While most of the stars at the 2014 Grammy Awards opted for shine and sparkle, 17-year-old phenom Lorde opted to stick with her trademark black wardrobe and dark lips.
One thing was notably different, though: her hair! The New Zealand native opted to straighten her naturally-curly strands into loose waves. Her hair — along with her black satin dress — was the perfect choice for her moody performance of "Royals."
We doubt the curls are gone for good, though. The singer is known for her low-key style — and frequent trips to the thrift store.
"I love thrift shopping," she recently told MSN. "You can get 10 things because everything costs, like, $3. I feel weird spending money on myself — my first big purchase will be a double bed! I like simple clothes, but sometimes I'll go for a goth-witch vibe."
She might be a style icon to millions of teen girls, but she's influenced by another teen trendsetter: Rookie magazine creator Tavi Gevinson... and disco icon Grace Jones.
"She had all this crazy thrifted stuff, and so I would thrift and try and look like her," Lorde said of her style influence. "Grace Jones was an influence, because I was like, 'These shoulders! These pants! Girls can wear pants and be awesome.'"
