Dua Lipa Wore a Deconstructed Strapless Sweater Dress With Towering Platform Boots Ahead of the 2023 Met Gala

A fashion tease before tonight's main event.

After taking a two-year break from the fashion’s biggest night of the year, Dua Lipa and her over-the-top style are returning to the 2023 Met Gala. And to make up for lost time, she gifted us with a head-turning look even before hitting tonight's red carpet.

On Sunday, Dua was spotted attending Anna Wintour's exclusive pre-Met Gala dinner in New York City. The pop sensation — who's set to co-host this year's event alongside Michaela Coel, Penélope Cruz, and tennis legend Roger Federer — wore a brow-raising woven dress by Marc Jacobs for the occasion. The deconstructed outfit consisted of a hunter-green strapless neckline with bust detailing and a massive sleeve knotted around her waist. While head-turning on its own, the pop singer upped the chaos level by pairing the sweater dress with towering lace-up boots. She rounded out the look with a leopard print bag, chunky gold bangles, and black sheer tights.

She styled her dark raven hair in effortless loose waves and parted on the side, along with a classic makeup palette that consisted of a smoky dark eye and pink lips.

The pre-event look comes hours before Dua will hit the red carpet to host this year's Met. The theme of the night is "Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty," and celebrities in attendance will pay homage to the late fashion designer and his influential career with their outfits.
