Lizzo arrived at The Today Show Tuesday in the perfect comfy pink look to talk about her big week of releases and appearances. The superstar wore a glossy Barbie pink coat with a pink fur collar and cuffs, but the real star of the look was her new shapewear line Yitty.
This week, Lizzo is bringing several major projects to life. Her size-inclusive shapewear Yitty is available now. In her Today interview, Lizzo shared her excitement about the project that is five years in the making as she modeled the lines Mesh Me Bodysuit and Major Label High Waist Leggings. “I grew up wearing [shapewear], and it wasn’t a great experience. I don’t think a 12 or 13-year-old girl should be trying to change her body. I should be going to school and having fun, and so when I got older I was like I want to liberate people. I want to liberate people from being uncomfortable and ashamed of their bodies and what they choose to wear. I want clothing that makes people feel as good as my music makes people feel.”
Named “Yitty” after a nickname given to her by her aunt, Lizzo is clearly loving her new line, and we can’t deny it’s the perfect compliment for a statement jacket and casually glamorous makeup look. But we all knew Lizzo was a style icon, right?
Lizzo will also double as debut host and musical guest appearance (her second on the show) on Saturday Night Live on April 16. We’re crossing our fingers that her new song “About Damn Time” will be on the setlist for her appearance since it comes out just days before on April 14.
