Dua Lipa Continues to Push Boundaries with Bolder Performance Style

Our June/July cover star Dua Lipa has perfected her manicured, Y2K look since 2019, when she started to wear avant-garde clothing by small designers like Ashley Williams and GCDS.

Her willingness to experiment has made her a head-turning street style star, but she also has a stellar track record for her performance ensembles. Her modus operandi is shockingly bright and over-the-top. For her Future Nostalgia tour this year, the pop star, styled by Lorenzo Posocco, opted for custom-made Balenciaga bodysuits in highlighter hot pink and lime green lace (along with matching gloves!). Other epic tour looks to note? A rhinestone-encrusted bodysuit that leaves little to the imagination by Mugler, an archival Dior by John Galliano monogrammed bra and skirt set, as well as a crystal-slathered bodysuit by Versace.

Of course, curve-hugging pieces are nothing new for Ms. Lipa. At the Brit Awards in 2021, she paid homage to her hometown of London in a saucy pleated Vivienne Westwood skirt boasting the Union Jack, along with a classic white shirt, tie, and a less-classic lace bra top. That same year at the Grammys, Lipa once again went the Versace route and wore a stunning fuchsia gown that came with a completely bedazzled bra top.

While she loves the likes of Donatella and Vivienne, Lipa has a penchant for small-yet-buzzy designers. Case in point: for the iHeartRadio Music Festival last September, the pop princess opted for a purple velvet bodysuit by Area. We can only expect more great looks from Lipa as she continues her international tour this summer.

Here, see some of the best concert looks from Lipa over the past few years.
