Daring. Dominate. Dazzling Dua Lipa

The British up-and-coming music icon topped the charts a few years ago with her female empowerment anthem "New Rules," and continued her hit streak with her latest hit single called "One Kiss."

But the charts aren't the only thing this Elle cover star has been ruling. She has also been dominating the fashion industry.

"I love to experiment and play around," she said in an interview with Refinery29. "It's kind of like music: The sound doesn't just include the face of the artist. And the artist should wear the clothes, not the other way around. Fashion can't be forced."

With her signature black bob haircut, the star's Instagram is filled with glittery Chanel bags and Fendi tracksuits as she prepares for the release of her anticipated second studio album.

"Occasionally, fashion can make you invincible," she said in the same interview. "It's like a shield at times. I think it's been a tool to finding myself, and expressing myself, in a way that I could never do in words."

With the 2019 Billboard Music Awards just days away, we have a feeling the Top New Artist nominee won't disappoint at the award show. But as we wait for her red carpet appearance, take a look at some of her best looks in our gallery below
