Ariana Grande has known her entire life that she was destined for a career in show business. After succeeding on the television series, Victorious and Sam & Cat, Grande decided to put her focus more firmly into the world of music.
Now at the age of 24, she has had her music videos been viewed close to 10 billion times and has gone on several tours with tickets that seem to sell out in a blink of an eye.
But her catchy music isn't the only reason people are checking Grande out. In fact, over 110 million people are subscribed to her Instagram account where Grande is open about all aspects of her life. Including uploading some seriously stylistic and at times, seductive outfits. Peppered throughout our list are also some of the best outfits that Grande has ever worn on stage, which also may help explain why her concerts are so popular!
These are the 20 Outfits That Only Ariana Grande Could Pull Off.
20 Showing Off Those Legs
Ariana Grande has several features that people seemingly can't get enough of. If one of your favorite features just happens to be her legs, then you may be over the moon with the next entry that we've decided to throw your way.
Because while Grande has had several outfits that highlight that particular part of her, we don't know if any photo does as strong a job as the one that we've selected for you. At only 5'0 tall, Grande is probably very familiar with having to use heels to help give her that extra height advantage. Let's just hope she knows how to keep her balance because a video of her taking a tumble at one of her concerts would surely go viral.
19 Sparkle Sparkle Behind The Scenes
There are many elements that you can use to help you stand out when you are a musician and are performing on stage. If you ask Ariana Grande what she loves to use to help memorable, sparkles and jewels may be pretty high up on that list.
While her fans surely couldn't get enough of her in this outfit on that particular night, it's clear by the fact that Grande took a selfie that she also thought she was looking pretty fantastic.
With the general level of coverage going on, we're sure she's also happy that it's an outfit she can wear on the stage and not have to worry about anything falling out of place; yet still allows her to look stunning.
18 Reminding You To Love Yourself
When looking to improve the overall shape of your body, there are several different things you may try and do. But at the end of the day, the most important thing you can do to help yourself is to make sure you are taking care of your mind.
When discussing her own sense of happiness, Grande offered some words of wisdom
"Be happy with being you. Love your flaws. Own your quirks. And know that you are just as perfect as anyone else, exactly as you are."
Which hopefully also means that despite the fact that Grande often finds herself with haters spewing negativity at her online, that she has learned to rise above it.
17 Acting Like A Kitty
If we're being completely honest, we don't really know what kind of look Ariana Grande is going for with the above photo. There's nothing wrong with rocking out in some black. But as for the leaning forward and the hands seemingly to indicate paws? But hey, whatever works for ya.
And at the very least, she does a pretty good job of showing off her nail job and that giant ring that she has on her finger! Plus, even with the weird presentation style of the photo, it's still near impossible to say that Grande doesn't look stunning - if not a little weird - with her pose.
16 Radiant In Red Leather
There is a famous episode of Friends where Ross finds himself wearing leather pants, creating an awkward situation on a date when it rubs against the couch and creates the sound of farting.
With the amount of leather that Ariana Grande has going on with the next entry, you can imagine that must have been a serious hazard that she had to factor in. But as hot as Ross ended up getting in the pants (literally), Grande may look it (figuratively!).
The photo shoot was taken back in April 2016, but we're sure fans wouldn't mind if she ended up busting the outfit out again for another photo shoot this year!
15 Embracing Her Love Of Pink
Ariana Grande has several different outfits put on display throughout this list that we're sure leaves her feeling gorgeous and desirable. But everyone has their own personal preferences, and when Grande was prompted to talk about what she loves to fill her closet with she replied,
"My personal style is a mixture of, like, girly, throwback, like retro '50s pin-ups, floral, like hippies, like anything feminine and like flirty."
When you take all those factors in mind, you may come away with the impression that the outfit that she's wearing in our above entry might be one of her favorites!
14 Storming Around The Stage In Huge Heels
There are many different things that Ariana Grande does to help keep herself in shape. But when she was asked in the past about what the best way for her to stay trim, she admitted,
"Nothing burns more calories than dancing in 5-inch heels...try it!".
With a workout like that, we're surprised you can't spot her wearing a Fitbit on stage to make sure she is getting the proper credit for her workout. After all, it doesn't really count if you can't track it right?
Perhaps the fact that she knows she is essentially in the middle of a workout is also why she feels so confident wearing revealing outfits on the stage!
13 At The 2016 MTV VMA's With Minaj
We need to apologize if you're not going to be able to get the song "Side To Side" by Ariana Grande (featuring Minaj) out of your head for the rest of the day. But we hope this stunning photo of Grande performing the song will be just as memorable for you.
To say that people were obsessed with the song may be an understatement when you remember that it has been viewed over 1 billion times on YouTube.
So perhaps it was only natural that at the 2016 VMA's that Grande was called on to perform the song alongside Nicki Minaj.
And while Minaj is beautiful, you may agree that she pales in comparison when standing beside Grande!
12 Loving The Light-Up Dress
Ariana Grande is no stranger to being the center of attention. And when she is performing, it's only natural that all eyes are going to be on her. Especially when she is wearing a light-up dress! Taking center stage as spotlight, she admitted,
"If I could, I would not do anything else. I'd just be in the studio for my whole life. I would never go to parties, events, and red carpets."
So apparently all the fame is not the ideal situation, but sadly, she kind of has no choice. That's what happens to a Disney star turned pop princess. It gets very hard to turn off the fame factor once you've made it as big as she has.
11 Wearing A #13 Dress
Some people think that the number 13 is unlucky. But there is nothing unlucky about the fans who got to see Ariana Grande perform a concert wearing a jersey with that number on it! Though if you're being fair, fans may be more drawn to the fact that she is rocking the sh*t out of the pink ensemble and less worried about the number that's on her chest.
