Dua Lipa & Billie Are Fuelling The Appetite For #Regencycore 2.0

Dust off your corset, the second instalment of #Regencycore is here. But it isn’t Bridgerton that has inspired people to dress like a debutante: Dua Lipa and Billie Eilish are the poster girls of RC 2.0.  

Marie Antoinette would surely approve of Dua’s “Demeanor” music video, which was awash with references to the French queen. The singer swapped out her typically kitsch Y2K staples for a wardrobe brimming with frills and bows, masterminded by her stylist, Lorenzo Posocco. He cherry-picked a corset from Jean Paul Gaultier’s iconic spring 1998 couture collection, entitled “Les Marquis Touaregs”, for Dua to wear in the clip, teamed with a full-bodied white skirt. Searches for corsets spiked 43 per cent, while page views for corset tops rose 31 per cent after the release of the video. 

Billie Eilish has also been responsible for the rise; her June 2021 British Vogue cover prompted a 74 per cent surge in searches for corsets. Eilish has since worn styles from Miaou, including its satin Campbell corset that she wore for her Happier Than Ever launch party, and the patterned Figaro Campbell corset she shared with her 88.9 million IG followers back in July.
