When it comes to Dua Lipa, the popstar’s inclusion in Balenciaga’s Haute Couture runway show in Paris this week, alongside Nicole Kidman, Kim Kardashian and Naomi Campbell, is all anyone’s been talking about. Which means we somehow missed the popstar’s iconic wedding guest moment just one day prior to the Balenciaga show taking place.
A longtime fan of fun, colourful and eye-catching fashion moments, Lipa proved it’s possible to stay true to your own sense of style at a wedding, wearing a lace dress which was veering on white territory in the photos, but actually seems to be lavender in colour, with a pair of matching long gloves.
Given wedding guest attire is often pretty tame to avoid upstaging the bride, it’s iconic that Lipa didn’t stop there, either: she paired the look with eye-catching metallic thigh-high boots and Y2K-like sunglasses by GCDS.
The singer’s dress, matching lace gloves, and boots were from Bottega Veneta’s autumn/winter 2022 collection (the first from the brand’s new creative director Matthieu Blazy). She also wore a yet-to-be-released metallic handbag from the brand and matched her eyeshadow to the pastel colour of her dress.
On Instagram, Lipa posted a slideshow of images of herself attending the friend’s nuptials, captioning the gallery simply, 🎀weddingseason🎀, in reference to it being peak summer – and peak ‘I do’ weather – in the northern hemisphere currently. Not only that, but it’s been reported we’re set for a ‘wedding boom’ this year with an unprecedented number of weddings – around 2.5 million in 2022 in the US alone, the most since 1984 – set to take place. Wedding season, indeed.
