Inspiration Icon: Lana Del Rey

   Recalling the first time I’ve heard of Lana Del Rey about a year ago non of her-bee-stung-lips-impressions are striking through my thoughts. It was love from the first sight. But love with the kind of music she produces. I can even say that it was love with her inner world, as much as it can be felt through her creative work. If I’d heard some of her early recordings like “Sirens” (signed with nom de plumes – May Jailer) before Lana became famous I’d definitely like it and write about it. But it was between 2005- 2006 and I knew nothing about it back then. Now Lana Del Rey is a star and well-known all over the world. Lots of people heard her single-songs like Video Games, Born to Die, Blue Jeans and lately released Ride, but why still so many of them blame her for changing her face (lips extensions, e.t.c.) when she looks pretty? Does it really matter if that was what she needed to make her image compete? I think No, at least not for me.

  Lana’s music inspires, lures, gets under your skin. She’s gifted singer and songwriter. Her lyrics are girlish and autobiographic, but there’s a style and there’s deepness that I like the most. Not to talk of her voice that is a pure honey. And of course she’s such a beauty. Undoubtedly there always something can be found to criticize anyone, but that’s not what I’m writing about.

  Just a few days ago I’ve bought November issue of Tatler Russia with Lana on the cover. The photosession was by Ellen Von Unwerth so it was totally worth it. Initially it was done for August issue of Vogue Italia, but Tatler Russia published it only three months later to catch the eye of the readers.
 While enjoying the beautiful photos of Lana in designer clothes (by Dolce & Gabbana, Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel, Gucci, Dior, Moschino, Blumarine, & Valentino) and perfect make-up by Stephanie Kunz, my eyes suddenly stopped on some lines from the text (written by Leonardo Clausi) where Lana confesses that she adores Bruce Springsteen’s “I’m on fire” song and fantastic dolls from Mark Ryden’s paintings. I was stunned for a moment cause it was so much like “me”. Now I know: we got some more things in common.

 Earlier in October 2012 Lana’s new music video called “Ride” (a single from upcoming on November 12th “Born to Die: Paradise Edition” album) was released.
 Actually it’s more of short-film kind lasting about 10 minutes and telling us a story of an unusual girl with a soul of a poet and nostalgia for “the country America used to be”, who gave it all for a freedom that she found on an open road. This breathtaking video was shot in the desert of Nevada by director Anthony Mandler. Watching “Ride” I’ve came to thought that all those Lana’s videos that has a plot shows us a ‘good’ girl with some dark and strange passion for destructive forces. She’s looking for “other” life – full of poetry, beauty and challenge – and that life is always neighboring with death.

Lately Lana Del Rey’ve hit the covers of such magazines as Vogue UK (March 2012), Vogue Japan (July 2012), Vogue Italia (August 2012), Vogue Australia (October 2012) and landed the title of GQ's Woman of the Year.
