NEW YORK – Houston-based singing star Lizzo wore a flowing, corseted gown of black and gold for her turn on the red carpet at the Met Gala in New York Monday night. The look was stunning, smart and oh-so-her (we’re lookin’ at you gold flute!)

Lizzo did H-Town proud last night. She looked wonderful. Take a look at her triumphant arrival at the annual gala:
