Lana Del Rey stars as herself for H&M

Update: the full set of Lana Del Rey’s campaign images have now been released. You can view them after the break.

Lana Del Rey may be on the books of major model agency Next, but there’s a difference between model and celebrity. Models are usually chameleons playing roles, celebrities are booked for their star power and influence. They’re asked to play the role of themselves.

Hence Del Rey (managed by Next’s ‘talent’ section along with the likes of Alexa Chung) in her new campaign for retailer H&M.

The first images to be released from the fall 2012 campaign show Lana Del Rey looking much in line with the starlet image she’s cultivated. H&M’s creative director Donald Schneider called it “very L.A. noir” and it comes complete with pastel colours, retro hair, and bling. All the things about Lana Del Rey that H&M knows will sell clothes.

Stay tuned for more, with another campaign coming in winter and a mini film titled ‘Blue Velvet’ to be released on hm.com on 19 September.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
