Manifest The Lana Del Rey You Want To Be With Her New Album


There’s no question Lana Del Rey has become one of the primary style icons of our generation. Throughout her eight-year-reign and style evolution, her commitment to Americana nostalgia has never wavered, and it looks as though her new era, that of album Norman Fucking Rockwell, will be no different.

The album’s cover dropped yesterday, with an accompanying announcement that it will be released on all platforms come August 30. In the comic-book-inspired image, Del Rey appears in nautical glory, hair brushed back with her signature hoops waving in the wind. In celebration, we’ve rounded up the best of the songstress’ style and the key components to recreating each look to correspond with each of NFR’‘s tracks. Embrace your inner LDR below, and mentally prepare yourself for the end of August.

 

1. “Norman Fucking Rockwell”

Norman Rockwell was famous for his illustrations of everyday post-World War II America, and there’s no question this Lana embodies the ’50s depiction of beauty. To recreate this aesthetic, you’re going to need a damn good eyeliner.

2. “Mariners Apartment Complex”

Nothing says nostalgia for my less-than-dream-like apartment like Del Rey’s DIY visual for “Video Games.” Evidently shot on webcam or even Fujifilm digital camera and heavily filtered, this “glamorously chilling at home” look launched her career.

5. “Doin’ Time”

Nothing says “badass” like a racing jacket. In fact, we wrote an entire tribute to Lana Del Rey’s love for the style. In short: you need one.

6. “Love Song”

If this doesn’t deliver pre-medieval Juliet vibes, I’m not sure what will. A romantic pixie dream girl, this frilly little frock says “love me and I’ll do the same,” in every pleat.

7. “Cinnamon Girl”

Saucy, sweet, and unapologetic, this look is “Cinnamon Girl” personified. Throw on a ’50s collegiate angora sweater for fall, and you’ll have all of the “A Single Man” energy Del Rey exudes.

11. “The Greatest”

Lana Del Rey’s greatest look of all time is arguably the flower crown — which may just be making a comeback. But if you’re going to go for it, go a little subtler.

14. “Hope Is A Dangerous Thing For A Women Like Me To Have – But I Have It”

No one loves a biblical reference like Del Rey, and we all know “hope” and faith go hand-in-hand. Urban-inspired angel might as well be her Raya bio. If you want to emulate the aesthetic, all you need is the purity of a ’70s-esque goddess dress.
