Before taking to the stage to perform at the BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards 2017 on Sunday (October 22) in London, Dua Lipa was on the red carpet.
This Giambattista Valli Fall 2017 Couture lemon-yellow gown had a light and diaphanous quality, but it didn’t fully translate on her.
I think the big black belt had a lot to do with that, as it took away some of the whimsy. Yet, I guess I can understand the rationale behind the accessory for the definition and edginess it provided.
Belt or no belt?
For her performance, the British pop singer switched into an Alessandra Rich Fall 2017 ensemble that again celebrated the mix of softness with edge.
Here, the fluttery, semi-sheer coat took on boudoir influences with the corset bodysuit underneath—before getting in touch with pop-punk territory in those platform boots. But, we wouldn’t have really expected Dua to wear the look any other way.
Be that as it may, the romantic ruffles of that coat still captured my affection.
