Lorde ditches her typical grunge/goth/intentionally non-glamorous look on Teen Vogue's latest cover, upon which she glows like we're not used to seeing.
The Grammy-Winning singer (real name Ella Yelich-O'Connor), 17, dons traditional makeup and a basic plaid scarf, while letting her locks run loose.
When it comes to her usual appearance - in other words, sans Teen Vogue cover shoot prep - she's the first to admit that her style is on the plainer side.
Although she understands there are "expectations in [the] industry about looking a certain way," Lorde tells the mag she prefers her tomboy look.
"I am feminine, but I really love dressing in boys’ clothes too. I guess that’s why I get labeled as ‘the grumpy girl,’ because I don’t play into that.”
Although she famously declares "we'll never be royals" in her breakout song, the teen herself is beginning to adjust to her newfound fame and lifestyle.
