The soulful singer has quickly become the music industry's "It" girl, so it was only a matter of time before the fashion world hopped on board, too. From her interesting choice of nail polish at the 2014 Grammy Awards to the makeup-free selfie that proved she's just as much a natural beauty as she is a talented singer, the 17-year-old New Zealand native has certainly mastered a fiercely unique signature look.
Now, the singer takes her beauty to new heights on the cover of V's Music Issue, looking absolutely gorgeous in a Chanel dress, David Yurman jewels and larger than life hair. The cover, which was styled by Carleyne, has four different versions, each featuring a different musical acts.
Inside the mag, the singer talks everything, from her affinity for an older crowd to her fear of "Lorde overload." The most notable part of the interview, however, was her response to criticism about the hypocrisy of the song "Royals," now that the lyrics no longer reflect what her life is actually like. She explains:
“You’re right, it is at odds with what I write about, and the reality of my life until a few months ago. But when I go home, I still do all the stuff I used to do. I dunno... part of me feels like it’s weird to just get sucked into that world.”
Sounds to us like she has a good handle on her fame, even if she has, at this point, become somewhat of a "royal" in the industry.
