Dua Lipa is rocking the ever-popular barbeque trend, posting a series of snapshots on Instagram on Monday in which she’s dressed head-to-toe in the iconic doll’s favorite color. Instantly a big fan of the IG shoot, Lipa struck several poses in an elevator door wearing a pale-pink crop top and matching Givenchy shorts. Both items in the chic set offered an athletic air, complete with belts around the bottom and top bands.
On the footwear front, she doubled down on ’80s-inspired workout ensembles and took the opportunity to showcase one of her most recent collaborations. She stepped out in a pair of mid-calf tube socks and pink metallic sneakers from her Puma x Dua Lipa collection. In the caption, the 26-year-old singer wrote, “On my way to my favorite festival @ sunnyhillfestival last night!!!!” The IG carousel features a collection of photos from Lipper’s elevator shoot, including glimpses of her and her friends getting ready for the evening together. She kept accessories minimal, opting for silver hoop earrings matching the color of the belt buckle in the Givenchy set.
After the label debuted its A/W 2022 collection in March, which featured bold shades prominently, Valentino is often credited with bringing it back to the forefront of fashion. The buzz surrounding the upcoming “Barbie” movie has contributed to the general excitement about all things pink, and explains the slight influences from the 1980s that look like Lipa’s latest in celebrity barbecue. Of course, this pale-pink Givenchy set isn’t the first time Lipa has embraced barbicore. She recently wore a Balenciaga catsuit and matching opera-length gloves on her “Future Nostalgia” tour. And then, months later on the same tour, the 26-year-old wore a bright-pink sequin miniskirt, matching bra and gloves, designed by Valentino. See her appearance from every angle.
