In 2012, Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O’Connor—better known as Lorde—stormed into the pop stratosphere with her hit single “Royals.” Since then, the singer has gone on to become a true musical superstar, a multi-time Grammy Award winner, and a style shape shifter.
At the start of the singer’s career, she had a penchant for dark, witchy ensembles—often turning to black, full-length dresses paired with a mess of curls and goth-like dark lips. However, she hasn’t been afraid to turn on the glam, especially following the release of her 2017 album Melodrama, in tiered tulle gowns and dreamy sets. The New Zealand-native, whose public appearances are now few and far between, has historically gravitated towards powerhouses like Prada, Valentino, and Michael Kors as well as edgier labels like Rodarte, Collina Strada, and Bode. Below, a look back at Lorde’s best style moments, from Pure Heroine to Solar Power.
