Dua Lipa's Butterfly Outfit Reminds Me of Every Britney Spears Poster I've Ever Owned
Dua Lipa, who has recently shown an affinity for collecting butterfly statement wear, works with her stylist Lorenzo Posocco to secure only the grooviest of pieces. The "Cold Heart" singer was spotted out in London rocking a sugar pink outfit from Blumarine's spring 2022 Primavera Estate collection, which included plenty of y2k trends, including the aforementioned butterfly. (In fact, Dua also owns one of the denim sets that debuted alongside this outfit on the catwalk.)
But when we saw her dazzling in this breezy chiffon crop top and skirt — with the perfect glitter pedicure to play up her rhinestone encrusted butterfly shoes with the wraparound ankle strap — we immediately pictured one of those rip-out Britney Spears posters from a 2002 teen magazine. Spears wore a similarly wispy, butterfly embroidered dress to Cannes in the early 2000s (below), and suddenly we can't unsee the resemblance here.
Dua finished her own outfit with a swipe of purple eyeshadow, silver rings, and a chainlink shoulder bag, also straight from Blumarine creative director Nicola Brognano's latest offering. Click through to zoom in on the details from this street style moment that's so heavily rooted in nostalgia, and go ahead and open up your phone calendar to remind yourself exactly what decade it is.
