With her infectious tracks, powerful voice and on-point style, Dua Lipa is one to keep an eye on this year, says WGSN’s Sara Maggioni
Twenty year old singer- songwriter Dua Lipa is currently creating a huge buzz across both the music and fashion industries. Tipped as the next big thing by the likes of Forbes, the London-born Kosovan has all the right ingredients to become a household name in the next few months: catchy, addictive songs, amazing voice, great stage presence and zeitgeisty style.
Dua makes pop. But the cool and engaging type, infused with influences which range from hip-hop to tribal beats, and her most famous track, Be The One, has already climbed to the top 10 of key music charts across Europe.
Of course her model looks and uber-cool dress sense haven’t gone unnoticed with the fashion crowd: Stella McCartney featured her in her One City One Girl series , Next Models have already snapped her up for their books, and she has already been included in the ‘best-dressed’ list during the latest Awards’ season.
She also shares the same management as Lana Del Rey and her fanbase (and Instagram followers) grow by the hour: definitely one to get on your radar.
