Eternal Rhyme et Reason favorite Lana Del Rey covered Bobby Vinton’s “Blue Velvet” for a David Lynch -inspired advert for Swedish über retailer H&M.

(Photography by Inez & Vindooh; Images care of H&M) The complete range of images for Lana Del Rey‘s Autumn 2012 campaign for Swedish über retailer H&M have just been released and god are they good! Naturally the lips are big. But the hair is even bigger–certainly “beauty queen style.” The retro-styled collection is equal parts pretty and polished. Per the trend, floral prints are everywhere even in fall. You’ll see blooms on tops (see above) and bottoms (see below), but they’re done a bit abstractly and feature rich warm colors.

(Image from littlemonsters.com) Lady Gaga in a gown by Marc Jacobs looks an awful lot like Nicki Minaj on her September cover for Vogue. That or a troll doll… This is the 2nd time Gaga has been a Vogue cover story and I much prefer the former. What is this?!

Our girl Lana Del Rey is putting that modeling contract of hers to good use gracing the pages of Vogue Italia August 2012. She’s already been featured in Vogue UK and Vogue Nippon (Japan) which means Anna Wintour doesn’t exactly have her finger to the pulse of the zeitgeist as in years past. Check out some of the retro-inspired looks–more on the Vogue Italia site + a behind the scenes video of the shoot. Be warned: Lana’s all bedroom eyes and bouffants. All photographs by Ellen Von Unwerth. Purrfect. (Sorry! Had to.) Doesn’t she look like … Continue reading Lana Del Rey for Vogue Italia
Musician Binki Shapiro was recently profiled on fashion blog stylelikeu.com and I thought I would share. We’ve featured Binki before–but if you don’t know, she sings in the band Little Joy with now ex-boyfriend Fabrizio Moretti and Rodrigo Amarante. She’s known for her no-fuss look. And if you’re into that whole Los Angeles boho-hipster thing (like me), surely no one who does it better than Binki. See for yourself: Continue reading Binki Shapiro for STYLELIKEU!
