Lorde always makes our favorite-dressed list, because she is great at expressing her creativity on the red carpet. But tonight, she went straight for the grown-ups table, looking that "best-dressed" title straight in the eye. Not only did she straighten her gorgeously chic hair (which, while we love her unruly curly locks, was such a treat to see), but she wore a pants suit not only with aplomb, but with a vengeance. Her Narciso Rodriguez suit made her look older and more mature, which, when you have the spirit of a 700-year-old fairy sprite from the Crystal Forests of Nevermore inside of the corporal form of an 18-year-old New Zealander, is absolutely fantastic.
The three-piece is such a sleek turn for the rocker, who favors edge over glam. Furthermore, her hair is so glossy we are pretty sure we can see our own reflection within its depths, and guess what? It tells the future.
