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.
