Ariana Grande's collaboration with the UK-based brand Lipsy has arrived, along with a lookbook that was plucked straight out of a prom photo booth. Almost every piece the singer models herself is an A-line mini dress with a sweetheart top; other looks include cut-out body-con styles that would not pass a school's dress code.
In the catalog, Ariana strikes her signature pose — head cocked, mouth agape, ponytail fluffed. Fact-checking that that is indeed her go-to stance somehow took me to yesterday's wild rumor that she is not alive, but actually dead. Here are more photos of a living, breathing Ariana "forever playing a bobbysockser in her high school's production of Grease" Grande modeling her debut clothing line.
