In 2012, Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O’Connor—better known as Lorde—stormed into the pop culture stratosphere with her hit single “Royals.” Since then, the singer has gone on to become a true musical superstar, a two-time Grammy Award winner, and, less momentously, a card-carrying member of Taylor Swift’s squad, all before turning 20. One thing that hasn’t changed, however, is the singer’s penchant for dark, witch-esque ensembles. Lorde is often seen turning to black, full-length dresses, paired with a mess of curls and goth-like dark lips. She’s not afraid to turn on the glam, but instead of mermaid gowns and naked dresses, opts for a sleek suit paired with a bralette and plenty of diamonds. Recently, the singer has started working with super stylist Karla Welch, the woman behind Ruth Negga, Karlie Kloss, Olivia Wilde, and more, who has put her in edgy pieces by up-and-coming designers, like Adam Selman, that still stay true to the pop singer’s signature stlye. Here, a look back at some of her best red carpet moments.
