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]
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.
Deciding to bare your midriff is a bold fashion choice. People are gonna stare. If you are going to reveal your midsection to world, you must be comfortable, confident, and it really doesn’t hurt if you’re incredibly toned. I’ve heard this is a trend now. If Lana del Rey is doing it, it must be! I’d better start doing my crunches ASAP. The singer gave the world a glimpse of her bare stomach at a recent Guns N’ Roses concert. Her midriff really seems to be enjoying itself. Cue “Welcome To My Midriff” sung to the tune of “Welcome To The Jungle.” Click through to see more sexy celebs baring midriff. [Buzzfeed]
