Lana Del Rey in London

Posted on June 26, 2012

We canNOT with that hair.

 

Lana Del Rey out and about in London wearing a Sandro pleated top paired with G-Star’s Midge Skinny jeans and her Mulberry bag.

Sandro Spring 2012 Collection

But whatever; it’s her thing now, we suppose. Looks terrible with her bone structure, but then again, so did Winehouse’s hair and she’s clearly making a play to fill the spot.

The cross is a both a huge cliche and kind of obnoxious, but everything else about her outfit is super-cute, we have to say. Kind of a shame she had to ruin it with that smacked-ass styling.

And sweetie, you can forget about getting any more free bags if you can’t remember to show the photographers the label. Come now. Must we teach you everything?

      Atomic powered hair is a NO!

      I remember the urban legend of my childhood about beehive hair and spiders….

      She certainly can’t sing, so running around in Amy Winehouse drag is all she’s got.

      • http://www.facebook.com/izzzyy Dixie Murphy Ross

         preach it!

        I look at her and, much like when I looked at Winehouse, went “not-so-hot mess.” However, Amy had the pipes to back up her crazy.

        • TieDye64

          TRUE

      • http://twitter.com/luqluqe LuqeMann

        Winehouse: Oh girl, that’s totally a NO, NO, NO.

      • lovelyivy

        Exactly right. Say what you will about Winehouse, but her talent was in direct proportion to all her crazy- she could wear whatever the hell she wanted to because that voice blew everyone away. I know opinions vary a great deal on Lana Del Ray, but in all honesty even her fans can’t say that she has anything close to the ability that Amy Winehouse was blessed with.

        ETA: Of course LDR also seems much healthier and well-adjusted than Amy Winehouse in every way, so maybe the not having to deal with anything like Winehouse’s talent is a plus.

        • MilaXX

           I’ve seen a few pics that give evidence to the fact that LDR has been “overserved” quite a few times.

        • Sartorial_She

           Nothing healthy and well-adjusted about inflating your lips like that…

        • http://twitter.com/tymczasowa its complicated

           well. even if LDR’s voice doesnt blow everyone away, she still can wear whatever the hell she wants. as everyone does. isnt it nice?

          • lovelyivy

            Of course she CAN, but it doesn’t mean that she should, since it is (as noted by TLo) dreadful.

    • nannypoo

      She is the absolute worst. Amy Winehouse, for all her flaws, had talent. This woman is just a fame whore.

      • JasmineAM

        YES! Everything I was gonna say, you said it.

      I dig it.

    • Sobaika

      The higher the hair the closer to god.

      Somehow I don’t think that’s the look she was going for.

      • formerlyAnon

         Right? I kinda expect her to run off to change into a knee length skirt so she can make it to her Bible study group on time.

        • Little_Olive

          And with those sneakers? Looks all over the place more than owning the place. 

          Really, what is that, a Stepford Wife gone bad?

      • http://profiles.google.com/sara.e.munoz Sara Munoz

        IDK, she’s wearing TWO crosses. She’s extra extra close to god.

    • kittenwithaquip

      The hair and the shoes cancel out everything in between.

      • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

        Exactly!

      • Glammie

        Yep.  I actually hate the sneakers even more than the hair.  With the pants line it makes her ankles look humongous.  Why on earth would you put such a fat sneaker on?  Oh, the unbuttoned, then askew blouse is also iffy for me, but I can live with it–provided that somebody dumps a bucket on her hair and runs off with the shoes.

    • wisenhar

      I think my grandma had those same shoes.

      • lordandtaylor

        Ha! All our grandmothers have those shoes!

        • tired_mommy

          My grandmother had cuter shoes than those–this entire look is FUG!

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=790818401 Laurie Landry

      Someone sure wishes that they were Amy Winehouse now don’t they?

    • Lilithcat

      In the last photo, the guy on her left who is obviously thinking, “What the hell is that?” echoes my sentiments perfectly.

      • lordandtaylor

        Now he is cute. Can we photoshop Lana out of the pic?

      • gabbilevy

        My thought was: That guy in the last picture clearly doesn’t get her either.

      • http://profiles.google.com/sara.e.munoz Sara Munoz

        Why is he pulling at his neck skin? Clearly trying to photobomb this thing.

    • http://twitter.com/msjwatt J.Watt

      I guess I just don’t understand who she is or why it matters…I don’t mean to sound harsh, but when did she become a thing? 

