How Catsuits Became Dua Lipa's Tour Uniform
It’s fair to say that Dua Lipa is no stranger to a hectic work schedule, but these past few months have been nothing short of fast-paced for the “Don’t Start Now” singer, who is traveling from country to country for her “Future Nostalgia” Tour, which began in February 2022. While her days may be packed with traveling, Lipa never fails to turn heads with her Y2K-inspired sense of fashion. Off stage, Lipa opts for a more laid-back look, sporting low-rise trousers, baseball caps, and the latest in lingerie trends. But on stage, it’s a much different story.
During her 90-minute set list, Lipa has multiple costume changes, and each one coincides with a different act. In an interview with Vogue, Lipa elaborated: “Each outfit tells a different story, from the first one being like the dancercise class to the spacesuit at the end.” She also shared what she looks for in a costume – something comfortable that also makes her feel really good. Working with her stylist Lorenzo Posocco, the team enlisted Balenciaga to create two custom lace catsuits and Mugler Creative Director Casey Cadwallader to craft her finale ensemble. Lipa performs fan-favourite songs in these incredible pieces clad with opera-length gloves, cementing the aesthetic in our heads as quintessentially her.
Meanwhile, the star recently released her collaboration with Megan Thee Stallion, “Sweetest Pie”; is partnered with Puma on a line of athletic wear; scored the July 2022 cover of Vogue; and is about to make her acting debut in “Argylle.” Through it all, she doesn’t let her strong sense of style fall by the wayside.
