Dua Lipa posed up a storm for Teen Vogue wearing a series of stylish outfits.
Her Alberta Ferretti high-waisted sailor pants were by far our favorite piece! The use of the gold buttons breaks up the dark tone of the trousers and adds those elegant designer touches that are noteworthy of the brand.
Styled with a fitted top, wide leg trousers are notoriously flattering and a perfect investment piece for your wardrobe.

Dua also talked about her competitive nature, but says she 'feel like I'm more competitive with myself.'
The songstress added: 'I was always want to do better than I did yesterday.'

The brunette beauty, who just released the single One Kiss with Calvin Harris, says she 'would love to keep doing this and keep being really honest.'
Dua Lipa continued: 'I want to keep not being afraid of my own thoughts.'
In her catchy tune New Rules, belts out advice to her fans, which includes things like 'One, don't pick up the phone - they're only calling because they're drunk and alone. Two, don't let them in - you don't want to deal with the drama of throwing them out again. And three, don't be their friend - we all now where that ends up.'
She told Teen Vogue if that the most important rule that she didn't include in the hit song was to 'quite frankly block them on social media.'

Dua revealed that her inspiration for the New Rules video came from a vintage Versace ad featuring Naomi Campbell.
She told Teen Vogue: 'The aesthetics, the colors, the campaign itself was really the story of that image, and it really grasped me.'
While the stunner calls the tune 'a sad song,' she wants it to 'be about the rules you would tell your girlfriends' and 'not be a video about a normal relationship.'
Adding: 'I think sisterhood is really important. It's really important to take care of the girls around you and keep your friends close,' she told Teen Vogue.
