Always one to go bold with her performance looks, Dua Lipa made an animal-print-inspired statement on stage at the Sziget Festival in Budapest, Hungary, on Wednesday evening. Taking a night off from her worldwide “Future Nostalgia” tour, the 26-year-old singer slipped into a black-and-white alligator-print bodysuit by Alaïa that boasted a high neck, no sleeves, and a Brazilian bottom silhouette. Underneath the form-fitting bodysuit, she wore a pair of black fishnet tights and went with satin heeled ankle booties for the finishing touch.
Lipa marked the occasion by sharing a series of videos on her Instagram, including one of her preshow ritual with her team. One of Lipa’s go-to styling tricks is wearing bras as tops, often paired with low-slung pants. Alternatively, she’s been spotted in catsuits, which usually cover the entire body. However, it’s somewhat of a rarity that she steps on stage wearing nothing more than a cheeky bodysuit. With this performance look, she’s channeling the likes of fellow superstars Lady Gaga and Lizzo, who regularly sport bodysuits and leotards when they’re on stage in front of thousands of fans.
What’s more, Lipa’s alligator-print bodysuit is a noticeably muted departure from her well-documented penchant for Barbiecore, both on and off stage. Some of her most memorable ‘fits as of late have included a matching nylon bralette and shorts in pale pink, a hot-pink catsuit and matching opera-length gloves, and an all-over sequin ensemble that included a miniskirt, a bralette top, and gloves.
