"Hotter Than Hell"

"He calls me the devil I make him wanna sin"

- Dua Lipa

Finally Dua Lipa's whole album has dropped on Spofity!  About a year ago I came across the UK pop star's single "Hotter Than Hell" and was obsessed with her dark seductive tone. I loved everything about her vibe, therefore I wanted to do an inspiration post on two of my favorite songs "Hotter Than Hell" and "Lost in your light."  After listening to "Hotter Than Hell" I wanted to channel a sultry "devil" and "hell" look with this red vintage dress my mom found at a consignment store years ago.  I always loved it but never had anything to wear it to so this look was only fitting.   

"Every time I knock he can't help but let me in"  

I promise you Dua Lipa will not disappoint.  Over the past year she has released many catchy singles (all on her newest album) and collaborated with amazing artists like Sean Paul, Martix Garix and Miguel.  

And this brings me to my next favorite track and second song that inspired this look, "Lost in your light." My amazing photographer and friend Jim Sullivan is brilliant at executing my vision.  We were out in Joshua Tree recently and when the sun started to set it was perfect for capturing "Lost in your light."  I love how editorial we were able to make this look.  

"Lost in your light baby, I want to stay right here all night baby"

If you haven't gotten a chance to check her out I'd highly recommend listening to her new album!  Below are some of my favorite tracks:

- Hotter than Hell

- Be the one

- Last Dance

- Scared of being lonely (with Martin Garix)

- Blow your mind

- Lost in your light (feat. Miguel)

-No Lie (with Sean Paul)
