Indian fashion designer Gaurav Gupta has been dominating the wardrobes of numerous celebrities, both nationally and globally, for the longest time. What made his name even more renowned was when American rapper Megan Thee Stallion wore a blue dress by him at the 2022 Oscars, thus breaking an awe-inspiring record of being the first A-lister to wear an Indian designer to the awards. Ever since he made his debut at Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week at the beginning of this year, his fame and recognition has quadrupled. After receiving a great response at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival, Lizzo recently donned a silver Gaurav Gupta outfit at The Governors Ball in New York.

Lizzo, who headlined the lineup on day one of the music festival, looked stunning in a silver outfit from the designer that was a perfect amalgamation of both their style sensibilities. She wore a full-sleeve striped bodysuit with a structured neckline and completed the look with a slinky wrap skirt that left one of her legs completely exposed. Her hair, dyed in a perfect bubblegum pink shade, was left open while she wore shiny lace-up boots. The overall look showcased Lizzo’s bold and unafraid attitude towards her fashion choices and body.

Gaurav Gupta, the designer of the outfit, has an impressive resume when it comes to designing clothes for women of all shapes and sizes. Inclusivity has always been an essential part of his brand, as the designer stated in an interview with Femina before showcasing his first international runway collection, Shunya, at PFW. For Gaurav, inclusivity and body positivity have always been a part of his design ethos, a point that he actively reinforced in 2020 when he cast Nitya Arora and models from the LGBTQIA+ community to showcase his couture collection, Name is Love. Even before inclusivity became a global buzzword, he believed it was necessary to cast plus-size model Anna Schlaifer and women who break
societal norms to showcase his surreal clothes.

Despite the stunning clothing designs, the celebrity wearing them and the world stage events, seeing Lizzo, a carefree plus-size woman of colour wearing Indian designer clothing, is more than just a symbol of good optics. It is an inspiration for women worldwide to be comfortable and confident in their skin and fashion choices. Lizzo’s outfit, along with her dreamy voice, made her look like an absolute star on stage.

In conclusion, Gaurav Gupta’s inclusivity has been highly appreciated by people worldwide. The designer strongly believes in showcasing clothes that empower women regardless of their size, shape, or skin colour. Lizzo’s latest performance at The Governors Ball while wearing Gaurav’s outfit has set an example for women to embrace their bodies and be unafraid to experiment with their fashion choices. Additionally, celebrities’ recognition of Indian designers has brought more attention to Indian fashion labels globally.
