Dua Lipa's latest front row appearance just sent us into style overload. Fresh off the back of her attention-demanding naked dress moment at GCDS' Milan Fashion Week presentation (in case you missed it she opted for a totally sheer high-necked lace maxi), the international singing sensation and inadvertent fashion extraordinaire has come through with another look that we can't get enough of.
The 27-year-old stepped out in Paris on Tuesday at Saint Laurent's autumn/winter 2023/24 show, making for a seriously sultry addition to the front row. She wore a black hooded top with central twist detailing alongside sharply tailored trousers and a patent skinny belt.
The New Rules star looked chic in her monochrome ensemble
Dua topped off her look with a structured leather coat, classic stilettos, dark shades and bulbous jewellery that evoked the spirit of the 1980s.

Dua went for a deep charcoal smoky eye and statement jewellery

Grace Jones in a hooded dress walking in Alaïa's 1986 spring/summer haute couture show
The style became one of Alaïa muse Grace Jones' most defining looks, even worn by her character May Day in the 1985 Bond film A View to a Kill, and represents a major reference point in fashion design.
Nothing screams high octane glamour like this in-built accessory, in fact the style is something of a guaranteed eye-grabber.
The Hadid sisters played a hand in catapulting the trend into the mainstream – first Bella caught our eye when she walked in Coperni's AW22 show in a black mini dress with a detachable tailoring-inspired cape hood, and then Gigi oozed slinky glamour in a hooded asymmetric maxi at Versace's SS23 show.
Kate Moss hopped on the hooded trend at the WSJ Innovator Awards last year
Saint Laurent's previous collection championed the hood – creative director Anthony Vaccarello inflamed our hearts with his Grecian-esque drapery, as seen on the likes of Kate Moss, Laura Harrier and Jenna Ortega. Yet again, it seems that haute hoods are set to be huge for autumn/winter and Dua's sultry Saint Laurent moment is a case in point.
