A Beginner's Guide to Lana Del Rey

Lana Del Rey is one of the most promising talents of 2012. Her debut album entitled 'Born To Die' has already stormed to the top of the UK Singles Chart and is making major movements in other album charts across the globe. Singles 'Video Games' and 'Born To Die' have also effectively placed the American firmly on the musical map. The fresh faced 25-year-old New Yorker is putting out some very original soul ballad-esque vibes, but it seems not everyone is happy with the way she is going about her business.  Her performance on Saturday Night Live was heavily criticised, with one Juliette Lewis stating, 'it was like watching a 12-year-old in their bedroom when they're pretending to perform and sing'. Make of it what you like!

Lana has recently been snapped up by Next Model Management and it is no illusion why. She is a very attractive lady with model-esque features in abundance and an awe-inspiring post-vintage style, she is also set to front next months addition of British Vogue Magazine. Lana's astronomical rise to fame has not gone un-noticed in the fashion realm, her swaggeristic dress sense combined with her powerfully infatuating voice (and face!) leave us with one of the most talked about musicians of recent times. We here at OBWD approve avidly of Lana Del Rey, and are eagerly anticipating her next musical and fashion ventures. So what's your verdict?
