Dua Lipa provided the entertainment at Elton John at the 29th annual Academy Awards viewing part to benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation on Sunday (April 25).
Usually this is a huge affair that has more guests than the Oscars themselves, but on this occasion the event was scaled back due to the global pandemic, however, the event was still able to raise plenty of money for the benefit.
On Monday I was just saying how I’m embracing black gowns again, but the second I saw the British singer in this custom Balenciaga gown my first reaction was “I can’t really see anything.”
And here lies the problem.
The most beautiful detail which is the skirt is lost in this dark room. With better lighting and less clutter in the background, I think I would’ve hyperventilating over this.
Dua styled her dress with a show-stopping BVLGARI diamond necklace with Divas’ Dream emerald and diamond earrings and a selection of Serpenti and Divas’ Dream rings.
Her second look was giving me apocalyptic chic as she looks like a modern goddess with extreme glamour on her mind.
I’m getting the vision on account of the shredded nature of the dress which gives the piece a deconstructed feel.
Chopard earrings and a Fabergeě ring completed her look along with simple white pumps.
You’ll either be happy that the singer is giving us something different from her beloved Mugler and Versace, or you’ll feel that neither of these looks were the right fit for the singer.
