After giving us a swath of blokecore looks and leather coats, Dua Lipa is finally showing us how she does formalwear. Last night, she attended a star-studded Barbie screening alongside Margot Robbie and Greta Gerwig in a look less Mermaid Barbie and more “Houdini.”
The pop star wore a scant, sheer maxi dress with a beaded fringe in a chevron pattern adding some movement. The dress was complete with a keyhole held together by a gold clasp. Lipa layered a pair of high-waisted black briefs underneath her diaphanous dress and, in place of a bra, utilized an enormous coat to cover her chest.
Lipa opted for a luxe, floor-length black fur coat from Entire Studios, proving that two attention-grabbing pieces could share the spotlight. On the accessories front, she wore a pair of pointy-toe black knee-high boots and carried a shiny black patent leather clutch. The Albanian superstar opted for a single earring; whether she lost the other or is pioneering a new trend for 2024, we’re intrigued.
We’re still waiting to see how Dua Lipa defines her style in her new album cycle, but so far she’s proven that she loves an opulent fur. In that same vein, she is keeping a tight focus on neutrals with interesting textures. See: the Dion Lee fishnet bodysuit she wore in her “Houdini” music video. We’re excited to see what else she has in store for the rest of her highly anticipated album.
