Lorde: Stage outfits need to be comfy

Published 22/06/2014


Lorde doesn't like to be "constricted" by her outfits when performing.

The 17-year-old star shuns the notion of wearing revealing ensembles when singing to large crowds. Instead she chooses something which makes her feel secure and gives her freedom to move about.

"I don't like to be constricted when I'm on stage, so comfort is important. I've been wearing a Stella McCartney suit and a bunch of really crazy Rick Owens jumpsuits," she told the British edition of InStyle magazine. "I usually wear flats so I can dance around."

Although Lorde is praised for her edgy ensembles at star-studded events, the singer admits it doesn't come naturally to her. In fact she doesn't feel it's a priority to dress up for the masses and prefers focusing on her music.

"My first red-carpet event was a MoMA (Museum of Modern Art) benefit for Tilda Swinton. I borrowed a Chanel outfit, which was technically a jumpsuit, but looked like a dress," she explained. "It felt elegant, and it had pockets which is always useful. I don't do many red-carpet events - they make me a bit nervous. I make music; it's not my job to look good all the time."

The New Zealand-born songstress insists she still stays true to her own taste now she has become famous, and very little has altered.

"My style hasn't changed much since I became a pop star, except that I can now afford to buy the things I used to want to recreate," she smiled.
