Brand New Woman

Lana Del Rey is back, and feel­ing happy

ELLE (Malaysia) - - BEHIND THE COVER -

If in years past Lana Del Rey was the dreamy-eyed best friend to her fans, con­sol­ing them through heart­break, ca­jol­ing them into ad­ven­tures, the 2017 Lana reads more like a know­ing older sis­ter. On her new al­bum, Lust for Life, she ad­vo­cates ap­pre­ci­at­ing ev­ery ro­mance, and cel­e­brat­ing the joys of be­ing alive – a 180° turn from her de­but al­bum Born

To Die. She even smiles on the cover. And in our cover story Lana shares a sur­pris­ing new truth: hap­pi­ness is now the only thing that mat­ters to her.

Style-wise, the New Yorker has al­ways favoured a rose-tinted retro look, em­brac­ing swingy ’50s sun­dresses, thigh-skim­ming Mod frocks and ’70s-style prairie dresses, all ac­cented with her sig­na­ture cat-eye and pil­lowy lips. On the red car­pet she di­als it up in floor-length gowns by the likes of Al­tuzarra and Vivienne West­wood, with the oc­ca­sional vin­tage piece thrown in. As for the ar­rest­ing gaze and poise – that’s all Lana. Whether coy or con­fi­dent, happy or sad, Lana Del Rey rep­re­sents the free­dom to be who­ever you want to be. No apolo­gies nec­es­sary.
