Ariana Grande was seen over the weekend performing at the iHeartRadio Wango Tango event in Los Angeles and looking very Ariana Grande-esque: Her chocolate-brown, crimped hair was pulled up into her signature super-high, super-long ponytail, and her red lips, sharp cat eye, and gleaming highlighter stayed put all performance long. It's exactly what so many of us picture when when we think of Ariana Grande, and that's what makes her look on the cover the July issue of British Vogue so surprising.
The "No Tears Left to Cry" singer looks over her left shoulder, her then-blonde hair left to hang loose in beachy, barely-there waves. It's a major departure for her go-to hairstylist, Chris Appleton, who worked alongside makeup artist Mark Carrasquillo to create a low-key look like we've never seen on Grande before.
With the theme cover line: "The Year That Changed Everything." Her beautiful yet unsmiling expression pairs with the story inside, which recalls the post-traumatic stress she has experienced since the bombing at her concert in Manchester just over a year ago.
