I've always got room for a new style-icon in my life and I am seriously contemplating adding 25-year old US singer Lana Del Ray to the list.
Her glossy old-Hollywood features and preppy Americana wardrobe are almost as intriguing as THAT voice, you only need to watch her latest video for 'Born to Die' to be inspired by her style.
Lana loves a denim cut-off/Converse combo but looks stunning in an elegant-made-modern white gown whilst casually sitting next to a pair of calm looking tigers (as you do). Added to a few pieces of statement jewellery, her make-up is an accessory all in itself: bold feature-defining eyebrows, clear bright skin, loose wavy hair and a touch of deep red lipstick. The occasional bit of nail-art doesn't go a miss and neither do a fabulous pair of false lashes. Definitely a style we can all be inspired by!
Lana is a perfect mix of old and new style and definitely one to watch for 2012... snap up the following essentials to get her look:
