The typical good suit is a lot of things (chic, understated, and professional being key buzzwords), but you likely don’t think of it as a glitzy going-out piece, right? Wrong! As Dua Lipa proved this week, a tailored two-piece is totally dazzling—as long as it’s covered in jewels. In a series of Instagram fit pics posted this morning, the star served up her take on suiting, and it has us rethinking our approach entirely.

In between rehearsals for her ongoing Future Nostalgia tour, Lipa snapped some photos in a blingy suit from Jacquemus’s spring 2020 collection (the designer, Simon Porte Jacquemus, was right by her side). With dangling crystals covering the entirety of it, the design felt surprisingly formal and ready for a party. The way she styled it helped, too. Lipa paired it with big blue earrings and crystal-studded mules.

Now, sure, throwing on statement jewelry can always take a look from day to night—but why sport diamond accessories for a night on the town when you can rock an entirely-bejeweled outfit? Stars like Lipa and Miley Cyrus are already on board with the uber-glamorous suit, as are labels like Tom Ford and Versace. It’s safe to say we officially are now, too.

Dua Lipa and Megan Thee Stallion Wore Twinning Versace Outfits at the Grammys To Recreate This Throwback Moment

Dua Lipa and Megan Thee Stallion Wore Twinning Versace Outfits at the Grammys To Recreate This Throwback Moment

Megan Thee Stallion and Dua Lipa were both anointed with the best new artist Grammy after their breakthrough years, so it only made sense that they would be on hand to give this year’s award to pop’s most recent success story, Olivia Rodrigo, at the 2022 Grammys. They did have one surprise in the bag for the ceremony. The pair came out in matching black floor-length gowns, and engaged in a bit of banter.
“You stole my look!” said Megan as she looked Lipa up and down.
“I was told I had the exclusive,” Lipa joked. “I’m going to have to have a talk with Donatella.”
“Yeah, because I thought I was the Versace hottie,” Megan replied, referencing a line from her song “Outside.”

Then Donatella Versace joined the pair on stage. “Basta, basta, basta,” she said. “Let’s do this, and this.” She then unclipped a part of Lipa’s dress to reveal a jumpsuit underneath. She then turned to Megan and unveiled a shorter body-con skirt under the original dress.
The fashionable moment was, of course, reminiscent of the 1998 MTV Video Music Awards where Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston showed up in the same dress and joked a bit about how they both thought theirs was one of a kind. Carey finished the exchange by ripping a layer of her skirt off, revealing a shorter hemline. It was an apt choice, as Carey herself won best new artist in 1994. (Houston, however, was actually never nominated for the award because her appearance on a Teddy Pendergrass single that had received a Grammy nod a year before she released her debut album.)
Lipa is a brand ambassador for Versace and has appeared in a number of the house’s ad campaigns. On the red carpet earlier on Sunday, Lipa wore a vintage 1992 look by the brand that was once worn by Donatella herself.

6 Celebrity Who Are Already Fans of Maximilian Davis – Ferragamo’s New Creative Director

6 Celebrity Who Are Already Fans of Maximilian Davis – Ferragamo’s New Creative Director

The young London-based designer Maximilian Davis has announced that he will be embarking on a new and exciting fashion journey as the creative director of Salvatore Ferragamo.
The Manchester-born creative, who showcased his eponymous brand’s autumn/winter 2022 collection during London Fashion Week last month, said on Instagram that he was “deeply honored” to be joining the renowned Italian label. Additionally, Davis, who was tapped by Lulu Kennedy to create under the Fashion East umbrella in 2020, shared that he was “looking forward to articulating his vision”.
Even before Davis, who cut his teeth at Grace Wales Bonner, landed the high-profile new gig, his harlequin patterned garments and elegant evening dresses had become an A-list favorite. Kim Kardashian’s outing in his plunging scuba body threatened to break the internet, and is up there with the all-time great celebrity rebound outfits. Meanwhile, self-proclaimed bad gal Rihanna has had several major moments in Davis’s designs. Her ComplexCon outfit in November, which included a show-stopping carmine halter from the spring/summer 2022 line, sent social media into a frenzy.
Below, six celebrities who can’t get enough of the Central Saint Martins graduate – and new creative director of Salvatore Ferragamo’s – designs.

