Lorde Covers 'Fashion' Mag May 2014!

Lorde graces the May 2014 cover of Fashion magazine.

The 17-year-old songstress opens up about her musical influences, her fashion choices and more. Check it:

On her love of menswear: “Jackets and pants are my power clothes. I agree with Annie Lennox when she said, “wearing a suit is like wearing armour.” I wore pants and a shirt at the Grammys because it made me feel confident. I remember looking at early photos of Patti Smith when she was wearing those men’s shirts she chopped off at the sleeve. That, to me, is the strongest look in the world.”

On her preferred work attire: “A lot of my stage clothes are suits, jackets and trousers that come from designers like Philip Lim and Stella McCartney. I’m a fan of Céline and Comme Des Garçons too because the clothes don’t look contrived and they don’t look like they are trying too hard.”

On one of her biggest influences: “Author Tobias Wolff is my hero. In terms of creating perfectly formed sentences and paragraphs and paying attention to word selection—Tobias Wolf is awesome. He’s been writing short fiction a long time but I read a collection called The Night In Question that blew me away.”
