Lana Del Rey leaves little to the imagination in her raciest photoshoot yet – for British GQ.
The singer, formerly known as Lizzy Grant, stripped down to her birthday suit for the October cover of the men’s magaznie.
The 26-year-old’s eyes hang on the camera, her trademark pout swathed in red lipstick and auburn curls tumbling down her shoulders in the shot, taken by photographer Mariano Vivanco.
Del Rey, accepting the GQ Woman of the Year Award in London last night, told the audience of her experience shooting with Vivanco in Monaco.
Introduced by Boy George, who kindly compared her sultry persona to that of Marilyn Monroe, she took the stage and thanked editors for bestowing her with the title.
Shifting on stage, she hummed, her words hanging with monotone expression: ‘We had a beautiful shoot in Monaco and I had a really interesting interview – for a change – and I was reminded of why I love to sing and why I wanted to become a writer.
‘And also,’ she continued, ‘Paul, the creative director, was very hands on with the shoot.’
As laughter rumbled through the audience, Del Rey made reference presumably to the British magazine’s creative director, Paul Solomons.
‘In fact, if you see in the magazine – in the middle of the spread – you’ll see a hand hoisting up one of my boobs,’ she added.
‘That’s Paul’s hand. Couldn’t have done it without him.’
The Men Of The Year issue of British GQ is out on September 6.
I’m ready for Lana to come out with a new album. I loved her last album, and I can’t wait to see what she does next!
