From the ditzy redhead in Victorious to the pop sensation rocking her signature high ponytail, Ariana Grande has been exemplifying ‘thank you, next’ through her fashion and career. Now Grande is about to have her  full-circle moment:  she is returning to her Broadway roots by playing Glinda in the 2024 film version of Wicked alongside Michelle Yeoh. With a top-selling vegan beauty line, r.e.m. beauty, under her belt, the multi-talented powerhouse has proved that there is not ‘only 1’ way she excels. 

There is no mentioning Ariana Grande without mentioning her thigh-high boots, which have accompanied her on-stage and off. Cue: Her stage look for  The Honeymoon Tour in 2015, which featured her black thigh-highs styled with lace bunny ears.  Three years later in  New York, Grande’s off-duty outfit starred her signature boots, oversized black sweatshirt and a green belt bag cinched at the waist for a more defined silhouette. While the boots have now retired, opera gloves and fitted pieces characterise her recent style at r.e.m. beauty launches and at Wicked promotions on the Wicked set. Even though Grande’s style has evolved throughout her past fifteen years in the limelight, there remains a constant: a warm, dimpled smile that sweetens up any outfit.
