Hear me out, Lizzo is the definition of a Taurus. She’s down-to-earth, dependable and all about self care.
The self-proclaimed Bop Star is a Taurus Sun, Virgo Moon — just like me, and I can attest to the downsides of being a double earth sign. When you mix the meticulous nature of the bull with perfectionist Virgo, you can easily veer into workaholic territory. Enter: creature comforts. Taureans know when to treat themselves, and in my case, it’s usually with a face mask and some sort of indulgent drink. In Lizzo’s case…Well, as they say on TikTok, we’re in different tax brackets, and her fashion is proof. But let’s be honest, she’s earned it. Between her award-winning records and influence on the world of inclusive fashion, Lizzo’s impact can’t be understated.
And so, in honour of her 35th birthday, we’re taking a look back at some of her most decadent fashion moments.

For the 2023 Grammys, Lizzo wore a larger-than-life cloak the colour of orange tropical punch that was decked out in 3D rosettes.

Who can forget when Lizzo appeared on the 2019 American Music Awards red carpet with a clutch small enough to carry Thumbelina? Sharing photos of the custom Valentino ensemble to Instagram, she wrote, “Bag big enough for my f***s to give.” We know a fixed sign when we see one.

At the 2020 Grammys, Lizzo paid homage to Cher (a fellow Taurus) and Diana Ross in a Versace gown with hand-embroidered Swarovski crystals. The “Truth Hurts” singer paired the dress (which reportedly took two months to make) with jewels by Lorraine Schwartz, taking the Taurean love of luxury to a whole new level.

For the 2021 Grammys, Lizzo looked good as hell in her sign’s lucky colour green. And as if the minty ruched strapless Balmain dress wasn’t sparkly enough, she paired the look with jewels from Bulgari.
Now we’ve seen it all
Lizzo went viral last October when she stepped out in a sheer, shimmery, floor-length dress by Matthew Reisman for Cardi B’s birthday. After being pictured barefoot, she assured fans on Instagram that she did wear shoes — Jimmy Choos, for the record. And if this outfit doesn’t perfectly encapsulate her sign’s love of comfort and quality, I don’t know what does.
In a galaxy far, far away
Like any Taurean, Lizzo knows when it’s time to go hard and when it’s time to go home. And last Halloween, she definitely went hard. The singer wore not one but *three* costumes, most memorable of which being her transformation into Grogu from The Mandalorian.
Let them eat cake
Finally, Lizzo took to Instagram earlier today to give us all a taste of what’s to come. For her birthday photoshoot, the singer stepped inside a white and pink “cake” wearing a hot pink wig, long pink opera gloves, a mesh bodysuit and lots of jewellery. Is there anything more Taurus than dessert served with a side of glamour? We think not.
