Good lord, Lorde looks gorgeous on the October issue of Elle magazine!
Although the 17-year-old phenom is open about her struggles with acne, her complexion looks creamy and flawless as she models a beaded Lanvin dress. And while she's called out some publications for over Photoshopping her, this stunning shot got the seal of approval on her Instagram.
Inside the issue, the precocious singer reveals that she loves hearing she helped her fans become more outspoken.
"People have told me that I've helped them feel confident, like they can say things they want to say. They can talk about feminism in class without people calling them a lesbian," she says. "That's so amazing that I can make someone feel like that."
Last night, Lorde performed her hits "Team" and "Royals" at the LAVA Lucky 13 party at Tao downtown in NYC to celebrate the 13th anniversary of the record label.
