For a lot of celebrities, it takes a considerable bit of time to find your go-to brand. Not for Dua Lipa. The star burst onto the scene with her explosive 2017 hit “New Rules” and, only a year later, began wearing Versace for some of the biggest moments in her career. There are a lot of great moments to choose from the pop star’s allegiance to the Italian house: the vintage 1992 bondage dress she wore to the 2022 Grammys; her high-femme tulle gown at the 2018 Brit Awards; her campy under-the-sea look for the 2019 Met Gala, which celebrate the exhibition “Notes on Camp.” Each look is fit for a global pop star.
Versace and Dua Lipa will making their relationship official-official on May 23, in Cannes during the city’s star-studded film festival. The Italian house and pop-star will be showcasing a see-now, buy-now collection, co-designed by Lipa. The move is a exciting one and part of an ongoing trend in fashion. Pop stars no longer merely wear luxury designs, they help create them. Harry Styles co-designed a must-have collection for Gucci and, earlier this year, Beyoncé collaborated on a couture collection with Balmain. Fashion and music have merged, and understandably so.
In anticipation of what’s sure to be a knockout collection, Vogue looks back at some Lipa’s most memorable Versace looks through the years.
