Lorde Accessorized Her Stunning GRAMMYs Look With a Poem -- and a Flask

Lorde is a lady in red!

The 21-year-old singer stunned in Valentino at the 2018 GRAMMYs. Lorde, who was the only Album of the Year nominee not asked to perform solo at the awards show, appropriately accessorized her red chiffon dress with a matching red flask. 

A source told ET on Sunday that the "Green Light" singer -- the only female Album of the Year nominee -- was only approached by the GRAMMYs to perform as part of a tribute to Tom Petty, which she declined. The other Album of the Year nominees, Childish Gambino, JAY-Z, Kendrick Lamar and Bruno Mars, were all offered solo slots.

Lorde also took to Instagram during the show to share a photo of the back of her dress, which included a quote from Jenny Holzer's "Inflammatory Essays" written on white paper. "My version of a white rose — THE APOCALYPSE WILL BLOSSOM — an excerpt from the greatest of all time, jenny holzer 🕊🌹," Lorde captioned the shot.

Regardless of the snub, Lorde couldn't have looked happier to mingle with JAY-Z during the show, and was all smiles while sitting with her brother, Angelo Yelich-O'Connor, and Jack Antonoff.
