Dua Lipa Has Epic Abs In A ‘Mermaid Barbie’ IG Pic And People Are Freaking Out

  • Dua Lipa is channeling her inner Barbie girl in her latest Instagram post, posing as a mermaid Barbie in a sparkly bra top with a blue wig.

  • In the pic, it’s hard to miss how totally sculpted her abs and arms are.
  • Dua loves doing yoga and, despite a busy schedule, fits in “me time” for her workouts.

Dua Lipa is always up on the latest and greatest Internet trends, so of course, when the new Barbie movie posters dropped, she was all over them. The “Levitating” singer, 27, just dropped an amazing picture on her Instagram feed of herself dressed up as a mermaid Barbie, rocking a bright blue wig, a strapless metallic bra top, and matching bottoms. The whole look showed off how super strong and toned her abs are, too.

Oh, and according to the DailyMail, Dua may be recording the theme song for Barbie, starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling, which drops this summer.

“This Barbie is a mermaid!! #BarbieTheMovie 💗🧜🏼‍♀️💕🌊 @barbiethemovie,” she captioned the pic.

And of course, Dua’s followers are obsessed with her look. One fan wrote, “Best Mermaid EVER! 🧜‍♀️❤️🫶,” which everyone else seems to agree with. The Barbie account even commented, “It’s gonna be a splash 💙🌊.”

If you’re wondering how Dua gets so strong, you should know that despite a busy schedule, she is very dedicated to her workout routines. “It’s such a busy lifestyle I feel like I need to try and do something for myself every day,” Dua told Viva.

One way Dua gets her body moving is through her dedicated yoga practice.

Lucky for us, she shared her exact yoga workout in a YouTube video for her lifestyle brand Service95 in August 2022, where she explained that she’s been practicing yoga for seven years now. “What I love about yoga is it really grounds me, and makes me feel really, really good physically,” Dua said. “And especially with all the dancing I do onstage, I get so much from the stretching the low impact rotating of joints and muscles.”

But all that yoga isn’t just to get some stretching in. Dua has nailed some pretty tough moves over the years. Case in point: She showed off her impressive handstand in an Instagram post from January 2023, which, by the way, takes a lot of core strength.

And…Dua showed off another one back in March 2022.

You should also know that Dua is also big on strength training, and she enjoys working with different personal trainers. One of her trainers, Sora Connor, previously told Women’s Health, that when the two train together, “we always work the entire body.”

“Sometimes it’s more core-focused, other times it’s glutes. The main objective is to work the muscles so that they become strong and toned but the focus is on creating a long, lean line,” Connor added.

As for her diet, Dua is all about finding a good balance. “I try and stay as healthy as possible whenever I can,” she said, according to Beauty Crew. “[But] I’m never one to stop myself having treats, I do love naughty treats. But I try and limit it to days when I’m not as busy, because if I do eat a doughnut it usually puts me in a food coma!”
