Tartan dress, 90s lipstick: Dua Lipa’s look to receive Albanian citizenship

The singer of 'Levitating' and 'Physical' meets the Albanian president in a festive daytime outfit in pure pop style. With the plaid dress in fluorescent shades and the trendy festive make-up: minimalist with a shiny touch.

To receive honorary citizenship in her home country, Dua Lipa chose an elegant yet colourful look. Including minimalist make-up with 90s-style brown lipstick in a shiny version for a modern festive touch.

Dua Lipa's formal look: fluorescent tartan with dark lips

Last weekend, the Levitating and Physical singer reaped yet another success. Arriving in Tirana directly from Los Angeles, she met with the President of Albania Bajram Begaj who awarded her honorary citizenship for 'the artist's role in spreading the fame of Albanians internationally through her music'.

The look chosen by the Albanian-born British pop star for the solemn oath was a tartan dress in fluo blue with white accessories entirely by Bottega Veneta. Accompanied by makeup, formal with pop accents.

Plated hair and pop chic make-up

Born in 1995, the singer never forgets the aesthetic canons of her favourite decade and reinterprets them in her own way by combining super-planned long hair with minimalist make-up perfect for special occasions.

Thick eyebrows in a raven shade like her hair are the perfect frame for graphic black eyeliner. The lipstick is in a brick shade, exactly like the evening make-up sported on the red carpet at the 'Elton John Live: Farewell From Dodger Stadium' event a few days ago. The only difference: the manicure chosen for the fingerprint ritual: lilac and with rhinestone applications.

The lipstick of the 2022 holidays: brown and glossy

The focus is on lipstick in a dark shade but without exaggeration, a brown shade that recalls the Scottish pattern of the dress but also the 90s trend that never goes out of fashion. What makes it sophisticated? The light nude look and the shimmering finish.

The new festive make-up, perfect for a pop star and easy to replicate, was created by her trusted make-up artist Samantha Lau. Who, after the scarlet red chosen for Dua Lipa's platinum blonde look in the Donatella Versace style last spring, has for several weeks now been a firm believer in the thousand potential of glossy brown lipstick.
