Dua Lipa, the Grammy-winning songstress, known for her bold fashion choices, once again turned heads at the star-studded Barbie premiere in Los Angeles. The “Don’t Start Now” singer made a sparkling statement, setting pulses racing in a sheer chainmail dress that shimmered under the Californian sun.
The 27-year-old British pop star, who recently channeled the Barbiecore aesthetic during her Greek vacation, is set to shine in Greta Gerwig’s much-awaited film as Mermaid Barbie. Alongside other cast members, Dua took center stage at the Shrine Auditorium, joining the glamorous Margot Robbie, who paid homage to the iconic 1960 Mattel doll with a vintage strapless trumpet gown.
Dua’s choice of attire for the event was a daring yet stunning sleeveless, sheer chainmail dress. The dress’s transparency showcased Dua’s bold choice to pair it with only a set of white underwear, making a statement that was both risqué and captivating. Adding to the glamour, the pop star opted for shiny silver closed-toed heels, partially hidden by the dress’s long hem.
The gown featured a plunging scooped neckline and a low back, which she showcased while striking a pose for the cameras. The finishing touch to Dua’s outfit was her choice of dazzling silver accessories. These included a pair of dangling earrings, a sparkling rhinestone necklace, and silver rings adorning each hand, perfectly matching her ensemble’s silver theme.
Her sleek, dark locks, parted in the middle, effortlessly cascaded past her shoulders, enhancing her overall glamour. Dua’s makeup, perfectly crafted for the event, featured a lash-enhancing layer of mascara, warm blush, and contour to accentuate her cheekbones. She completed her look with a darker, nude-colored matte tint on her lips.
As she sashayed down the pink carpet under the summer sun, she showcased her striking poses, later posing in front of a pastel pink convertible for some memorable snaps. Despite some critics questioning the appropriateness of the risqué ensemble for the pink carpet event, a vast majority of her fans lauded her bold and stunning look. “She NEVER fails a red carpet,” tweeted one supporter, while another added: “Dua is someone we can always count on to serve a red carpet look.”
In addition to her special cameo as Mermaid Barbie in the upcoming fantasy comedy, set to hit theaters on July 21, Dua also contributed to the film’s soundtrack. Her catchy track, Dance The Night, is the lead single on the soundtrack and was officially released on May 25.
Dua Lipa’s appearance at the Barbie premiere was not just a fashion statement, but a testament to her bold and unique style that continues to inspire and captivate her fans worldwide. As we eagerly await the release of the Barbie movie, one thing is certain – Dua Lipa knows how to make a statement, both on and off the red carpet.
