AceShowbiz - Lizzo has joined the list of celebrities who are unofficially endorsing Beyonce Knowles' Adidas x Ivy Park collection. The rapper just received her own box of the fashion collection from Queen Bey and Adidas' collaboration and she couldn't help showing it off on Instagram.
On Tuesday, January 21, the Detroit-born star posted a video of her rocking an orange jacket from the collection. The jacket was left unzipped, revealing a set of orange lingerie by Rihanna's Savage X Fenty underneath.
Lizzo, who sported footwear in matching color, pulled an orange trunk in the clip. Her creative director Quinn Wilson popped out of the trunk. She's also wearing a piece from the Ivy Park collection, a purple jumpsuit with orange stripes on the two sides. The two later sang and danced together in the video.
Lizzo rocking the Ivy Park jacket comes after the collection received backlash from plus-size consumers for not being size inclusive. Some people took issue with the fact that it was only made available in sizes XS - XL.
Essayist Candice Marie Benbow tweeted, "We can love her and still say Bey is wrong for Ivy Park's size exclusion. You can't celebrate the inclusivity of your other projects, having plus size dancers and background singers, but ignore us again when it comes to this. The exclusion is intentional and I’m tired."
Another similarly complained, "Ivy Park not having plus sizes is so gross considering Adidas did 6.41 billion in revenue last quarter and nothing they're selling is so revolutionary that it would take time to size up. They can afford to and they know how to. They CHOSE not to."
Instead of responding to the complaint, Beyonce has taken to her official Instagram account to thank fans for their enthusiastic response to her collaboration with Adidas. "I want to say a huge thank you to all of the incredible human beings who stood in those long lines in the snow and rain," she posted on Monday.
"All the beautiful people who waited in the waiting room online. All of the friends and family who took the time to film videos and dress up in the unboxing. I am humbled, grateful and proud. Y’all look so good in your IVY PARK. I love you deep. B."
