Looking stunning and opening up about her sense of self, Lorde poses for the Fashion Magazine May 2014 cover.
The 17-year-old singer, songwriter and Grammy-winner from New Zealand looks achingly beautiful in her shiny gold dress from Dolce & Gabbana’s spring collection. The brunette pop star poses for photographer Chris Nicholls for the Fashion Magazine May 2014 cover and feature, and tells the Canadian magazine how she feels about facing industry pressure.
“I’m drawn to women who aren’t painted in history as sweet figures,” she says. “Patti Smith was prickly. She was frustrated. She didn’t take people’s shit. There’s no better music idol for young women, because there is a lot of pressure for us to be really positive all the time. Every photo shoot I do, I get asked for big smiles, and I shouldn’t have to be that way.”