While we don't know what Ariana Grande's favorite number is, we do know that she's a huge fan of Harry Potter. When discussing the series in the past, Grande admitted that she was particularly drawn to the character of Draco Malfoy! Grande went as far as to say that if she was to be put on the sorting hat, that she'd probably end up in Slytherin.
10 In A Latex Bunny Suit
Ariana Grande has had several tremendous songs over her career. One of her favorites, however, must be the song "Dangerous Woman". The song ended up being the same name as her 3rd studio album and when she took off on tour, it was titled the Dangerous Woman Tour.
The song when originally uploaded on YouTube went on to be viewed over 400 million times. Not content with only showing the world that side of her though, Grande later went on to release an a cappella version of the song - wearing that outfit you're probably still staring at - that got over 70 million views!
9 Wearing A Cat Onesie
One of the most comfortable things you can wear is a onesie. You can imagine that the bodysuit that Grande is wearing in the above photo would be just as, if not even more, comfortable. But considering it seems to have coverage on her hands, we don't know how practical the outfit would be for a night out on the town.
Plus, if you're being honest with yourself, if you saw a girl in the club rocking this outfit you'd probably keep a wide berth.
But for Grande, it probably just helped people become aware the second she was in the building as they proceeded to try and get all up on her business!
8 Antlers For A Festive Concert
There are many different things you can do to help celebrate the Christmas season. If you're a famous musician like Ariana Grande is, you're probably going to spend at least part of your holiday season performing concerts that have a festive theme to them.
As was the case back in 2015 when Grande was called on to perform at the annual Z100 Jingle Ball that is held in New York City. While wearing antlers on her head may not be the most conventionally attractive thing in the world, Grande's good looks still managed to shine through.
If you want Grande in your house during the Christmas season, she has also released 2 different Christmas albums.
7 Reminding You That Life Is Beautiful
There are millions of people who spend their entire life regretting the decisions that they've made. And while we doubt you regret your decision to open this list today, if you did, perhaps some inspiration from Ariana herself would help.
"Life is beautiful. Cherish every moment even if you're stressed or hurt or whatnot. There's always tomorrow and it always gets better."
As talented a musician and fashion icon as Grande is, her influence as a role model to her fans should never go understated. And judging from that outfit, we're sure she'd also love to remind you that women should always be taken seriously!
6 Why Her Music Is Relatable
When discussing why she feels her music is so popular, Grande stated
"It's very relatable, it's very fun, it's very honest. It's very, very, honest. I know that my fans learn a lot about me by listening to my music, if they really listen to the lyrics."
While there are many people out there who are not a fan of Ariana Grande's music, there is without question millions of people who cannot seem to get enough. And while it's fun to listen to her music on the radio, you may be an even bigger fan of getting to see an up-close look of how amazing she looks when she is performing on the stage.
5 Showing Off Only Her Left Side For Cosmopolitan
It's perhaps only human nature to have certain elements of your appearance that you prefer to have displayed over others. If you're not famous, there's a good chance you're going to be able to hide your insecurities a lot better than celebrities who are constantly being judged for their appearance.
Grande definitely looks tremendous in our above photo which was taken for Cosmopolitan magazine back in 2017. The only knock on the photo shoot was it was apparent that Grande would only show off the left side of her face; a trend she carries through most of her planned photo shoots.
While we don't know if Grande is insecure about the right side of her face, we do know that at the very least she looks gorgeous when showing off the left!
4 Her One Love Manchester Concert
On May 22nd, 2017, Ariana Grande had just finished performing a concert at Manchester Arena. As people began to leave the arena, a bomb went off that injured over 200 people and left 22 people dead.
The incident was a devastating blow to the city of Manchester. If there was any benefit to come from this horrific situation, it was Grande's benefit concert that she elected to put on in Manchester on June 4th.
Along with being an emotional show that featured several other talented musicians, Grande managed to help raise over $10 million pounds in support of those affected by the original tragedy.
3 Celebrating Her 21st Birthday
Ariana Grande has accomplished a tremendous amount in the 24 years that she has currently spent on this planet. Granted it helps when you get the start at a young age, as she did on the television series Victorious.
Back when she turned 21, she got to help celebrate the special occasion by performing at the iHeart Radio Pool Party.
Due to her popularity, Grande has been able to spend several of her birthdays under the public eye. While some people questioned the style of her purple-themed outfit, who is going to argue with the birthday girl?
2 At The 2015 All-Star Game
It's hard to say if Ariana Grande is a big of a fan of the NBA. But after she rocked out on stage, and looked damn good while doing it, at the NBA All-Star game back in 2015; it's safe to say that they're probably a pretty big fan of her.
Grande performed "Problem" and "Love Me Harder", but the big highlight came when she was joined by Minaj during a rendition of the song "Bang Bang".
And while Minaj may be beautiful, you may not be too upset that the above photo pushes her out of the picture and allows you to focus on Grande!
1 Making You Jealous Of Mac Miller
You may finish this list and find yourself incredibly jealous of the person who gets to curl up beside Ariana Grande at the end of the night. That person just happens to be Mac Miller, who fans may recognize from the music video "The Way". He's the guy who gets to make out with Grande at the end of the video!
We're sure that if she was willing to do that with him for a music video that she was sure sparks were going to start flying when they hung out off the set. While there are talks that they may be engaged, the most official record of their relationship is that they're only dating and have been since August 2016.
After seeing all these photos of her, he may start rushing to put a rock on that finger!
