Dua Lipa has made her runway debut!

The 26-year-old pop star opened Versace's Spring/Summer 2022 show Friday night during Milan Fashion Week wearing a black cutout suit with colorful safety pins and bright green and blue eyeliner.

Lipa — the face of Versace's fall/winter 2021 campaign — walked again later in the night to close the show wearing a pink two-piece reminiscent of the outfit she wore to perform at the Grammy Awards earlier this year.

As models Lourdes Leon, Irina Shayk, Naomi Campbell and more sashayed down the runway, tracks from Lipa's Grammy-winning album Future Nostalgia played in the background.

"Let's get physical - we returned to #MFW with a physical show opened and closed by #DuaLipa and soundtracked by hits from her #FutureNostalgia album," the fashion house wrote on Twitter Friday. "Dua made her runway debut in a slashed black blazer and closed the show in a neon pink Metal Mesh look. #VersaceSS22"

The "Don't Start Now" singer walked down the runway with a familiar face — her boyfriend Anward Hadid's sister, Gigi Hadid.
