First image is screenshot from the video, video source: LanaDelRey on youtube. My new favourite song is Lana Del Rey’s “Born To Die” and the video is one of the main reasons I have it on repeat! The video is fashion forward as well as a little retro, which I think is what is really great about Lana’s style as an artist! I’m really digging the regal Queen Lana character flanked by her tigers, who seems to be watching over the rebellious “live fast die young” Lana in the outrageously short denim cutoffs and Converse high tops.
I couldn’t locate the actual Antonio Berardi white gown for sale anywhere (that Queen Lana Del Rey actually wears in the video) from his Spring 2011 Collection (look 5/39), but I put together a little board to imitate her style in the video! (Inspiration board images from their respective linked sites.)
