“No Tears Left To Cry” – Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande proved years ago that she wasn’t just another child star clinging to fame by attempting a music career, she was here to stay. And with “No Tears Left To Cry,” she has started a whole new era in her career as a serious artist, and people are really starting to take notice.

Ariana is known for her big voice and her trademark ponytail, but she hasn’t been known for her fashion choices in the past. But in the dreamy, effects-heavy music video for “No Tears Left To Cry,” Ariana pulls some serious looks. Her usual brown locks are also swapped for long, silvery blonde ones instead.

The songstress walks on the ceiling in a chic black gown and a long braid before falling through into another dimension. Later, she’s hanging off a fire escape in a tiny silver party dress and heels, her hair pulled into a sleek ponytail. She dances on the roof of a building in knee-high black boots and a white and black babydoll dress before gracefully falling right off the side of the building.

We may not know what’s going on in the video, but Ariana looks stunning. We’re used to her hair being impeccable (especially since extensions are very much something she uses), but her makeup and clothing are on another level in this one. This won’t be the last time you see Ariana on this list either, because she has been pulling major looks for her album Sweetener, and we couldn’t leave any out.
