In a world captivated by stardom and flash, few shimmer as vibrantly as pop sensation Dua Lipa. The allure of T Magazine’s latest issue for August 2023 is undeniable, as Dua Lipa graces not one, but two scintillating covers. Captured masterfully by Luis Alberto Rodriguez in the City of Lights, Paris, her contrasting outfits and moods exude sophistication. On the first cover (above), she’s a classic vision in monochrome, adorned in a Celine by Hedi Slimane dress, complemented elegantly by a Van Cleef & Arpels ring. The second cover paints her in shades of Miu Miu, sealing her status as a fashion icon (below).

Yet, as we delve into the pages, we find a woman much more profound than her covers might suggest. Stylist Carlos Nazario curates an exceptional wardrobe for the songstress, from the sensuality of Alaïa to the modern comfort of Skims, and the timeless allure of Gucci. The team of hairstylist Rio Sreedharan, make-up artist Samantha Lau and manicurist Michelle Humphrey further elevate her ethereal look, while Afra Zamara’s set design sets the mood, brought to life by Farago Projects.

But it’s editor-at-large Kurt Soller’s engaging tête-à-tête with the singer that truly reveals the depth behind her starry façade. Unlike many of her contemporaries, Dua Lipa has always valued her privacy, often shying away from laying her personal life bare. But she is astute enough to understand why many artists expose their intimate moments and memories. “How confessional can you be?” she reflects, musing on the line between personal artistry and invasive voyeurism.

Furthermore, Dua Lipa‘s dedication to Service95, her newsletter, showcases her commitment to amplifying voices other than her own. The foundation of her relentless work ethic? The ingrained values from her immigrant parents, reminding her of the fragility of success. “… if I don’t work hard enough, the rug could just be pulled from under my feet“, she muses.

Her ventures, ranging from film to podcasting, exemplify her insatiable thirst for exploration and learning. As she embarks on these new journeys, Dua Lipa remains a force to be reckoned with, merging her passions with a deep-rooted sense of self-awareness.
