Attention teenage boys of the world: Lorde is officially the kind of girl you can take home to your parents. Sure, she may be a little eccentric and they'll probably want to know why she wears dark purple lipstick ("GAH, Mom. It's called goth, OK?"), but the 17-year-old singer (who just nabbed the award for Best Pop Solo Performance) decided against glitz, glamour, and pantless leotards for her debut Grammys performance, and instead opted for A SENSIBLE PANTSUIT! One part Prada, one part Céline. NBD. The singer teased some pretty terrifying outfit inspirations last week, but she showed up in a crisp, sleeveless white top tucked into wide-leg black pants with a super-lengthy nylon belt. SO SENSIBLE.

Though those scary snaps may have gotten a little mileage after all, because DEM NAILS. Those things are, like, pure evil in the form of nail finger art. Lorde's dark-dipped design goes past her nails, bleeding below her cuticles. The dip-dyed look has been seen a few times before at Mara Hoffman's F/W 2011 presentation and on Michele Lamy, but have never gotten quite this kind of shine until Lorde hit the Grammys stage. It's super fashion-forward, a risk-taking look that we're really digging. We're not sure how we'd even go about copping it, but since ~some~ of us still haven't quite mastered painting our fingers with the opposite hand, we might just leave this one to the professionals.
