New Zealand teen singing sensation, Lorde, can now add Vogue girl to her growing swag of accolades.

The 17-year-old features in the March issue of the US style bible, wearing a pale aqua Miu Miu gown and a daisy flower crown.

The story, titled Lorde: The Music Phenomenon of the Year, sings Lorde's praises, calling the Kiwi "Industrious, imaginative, and intellectually precocious".

"Lorde holds an equally exotic appeal for her audience," Vogue writes.

"Offstage, she is arresting, with cutting blue eyes and a mane of curly brown hair.

"In her videos and photos, she often wears a mask of catlike makeup, giving her features a defamiliarized, almost otherworldly eccentricity."

Lorde, or Ella Yelich-O'Connor to her friends, tells the magazine her style icons are Grace Jones and David Bowie and names Comme des Garçons, Miu Miu, Moschino, and Simone Rocha among her favorite labels.

"The kind of clothes that I've found I like to wear over the past year and six months have all been things that make me feel powerful and strong."
