If we haven't said it before, we'll say it now: Lizzo is a whole mood and we want to be her when we grow up.

The popstar and self love hero stole the show at Rihanna's Savage x Fenty Vol. 2 Fashion Show, which premiered on Amazon Prime over the weekend and we haven't been able to stop thinking about it since. 

Just when you thought I couldn’t love myself any more. TONIGHT. @savagexfenty. Lizzo

Wearing a gorgeous lacy blue lingerie set designed by Riri and the Savage team, Lizzo oozed confidence as she performed a solo dance set in the star-studded fashion show. Naturally, fans went crazy for it with many taking to social media to gush over the 32-year-old star and naming her as a highlight of the incredible stage soiree.

"Watching @Lizzo on tv at the Savage x Fenty Fashion Show was everything I’ve ever dreamed of," one fan tweeted. Meanwhile another wrote: "Learning Lizzo’s part in Savage X Fenty vol 2".

Prior to the release, Lizzo teased fans on Instagram short clip of herself kissing her reflection in the mirror whilst sporting the royal blue cut-out bra with matching bottoms and fingerless gloves. "Just when you thought I couldn't love myself anymore," she in the caption.

The post received almost five million likes and thousands of comments, including some by celebrity fans like Little Mix's Jade Thirlwall who responded with six lovestruck emojis and Demi Moore, who also starred in the fashion show alongside a host of other famous faces like Bella Hadid, Cara Delevingne and Willow Smith.

Walking the runway during the "mood" sequel of the fashion show (of course!), Lizzo broke out into a sexy dance soundtracked by D'Angelo's "Brown Sugar". She later shared another Instagram clip of her friends reacting to her performance which once again cemented her appearance as the highlight of the show. In fact, we'd be lying if we said we hadn't watched it at least three times...
