The Story Behind Dua Lipa’s Costume in “Demeanor” Makes That Gold Corset Even More Luxe
Dua Lipa has been working with stylist Lorenzo Posocco for quite some time, and he’s behind many of her performance outfits, street style, and red carpet looks. But we can’t say we were prepared for the impressive, 18th-century-inspired couture look that came with her appearance in Pop Smoke’s video for “Demeanor.”
Lorenzo sourced this gilded corset, complete with bows down the bustier and metallic threads at the sleeves, from the Jean Paul Gaultier archives. The design was first debuted on the 1998 spring/summer runway during Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week, but it fits right in atop Dua’s full ballroom skirt and complements her stunning VRAM jewels so perfectly here. Dua and Lorenzo both shared behind-the-scenes shots from set, celebrating the fashion moment that has come full circle a whole 23 years later.
Ahead, see the Jean Paul Gaultier piece in its original form on the catwalk, then watch Dua bring it to life with her dance moves.
