Lorde brought a unique take on formal dressing last night to the red carpet at the 2021 Guggenheim International Gala.

The “Solar Power” musician arrived in a sweeping nude Dior gown, which featured a dark peach hue. The semi-sheer style included a strapless bodice and pleated skirt, and was cinched with a matching belt. Lorde kept her look’s accessories simple with sparkling drop earrings and several rings. However, the star’s greatest statement came from her hairstyle, which featured her brown locks twisted around her neck to form a helmet-like silhouette.

For footwear, the “Perfect Places” singer wore a pair of pointed-toe pumps. The style appeared to feature beige leather uppers, as well as triangular toes and heels totaling at least 4 inches in height. The pair was a sharp choice for Lorde, creating a neutral base for her bolder gown and statement-making hair.

The Guggenheim International Gala is an annual event that takes place at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York City’s Upper East Side neighborhood.
