PICS: Lana del Rey poses for H&M!

26-year-old Lana del Rey has had quite a year! Since dropping her debut album in January, the singer has shot into stardom.

The singer was picked by H&M to appear in their fall ads. The campaign, which launches in September, shows their new collection – which they hope will “inspire” their customers.

Chloe Bowers, H&M PR Manager, said: ‘We were looking for a style icon and singer to model our fall collection and Lana Del Rey was the perfect choice.

‘We think she shows our fall fashion in a very inspiring way.’

Lana will star in Press ads and a commercial for the brand, which reported a 20 per cent rise in quarterly profits following ‘very strong sales’ of its spring collection.

Director Johan Renck came up with the idea that Lana should record the song ‘Blue Velvet’ for the commercial.

The theme of the campaign is a modern and feminine woman with a soft attitude.

Curves and waist are important in autumn’s silhouette, with a focus on knitwear and tweed, the store says.

Colours include powder tones and accessories in wine red.

‘The mood is very LA noir,’ Donald Schneider, H&M’s creative director, told WWD.

I’m torn on these ads. I love the clothes, and even the pictures, but I’m not sure how I feel about Lana as the model. Ok, maybe it’s just her hair I’m not so sure about.

Check out this $1 million bra!

Birmingham Estate and Jewelry Buyers have created a bra worth over an estimated $1 million.

The bra is dripping in 500 carats of diamonds, and molded out of 18 carat gold. The bra took 40 workers almost a year to create.

The bra consists of all natural diamonds, with 750 grams of ‘solid gold’ according to the store’s owner, Anthony Aubry.

Victoria’s Secret debuted a $2.5 million bra last year, modeled by Miranda Kerr, but Aubry insists his bra can’t be compared to the VS one.

‘The difference between this bra and the Victoria’s Secret bras is the Victoria’s Secret bras have fabric in them and the diamonds are kind of imbedded into the fabric. This, there’s no fabric in it what so ever, it’s just solid gold,’ he told CBS.

However the extravagant bra, weighing nearly 1kg, has left many women confused.

Would anyone actually the item, or is it more of a showpiece?

Mr Aubry, who named the bra after his wife, Rita said: ‘If you just have that much money, someone would want it to say “Oh, I have a $1million bra,” or some people would put it on display at their house or something.

And some people, believe it or not, would actually want to wear it.’

Either way, whoever owns the lavish lingerie is sure to gain some attention.

Mr Aubry said: ‘We’ve had three different models wear this so far out in public at shows and it never fails to turn some heads.’
