Dua Lipa embraces dynamic glamour for Elle‘s 2024 Music Issue

Dua Lipa’s the latest covergirl for Elle, fronting the magazine’s annual Music Issue in head-to-toe Marc Jacobs. For the occasion, Lipa was shot by Dan Beleiu in Patti Wilson-styled outfits by Jacobs, Dior, Alaïa, Calzedonia, Haimana, Wolford and Roker—complete with sparkling Tiffany & Co. jewelry. In the accompanying article by writer Suzy Exposito, the star discusses her upcoming album Radical Optimism, as well as finding happiness, her early nightclubbing days, and ties to her home country of Kosovo.

“I’ve been busy for almost 10 years,” Lipa tells Esposito. “Every single day, I’ve had some bit of work to do. But people are going to say something anyway. People say a lot of mean things about a lot of people.” [And if being Vacanza Queen] “is what I’m getting, then I’ll take it. Whether I’m performing or going out, if it’s not fun, I don’t want it. You have to make room for joy. The world can be burning down, but goddamn…if you didn’t spend any of your life trying to be happy, I don’t know what you’ve done.”

Gucci will show its Cruise 2025 collection in London’s Tate Gallery 

Gucci is taking a trip to London for its Cruise 2025 fashion show, which will be shown at the Tate Modern gallery. Creative director Sabato De Sarno tapped the venue due to its roots in diversity, art, innovation, and architecture. However, this isn’t Gucci’s first foray across the pond; the Italian label’s founder, Guccio Gucci, learned about luxury in the city while working as a porter at the Savoy Hotel in 1897. As for what the show itself will include? The brand hints at a “convergence of art, fashion, and heritage,” as well as a “interplay of places, people, moments, and aesthetics.”
