Singer-songwriter phenom Lorde's been criss-crossing the globe this summer to promote her new album, and she was all set to headline Lollapalooza yesterday. Until the weather got in the way, that is, and organizers canceled her set. "This is the most MELODRAMA s*** ever," she tweeted.
Bummer! Let's focus on happier things, like the 20-year-old New Zealander's ever-evolving style. She's had a reputation for wearing gothy, entirely black outfits, but that's changed since hooking up with stylist Karla Welch (who dresses stars like Justin Bieber and Karlie Kloss).
While Lorde still loves a black crop top, she's been gravitating towards patterned jumpsuits and designers like Temperley and Simone Rocha. And for she's swapped her signature curly mane for straight locks or French braids. Here are some of Lorde's biggest recent fashion hits around the world, both on tour and on the red carpet.
1. New York
Lorde's stylist Karla called the Valentino gown the pop star wore to the 2016 Met Gala "very, very, very pretty." That's the only way to describe this pastel tulle confection. It's so pretty you don't even notice that she has a cast on her arm, which turned into the best souvenir ever when Lorde got it signed by all the celebs at the gala.
2. Los Angeles
Lorde went completely '90s for her Grammys look in Los Angeles this year: she threw a white Vince T-shirt under her fancy Alex Perry spaghetti strap gown. She is a '90s baby, after all.
3. New Orleans
For the 2017 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Lorde wore Jonathan Simkhai black velvet high-waisted pants with an off-the-shoulder crop top with bell sleeves — and a swipe of blue eyeshadow. Maybe bestie Taylor Swift and her love of matching two-piece outfits rubbed off on Lorde?
4. Hull, England
Lorde had to wear shades with this outfit, it's so bright. She picked out a neon pink halter top and even more neon wide-leg pants for this spring's BBC Radio 1′s Big Weekend Music Festival. It almost looks a little Spice Girls-inspired, right?
5. Manchester, Tennessee
For her headlining gig at Bonnaroo in June, Lorde went with a trippy, paisley-printed sheer Celine jumpsuit. Comfy sneakers for running around the stage are key.
6. Werchter, Belgium
Lorde wore sailor pants and a cool Dior graphic tee for a festival in Belgium this June. Kendall Jenner wore a very similar T-shirt this year, and knockoff tees are floating around the Internet.
7. Neuhausen, Germany
At Germany's Southside Festival in June, the singer picked out a black prairie-inspired dress with a gorgeous floral print. There's that same belt from Bonnaroo! Makes sense, there's only so much space on the tour bus.
No doubt about it: This major talent has a sunny forecast when it comes to fashion.
