How much does Dua Lipa’s crocheted bikini cost?
The daring swimsuit, also featuring a marijuana leaf, is from the fashion company GCDS.
The skimpy cost a hefty $297.
It is available exclusively online, but sold out quickly after Lipa’s post.

Who is Dua Lipa collaborating with?
Dua Lipa’s newest collaboration was with Sir Elton John for a single titled Cold Heart which samples four of Elton’s hits – Rocket Man, Kiss The Bride, Sacrifice and Where’s The Shoorah?
The single along with an animated video for the track was released on August 13.
Elton said: “The last 18 months have been hard, but being off the road has meant that I’ve actually had time to get back to my roots as a session player and collaborate with some wonderful artists.
“And having the opportunity to spend time with Dua, albeit remotely, has been incredible.
“She’s given me so much energy. She’s a truly wonderful artist and person, absolutely bursting with creativity and ideas.
“The energy she brought to Cold Heart just blew my mind.”
Dua added: “Elton is such an inspirational artist and also has the naughtiest sense of humour – a perfect combination.”
