Lorde Went Blonde and Looks Just Like Anya Taylor-Joy


Is this the “Green Light” hitmaker or the Queen’s Gambit star? Lorde just debuted a new platinum blonde look in her latest music video, and with it, she looks just like Anya Taylor-Joy.

No, the New Zealand native didn’t actually bleach her trademark dark hair. In the video for “Mood Ring,” she wears a wavy wig, part of becoming a character for the story, which is a satire of wellness culture. “I sort of underwent something of a transformation for this video because the song is satirical,” she revealed during a prepremiere livestream, per Page Six. In a tent with other women, the character leads some kind of ritual, looking for meaning in empty gestures. “I’m tryna get well from the inside. Plants and celebrity news, all the vitamins I consume,” Lorde sings on the track.

“I was writing from the perspective of a character who is not me, although I have at times shared some of her traits. She’s very cool, I love her vibes,” Lorde said on the livestream.

Check out the video for yourself below. Isn’t she serving Anya Taylor-Joy vibes?!

“When making this album, I did a deep dive into ’60s flower-child culture,” Lorde shared in a press release. “One thing that occurred to me as a major parallel between that time and our time is our wellness culture and our culture of spirituality, pseudo-spirituality, wellness, pseudo-wellness. Things like eating a macro-biotic vegan diet or burning sage, keeping crystals, reading tarot cards or your horoscope. These were all things that they were dabbling in back then, and that me and my girlfriends are dabbling in today.” Hey, whatever works for you.

Hmm, come to think of it, this look also reminds me of Nicole Kidman’s in Hulu’s new limited series Nine Perfect Strangers, another wellness satire. Could this wig be a hand-me-down, or did it come with the tent?
