Best dressed frontrunner? Lorde turned heads while showing off a new sophisticated look at the 2015 Golden Globes in Beverly Hills on Sunday, Jan. 11.

The "Royals" singer, 18, wore a custom suit and crop top by Narciso Rodriguez while making her way down the red carpet. She donned Neil Lane diamonds, including a 100-carat diamond and platinum Cleopatra necklace, and five diamond and platinum rings.

Changing up her look, Lorde also went with a dark red lipstick and traded in her dark eye makeup for a more natural glow, by Kat Von D.

The Grammy winner's song "Yellow Flicker Beat" is nominated for Best Original Song, which was featured in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1. (She also curated the film's soundtrack.) On the red carpet, she admitted that she did feel a bit of pressure to pull it off.

"I feel like the movie is different than the others. It's dark and brooding," she told E! News' Ryan Seacrest. "I wanted it to simmer so I gave a lot of artists that note."

As for BFF Taylor Swift thinking she's wise beyond her years? "She seems to think that I'm wise," she joked, "I think she's wise!"
