Back in 1974, Cher made waves at the Met Gala with a daring fashion statement that would pave the way for today’s “naked” dress trend. She wore a sheer Bob Mackie gown adorned only with silver streaks and white feathers, stealing the show and cementing her status as a fashion icon. In fact, she later wore the same dress for her Time magazine cover, which quickly sold out and even got banned in some cities due to its risqué nature. While Rihanna may be the queen of avant-garde fashion now, Cher was the OG trendsetter who dared to bare it all on the red carpet.
Last Thursday, Dua Lipa, a talented singer with dark hair and a powerful voice, impressed the crowd in Paris with her outfit. According to Paper, she sported a dress that looked like a perfect copy of Cher’s iconic gown, or it could have been the original piece itself. She wore it over a nude bodysuit, which added to the overall stunning look.
In a recent Instagram video, Dua Lipa was seen wearing a stunning dress while performing a cover of Troye Sivan’s “My My My.” Although the talented singer didn’t mention who designed the dress, she expressed her excitement in channeling Cher’s iconic style. Dua even captioned one of her photos with “Prep 4 dress of my dreams spam but for now gnight Paris 🇫🇷❤️,” showcasing her love for the outfit. It’s clear that both Dua and her team were aware of the reference, as her hairstylist Anna Cofone captioned one of her pictures with “A très cher moment in #couture ✨.”
Dua Lipa has once again made a fashion statement by wearing a dress that is similar to another celebrity’s outfit. This is not the first time she has done so, as in February, she wore a Giambattista Valli gown which was similar to the one worn by Kim Kardashian in an ODDA magazine photoshoot.
