Priyanka Chopra and Taylor Swift have both been spotted wearing a swimsuit by Lebanese-American designer, Norma Kamali this summer.

The light pink two-piece was worn by Swift in her You Need To Calm Down music video under a hot pink faux fur; and Chopra donned the bikini while boating in Miami, Florida with husband, Nick Jonas, on a birthday trip.

The bikini in question is a light pink, vintage style two-piece, with high-waisted bottoms and a halterneck top, made of pink mesh and embellished with rhinestones.

Legendary designer Kamali, 74, posted the A-list endorsements on her Instagram, starting with Swift, saying she looked "cool and cozy in pink". As well as a faux-fur coat, Swift completed her OTT look with heart-shaped earrings and dazzling sunglasses for the pool shots in her recent candy-coloured music video.

Kamali is also credited with popularising shoulder pads in the 1980s.

Kamali then identified Chopra as wearing one of her designs, describing her in the same two-piece as "looking super glam ... on the high seas," adding that she showed "modern beauty looking so femme and acting so powerful".

Chopra accessorised her look with a pair of sheer pink gloves and posted a very loved-up snap with Jonas on her own Instagram.

The swimsuit in question is the Norma Kamali Bill bra and bottom set with rhinestones, in bubble gum pink. It has ruched detailing and is available to buy online at Dh2,240 ($610) for the top, Dh2,370 ($645) for the bottoms and Dh1,780 ($485) for the gloves.

There is also a rhinestone-free version for Dh385 ($105) for the top and Dh441 ($120) for the bottoms, and a haltered one-piece available for Dh790 ($215).

Chopra and Swift aren't the first stars to wear a piece by Norma Kamali this summer. The designer was behind one of the most recognisable looks in Beyonce's Spirit video, dressing both the star and her backing dancers.

"So happy to be a part of the visuals, so beautiful, thank you," Kamali wrote of dressing the singer on Instagram. "And to my team for getting it done!"

This week Kamali has also posted about Kourtney Kardashian wearing one of her designs, a black customised two-piece. Kamali described the reality star as "looking chic", adding that Kardashian has been "developing a great elegant style".

The New York-born designer is known for her parachute-like designs, her Sleeping Bag coats and high-end swimwear collections.

Kamali is often lauded for her youthful looks and exuberance, looking decades younger than she is at 74:
