It's a well-known fact that Dua Lipa likes to make bold fashion statements. From wearing knee-high ugg boots to oversized furry hats, we tend to wonder if there's anything she can't pull off. Confirming that she could literally wear a birdcage and make it fashion, Dua attended the premiere for Alita: Battle Angel in well, a birdcage.
Last Thursday, the pop star wore a black and white gown by Armani Prive. While that all sounds perfectly normal, it isn't until you see the dress that you catch our birdcage vibes. The gown consisted of a monochrome striped bodice and an open cage-like hoop skirt. Not only was the number brave as it was a daring fashion statement to make but the premiere was held in London where the temperature was -1°C. We predict her bum was blue by the end of the night.
If you saw this look and thought: 'I just have to have it', then good news because we found it...and for a fraction of the cost. The original design was first showcased by Armani Prive at their AW'18 fashion show early last year. While the price of the gown goes unknown, we can imagine it's way out of our budget.
Luckily, Fashion Nova has come to save all your birdcage dreams with their latest leather pants.Just like Dua Lipa, the online store is known for its outrageous fashion statements and for today's instalment of what crazy trend to wear next...cast your eyes on the 'can't contain this caged pants'. The "trousers" are high-waisted and made from black, faux leather and will set you back the grand total of $49.99 (which is roughly €43.72). Oh and if you're worried that they'll be too long on you, they come in a petite version too.
Okay, so we admit - it's a bit of a stretch comparing that Armani Prive gown to these faux leather caged trousers but hey if you squint really hard...
Despite the model wearing the trousers on their own, Fashion Nova does suggest to wear the item as "layering piece" so we feel slightly warmer knowing they could be worn over jeans or leggings.
Now all you need is a striped bandeau and you're ready to live your Dua Lipa fantasy.
