Dua Lipa In Giambattista Valli Couture & Alessandra Rich – BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards

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.

You may remember that Miley Cyrus wore this same dress to the 2017 Billboard Music Awards.

    With or without a belt that yellow dress just looks ick. The short mini with the dragging fabric behind it just is not working.
    The second, well, its even uglier. I actually dont mind the white coatdress as a performance piece only but the outfit underneath, silly.

    The Giambattista isn’t working off the runway and the belt is definitely an additional way to ruin it.
    The second one…isn’t my cup of tea at all.

    The yellow dress was amazing on the runway, but not so much on the red carpet, but i can’t say i hated on her, because i really loved the colour on Dua.

    And Miley Cyrus already wore this Alessandra Rich dress at the Billboard Music Awards (http://www.redcarpet-fashionawards.com/2017/05/22/miley-cyrus-alessandra-rich-2017-billboard-music-awards/) but i think Dua wore it much better.

    That type of mullet dress (the yellow GV) only works on the runway where the model is photographed walking. It looks ridiculous on the RC. The extra bit of fabric at the back looks like it doesn’t belong.
    Other than that, it’s a nice colour and I don’t hate the belt (even if it is unnecessary).

    The coat instantly takes me back to the ruffled net curtains of my (long ago) youth. Thanks for the memories!
