Earlier this week, Dua Lipa sent fans into a frenzy with her shrimp grilling skills. Now, while enjoying her seemingly endless European summer holiday, the star has thrown another curveball into the mix – and this time it’s fashion-related.
“Yesterday I found out I’m actually a Gemini rising… someone unpack that for me,” she captioned her latest carousel of holiday snaps. Dua, who recently turned 28, embodies the ambitious and energetic characteristics of a quintessential Leo. However, the traits of a Gemini – playful, charming and creatively disruptive – would also align with her penchant for daring sartorial choices.
The “Dance the Night Away” singer shared photos of herself rocking a bold twist on the viral sheer shoe trend. Her head-to-toe Bottega Veneta outfit featured a sleeveless, sheer ivory midi-dress with intricate panelling, crafted from double-layered cotton and nylon fabrics. Complementing the look, Dua wore a white underwear set and, in place of mesh shoes, a pair of knee-high boots made from the same see-through material as her dress, featuring a central panel that extended into a waist-attached garter.
This year, the internet has become obsessed with transparent shoes, which have also won over Vogue editors. The pop sensation took this subversive trend to the next level by opting for mesh over the knee boots rather than the pumps and slippers we’ve seen so much of this summer. A naked dress paired with naked boots? Of course Dua would.
