“With her deliberate take on Ann Margret’s bombshell visuals, Lana’s slightly surreal brand of Americana retro falls in line perfectly with fashion’s recent provocative references to the past.”
– Rolling Stone
Such a true statement! We saw some images of Lana Del Rey while looking for a model to feature here, and were convinced they were pictures taken back in the sixties. Her sixties inspired hair, makeup, and wardrobe selections took us instantly back to those days of go-go girls, vinyl boots and brightly colored tops with miniskirts!
Lana Del Rey has been the stage name of Elizabeth Grant since 2011. Elizabeth was born in 1985 and raised in Lake Placid New York. She has enjoyed successes as a singer-songwriter and model.
Currently Del Rey is one of two candidates being considered to record the theme song for the next James Bond movie. The other contender is Sam Smith, a new singing sensation from England.
Last year Lana did the hit theme song for “The Great Gatsby” – (Young and Beautiful) , and also recorded the song “Once Upon a Dream” for the Disney movie “Maleficent”.
She has had an equally successful run in fashion modeling, having graced the cover of Vogue numerous times, as well as Rolling Stone, GQ, L’Officiel, and Fashion, to name a few.
We hope you enjoy these photographs of the beautiful and talented Elizabeth Woolridge Grant, aka Lana Del Rey!
