Just months after revealing she felt awkward posing for pics at red carpet events, the 18-year-old "Royal" crooner stunned on the cover of Vogue Australia's July issue looking very comfortable in a floral, long-sleeved Gucci dress.
"YOUR GIRL ON THE COVER OF A PRETTY UNDERGROUND PUBLICATION KNOWN AS @vogueaustralia," Lorde tweeted Saturday, followed by another tweet and another hot shot from the spread, showing her smoldering in a long-sleeved peacock feather printed dress. Style.com, with Lorde adding that it still feels strange to her that she's considered a public figure. "It's crazy going from living in a country that feels kind of small—and I'd never traveled, really—then coming to L.A. or New York for the first time, and meeting all these people outside your group of friends from high school," she told the mag.
"The world has expanded for me in this incredible way," she continued. "It's cool, and I'm very lucky that I get to surround myself with creative people who are clever and good at what they do."
The July 2015 issue, which is dedicated to music, also features The Preatures, Daniel Johns, Say Lou Lou and Sia.
