Dua Lipa sported towering platform sandals on the red carpet at the launch of Saint Laurent’s new fragrance, “Libre,” yesterday in Madrid.
The “New Rules” singer wore a sparkly, halter-style minidress from the label’s resort ’20 ready-to-wear collection. The dress features a key-hole cut-out at the midriff and a flared skirt.
For footwear, Lipa selected YSL’s Paige sandals, which add 5.7 inches of extra height (they have a 3.3-inch block heel and 2.3-inch platform). The Paige has a tie at the ankle and criss-cross straps at the toe; YSL.com has it in stock for just under $1,000.
For fall ’19, platforms are back in a big way. Brands like Gucci and Rick Owens portrayed the shoes on the runway in aggressive, intimidating fashion — while Givenchy and Jimmy Choo showed more feminine, office-appropriate styles.
The “Electricity” hitmaker completed her look with delicate rings and simple jewelry. She wore her hair in a fringed bob complete with Cleopatra-style bangs.
The two-time Grammy winner is a YSL Beauté ambassador and the face of Libre.
When it comes to fashion, Lipa tends to favor styles from high-end labels. Aside from YSL, go-to brands include Versace, Valentino and Jacquemus. For shoes specifically, the Brit is a fan of buzzy rising designer Amina Muaddi, who also has support from Rihanna, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and sisters Kylie and Kendall Jenner.
