This Barbie loves Versace. For the European premiere of the Barbie movie in London, Dua Lipa graced the pink carpet in a head-to-toe look from her own Versace ‘La Vacanza’ collection—a collaboration between the pop star and the Italian fashion house. And we mean it: from her chunky necklaces down to a pair of strappy, silver, square-toed sandals.
Lipa’s ensemble was something of a Y2K fever dream. A refractive, psychedelic slip dress with gilded straps and paired with a charm-heavy bracelet and choker oozed Versace’s signature opulence (though with a whimsical twist). The most playful moment came courtesy of Lipa’s Crystal Butterflies Metallic Sandals, blue-winged insects wound around her calves for a pretty, playful finish.
The Barbie movie soundtrack features a song by Lipa (“Dance the Night”) as well as an appearance from the pop star herself as Mermaid Barbie. But while the dress’s slinky fit and metallic finish fit within the mermaid-core aesthetic, Lipa’s sandals are the stuff of above-water reveries.
