It’s still Hurley days… but pop queen Dua Lipa makes dream catwalk debut at Milan Fashion Week with tribute to Liz’s safety-pin dress


Pop star Dua Lipa drew admiring looks on her catwalk debut when she modelled a Versace dress inspired by the iconic safety-pin gown that made Liz Hurley famous.

The award-winning 26-year-old singer and songwriter added runway model to her list of talents as she graced the catwalk alongside stellar names such as Gigi Hadid, Naomi Campbell and Emily Ratajkowski. 

The three-time Grammy winner opened and closed Versace’s show, launching the event at Milan’s Fashion Week in a hot pink two-piece outfit split to the thigh.

Fashionistas said Dua's dress was a tribute to the Versace gown worn by a then-unknown Ms Hurley when she accompanied boyfriend Hugh Grant to the premiere of Four Weddings And A Funeral in London in 1994 (pictured)
