Ariana Grande looks unrecognisable on the July cover of British Vogue.

The singer swapped her signature winged eyeliner for barely-there makeup before stepping in front of the lens for photographer Craig McDean.

The 24-year-old’s skin takes spring dew to a whole new level thanks to makeup artist, Mark Carasquillo, who he even went so far as to add a splatter of faux freckles.


Clad in a Chanel AW18 lace dress, Grande also debuts blonde locks in the shoot – a far cry from her now-famous high ponytail.

The new look, courtesy of hairstylist Chris Appleton, left fans blown away, as they took to the comments section to express their excitement on Instagram.

One follower wrote, “You look so different when you wear your hair like that! So beautiful…”

While another joked: “DON’T YOU EVER DARE TO WEAR A PONYTAIL AGAIN.”

The cover interview focuses on the singer’s most transformative year yet, as she struggled with post-traumatic stress disorder in the wake of the Manchester Arena terrorist attack.


“It’s hard to talk about because so many people have suffered such severe, tremendous loss. But, yeah, it’s a real thing,” she told the publication.

“I know those families and my fans, and everyone there experienced a tremendous amount of it as well. Time is the biggest thing. I feel like I shouldn’t even be talking about my own experience – like I shouldn’t even say anything. I don’t think I’ll ever know how to talk about it and not cry.”

The issue is available on newsstands from June 8.
