22.04.2012- Sunday Style Spotlight #17 : Lana Del Rey

Sunday, 22 April 2012

I think it's fair to say that this time last year not many people had heard of Lana Del Rey. Fast forward twelve months, and Lana's distinctive voice, movie star features and Americana inspired style have catapulted her into the public consciousness, and with a summer schedule choc full of festival appearances, Lana fever shows no sign of abating anytime soon. As well as having one of the most distinctive recording voices I've heard in a long time, she's also a rapidly rising fashion icon, with a Vogue cover under her belt and a Mulberry bag named after her, despite having only been in the public eye for a matter of months. Lana calls herself the 'gangster Nancy Sinatra', and there's something undeniably classic about the way her looks are put together. Having said that, her approach to fashion is also fun, quirky and fresh, proving that there's much more to a modern music star than just selling albums:


I love this look at it centres around all things floral! There's something quite retro about Lana's styling, and I've tried to capture this as much as possible in this outfit. The ankle grazer trousers I've picked from River Island evoke a real 50s feel, and the vibrant shirt from Warehouse is perfect for channelling Lana's classic Americana look. Statement accessories come in the shape of the gorgeous hair clip from ASOS and beautiful bracelet from Oasis, both fitting in with the floral theme. I adore the patent leather shoes from Zara, and think they add an androgynous touch which keeps the look from being too cutesy. Finally, this bag from New Look is one of my favourite recent discoveries- and it's not a million miles away from the Mulberry Del Rey, is it?

Are you a fan of Lana Del Rey? What do you think of her style? And do you like the look which I've put together?
