L'Officiel Paris's Spanish Themed Editorial Starring Lana Del Rey Is Actually Really Great

So I’ve already said enough about Lana Del Rey‘s shortcomings as an artist/empty signifier/hubristic first year Pratt student to last me for quite some time. But what about Lana Del Rey, model? As it turns out, she’s actually really good at that. She should do it more!

Luckily, most things Lana Del Rey does undermine what modicum of credibility she ever had and we have to try less and less. Since the faux-indie musician has mythologized herself to within an inch of her life, she’s now aligning with Jaguar, we guess because she’s all about Hollywood and drugs and tragedy and rotten glamour and… sports cars? Seems appropriate. More »
