On the evening of January 9th, the renowned pop sensation Dua Lipa took to her Instagram to share a delightful recap of her experience at the 2024 Golden Globes.

Dua Lipa made a stunning entrance on the red carpet, adorned in a mesmerizing custom velvet gown meticulously designed by Schiaparelli's creative director, Daniel Roseberry. Despite the gown's breathtaking aesthetics, it became evident that the intricate design had a minor drawback when it came to practicality.

In the initial video shared on her Instagram post, Dua Lipa humorously showcased her attempt to sit down in the exquisite gown, highlighting the challenge of bending her hips while adorned in the luxurious attire. In good spirits, she expressed gratitude to the Golden Globes in her caption, cheekily suggesting that the only thing missing from the night was a reclining chair.

Beyond the fashion mishap, Dua Lipa played a significant role at the event by not only presenting an award alongside Elizabeth Banks but also earning a nomination for Best Original Song with "Dance The Night Away." Competing against fellow Barbie Soundtrack contributors Ryan Gosling ("I'm Just Ken") and Billie Eilish and FINNEAS ("What Was I Made For?"), Lipa ultimately witnessed Eilish and Finneas clinch the prestigious award. Later in the night, Barbie received recognition for cinematic and box office achievement, triumphing over music legends Bruce Springsteen, Lenny Kravitz, and Jack Black in the same category.

Anticipation continues to build among fans as Dua Lipa navigates the ongoing 2023-24 awards season. While making appearances at various events, the pop star's followers eagerly await more details about her upcoming studio album. Notably, Lipa has already treated fans to the lead single "Houdini," sparking heightened excitement for what lies ahead.
