It's Lizzo's time to shine. The singer-songwriter (and rapper!) is definitely having her moment and thriving in the spotlight. First, she's blessed us with two swinging hits Juice and Tempo. And then she went to top the Billboard Hot 100 with Truth Hurts — joining the ranks of other iconic black female musicians like Beyoncé, Rihanna and Cardi B. But aside from her music, there's also something to be said about her style. Ahead, the reasons why Lizzo is our new style icon.
She embraces her curves
She doesn't shy away from drama
She's all about celebrating femininity

Clothing rental services had a favourable start. When this brave, new idea was introduced everyone seemed to be on board. It's a way for fashionistas to experiment with different looks without having to buy a new designer piece every season. Plus, it's also a promising alternative to fast fashion.
But recently, one of the biggest names in the industry just encountered a speed bump — and it's a big one. Rent The Runway, the company who pioneered the clothing rental business model and landed on the CNBC Disruptor 50 list this year, is now encountering some logistical problems.
Imagine reserving a dress for a special occasion, only to find out on short notice that the particular item you rented won't arrive in time for the event. This is what happened to several subscribers of Rent The Runway. And for the past few weeks, the company's social media accounts were swarmed with complaints and nasty feedback.
The reason for this hiccup is quite complicated and isn't really clear. In a statement, the company said it's "due to unforeseen issues associated with a significant transformation" that is expected be fixed by 15 October. Translation? They were overwhelmed with orders and had to do a software upgrade. Now, this is a double-edged sword. On one hand, it's a sign that this venture is profitable, but it's a long way to go till every kink is smoothened out.
To compensate, subscribers who weren't able to receive their orders had a full refund and a USD200 compensation fee, as reported by Business of Fashion. Thankfully, in our region, this incident hasn't happened yet with local clothing rental shops.
Despite what's happening with Rent The Runway, we're pretty positive that the clothing rental industry will bounce back and thrive once again. After all, it's obvious that the demand is there and it's high.
