Dua Lipa is the kind of star who’s always surprising fans with new and ahead-of-the-curve fashion and beauty looks (see: the chunky, face-framing 2000s-style golden highlights she debuted in 2019). The singer’s latest jaw-dropping change? Her platinum blonde hair, which she revealed at the 2022 Grammys.
With her dark roots lining her perfectly-defined middle part, the Future Nostalgia singer’s pin-straight hair was a true red carpet moment. Grazing her lower back in a seriously sensual way, the near-white blonde was created by none other than celebrity hairstylist Chris Appleton, who has worked with the star’s enviable tresses in the past. This was quite the change, considering the fact that Lipa’s been rocking dark brown hair for at least a year.
In the wild world of TikTok, bleached blonde is considered to be totally cheugy by way of the platform’s Gen Z-heavy users — but, along with supermodel Gigi Hadid’s recent platinum hair change that shocked the world, Lipa has cemented that the icy-blonde hue is still a buzzy trend — and it’s not one that’s done among A-listers just yet.
What’s more, Lipa paired her hair transformation with a pure fire fashion moment: The singer wore head-to-toe Versace, complete with an ornate, high-neck detail that expertly framed her face. Perhaps the bold platinum lengths serve as a nod at the luxury fashion house’s founder and lead designer, Donatella Versace, who’s been known for rocking the same look since, well, forever.
