As for Dua Lipa, the popstar’s inclusion in Balenciaga’s Haute Couture show in Paris last week, alongside Nicole Kidman, Kim Kardashian and Naomi Campbell, is all everyone is talking about. Which means we kind of missed the popstar’s iconic wedding guest moment just a day before Balenciaga’s show.
A longtime fan of fun, colorful and eye-catching fashion moments, Lipa proved it was possible to stay true to her own sense of style at a wedding, wearing a lace dress that veered into white territory on photos, but actually appears to be lavender, with a pair of long gloves to match.
Given that wedding guest attire is often tame enough to avoid upstage the bride, it’s iconic that Lipa doesn’t stop there either: She paired the look with eye-catching metallic thigh-high boots and sunglasses. GCDS type Y2K sun.
The singer’s dress, matching lace gloves and ankle boots were from Bottega Veneta’s Fall/Winter 2022 collection (the first from the brand’s new artistic director, Matthieu Blazy). She also carried a metallic handbag from the brand that had yet to be released and matched her eyeshadow to the pastel color of her dress.
On Instagram, Lipa posted a slideshow of images of herself attending the friend’s nuptials, simply captioning the gallery, 🎀weddingseason🎀, in reference to the peak of summer — and the peak “I do “. Not only that, but it’s been reported that we’re poised for a ‘marriage boom’ this year with an unprecedented number of marriages – around 2.5 million in 2022 in the US alone, the most since 1984 – expected to take place. Wedding season, indeed.
