Dua Lipa’s catsuit era continues with her performance at the Firefly Festival in Delaware. On September 25, the “Sweetest Pie” singer took the stage in a striking lycra catsuit custom made by GCDS. The one-piece design featured a rhinestone-covered bodice fashioned as an asymmetrical bra top and thong pants. It also boasted a gloved top silhouette with a single long sleeve, a large midsection cutout, and a chain embellishment as an edgy addition. Lipa opted to forgo a necklace, accessorizing with a pair of dangling earrings and completing the look with black booties.
While the 27-year-old star is known for rocking bold cutouts (see: her “Future Nostalgia” tour costumes), this is one of her more boundary-pushing looks. She didn’t shy away from drawing attention to the thong cut, which she modeled from multiple angles on Instagram with absolute confidence.
This isn’t the first time she’s embraced the polarizing trend. On her recent birthday trip, Lipa posed in a similar denim-inspired thong bikini from John Galliano’s spring 2000 collection, complete with a semi-sheer sarong wrapped around the waist. Back in April, she also rode her blue thong over low-rise baggy denim jeans, embracing two two divisive trends at once.
Lipa joins the lineup of trendsetting stars who have made catsuits and bodysuits their uniform for music videos and onstage performances alike. It also includes Megan Thee Stallion, who donned a lavender cutout bodysuit with a corset belt at iHeartRadio Music Festival, and Cardi B, who wowed in some imaginative designs in her “Hot Sh*t” music video.
