Lorde Swaps Her Free-Spirited Style for Stealthy Chic Prada

Fashion Month is the best time for celebrities to experiment with their style in the front rows. That’s what the designer shows are all about, aren’t they—serving up new outfit ideas? That’s exactly what Lorde did at Prada’s spring 2023 presentation in Milan today: The singer swapped her signature free-spirited style for a sleeker, stealthier vibe. Entering the venue clad in big black sunglasses, she was almost incognito—she could walk right by you and you wouldn’t even know she’s the ethereal voice behind “Solar Power.”

Let’s talk about the outfit, which leaned heavily on classic minimalism. Lorde wore Prada’s stretchy, sparkly lurex turtleneck dress, which was complete with a pleated skirt. She paired it with a classic gray overcoat, making it feel more prim and demure. Compared to the bolder looks she wore during her recent Solar Power tour this year—which included metallic Collina Strada bodysuits and Isa Boulder bikini tops—the outfit here is decidedly more sophisticated and pared-back. Her accessories were even refined too, including her platform black sandals and yellow leather top-handle bag. 

The question now is: Will Lorde commit to the quietly-chic aesthetic that she debuted today post-fashion week, or was this a one-time look just for the fun of it? Whatever the outcome, regal looks good on her!
