Lizzo is living her best life as she rocks a sexy look for the 2019 BET Awards.

The “Truth Hurts” singer, whose real name is Melissa Jefferson, wore a fashion-forward look for the big night. Hollywood Life reports that Lizzo wore a tiny, curve-hugging dress with poofy sleeves. To add on the dramatic look, the singer wore a matching brown hat that sits on one side of her head. For her hair, Lizzo decided to rock it in an updo as she smiled for the camera.

The singer decided to share some snaps from the event with her 1.8 million followers. In one snapshot, she shows the full ensemble to her followers. In her caption, she jokes that she’s the “whole d–n tree,” making light of her textured look.

At the time of writing, the singer received more than 50,000 likes on all three of her posts. The singer also received more than 500 comments from fans who were enamored by her look.

“The only wood that im interested in getting photos of,” one follower wrote.

“You look great!” another follower exclaimed.

This will be Lizzo’s second performance this past week. The Cuz I Love You artist performed at the MTV Video and TV Awards on Monday, June 17. During the performance, the “Juice” singer paid homage to Sister Act 2: Back In The Habit as Lizzo sang with a choir during her performance. The performance caught the attention of Sister Act star Whoopi Goldberg. The Oscar winner discussed her love for Lizzo’s performance on The View on Tuesday, June 19.

“I want to tip a dread to the incredible Lizzo for her tribute to Sister Act 2 at the MTV Awards Monday night,” Goldberg said to the audience.
