Dua Lipa Continues Her Mermaid Barbie Summer in a Pink Metallic Minidress


To put it in Barbie terms, while on holiday, Dua Lipa‘s job is just beach. The “Dance The Night” singer has been stoking major vacation envy with her stunning shots of the rocky coastline, pastel sunsets, and ultramarine water of her native Albania. Also making us jealous is her never-ending parade of chic outfits, from her tomato-hued crochet maxi to her Celine minidress. (We also have to wonder how many suitcases she packed.)

While she’s rocked no shortage of colorful dresses and vibrant swimwear on her vacay thus far, Lipa broke out her most Barbiesque look yet. Befitting of a giant blowout party with all the Barbies and planned choreography and a bespoke song, the singer posed in a metallic pink Diesel minidress, complete with a dramatic calf-length train.

With her simple, dewy beauty look, and long, dark hair tucked behind her ears and falling down her back, Lipa looked like a real-world counterpart to Mermaid Barbie, her character in Greta Gerwig’s summer blockbuster. When it came to her accessories, she leaned into the metallic theme, mixing metals. She opted for a chunky gold chainlink necklace and oversized silver rings to power clash with her rose gold dress. And, of course, a Barbie needs a purse. In a blink-and-you-miss-it video on Instagram, Lipa carries an orange and yellow baguette bag.

What Lipa has shown from her Balkan getaway has us yearning for idle days lounging on the beach and extravagant, late-night dinners with friends. While we don’t know the details, whatever Dua Lipa got up to in her Diesel dress, we hope she danced the night away.
