The Girls of 2013 - No. 5

December 18, 2013

There's no doubt that the breakout music artist of 2013 was Lorde, the young songstress from New Zealand that took the world by storm with her hit single, "Royals." I remember first hearing "Royals" while driving home from LA one weekend and being absolutely mesmerized by Lorde's powerful vocals. It was always a treat when I heard the intro's recognizable beat come on the radio. Apparently I wasn't the only one that was was in love, and the song made its way from the alternative to the pop stations. Everyone was hooked.

But don't call Lorde a one-hit wonder. Her debut album Pure Heroine is full of hits ("Team" and "Tennis Court" are my personal favorites). Lorde has won over the masses with her brilliant songs, her sweet demeanor, and her cool-girl-goth style - seriously, she could be a guest star on American Horror Story: Coven with her modern witch clothing.

Lorde's style signatures: black on black on black, plum lips, combat boots, and that iconic curly hair that gives Brave's Merida a run for her money. She is cool and laid-back but having fun with her style as she gets accustomed to the spotlight.

So what's next for Lorde in 2014? With three Grammy nods (including Record and Song of the Year) and more music in the works, we are definitely going to be seeing a lot more of Lorde. She may not be blue-blooded, but she sure is on her way to pop royalty.