Best Fashion Instagrams of the Week: Dua Lipa, Adele and Naomi Campbell

This week, fashion took over our Instagram feeds via hard-hitting musical performances. It comes as no surprise that Jennifer Lopez, who has been exceptionally busy promoting her latest release, Marry Me, made the list, given the strong sartorial streak she’s been on of late. After topping Best Dressed lists in a series of statement coats, the multi-hyphenate lit up the stage this week while performing in a sparkling, semi-sheer, hyper tasseled silver couture piece by Elie Saab, before making headlines once again by attending the film’s screening with beau Ben Affleck in a mini wedding dress.

The week also saw Adele burn up the stage during the Brit Awards, which she sauntered into dressed to perfection in an ebony custom Armani Privé gown that more than did justice to her musical royalty status. And then there was Dua Lipa, who had her own big fashion moment on February 9. For the debut of her Future Nostalgia Tour at the FTX Arena in Miami, Florida, the New Rules singer opted for a custom Balenciaga look in acid green lace. Because sometimes, more really is more.

In the world of fashion news, Kim Kardashian made it to the forefront once again this week, sharing her brand new cover for Vogue, which celebrates her new life as a single mom. The shoot, which also earned quite the response from Kanye West, shows Kim in her element with her four children—North, Psalm, Saint and Chicago. Another celebrity whose snapshot couldn’t be missed this week was Naomi Campbell. The supermodel lent her face to the latest campaign by Balmain in a coffee brown dress. For more fashion updates from the week via Instagram, start scrolling.

Dua Lipa Offers a Lesson in Modest Dressing in a Head-to-Toe Balenciaga Outfit

Taking a quick scroll on Dua Lipa‘s Instagram, one is met with sequins, micro-minis, color-blocking, and all things Y2K. While it hasn’t taken the Versace girl long to cement her name as the ultimate inspiration for joyful Noughties dressing, her versatility cannot be denied. Lipa recently stepped out in a modest outfit, proving she can carry off a colorful cropped top and skirt ensemble with just as much ease as she can an understated number.

The 26-year-old championed her Kosovo Albanian heritage by attending the premiere of director Blerta Basholli’s debut film, Hive, which is about a group of women coming together to provide for their families during the Kosovan war. She made the trip to Washington DC, styled by Lorenzo Posocco, in an all-black Balenciaga look: a three-piece ensemble consisting of a turtleneck paired with a full-length belted skirt and oversized blazer. Each item came from the SS22 collection of the Demna Gvasalia-led label, which has also found a fan in Kim Kardashian West, a star who’s had her fair share of viral moments of late. Above the neck, the ‘Cold Heart’ singer swapped her favorite braids and metallic eyeshadows for elegant side parted locks and natural makeup with a classic cat-eye.
The conservative yet polished outfit is sure to inspire many modest dressers in the region and beyond, more so with the winter season approaching. To steal Dua Lipa’s look, go for longline, loose-fitted blazers, and pair them with wide-legged trousers or ankle-grazing skirts in the same color. Offset both with a tighter top and pointed boots like Lipa’s, and pull it all together with a classic belt. Below is all the inspiration you’ll need to get started.

From Fendace to The Simpsons, the 11 Most Viral Moments of SS22

From Fendace to The Simpsons, the 11 Most Viral Moments of SS22

A supermodel moment is always guaranteed to send social media into meltdown during fashion month, but Kate Moss herself couldn’t compete with Marge Simpson in a Balenciaga ballgown this season. Moss’s Fendace cameo and Springfield’s PFW takeover were just two of the memorable highlights from the spring/summer 2022 presentations. Read on for your Vogue recap from the shows.
Photo : Daniele Venturelli
1. Everything about Fendace
Fashion’s fabulous switch-up – which saw Donatella Versace and Kim Jones swap roles to create two uniquely brilliant, logo-heavy collections inspired by their friendship – was a supermodel-filled extravaganza that even Elizabeth Hurley – the original Versace safety-pin queen – couldn’t miss. Watching Kate Moss dance with Shalom Harlow and Amber Valletta in the final line-up was, to borrow Amanda Harlech’s word, “hallucinatory”. History was made, while both houses flexed their cultural relevance and social currency.

2. Dua Lipa opening and closing Versace
As rumors circulated about Donatella Versace’s Fendace power move, the glamazon queen pulled out all the stops for her own Versace spring/summer 2022 show. Campaign face Dua Lipa opened and closed the show wearing a safety-pin punctuated look and sparkly pink party co-ords that deserve a spot in her tour wardrobe.

