Dua Lipa is a mega pop star, praised for her raspy voice, upbeat style, and addictive melodies. Her style is colorful, glittery, and frankly, very cool. She’s a character and a style chameleon who isn’t afraid to experiment, play, and make statements with her voice or her wardrobe.

As her infectious songs top the charts, Dua Lipa is also busy making new trends—from the Y2K revival to platinum blonde money pieces. Below, 22 of Dua Lipa's top fashion hits.

Less is more, and Dua Lipa’s vintage little black dress is a testament to this. Her mini was designed by Bob Mackie, and she paired it with sheer black tights, pointed-toe black pumps, and jewelry from the Bulgari Serpenti collection. This ensemble is unlike most of her more colorful, Y2K-inspired looks, and we love that she can feel at ease in such an elegant, timeless outfit.

Dua wore a custom silk vanilla-toned floor-length outfit for the 2020 Grammys. She paired it with just a diamond necklace and kept her arms free of bracelets or a bag. Her ombre, bang-heavy updo, bright aqua eyeshadow, and rhinestone-studded nails punched up the otherwise minimalist look.

Years before Barbiecore was a trend, Dua wore a shimmering bubblegum pink mini dress designed by Versace with matching pumps. This look was all about the glow—her bronzed and oiled skin radiated as much as the mini.

She accessorized with matte black tights, platform pumps, playful rings, and bright pink nails. We’re currently seeing her hairstyle—a classic ‘90s and Y2K center-parted bun with two strips of hanging bangs—everywhere, but Dua Lipa was once again ahead of her time as she styled her hair like this in 2019. The complete look is very Cher Horowitz.
