Lorde on Fashion–New Zealand born, 17-year-old singer slash songwriter Lorde shines in a gold look from Dolce & Gabbana’s spring collection on FASHION’s May cover. Set to launch her own MAC Cosmetics collaboration later this year, the pop star poses for Chris Nicholls in the feature styled by Zeina Esmail. Lorde opens up to the Canadian magazine about teenagers today, her strong sense of self and facing industry pressure.
On her strong sense of self:
“I know who I am,” she notes when she looks at a cherry-red biker jacket by Saint Laurent, “and I’m not this.”
On kids today:
“I think young people have changed the way we view pop culture…we now have this discerning power. We all have Tumblers, we curate imagery every day. We can sniff out bullshit faster.”
