Her latest Instagram outfit post showed off a halter-style mini dress covered in shiny embellishment that looked like it was slashed and shredded, offering peeks at her abs, tattoos, and just about everything else. Her gallery included short video clips of her posing — and showing off the back of the dress — and plenty of boob-cradling, just in case of an unintentional wardrobe malfunction. Lipa finished her outfit with square-front pink sandals and a long braid that fell down her bare back. Her accessories also included a handful of sparkling rings and a pair of silvery hoop earrings. As is her usual M.O., Lipa captioned her carousel with an inexplicable, completely out-of-context soft serve cone emoji and "can u see me?" knowing full well that an outfit like this is shiny enough to catch the attention of the astronauts stationed on the International Space Station. Dua Lipa Wore a White Bikini in the Dead of Winter The new outfit shot comes in the wake of Lipa's breakup with Anwar Hadid, though sources assure fans that they're bound for a reconciliation. In the meantime, it's clear that Lipa isn't slowing down when it comes to eye-catching outfits, especially after this skin-baring ensemble, a white-hot winter bikini, and the past year's obsession with crochet, whether it came in tiny bikini form or a two-piece matching set. Her 2022 metallic, diamanté-studded look might be a full 180 from the granny-inflected sex appeal of those pieces, but she's just continuing to show her followers that she's got the range on and off stage.
