Dua Lipa's Hip-Baring G-String Dress Is So Good It's Almost Unreal

Not to toot our own horn, but we have a tendency to predict trends before they make it big. Case in point: built-in G-strings. We covered the risque breakout trend when Emily Ratajkowski wore it in October and the following month we did a comprehensive investigation of the trend's popularity across Instagram, runways, and online shopping. Now, we have another stellar example courtesy of Dua Lipa.

She shared a series of Instagram photos of herself wearing a cutout halter dress with an ultra-low back that featured a built-in G-string. It's safe to say that it's a far cry from your average run-of-the-mill LBD. Naturally, Dua Lipa pulled off the bold look with aplomb—but did you expect anything less? Scroll down to see how she styled the trend and shop versions for yourself.

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of Associate Director of Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
