I have recently become obsessed with Lana Del Ray. If you don't like her, seriously, don't read this post.
After hearing her music, I watched her music videos and generally spent a lot of time looking at her face on the internet. Mostly, I wanna marry her. She has great style and a beautiful voice. What struck me most, howevs, was the perfectness of her whole *vibe*. The 60's-Girl-From-The-Future is just perfect, along with the fabulous way she melts Americana into, like, everything. It makes me feel (finally) that America has this gorgeous culture, which is always something I thought America was lacking. You guys probably knew about this already.
Anyway, this/her/everything inspired a few outfits. Yes, I said A FEW. I'm mostly gonna focus on 3 of her songs plus other stuff of goodness from her.
First off, National Anthem, which is definitely my favorite.
In the beginning she's all cute and Marilyn Monroe sexy. I'm in love with it.
I like to think this is actually what the President's parties are like.
this is mostly the whole entire video I had to make it into one big picture because ALL OF IT IS SO PRETTY OMG.
Then then then there was Diet Mountain Dew, which doesn't have a totally amazing video but I decided to dress like it anyway because it's cute and I like the song etc.
"Baby put on heart-shaped sunglasses 'cause we're gonna take a ride..."
Ride goes off on the whole American bit but makes is so much more... I don't know. Grimy? In the best way possible, I assure you.
|Taylor Swift kind of tried to do the same theme but less cool and I was like "lol you tried honey"|
I modeled my outfit off the blue and red one up there since I have kind of the same romper.
I also tried out my hobo jacket to make it look more interesting and traveler-y.
Summertime Sadness is also just really, really pretty.
Then there are some random stills from random places, all enveloping her general goodness and summer-ish-ness, which I love.

Random stuff from Video Games
Also she did a thing with H&M and she was their model for FW2012, so her video for that is pretty squeal-worthy too. She makes things less 50's summer and more of a creepy 50's deadpan thing. Apparently David Lynch said he liked it, which is possibly the best compliment you can ever receive.