3. The Simpsons’ starring turns at Balenciaga
The biggest surprise of Paris Fashion Week was – d’oh! – Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie moonlighting as models in the Simpsons’ takeover of Balenciaga. It was a perfect, playful satire of the industry’s pomp and circumstance and totally joyous to watch. Of course, that was only part of Demna Gvasalia’s hilarious swipe at pop culture – the fake red carpet beforehand was equally thought-provoking. If Balenciaga can pull off such a coup again, we’ll eat our shorts.

4. Maximilian’s unexpectedly spiky finale
Newcomer Maxmilian Davis’s seductive approach to womenswear has made him a breakout LFW star. His first physical runway show did not disappoint. Pictures of the final look, a spiky wearable art piece, flooded Instagram following the Fashion East showcase, where it was met with all of the superlatives and emojis. Get yourself some “pose-wear” (as he described it) immediately.

5. Olivier Rousteing’s supermodel-filled Balmain birthday
For his 10-year anniversary at Balmain, Olivier Rousteing brought out the big guns and delivered a star-studded extravaganza for an audience of 6,000. Not only did Beyoncé provide an audio tribute recounting the designer’s achievements, the line-up of supermodels – Naomi Campbell, Carla Bruni, Milla Jovovich, Karen Elson, Lara Stone, Natasha Poly, and Natalia Vodianova – brought the house down.

6. Rejina Pyo’s diving board spectacular
For her first physical show since the pandemic began, Rejina Pyo took us to the London Aquatics Centre, where divers from Team GB (sporting the designer’s color-pop swimwear) gave a spectacular acrobatic display off boards ranging from three meters to 10 meters high. The performance, and the collection as a whole, was an ode to freedom – and provided the much-needed lift we all need right now.

7. Cardi B’s street style
Leave it to music’s most famous to dial up the drama for the street-style paparazzo. While everyone else doubled down on back-to-school tailoring, the rapper modeled extravagant, bijoux-laden Schiaparelli, sculptural new-season Balenciaga and major color-block Richard Quinn. We like it like that.

8. Gigi Hadid’s quietly confident runway domination
In the same month she planned a first birthday party for daughter Khai, Gigi Hadid returned to modeling with a bang for spring/summer 2022, tallying up countless appearances in New York and Milan. From Moschino to Versace and Fendace, she showed model newcomers how it’s done while reuniting with her fashion family for a fabulous month-long love-in. Now, it’s time for a well-deserved break.

9. Marni redefines the show experience
With a knack for bringing together the creative community, designer Francesco Risso celebrated the physicality of being in a show space again by merging the runway and its audience into one joyful fashion happening. Four hundred guests were fitted in bespoke Marni looks, to instill a sense of unity before the event had even begun. “It’s not so much about the spectacle, it’s more about bringing everyone into the dialogue,” Risso told Vogue.

10. Double the fun: Prada’s dual runways in Milan and Shanghai
Co-creative directors Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons showed their spring/summer 2022 collection simultaneously in Milan and Shanghai. The impressive spectacle saw models in each country walk the runways wearing the same look at exactly the same time. It wasn’t just a success in terms of show production, it reflected a world that is ever more globally conscious.

11. Chanel girls flicking their hair back and forth
Virginie Viard’s Chanel spring/summer 2022 show was a hair-swishingly sassy ode to the ’90s, replete with a paparazzi pit for models to perform for along the runway. On the final day of a pretty monumental season, nothing looked as good as those pearl and chain-laden girls giving good camera angles. Watch the hair flick videos to put an instant spring in your step.

Dua Lipa Debuts a Major Hair Transformation on the Versace Runway

Dua Lipa Debuts a Major Hair Transformation on the Versace Runway

Photo: Alessandro Lucioni
In Milan, Dua Lipa not only opened and closed the Versace show in true-to-form bombshell fashion, but debuted a surprise hair transformation. Hitting the catwalk in an asymmetrical skirtsuit featuring oversize rainbow safety pins and a single cut-out along one hip for a flash of midriff, the pop superstar’s signature dark brunette hair was dramatically longer, falling all the way down to her waist as she whipped around the turn of the runway.
The extra length was crafted by none other than hairstylist Guido Palau. “We’re emphasizing that straightness that Donatella loves with some extensions to really sort of exaggerate the girls,” explained Palau, who pulled Lipa’s extended pin-straight lengths into a taut, half-up style that helped highlight her lime green lids, which were painted on by makeup artist Pat McGrath. “It’s really a classic hair style, but we’re trying to make it look extreme.”
Photo: Alessandro Lucioni
Palau likened the silhouette to the enduring reference that is Catherine Deneuve’s signature half-up style, but with a “more modern and futuristic” twist; the center panel of hair sculpted flat to the head shape, as opposed to teased up to voluminous effect. To achieve sleek texture, Palau coated lengths in Bumble and bumble hairspray before flat-ironing it one section at a time, and then used a flexible hair wax to tame fly-aways. A single gold barrette fastened in the back finished the look.
Who better to showcase Versace’s latest take on timeless, va-va-voom hair than its official Gen Z muse? Remember: It’s Dua’s World—and we’re all just living in it!

