Addison Rae jumps up and down with excitement as she meets Dua Lipa at Variety’s Power of Women gala
Addison Rae is usually the one giving the thrills when she meets fans, but the tables where turned when the TikTok star met one of her idols Thursday.
The 23-year-old influencer-turned-actress looked excited as she met Dua Lipa at the Variety Power of Women gala.
Video captured by the publication and shared on its X account, formerly known as Twitter, shows the influencer, who has 88 million followers, jumping up and down and holding the One Kiss singer’s hands.
Addison, who stepped out in a black velvet mini skirt and matching halter top with a slight peplum waist for the star-studded event, can be heard telling the Levitating artist ‘I’m so excited to meet you!’
Dua, 28, donned a sleeveless burgundy satin gown with a plunging neckline and a bow at the bust.
For her part, the multiple Grammy winner was there to present an award to Barbie star Margot Robbie and her Lucky Chap producing team with the Producer of the Year Award.
Margot dazzled in a strapless brown gown with a fit and flair skirt. Her long blonde hair was styled straight.
Dua’s Dance The Night is included on the Barbie soundtrack.
She also had a small part as Mermaid Barbie in the blockbuster which has earned $1,441,740,954 worldwide.
‘So honoured to present Margot, Tom, Josey and the whole team at @luckychap with their very deserving Producer Of The Year award at last night’s @variety Power Of Women,’ the hitmaker wrote next to a video of her and Margot posing on the red carpet.
‘It’s really just so exciting and such a dream to be part of such a mammoth movie,’ she said.
‘It’s unbelievable. I feel very lucky,’ the MTV Music Video Award winner told the outlet on the carpet.
‘It’s just nice to see people’s response — the whole energy behind the film, the meaning behind it, the solidarity between women. It’s been beautiful to see.’
In accepting the award, Margot wrote the speech, but had her colleagues deliver the speech, due to her losing her voice.
During the speech, the witty Australian actress wrote that her partners relied on her too much when it came to public speaking.
Josey McNamara, who read the talk, admitted that was true.
‘We know that, so I vow here and now, in front of all these people and Dua Lipa (who I have a secret crush on), to not leave all the speeches to Margot for now on,’ he said.
Noting the irony of having two men speak for a woman at an event celebrating the power of women, Margot wrote.
‘I have to say. the only thing I love more than seeing women supporting women is seeing men supporting women.’
‘I have watched for the last 10 years as these two dudes have dedicated their careers to supporting women in this industry and nothing could make me love them more.’
