British fashion legend Vivienne Westwood passed away today at the age of 81. Her career began in the 1970s, proving relevant every decade with its blatantly refreshing combination of punk meets glam. Westwood’s signature corseted design with a deconstructed sweetheart neckline has drawn the attention of celebrity A-listers for good reason, especially as many stars have returned to the label time & time again, including Euphoria’s Zendaya, singer Gwen Stefani, Oscar-winner Jessica Chastain, The Crown’s Helena Bonham-Carter, Wednesday actress Gwendoline Christie, the always stylish Kate Beckinsale, Disenchanted star Amy Adams, The Great lead Elle Fanning, pop singer Katy Perry, Westworld actress Thandiwe Newton, & of course, Sarah Jessica Parker’s iconic Carrie Bradshaw in her gown from the Sex & the City film, which reappears in the upcoming second season of And Just Like That.
Take a look through the images below as we honor Westwood’s creative contributions to fashion & the inspiration she imbues on Style Darlings everywhere.
Just because summer is almost over, that doesn’t mean the fun has to end. This summer’s best empowering dance anthems are still hot, so grab that playlist & get moving! Particularly, one pop artist whose star meter keeps rising is three-time Grammy winner Dua Lipa, who celebrates her 27th birthday today.
Her past & present smash hits, including “Sweetest Pie” with Megan Thee Stallion, “Levitating” featuring Da Baby (my favorite!), “New Rules, “Don’t Start Now,” & “Break My Heart,” are just some of the British singer’s best jams that prove her vocal range, lyrical versatility, musical relevance, & staying power as a compelling & feel-good pop artist.
Additionally, the music videos for these songs, & more, recall the TRL days of over-the-top choreography, fashionably playful costumes, & futuristic plot twists, making them major style inspiration sources from the club girl inside us all dying to shake things up.
So…what’s your favorite Dua Lipa song & video? Turn up the volume & watch the 10 stylish music videos below to get your week started!
