Olivia Rodrigo He was wrapped in red at Z100’s Jingle Ball on Friday, December 8th.
The 20-year-old singer wore a classic Versace mini dress for her collection at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The festive number, part of Gianni Versace’s 1996 couture collection, features a sheer top with red embellishments. The straps also have a small metal V letter decorated with crystals.
Rodrigo brought her grunge sensibilities with black thigh-high stockings and knee-high black combat boots. She opted for natural glam with winged eyeliner, rosy cheeks and her hair in loose waves. She kept the jewelry minimal, choosing only to wear several silver rings with her black manicure.
The shoes appear to be the same ones she wore earlier this month to iHeartRadio’s Los Angeles Jingle Ball event. The “Can’t Catch Me Now” singer paired the shoes with black tights and a silver dress for a different look on Dec. 2.
Ahead of her Jingle Ball set in New York City, Rodrigo spoke to the Z100 host Elvis Duran About recently moving to Manhattan.
“I love walking around, and the food is the best ever. A lot of my friends live here, so it’s really amazing,” the California native said.
But she refused to blow up her favorite pizza place. “I don’t want to give this up,” she said. “I can’t handle it. I have to keep my little secret. I’m the gatekeeper, sorry.”
As a new New Yorker, Rodrigo is excited to spend Christmas in the Big Apple. “I’m going to spend it in New York,” she told Duran of her vacation plans. “I hope it snows, fingers crossed!”
“Stop it! We don’t want snow,” Duran joked.
“No, I want it so bad,” Rodrigo replied. “I’m an L.A. girl! I need some ice. …I’m going to do this and watch Home Alone Lost in New York over and over again.”
The rest will be necessary since Rodrigo has big plans for 2024. First, she will attend the Grammy Awards on February 4 where she has six nominations. Her single “Vampire” was nominated for Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Pop Solo Performance, while her album Guts took home the prizes for Best Pop Vocal Album and the coveted Album of the Year. “Ballad of a Homeschooled Girl” also received a nod for Best Rock Song.
And just a few weeks later, she will launch the Guts Tour in Palm Springs, California. The singer will return to Madison Square Garden in April for four sold-out shows before taking her show to Europe for a few months. It will return to the United States in the summer, concluding the tour in August with a series of shows at the Kia Forum in Los Angeles.
