HER TIGHT SILHOUETTE­S have become a reliable — some might say a predictabl­e — staple for the singer. But when it’s that easy to look that good, who can complain? If anything, Dua Lipa’s ability to look effortless­ly flawless in a skintight bodysuit, like the black, crystal-embroidere­d piece designed by Casey Cadwallade­r of Mugler for her Future Nostalgia tour, is enough to keep her on our list for years to come. “The Mugler woman can be pretty much anything,” Cadwallade­r explained in an interview. “I think she’s a pretty bold and outgoing person. She’s not afraid to express herself, but comes in many different incarnatio­ns.” Lipa not only exemplifie­s the high standards set by Cadwallade­r, but her ability to display his looks, both subdued and ostentatio­us, have become unmatched in recent years. When she walked in Balenciaga for its second couture show under creative director Demna Gvasalia, she kept it poised in a room populated by some of the hardest-to-please folks in the game, gliding past rows of skeptical glances, unfazed and instantly chic. And in her flurry of eye-grabbing looks, from biker babe in Courrèges and Acne leather to moon walker in Diesel denim, she’s become a role model and guide for the next generation of musicians, taking Caroline Polachek on tour with her and making her feel like a musical and fashion equal.
