We’ve seen plenty of bold, flashy swimsuits so far this season, from Kim Kardashian’s risky maillot to Bella Hadid’s burning-hot cutout one-piece, but no one owns the shine like Lizzo. “I love you. You are beautiful. You can do anything. (Repeat),” she wrote on Instagram underneath a series of shots of herself posing in this intricate lamé design on the beach in New Zealand. Lizzo’s body positive caption was just the icing on the cake that was this photo shoot, which she hosted with friends and stylist Marko Monroe. It was a party, and Lizzo’s followers were all invited, as she continued to dance for the camera in a second post to show off her well-crafted beach ensemble from every angle.
Lizzo’s metallic swimsuit came equipped with a gold ring halter style top, invisible straps, and a center sash. She played up the shimmer even more with gold-rimmed circle sunglasses and a chain-link necklace. It takes a lot of confidence for anyone to flaunt her bikini body for over 7M social followers, but Lizzo doing so in a barely there suit like this alongside an empowering caption is the reason why we love her. You’re as beautiful as you feel, and clearly Lizzo feels best in lamé. Read ahead if you feel the same way about the material and want to add something to your swim drawer that evokes just as much glamour.
