Singer/songwriter Lana Del Rey, real name Elizabeth Grant, first came to our attention in 2011 when she released hit single Video Game. Lana was born in New York, and was later shipped off to a boarding school in Connecticut aged 14. Growing up, Lana lived on the wilder side of life, and found herself drinking a lot. However it was these lonely times that gave her the inspiration for many of the songs in her haunting album Born To Die.
As well as Lana’s soulful voice with a strong 1950’s influence she has also become something of a fashion icon. Her vintage style, auburn locks and red lips captured the fashion world when she sang at the Christopher Kane show, and she soon became the latest style icon after Alexa Chung to have an iconic Mulberry handbag named after her.
