The “Levitating” singer has shared her experimental street-style looks throughout the year, as she’s pushed the boundaries of both sartorial norms and celeb-loved trends in looks including a bold leather cutout gown, a cartoonish sheer netted dresspierced UGGs, and denim pantaboots.

Lipa previously opened up about her playful style in a 2018 interview with Refinery29.

“I’ve never really wanted to put myself in a box and say, ‘This is my style and these are my style staples.’ I love to experiment and play around,” she said. “It’s kind of like music: The sound doesn’t just include the face of the artist. And the artist should wear the clothes, not the other way around. Fashion can’t be forced.”
