Last night Dua Lipa wowed at the 2019 MTV EMA’s in Seville with a performance of her brand new single ‘Don’t Start Now’.
While her vocals stunned the audiences at home and in the studio – as they always do – it was the creative direction of her performance that really hooked in viewers. The clever lighting and choreography to the sartorial choices made this one of Dua’s performances to remember.
Here’s how to get your hands on Dua Lipa and her dancers’ tights and outfits from the EMA performance, plus more details on one of her best performances to date.
Don’t Start Now
Dua opened the EMAs with her latest disco-inflected single ‘Don’t Start Now’.
This latest single was also made with the team who made her breakout hit, ‘New Rules’. But this latest track is signalling a more mature and confident Dua Lipa in preparation for her second album release.
The music video was directed by American-Australian film and music video director Nabil.
For her EMA performance, Dua worked with choreographer Charm La’Donna. Charm has worked with artists such as Rosalia and Selena Gomez and now is Dua’s primary choreographer. So expect loads more dance breaks and major performances from her in the future!
Colour pop tights
The performance was coloured with striking yellows and vivid reds, as is the music video for the single, which was just released on Friday, November 1st. But Dua stood out in the middle of the stage between all her dancers, dressed in all black.
She had fifty dancers up on stage with her, all dressed in bright yellow. They were all wearing yellow tights with a yellow long-sleeved leotard.
The tights the dancers were wearing are the Jonathan Aston Simply Colour Tights in Daffodil Yellow. They can be bought for just £5.75 a pair on The Tight Spot.
You can also buy the tights Dua Lipa was wearing on The Tight Spot. They retail the Striped Rule Tights for £8.95. Jonathan Aston Tights is a British brand who have been making hosiery since the 1960s.
Although the tights were a central element of Dua Lipa’s outfit, it could not be complete without the figure-hugging leotard with its risqué cut-outs.
The leotard was from the Mugler Spring Summer 2020 collection, designed by creative director Casey Cadwallader.
Dua Lipa’s stylist for the evening was Lorenzo Posocco, who also styled her blue Mugler red carpet look and all black outfit.
London-based stylist Lorenzo has worked with Dua multiple times now and the pair are quickly growing to be one of fashion’s most dynamic duos. Follow Lorenzo on Instagram here.
