&B Performance, has appeared on the digital cover of the Glamour Mexico – March issue.
The famous Mexican photographer David Franco is the one who shot the photos of the singer, whose hit Truth Hurts last year topped the Billboard Hot 100 for seven weeks – the longest reign ever for a rap song by a female artist.

According to the HCM-City based designer, who is the only Vietnamese member of the Asian Couture Federation, the simple yet elegant shirt dress using luxury silk has been custom-made for the singer. He said that the dress is not among any of his collections, as this one was created according to the request of the singer’s stylist.
Before Lizzo, Trí’s creations have been worn by other A-list figures such as former US First Lady Michelle Obama, singers Beyoncé, Rihanna, and Katy Perry, Victoria’s Secret model Josephine Skriver, American actresses Kate Bosworth, and Gabrielle Union. —VNS
