We couldn’t be more excited to reveal that Lana Del Rey is British Vogue’s March 2012 cover girl, posing prettily for photography legend Mario Testino in a gorgeous Louis Vuitton outfit.
We should have known that the fashion bible had snapped up THE biggest rising talent of the year so far for the all-important March issue, yet we had no idea – hence our excited but very surprised reaction when we first found out.
We love the soft, elegant and feminine vibe the issue initially gave off, which plays to Lana’s femininity beautifully. We would have thought that, as a self-branded “gangster Nancy Sinatra”, her cover would have been slightly edgier, but we honestly can’t fault British Vogue’s vision.
Despite our earlier gushing, we think Vogue should have chosen any of the editorial pictures below for the cover instead, but that’s the only critique we can give. Cannot wait to get our hands on this!
Kudos to Alexandra Shulman and Mario Testino!
