Style Stealer: Lana Del Rey Is Off To The Races In This Laidback Look

Lana del Rey ranks pretty high on my list as far as seriously questionable celebrities go — is she legitimately talented or the fortunate byproduct of an “image makeover” and a powerhouse PR team? Chances are we will never know, but it’s whatever because I kind of enjoy her. I like her makeup and her music makes me feel sassy and light-hearted, which is a rarity for moody, tempestuous me! I also like her clothes, but only sometimes. This is one of those times: an embroidered off-white skirt is sweet and girly, but paired with a comfortable cropped sweater borrowed from the boys (literally — snag a V-neck in a youth XL or 14 for the perfect abbreviated length) and an easy pair of flats, the whole look takes on new sporty dimensions. No matter your opinion of Lana, you’ve got to commend her for her style savoir-faire — you can get the deets after the jump. Keep reading »

I have a mixed bag of emotions regarding Lana del Rey, but I’m pretty consistent with my love of her hair and makeup. Voluminous sixties-inspired bouffants paired with heavy-lidded cat eyes is just the type of thing I’m into, and Lana usually nails the look. Usually. Whatever’s going on here is so, so questionable: large and in charge with, like, a cluster of fake butterflies pinned to it? Could someone please explain this to me? I’m afraid I don’t understand.

Has anyone else noticed how much singer Lana Del Rey and breakout star of “Moonrise Kingdom” Kara Hayward look alike? Kara could practically be Lana’s baby sister or mini me. What do you think? (Below, a comprehensive guide to celebrity look-a-likes.)

I think we can all agree that Lana del Rey is not set to become the next star on the Adele spectrum. The singer-songwriter’s album, performances, and appearance have been panned by critics and consumers alike since she first gained notoriety via — what else? — the Internet. For me, she’s an incredibly guilty pleasure on par with Katy Perry: I will never, ever expose my love to any of my Young Hip Brooklyn (credit: Ami) friends, but they will have 300+ plays on my iTunes. Del Rey doesn’t have much more to offer than your average pseudo-edgy (ahem, potentially fabricated history of meth addiction?) bubblegum pop star, but I would be lying through my teeth if I said that I didn’t try to emulate her hair and makeup on an everyday basis. Her fashion choices aren’t even that impressive to me (though her Met Ball look could have been stellar had she shed the cape) but whoever does her face nails it every time. Her usual simple-yet-glamorous look is the one I aspire to recreate: well-defined, flicked-out eyes with long lashes, thick groomed brows, neutral lips, and long, side-parted hair styled in retro waves recall Brigitte Bardot. Am I a straight up fraud for loving this controversial star’s beauty style? [Canada.com]

Lana Del Rey’s Dating … Marilyn Manson?

Seriously, what is it about gothy singer Marilyn Manson? Does he smell really good? Poop gold bricks? Because I can’t figure out why all these really attractive women keep letting them touch their boobs. Manson has dated a veritable basketball team of hotties: Rose McGowan, Dita Von Teese, Evan Rachel Wood, porn star Stoya Doll, “America’s Next Top Model” winner CariDee English — and his latest conquest seems to be Lana Del Rey, if the gossip rags are true. What’s his magic guys? You tell me.

Lana Del Rey is making big, big strides, if not in the music stratosphere then in the fashion world. Mulberry’s Autumn 2012 collection strode down the runway in London yesterday, and viewers caught the first glimpse of Lana’s new eponymous bag. Yes, that’s right — the brand that coined the ever-lusted-after Alexa, as in Chung, is now offering the Del Rey, a ladylike tote reminiscent of a larger-scale take on Fendi’s illustrious Baguette. Though clad in jeans and a varsity jacket while seated in the front row, her new custom bag didn’t stray far from her lap. Keep reading »

Will we ever hear the end of Lana del Rey? She’s been suspiciously absent from Fashion Week, and I thought for sure that her “Saturday Night Live” performance would finish the singer off for good, but the past few weeks have proven me wrong: not only has she landed a Vogue UK cover, but there’s reason to believe that LDR may be about to officially hit the scene as a fashion darling. Lana, who’s notedly less “gangster Nancy Sinatra” and more “I went to boarding school in upstate Connecticut” (she actually did) birth name is Elizabeth Woolridge Grant, will be escorted by this year’s CFDA/Vogue Fashion fund winner, Joseph Altuzarra, to the Met Gala. Um, yeah, kind of a big deal. I can’t hate only because I really love the sartorial statements Lana/her team have made in the past — luxe fur coats + glittering gowns + Mulberry bags = my kind of girl. Hey, as long as she leaves her ridiculous diamond tooth cap at home, things will go over just fine. [Fashionista]

“I don’t understand why it’s so horrible to create an image of yourself, because that’s what pop music is. Even the celebrities who seem to be really real and down to earth still separate themselves from their image, so I don’t get it. I feel like people think she’s threatening because she’s all these things that women aren’t allowed to be, so people are trying to find the quality that isn’t genuine, and want to take away credit that she, you know, made herself.”

– An incredibly wise beyond her years Tavi Gevinson defends Lana Del Rey in an off-the-cuff interview with NYMag.com. Of Lana’s much criticized performance on “Saturday Night Live,” Tavi admitted it “wasn’t good,” but it also was “proof to people who think she has a whole team behind her that she wasn’t that trained.” Whatever you think of Del Rey’s music, Tavi is exactly right — first, Lana was trashed for having a too-perfectly crafted image, then she was trashed for not living up to that image in her first major television appearance. Which is it? [NYMag.com]
