The fashion industry crowned Lorde as their newest royal earlier this summer (I’m so sorry, it’s just that the puns come really easily with this one) when the New Zealander’s first hit made its way to US soil.
It’s with good reason. She’s talented, beautiful and completely different from every artist we’ve seen of late.
While Lorde’s been in the gossip rags a bit lately for her opinions on singers like Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, a recent behind the scenes shoot for The Wild showed the 17-year-old’s more amicable, soft-spoken side.
But I actually don’t care about the pop-industry drama. What I care about is the full Dolce & Gabbana look Lorde is pictured in (above) for the cover of The Wild’s upcoming issue, and how I can possibly work a crown-plus-mosaic-dress into my daily wardrobe — with the hair, with the shoulder-dusting door-knocker earrings. So if you’ll please excuse me, I have to go find a teasing comb and a queen to trade headgear with.
