No new season look is too wild for Dua Lipa
‘Adjustment control! Yes, Dua Lipa is still ahead of the trendline. While Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner are busy on the Parisian catwalks, Lipa and her stylist Lorenzo Posocco are taking time to vogue Runway, filming their favorite looks from the new season and packing them first.
Doing your fashion homework pays off. For Lipa’s appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the popstar had a juicy selection of Fall/Winter 2022 looks to choose from. Naturally, Posocco’s first stop was Diesel, where Glenn Martens is breaking the rules when it comes to the brand’s sexy denim aesthetic. While it’s surely only a matter of time before we see the “Levitating” singer rock one of those cheek-grazing belted skirts, she opted for a pair of low-riders and a matching faded blue denim bralette. for his television studio entrance photo. With choppy bangs and spunky silver chains, it gave off Y2K Christina Aguilera vibes, but looked more high than dirty.
From throwback denim to club-kid tailoring, Dua greeted Jimmy wearing a tiny green and yellow houndstooth Area twinset adorned with crystals and feathers. But no amount of rhinestones could detract from her huge, plush ankle boots that played into the still-bubbling alpine aesthetic thanks to Ms. Prada’s Miu Miu. the sesame street the color scheme could have been punchier than most Dua nostalgia for the future the tour looks like, but it spelled pop diva, which is exactly what the memoir called for.
Choosing Area, a favorite New York underground nightclub, rather than telling Versace, who she models for, is another low-key power play by Lipa. Area is all about gritty, quirky glamour, not traditional style, something Dua strives to create for her own wardrobe. This mix of luxurious, emerging and offbeat talent works well for the performer who continues to surprise us – surely the best kind of fashion plate to follow.
