- An author took to TikTok to ask Lizzo to borrow a dress for an event she had in New York City.
- Sure enough, she says Lizzo delivered and sent a dress she wore at the 2019 AMAs just in time for her flight.
- “Whenever you hear me say ‘the dress’ from now on, know that I’m talking about Lizzo’s dress and not my wedding dress,” Aurielle Marie said.
Author Aurielle Marie was recently selected as one of Out Magazine’s Out 100 — the magazine’s “prestigious compilation of the year’s most impactful and influential LGBTQ+ people” — but had nothing to wear to the New York City event.
So, she took to TikTok to find a dress. But she didn’t want just any dress. Marie actually was hoping to wear Lizzo’s 2022 Emmy dress to the ceremony.
“This video is for Lizzo,” Marie said in an October 27 post. Marie told the superstar that this is “hands down the biggest accolade in my career,” adding that she wants “nothing more” than to dazzle at the event in New York.
“There’s just one little problem,” Marie continued. “Bitch, I can’t find anything to wear!” She wanted a look that was “big bitch and red carpet ready.”
“I know you know how it feels to be the biggest bitch in the room and all the scrutiny and hyper-visibility that comes with that,” Marie continued, directly addressing Lizzo.
“I just need to know, I gotta ask, can I please, please, please, please, please wear your dress from the 2022 Emmys? Please, bitch, it’s my favorite!” Marie said.
Marie said in her video that she made the TikTok because anything can happen.
“I figured the worst thing you could say was no. Please don’t though,” Marie said.
Sure enough, Marie says Lizzo pulled through, sending her a dress — not the 2022 Emmy’s dress, but one Lizzo wore at the 2019 AMAs — via FedEx, which Marie said arrived 20 minutes before she had to leave for her scheduled flight to New York.
In a video posted Tuesday, Marie happily runs to her front door to retrieve the massive package before opening it up and trying on the Fuschia tulle gown. Marie also posted footage from a front door security camera of a FedEx delivery person dropping off the package.
In a third video posted Tuesday, Marie said Lizzo sent a seamstress to her New York hotel to do a fitting of the dress before her event.
“Whenever you hear me say ‘the dress’ from now on, know that I’m talking about Lizzo’s dress and not my wedding dress,” Marie said.
Lizzo couldn’t immediately be reached for comment about the dress donation.
