The 22-year-old singer did just that yesterday, heading out in New York in a risqué polka dot dress.
A one-shouldered midi, the Marianna Senchina piece featured frill detailing, bow appliqués… and a split that reached all the way up to her waist.

The side section of 23-year-old Winnie's beaded number was missing entirely.
We're just a little worried about how exactly a string "attaches" to our skin.
Let's hope it wasn't too painful when Dua took it off at night…
