If you thought Dua Lipa had a taste for daring styles before, you’ve never seen anything like this.

The “Don’t Start Now” singer, who is now up for an impressive six Grammy Award nominations this year, brought her edgy fashion up a level with her latest ensemble as seen on Instagram yesterday. In a press day-ready look, the British artist modeled a one-shoulder black satin top with a peek-a-boo arm cutout, all tucked into cinch-waist coordinating shorts.

The real kicker of her ensemble came with her choice of footwear. The “New Rules” songstress opted for a standout boot courtesy of Rick Owens; the lifted style came atop a 2-inch platform with a see-through 5-inch block heel for a heightened boost. The unique pair also featured a grill-inspired metal front plate and an angular top shaft design that slides right over the knee to skim the thigh. While Dua Lipa’s exact pair is not currently available, a shorter Chelsea-style Rick Owens Grill Kiss boot retails for $2,230 at Luisaviaroma.com.

Dua Lipa is no stranger to a bold footwear moment. For Miley Cyrus’ birthday on Monday, for example, the musician joined her co “Prisoner” singer in a combo of edgy attire. Dua Lipa’s own outfit included fishnet tights, a bustier top and a pair of wild, lace-up platform boots that appeared to measure over 6 inches in height.

Beyond a Grammy Award-winning music career, Dua Lipa dips her toes in the fashion world quite often. From sitting from rows at major shows during Fashion Month to selecting daring duds for red carpet appearances, she keeps things regularly exciting. The singer previously appeared in campaigns for YSL Beauté and Fragrance, Adidas and Pepe Jeans amongst others.

Her ensembles and style are credited to celebrity stylist Lorenzo Posocco; Dua Lipa is Posocco’s main clientele but he has also worked with Troye Sivan and Alex Demie in the past.
