While the Jenners were in various states of undress—exposing pelvic bones and other body parts—at this weekend's MuchMusic Awards, Lorde made just as big of a statement wearing not one but two pantsuits, which have become something of her signature look. They weren't your average Zzz-inducing black two-pieces, because Lorde is literally incapable of being boring. Rather, both were intensely '90s, undeniably #normcore (as eye-rolly as that descriptor is, it couldn't be more neccessary here), and in unexpected hues.

We need these in our hands right now.

Since it was first announced in March, we've been keeping a close eye on the collaboration between Lorde and MAC Cosmetics. The two-piece collection features a deep-plum lipstick named after her album Pure Heroine, which can be used as a lipstick or a stain, and a black eyeliner called Rapidblack. Finally, they're available for purchase.

We've been eagerly awaiting the launch of Lorde's MAC collaboration since we heard about it in March, and it'll be in our lives so soon! While you can't buy the two products—a deep plum lipstick named Pure Heroine and a black eyeliner called Rapidblack—until next month, Lorde joined MAC last night to celebrate the collection and perform.

If you've been eagerly anticipating what exactly Lorde was designing with MAC, (a) you're not alone, and (b) your wait stops now. Are you ready? The limited-edition collection includes a plum lipstick (as we predicted) and liquid eyeliner! Sorry, red lipstick, you're benched for Summer 2014—purple is our new warm-weather shade.

The campaign image features Lorde in her signature dark lip, named Pure Heroine, natch, and a very extended cat-eye. Um, if this limited-edition eyeliner can produce that exact of a line, I'd like 100, please. Thanks.

There’s something different about Lorde’s Teen Vogue cover. *Squints eyes, cocks head* Oh right! Lorde is wearing a whole lot of color. The 17-year-old alt-pop wunderkind is glowing on her latest magazine cover, where she’s styled in an orange-and-red plaid top from Marc by Marc Jacobs’ Fall 2014 collection—a pivot from her typically goth, mostly monotone M.O. Lorde’s softer makeup—a light smoky eye finished with silver shadow and a natural lip (not her signature purple shade)—is another departure that we can get behind.

Lorde opens up in her profile about the unrealistic beauty ideals placed on pop stars—and, she hopes, their eventual disappearance. "There are a lot of expectations in this industry about looking a certain way and having a certain kind of appeal," she says. "I am feminine, but I really love dressing in boys' clothes too. I guess that's why I get labeled as 'the grumpy girl,' because I don't play into that."

There were two remarkable things about Lorde singing with Nirvana at the band's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last night. First of all, the 17-year-old singer was born two years AFTER Kurt Cobain's death (also, literal teen spirit). Secondly, she ditched her typically all-black attire for a curveball colorful ensemble—and it all worked perfectly. Going with her familiar wardrobe of dark, grungy pieces would have been a little bit too on-the-nose for her performance of 1993's "All Apologies." And as for the bubblegum-pink choice, it helped highlight Nirvana's very, very awesome decision to invite only female stars (Joan Jett, St. Vincent, and Kim Gordon) to sing in Cobain's stead. Feminist and unexpected? Yep, sounds like Lorde fit right in with Nirvana's iconic image.

If you’ve ever wanted Lorde’s vampy beauty look, here’s your chance: Our favorite teen goth singer is collaborating with MAC Cosmetics on a limited-edition makeup line that drops this summer (#summergoth). Speaking about the collaboration, Lorde told The Cut, “I have loved MAC Cosmetics since I was a little kid. I remember saving up to buy my very first MAC lipstick [Snob] at 14, and it was used by about 20 of my friends! MAC has a very clear aesthetic, that has always felt fashion forward to me. So I was really excited to work with them on these products, which I use pretty much every day and night. I hope you will too.”

You know how when you hang out with someone a lot, you pick up their mannerisms and sayings? It happens to celebrities too! It looks like all the shopping trips/fun girl hang time between Taylor Swift and Lorde have resulted in the exchange of style secrets. Last night, Taylor attended the Vanity Fair Oscar Party in a Julien Macdonald long-sleeved, sequined gown that was reminiscent of the Tom Ford gown her new BFF Lorde wore to perform at the Brits a few weeks ago. While Lorde went for a "red carpet goth" look, Taylor and her new bob went for vampy old Hollywood glamour.

Lorde's goth-leaning style is more than just a fleeting trend. From the sensible pantsuit she chose for her performance at the Grammys to the glittering, glamorous Tom Ford gown she wore last night at the Brit Awards, her typically dark palette is decidedly not a reflection of doom and gloom and teenage angst. In fact, her onstage outfits indicate an incredibly mature sense of self.

Rihanna may be the leading advocate for "red carpet goth,” but her peer Lorde is hot on her heels, owning it all awards season long. Remember her dip-dyed fingers at the Grammys? Well, Lorde's look was even darker today at the Brit Awards where she wore a vampy broken disco ball of a floor-length Tom Ford gown. Ella took the black sparkly creation up one notch on the goth scale with the addition of the trusty brick-soled platform boots she’s stepped out wearing many times before and her signature deep purple lipstick. With the exception of her pout, her beauty look was all about her hair—much like her V cover and, you know, always.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
