True to form, the Wild Magazine Youth Issue editorial stars New Zealand singer-songwriter Lorde, real name Ella Maria Lani Yelich-O'Connor, decked out in a strikingly regal outfit. The music world's It-Girl of the moment can't seem to escape the connotations of her stage name, nor would she necessarily want to. The queen of electro-pop, the name befits her current standing as well as her regalia.
Shot by photography duo Stevie and Mada, the Wild Magazine Youth Issue editorial was styled by Johnathan Lawhorne. He clad the curly-haired beauty in ornate dresses from Dolce & Gabbana and more, topping them all off with an equally intricate gold crown. Makeup artist Jo Barker and hair stylist Kristin Heitkotter were on beauty duty.
