The yellow silk dress was custom-made for Lizzo, who won three awards at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards, including Best Urban Contemporary Album, Best Pop Solo Performance, and Best Traditional R&B Performance for the song “Jerome”.

The dress is made of luxury silk, with long sleeves and a sky-high slit. The shiny yellow color highlights the American rapper’s beautiful dark complexion.

Before Lizzo, many A-list figures and international celebrities have chosen Cong Tri’s creations, including former U.S. first lady Michelle Obama, singers Camila Cabello, Katy Perry, Rihanna, and Gwen Stefani, and actress Julia Garner.

Born in Danang in 1978, Cong Tri is one of the leading fashion designers in Vietnam. He graduated with an industrial design bachelor degree in HCMC in 2001 and marked his first step into fashion with a sequence of renowned awards such as New Idea of Vietnam Collection Grand Prix 2000, Bay FM Award of Asia Collection in Makuhari, and second runner-up of Asia Fashion Collection in Singapore 2001. 

 

Since 2002, he has been known as a fashion designer for many Vietnamese celebrities under his brand Nguyen Cong Tri, which was the first couture house established in Vietnam. 

Cong Tri has showcased his collections in notable fashion events such as Vietnam International Fashion Week and Tokyo Fashion Week. In 2014, he became the first Vietnamese member of the Asia Couture Federation. SGT
