This segment of “Inspired by Music” is featuring the ultra fabulous “Lorde”. She took over the music scene in 2013 when she dropped the single for “Royals”, and followed with other hits such as “Tennis Courts”, “Buzzcut Season”, and “White Teeth Teens”, drawing in fans all over with her clever teen angst lyrics and alluring dark horse style.
Lorde (Ella O’Connor) inspires us in many ways. Her music speaks to the teenage soul, and her sense of style never lets us down. She can make a basic white t-shirt look fashionable by pairing it up with the right statement necklace like she did in her Royal’s music video, or surprise us with purple lipstick and a black fishnet shirt as seen in her Tennis Courts music video. Since the release of “Yellow Flicker Beat” she has been seen in several awesome dress suits and slacks with button down shirts. A look that at first glance seems like what your mom would wear to work, but she totally rocks it with the right accessories and her wild, signature wavy locks.
We love that Lorde knows how to take the best fashion risks, and that makes her the perfect trend setter. We also love that Lorde offers even more than her penchant for style and lyrical genius. She happens to be crazy smart, and an advocate for self love, reminding all teens that body perfection doesn’t really exist, and that she herself is imperfect and real. Ella isn’t afraid to talk about her constant struggle with her acne and skin problems, and assures young teens that if she ever appears “perfect” it’s due to an awesome makeup artist!
Lorde has also chosen not to get involved in certain Hollywood social circles, feeling it is more important to not get sucked into the more unhealthy aspects of Hollywood’s glitz and glam, even turning down opportunities to perform with other artists who might not see things from her perspective. Which is something that is greatly admirable for a teen in the spotlight to do! Her healthy self image and advocating of others’, makes Lorde (Ella O’Connor) a true inspiration for teens all over the world!
We love how music inspires art and creativity, and even a healthy mind! The bloggers of Modern Teen Style, as well as myself, want to see your sessions that have been inspired by music, movies, books, or art!