Bella and Dua Deliver Yet Another Memorable Joint Style Moment

Bella and Dua Deliver Yet Another Memorable Joint Style Moment

Bella Hadid and Dua Lipa have each carved out distinctive personal styles, but there are some similarities they share. Neither of these two Gen-Z poster girls is afraid to take a fashion risk, whether in a buzzy new-season look or carefully chosen vintage. They’re also both inspired by the Y2K aesthetic: every look they serve has a hint of nostalgia.

To celebrate the first birthday of Gigi Hadid’s daughter, Khai, over the weekend, the duo packed a punch in printed pieces that reflected what was reported to be a “silly skirt or silly pants” dress code for the bash. Dua arrived in a look from Thom Browne’s Resort 2022 collection, styled with the designer’s playful dog handbag and a pair of chunky tartan heels from Nodaleto’s recent collaboration with Marc Jacobs’s Heaven line. Bella opted for a “silly skirt” too, wearing a psychedelic flared midi, a black tank, cropped white shirt and sculptural boots.

Bella and Dua – who is dating Bella’s brother, Anwar – were photographed together in the UK back in August, where they flitted between A-list watering holes Soho Farmhouse and Chiltern Firehouse to mark Dua’s 26th birthday. When in Oxfordshire, they wore cult trainers, summer boots and trophy accessories. Dua flew the flag for homegrown talent in designs by Mowalola – including an acid-green cow-print look – Maximilian, Martine Rose and Cro-Che. Bella was an honorary Brit in Alexander McQueen, and also dressed in pieces from Comme des Garçons, Eytys and Masha Popova.

For a city outing in London, they explored their grungier sides: Bella wore leather trousers, a printed cami, suede jacket and boots, while Dua hit the capital in a knitted top from Gabe Gordon, baggy grey jeans, trainers and a Hydra bag by KNWLS.

More is More: How to Layer Necklaces Like the It Girls This Summer

Photo: Instagram/@haileybieber
Minimalists, look away. A-listers are united on the fact that—this summer—the more necklaces, the better. The obsession makes sense: During a year when making an impression was restricted to our computer screens, “waist-up” dressing offered a fresh way to smarten up an outfit. Zoom-worthy jewelry became a focal point of casual catch-ups and work calls, even if people were wearing tracksuits.
The enthusiasm for layered trophy jewels is yet to cease. Hailey Bieber has been fueling the trend. Her favorite combinations include a thick gold chain from Anita Ko, a herringbone style from Fallon, plus sweet, beaded pieces from Frasier Sterling and Ian Charms. Husband Justin Bieber and Dua Lipa are also fans of the latter brand, which founder Lisa Sahakian describes as “wild and fun.” Dua regularly complements hers with stacked gems from Arms of Eve and Éliou.

Rihanna, too, has embraced the hype with a selection of flashy gold chains. She posed for a recent Instagram post in a graphic Married to the Mob tee, Linda Farrow x The Attico sunglasses, and a medley of chains from Bulgari, Briony Raymond (inscribed with her Pisces zodiac), and a chunky vintage piece from David Yurman.
Even confirmed minimalist Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has dabbled with necklace layering by way of a diamond parure from London-based Jessica McCormack (who regularly supplies the model with gems). Huntington-Whiteley experimented with two different lengths of McCormack’s ball ’n’ chain design, adding a sparkling pendant to the longer of the two.

Gigi Hadid, on the other hand, has been loading on necklaces inscribed with their respective baby names. Kendall Jenner, Meghan Markle, and Jennifer Lopez have also shown a preference for personalized jewelry—the latter confirmed the return of “Bennifer” with a “BEN” monogram necklace.
When she’s not wearing her sentimental ode to Affleck, J Lo has worn multiple charms from celebrity-approved label, Foundrae. “Layering is quite personal. Always start with the first piece you want to wear and build from there,” founder Beth Bugdaycay told British Vogue’s jewelry and watch director Rachel Garrahan. “The trick is to make your chain unique to you, so it becomes a talisman that you can wear every day.”
Below, Vogue selects the best necklaces to mix-and-match now.
