Lorde is headed to the Golden Globes on Sunday, and we couldn’t be more excited to see the performer hit the red carpet. As we anticipate the appearance of the Globe nominee (for her Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1 single, “Yellow Flicker Beat”), meet the music maker’s glam squad who will be getting her prepped for the award show. With a genius red-carpet group to help the performer kick off awards season, there’s no doubt she’ll be bringing her fashion and beauty A-game to one of Hollywood’s biggest nights. As Lorde says it best, “We’re on each other’s team.”
THE STYLIST: Remember when Lorde slayed in a feathered Lanvin ensemble at the Billboard Music Awards, or that other time she shared an Instagram photo of herself wearing a long, divine velvet jumpsuit by Chanel to the MTV VMAs? In both instances, it was New York-based stylist Rebecca Grice behind the sartorial magic. When she’s not sharing her behind-the-scenes styling sessions with the Grammy winner on Instagram, you can catch Grice ‘gramming photos of her travels around the globe, cute puppies and, oh, hanging out with (and styling) the Haim sisters too.
THE HAIRSTYLIST: Among the collaborations hairdresser Gavin Harwin has teamed up to do with the singer-songwriter, he counts the music video for “Yellow Flicker Beat” (the single that earned Lorde her first Globe nomination under the Best Original Score category) as one of his favorite projects. “I had the chance to give her different looks for different scenes, developing the idea of different personas,” shared Harwin, counting the polished pompadour during the ballroom scene as a favored beauty moment. Though Harwin didn’t know what Lorde would be wearing on Sunday at the time his email to Pret-a-Reporter during the week, he noted, “I like to be spontaneous, to be able to adapt an idea, but I do like the idea of modern primitivism, something with an element of savage beauty more forest than beauty salon.” Whatever it is that Harwin decides to do with Lorde’s curly tresses, he’s “ready for anything and keeping an open mind.”
THE MAKEUP ARTIST: No one wears a dramatic lip better than Lorde. Makeup maven MAC Cosmetics senior artist Amber Dreadon would agree. “The most iconic look is definitely the bold lip, especially the AMAs smeared version,” said Dreadon, who has collaborated with the 18-year-old ever since her album release. “It was mind-blowing to be on tour with her across the world this year and to see thousands of girls of all ages feeling confident wearing a bold shade of lipstick.” When working with the performer, Dreadon prefers enhancing Lorde’s natural beauty rather than trying to alter her features. She noted: “I love makeup that brings out the best in a face without looking like loads of makeup — making skin glow, refining the tone and playing with texture — there’s no mega-crazy face sculpting here.” As for Lorde’s Golden Globes look, Dreadon shared with Pret-a-Reporter that she’s been looking at different forms of art to inspire her, including “a visit to MOCA that definitely sparked a few ideas.” Come Sunday evening, we’ll be watching for Dreadon’s work of art.
