Lizzo Plays the Flute, Takes Gilded Glam to a New Level on 2022 Met Gala Red Carpet

The 'About Damn Time' singer recently celebrated her 34th birthday with her mysterious new beau.

First Coachella, and now the Met Gala -- Lizzo is taking this year's hottest events by storm! The 34-year-old singer arrived at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday as only she can, in an over-the-top glam look we can't get enough of.

This year's Met Gala accompanies the second part of the Costume Institute's exhibition, "In America: An Anthology of Fashion," with a concept paying homage to the United States' Gilded Age, an era of immense economic growth and major industrialization, as well as massive income inequality, political upheaval, and post-Civil War racism.

Dressed in a regal black Thom Browne dress complete with a gold cape jacket, the "About Damn Time" singer kept true to this year's controversial theme of "Gilded Glamour and White Tie."  She also treated onlookers to a performance with her flute.

Lizzo's corset dress in black silk moiré with a dropped skirt detail and her oversized chesterfield coat in black duchess satin -- which was embroidered with gold roses and foliage bullion and featured silk satin stitch embroidery -- consisted of 13 different materials and took 22,000 hours of needlework.

Monday's gala is the singer's second time walking the Met red carpet; she made her debut in 2019 as a guest of Marc Jacobs. The designer created a one-of-a-kind look for the singer for that year's "Camp" theme, an empire-waist gown with a thigh-high slit and a grand feathered cape in different shades of pink, for that much-needed drama.

Lizzo recently surprised fans by joining Harry Styles onstage during Weekend 2 at Coachella in Indio, California. The duo strutted around in some feathery bright outfits and offered a show-stopping rendition of Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive" and One Direction's "What Makes You Beautiful" for the frenzied crowd.

Lizzo's surprise appearance came a week after she dropped her summer banger, "About Damn Time," and nearly a week after she pulled double duty as host and musical guest on Saturday Night Live.
