Dua Lipa Just Brought a Really Handsome Date to the 2024 Grammys: Her Dad!

This Barbie turned up the heat on the red carpet — and she did so with her dad at her side!

For her 2024 Grammys look, Dua Lipa rocked a custom silver Courrèges dress that she said made her feel "strong."

While speaking with Entertainment Tonight on the red carpet, Dua said, "I feel very excited to wear it. I feel very strong in it. It’s definitely a heavy, like, metal dress, so I was like, I feel very Joan of Arc."

The long-sleeve metal dress featured a plunging neckline and cutouts at her hips. The Barbie actress wore her fiery hair down and in loose waves and wore bold jewels from Tiffany & Co. But perhaps her best accessory of the night was the date on her arm: her dad! Dua brought her dad, Dukagjin Lipa, along for her big night.

Dua, 28, is nominated at this year's Grammys for two awards: best song written for visual media and song of the year, both for "Dance the Night" from Barbie. The musician, who also had a role in the movie as Mermaid Barbie, is on the list of performers at the show as well, alongside Billie Eilish, Olivia Rodrigo, Luke Combs and more.

Dua's smash hit song from the movie also earned her a Golden Globe nomination and three MTV Video Music Award nominations.

The "Levitating" singer — who already had three Grammys under her belt coming into this year's ceremony — loves to show out on the red carpet. For her last appearance at the show in 2022, she wore two looks, including this vintage Versace from the house's famous 1992 bondage collection — with platinum blonde hair.

She then hit the stage alongside Megan Thee Stallion in another Versace look in a twinning moment with Meg. Like, an exact twinning moment.

While presenting the award for best new artist, they recreated a moment between Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey at the 1998 MTV Video Music Awards.

Like Houston and Carey before them, Dua and Meg stepped on stage wearing the same outfit — only instead of the divas' understated brown dresses, Dua and Meg wore black Versace ensembles.

"You stole my look!" Megan said.

"Well, I was told I had the exclusive. I'm going to have to have a talk with Donatella [Versace]," Dua replied.

Versace herself then stepped onto the stage and ripped off fabric from the skirt to reveal two distinct looks just like Houston and Carey did more than 20 years ago. In the process, Versace declared, "These are my girls!"

"Thank you, Donatella," Meg said. "Now we both look like winners."
