Election Day is rapidly approaching, and stars are sharing their early voting experiences with fans on social media to encourage voter turnout. Among them is the always fashionable Lizzo, who cast her presidential election ballot on Wednesday, October 28. Naturally, the singer looked good as hell for the occasion.
The Detroit native went all out for her trip to the ballot box, donning little white shorts, an American flag-themed bustier, and the star of the show: her Swarovski-covered Jimmy Choo x Timberland boots. The drool-worthy kicks are tragically sold out, even though the collab just dropped at the beginning of September. Lady Gaga is also a fan of the glamorous work boots.
But back to Lizzo’s voting outfit. She styled the sparkly footwear with red socks to match her newly dyed hair and the rest of her accessories: an oversized clutch that carried her precious cargo (read: her ballot), a sparkly protective face mask, and layered necklaces.

I VOTED. This is my 3rd time voting in my whole life. When you think about how few and far in between that is it really puts things into perspective! I believe this is the beginning of making voting ACCESSIBLE and FAIR so that this country reflects its people. To all my activists, thank you for your constant organizing & service. Let’s get our vote in so we can get back to the good fight for true liberty and justice for ALL. Have YOU voted yet?
“I VOTED,” she wrote in the caption accompanying her Instagram video. “This is my 3rd time voting in my whole life. When you think about how few and far in between that is it really puts things into perspective!”
She continued, “I believe this is the beginning of making voting ACCESSIBLE and FAIR so that this country reflects its people. To all my activists, thank you for your constant organizing & service. Let’s get our vote in so we can get back to the good fight for true liberty and justice for ALL.”
Lizzo is the prime example of a star who’s been using their influence to get people to the polls. The “Truth Hurts” singer traveled back to her home state of Michigan to campaign for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. She spoke at an event for the democratic candidates, and for the event, she wore a black shirt dress and polka dot booties. She tied the look together with a black-and-white protective face mask with “VOTE” written across the front.
Just two weeks prior, the star attended the 2020 Billboard Awards wearing a whole vote-inspired ensemble. She not only took home the award for “Top Sales Artist,” but her fashion look is arguably the most memorable of all. She wore a custom one-shoulder “VOTE” minidress designed by Christian Siriano. The print is a celebrity favorite, as it’s been worn by Laura Linney, Julianne Moore, and Sarah Hyland.
She even got a manicure to match. Celebrity manicurist Eri Ishizu painted Lizzo’s coffin-shaped nails jet-black and painted the word “VOTE” in white, in all caps on the nail on her ring finger.
The Billboards voting-inspired fashion and beauty moment was epic, but the words she used during her acceptance speech inspired us the most.
“I wonder, would I be standing here right now if it weren’t for the big Black women who refused to have their voices be suppressed?” she said on-stage. “I just want to say right now that if you’re at home watching this and you are thinking about changing yourself to feel worthy, this is your sign to remain true to who you are.”
She continued, “Let me tell y’all something. When people try to suppress something, it’s normally because that thing holds power. They’re afraid of your power. There’s power in who you are. There’s power in your voice.”
