#9 – Excellent Lana(Del Rey). A little Brigitte Bardot(for the lips), a little Lizzie Grant (her real name, with which she debuted unsuccessfully). Here you have Lana Del Rey, 25 years old, American, she hit the mark with Video Games, a pop-nostalgic ballad written for her ex-boyfriend, that reached over 3 millions views on Youtube!
Thanks @Hileery for the Translation
The cover art of Lana’s song ‘Off To The Races’ was changed into this one at iTunes, which shows a new outtake from the “Yayo” shoot. (I call it this way because she used a similar picture as the background for the Yayo song on Youtube)
We love Lana Del Ray – you know this, we’ve told you often enough – and we’re predicting big things fash-wise for her in 2012. Antonio Berardi spoke exclusively to us about dressing the singer for her second video, saying ‘Ain’t I a lucky boy? It has been a while since I have been so excited about the arrival of a new artist’. As well as Berardi, Del Ray has been dressed by Prabal Gurung and Moschino, starred in a fake (but ace) PRADA ad for Wonderland and performed at the Mulberry Spring / Summer 2012 presentation at the Chateau Marmont in LA. And her debut album isn’t EVEN out yet. Watch this space…

Like her or loath her there’s a lot to be said about Lana Del Rey’s determination to make it and she takes another step further to making herself a household name today after signing a modelling contract with Next Models.
Next Models are currently home to the likes of Alexa Chung, Bonnie Wright and Harley Viera-Newton all other models who are better known for jobs as something else and now Del Rey is the latest name to be added to their books. It doesn’t come as any massive surprise, many a blogger attributed the singers good looks for her becoming a success in the first place and a clever website recently had online readers believe that she was the new face of a Prada campaign that later turned out to be a fake so we look forward to seeing what real campaigns she turns up in.
