Lorde brought her sunny style from her Solar Power era to the stage in Nashville this weekend, opening her latest tour at the Grand Ole Opry House on Sunday, April 3 in three different ensembles that ranged from avant-garde to skin-baring.
Throughout the past year, Lorde has sported citrus colors and daffodil-hued looks by Collina Strada (which she wore in her “Solar Power” music video) and Christopher Esber (which she sported while promoting her album) and she brought those same pastel shades on tour. One look, a ruched sleeveless dress, featured that signature yellow, which matched her band members, who were also dressed in yellow double-breasted suits to complete the color story.
With a stage set with geometric shapes and rainbow lighting, Lorde’s colorful ensembles and experimental silhouettes popped against the psychedelic backdrop. At one point the “Green Light” singer took to the stage in an oversized bright green pantsuit worn with a matching silky Isa Boulder Brie ruched underwire bikini top under her buttoned jacket. She topped it all off with a pair of black Balenciaga trainers.
In her most theatrical look, the two-time Grammy-winner performed some of her past hits in a custom Collina Strada metallic pewter bodysuit with exaggerated puffed, wide-leg pants. With a similar silhouette to her 2021 Met Gala afterparty look, the star has opted for the eco-conscious New York-based designer time, and time again.
She tapped her trusted glam team to help her on tour, including stylists Karla Welch and Grace Wrightsell, hair pro Cameron Rains and makeup artist Amber Dreadon who worked on that shimmering, electric silver eye the singer sported in Nashville.
The New Zealand singer-songwriter has certainly expanded her style range since her chart-topping “Royals” debut in 2013. She’s gone from an edgy Tumblr girl aesthetic in her Pure Heroine era to her pastel-drenched universe with Solar Power, which is just what fans needed when it was released in 2021 amid the dark times of the COVID-19 pandemic.
With her Solar Power tour comprising of North America, Canada, Britain, Europe, and Australia, look out for Lorde in a town near you.
