Looks like Demi Lovato is “Cool for Summer”.
The pop star joined the ranks of Iggy Azalea and Bella Thorne by wearing a “naked” Sergio Castaño Peña dress while visiting New York to promote their new single “Skin of My Teeth”.
“Holy fk NY was fun,” she captioned a series of Instagram photos – playing on the title of her upcoming album, “Holy Fvck” – as she posed in the bold green dress.
Designed to look as if the wearer were naked, Peña’s styles are made to order from Spain and printed with optical illusions including abs, umbilical cords, breasts and buttocks.
Lovato wore the designer’s “neon tribal dress” ($375) and a shiny crocodile-print motorcycle jacket, and showed off a shaggy mullet when she appeared on “The Tonight Show” on June 10 to sing “Skin of My Teeth.” .
The non-binary singer – who showed off new tattoos last month after updating her pronouns to include both she/her and she/she – told Jimmy Fallon that her new album “really represents who I am.”
“I made this album, you know, clean and sober – I can’t say that about my last album – but I’m really very proud of this album,” they said.
As for her daring dress, the ‘naked’ trend has certainly had a moment in recent months.
While Lovato’s green dress has no nipples, Azalea and Thorne both wore a racier red version ($469) of the Sergio Castaño Peña design — with the rapper wearing it last week for her 32nd birthday, and Thorne rocking the dress for the premiere of “Morbius” in March.
Cardi B also got in on the action, wearing a denim-style silk illusion dress ($615) from the Spanish designer in a Valentine’s Day photo she posted to Instagram.
It seems that Lovato not only sticks to the “skin of her teeth”, but also shows the skin.
