Lizzo made a sartorial statement in a woodgrain-inspired number at the 2019 BET Awards on Sunday night.

The Juice hitmaker posed up a storm as she made her entrance at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, with her quirky outfit from House of Holland turning heads.

Lizzo, who also performed her hit song Truth Hurts during the ceremony, accessorised her look with matching hat and handpainted shoes, as well as a custom manicure by Eri Ishizu.

Taking to Instagram, the 31-year-old posted several snaps of her ensemble, and added the captions, “No I’m not a branch at all look baby I’m the whole damn tree! CUSTOM WOODGRAIN LEWK FOR THE @BETAWARDS,” and “Ooop! Did I give you a woody?”

A number of Lizzo’s celebrity pals were quick to praise her outfit, with actress Anna Faris writing, “Yeah!!” and Queer Eye star Jonathan Van Ness commenting, “Slay us to death queen dayum (sic),” alongside a string of heart eye emojis.

Other stars to pull out all of the stops for the 2019 BET Awards included Rihanna, who sported a full black leather outfit when presenting Mary J. Blige with the Lifetime Achievement Award, and Ciara, who wore a tangerine Jean Paul Gaultier dress with dramatic sleeves. The Goodies star completed her look with Stuart Weitzman shoes and jewellery from Anita Ko.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta personality Eva Marcille showed off her growing baby bump in a flowing pink gown from Michael Costello, Karrueche Tran wowed in a bright yellow suit as she walked the blue carpet with American football player Victor Cruz, and Black-ish star Yara Shahidi opted for a striking Prabal Gurung look complete with silver sequin skirt.

La La Anthony rocked a gold minidress, Migos trio Quavo, Takeoff, and Offset looked dapper in pastel suits with harnesses, and Blac Chyna went for a bombshell vibe in a red dress and platinum blonde wig, while host Regina Hall looked stunning in a black dress with voluminous sleeves.

Blac Chyna stirs controversy by promoting skin lightening cream

Model and TV personality Blac Chyna is facing criticism after choosing to endorse a skin lightening cream.

Rob Kardashian’s 30-year-old ex is lending her star power to skin bleaching product Whitenicious X Blac Chyna Diamond Illuminating & Lightening Cream to help bosses make a killing in the market place.

According to TMZ, the serum is sold in a Swarovski crystal-studded jar and costs a whopping $250 (£200). The item is being marketing towards both men and women and is used to help with hyper-pigmentation and dark spot corrections.

Skin bleaching creams have gained popularity throughout the world, especially in South Asia and West Africa, with many critics finding fault with the product because it promotes a western standard of beauty.

Chyna took to Instagram on Monday to share an image of herself showing off what appears to be lighter skin. The post was met with a flood of responses from enraged followers, who found her latest venture insulting.

“White Chyna, God is it really that bad to be black?” asked one user, while another wrote “No offense but lightning (sic) of your skin does not look good on you. You looked 10 times prettier when you had your beautiful natural skin color”.

That wasn’t the only recent change to her looks – on Sunday (18Nov18), Chyna shared an image of her latest tattoo, a red ink illustration of 1988, the year she was born, on Instagram.

The star has also been busy with her cosmetics brand, which she launched last year (17). The brand offers highly pigmented lipsticks, enchanting eyelashes, and care items for various skin types.

Kim Kardashian will never wear one particular fragrance again because it evokes too many memories.

The reality TV personality has made a splash in the beauty world of late, launching six perfumes, including the new Kimoji Heart scents, under her KKW Beauty company.

While Kim now has a variety of her own fragrances to choose from each day, she has revealed that she still has a strong emotional attachment to Thierry Mugler’s Angel because her father Robert Kardashian, who died of cancer in 2003, used to buy it for her.

“My dad’s thing was that he always bought me fragrance, everywhere he went,” she told Refinery 29. “When he’d travel, he’d come back with fragrance and I collected them in high school. So, it really does evoke a memory.”

Angel, which comes packaged in a blue glass flacon, has base notes of vanilla, chocolate, caramel and patchouli, a heart of fruit and honey as well as a dash of bergamot.

And even though the perfume was Kim’s signature for a long time, she had to retire the scent after her dad bought it for some of his love interests following his divorce from Kim’s mother Kris Jenner.

“With Angel, he started to buy it for all of his girlfriends, too, and they would be really annoying, so I wouldn’t like it anymore. There were maybe two or three (girlfriends). I got so sick of it because it turned into all their fragrances instead of my fragrance. I was like, O.K. I’m done. I can’t wear that anymore,” the 37-year-old shared.

Kim added that she tends to wear her Crystal Gardenia scent on a daily basis, while her husband Kanye West likes to spritz on Yves Saint Laurent’s L’Homme cologne. She has just unveiled the Kimoji Hearts line, which includes a sweet floral named BFF, fruity scent Ride or Die as well as a playful citrus called Bae, and revealed on social media on Thursday that she had sent Bae to some of her “haters” including Taylor Swift, Blac Chyna, Pink, Bette Midler and Chloe Grace Moretz.
