One of music’s hottest “it girls”, Dua Lipa swiftly catapulted to the music industry’s A-list, covering herself in head-turning natural diamond baubles along the way. The London-born chanteuse infiltrated radio waves around the world with the massive success of her single “New Rules” in 2017, as well as her multi-platinum debut self-titled album that same year and she’s kept the hits coming ever since.

With three Grammy Award wins under her belt, Dua Lipa scores invitations to every major award show and event, giving her the opportunity to light up red carpets in diamonds every chance she gets. Most recently, she contributed to the Barbie movie soundtrack with her instant hit, “Dance the Night Away” and in March 2024, she announced her newest album, Radical Optimism, set to drop in May. The album will feature hit singles “Houdini” and “Training Season” along with nine more new tracks.

It didn’t take long for the artist to become just as known for her fashion as she is for her music. Lipa regularly rakes in ‘best dressed’ accolades for nearly all of her appearances, with many celebrating her ability to take classic looks and give them a bit of rock and roll edge. The star has been working with stylist Lorenzo Posocco since she was an up-and-comer back in 2016, and the pair have developed a trust that shows in all of her public appearances. Posocco has helped Lipa develop her own fashion identity, including rocking natural diamond jewelry that alternates between dainty yet impactful pieces and wow-factor statement-makers.
