If there’s one thing Dua Lipa knows, it’s how to keep her fans occupied. Since releasing her sophomore album Future Nostalgia to critical acclaim and chart-topping sales last March, Lipa has barely stopped for breath, with a remix album, a record-breaking live-streamed concert, and more virtual red carpet looks than you can shake a stick at. (Notably, the Cher-inspired Versace number she wore to collect Best Pop Vocal Album at this year’s Grammys back in March.)
You might have thought, then, that Lipa would be taking some well-earned downtime. Not so. Today, the pop star released the video for Future Nostalgia’s sixth single, the disco-tastic, “My Woman”-sampling, “Love Again”—and it didn’t disappoint. In keeping with her chameleonic approach to fashion, Lipa took a trip to the rodeo this time with a barnstorming ode to classic cowgirl style, albeit with the signature glitzy twist we’ve come to expect of her work with stylist Lorenzo Posocco.
Yes, there were Stetsons and leather galore, but Lipa updated the look with a carousel of looks that included a zebra print bra with a black suede waistcoat, a Miu Miu Western jacket cut from black and red leather, and a pair of baggy denim cargo pants perfect for a spot of line-dancing. A particularly fabulous moment sees Lipa in a full look from Nicola Brognano’s latest Blumarine collection, whose aesthetic feels like the perfect fit for the kitschy early ’00s glamour that has become Lipa’s style signature. (Here, Lipa wore a floral bandana crop top with a lacy trim, a butterfly belt buckle slathered with diamantés, and a pair of hot pink cowboy boots.) And all that’s without even mentioning her Phipps cowboy suit lined from head to toe with glittering mini light bulbs.
When it comes to playful, unexpected style moments, it seems Dua Lipa is very much back in the saddle. Giddy up!