      • http://twitter.com/cornekopia Shawn EH

        After the infamous SNL appearance, and before David Letterman sprang to her rescue.

      ” We canNOT with that hair.”
      At least it’s just the hair for you guys. I cannot with her in general.

    • Judy_J

      Besides the bad hair, that blouse looks wonky on her.  She should have buttoned it up as shown on the model. In that last photo, her head looks like it was badly photoshopped onto her body.

    • call_me_schmeg

      lana does priscilla. gah.

    • MK03

      I cannot with…everything.

      • kimmeister

        Yes, I hate absolutely everything about this look.  Those shoes, in particular, look like orthopedic shoes. 

    • stardust462

      I’m very curious as to what product she’s using to keep her hair up like that.

      • schadenfreudelicious

        Four cans of Aquanet??

      • Sobaika

        Industrial size bumpit? It’s probably a wig.

      • Sara__B

         My sisters ratted (back-combed) their hair and used a ton of Aquanet. I still can’t stand the smell of hairspray.

    • lordandtaylor

      HA. Thanks I needed a good laugh today. Just getting over the flu. In the lasty pic, I love how here head does not look centered on her shoulders. Very scary indeed. The model looks super cute. Lana? Not so much.

    • http://asskickingadviser.com/ Ass Kicking Adviser

      It’s so incongruous. Her outfit looks easy-chic, very , ‘I have to step out to the pharmacy.’ Her hair is looking for a ball gown. 

      • formerlyAnon

         Not just any ball gown. One that Nancy Reagan might have approved.

        • Little_Olive

          If she was throwing it to welcome the aliens :p

    • kikisayshi

      I don’t know if it’s the top or her hair, but in these photos it looks as if her head was placed on someone else’s body.

    • http://twitter.com/suryasnair suryasnair

      her lip looks plastic surgeried. Total look is 60’s sci-fi.

    • formerlyAnon

      I kinda like the hair – if you gotta have a gimmick (and as we all know, “Kid, you gotta have a gimmick, if you want to get ahead”) I’d rather it was kinda out there than a half-way measure. I like the hair better than say, the giant cross. Which was old and tired about the time this one was born, I think.

      And, to be completely contrary, even though they work with the look, I hate the shoes soooo much. Basically, love the top, like the hair/makeup/schtick, meh pants, “please, no” cross & run screaming from those shoes.

    • Ozski

      Agree with all of the Commentariat here: only three people can carry this look: Cindy Wilson, Kate Pierson & Amy Winehouse. Why? Because they were super-talented and in on the gimmick. LDR always strikes me as humorless and with thin vocal talents. Feh.

      • Perigee

        Although I agree with you on where the talent lies, talent has nothing to do with why the hair looked good on one singer and bad on another.  Cindy Wilson and Katie Pierson wear it full-on retro, without attempting to apply the look to modern styles.  There hair is, in effect, costuming.  Therefore, the hair works in the context of their style.  Amy Winehouse pulled off the hair without being as costume-y for two reasons.  First, she never wore it super polished, movie-star style, as Lana is here.  Amy was rocking more of a sexy greaser look then a Brigitte Bardot.  Second, Amy was not conventionally pretty.  She had interesting features, she was distinctive  looking, but she wasn’t pretty-pretty.  There was no pretty for the hair to compete with, it could be the main feature.  It looks terrible on Lana, who tries to make the big hair part of her polished pretty.  Pretty with an edge of hip drama is her thing.  Amy’s thing was wild, intense, retro-low-class drama.    Big hair works better with the latter than with the former.
        That said, I love Lana’s top.  Styling does suck rocks.

      It’s like Octomom and Lisa Marie’s character from Mars Attacks had a baby.

    • mellorcr

      I know the hair sucks, but the worst of it is that it reinforces the way this outfit gives her such hideous proportions.  She looks like a giant head on top of a giant square-block torso, that someone hammerd down onto her legs so hard they squished down to only 18″ long.  This is an outfit that require model-like proprations and posing skill to carry off.

      • NC_Meg

        Seriously. That last picture is like an optical illusion with the big head/hair and the shirt all askew.

    • portlandmermaid

      Lisa Marie in Mars Attack. Watch out if she starts swaying her arms.

    • MilaXX

      I can’t with the orange bra showing. 

    • merciblahblah

      I have a visceral reaction to her the same way I do with Katherine Heigel. I. Cannot. STAND. this woman. No no no no no no HELL to the no. Hate her hair, hate her stupid shoes, hate this entire look. But let me tell you how I REALLY feel….

      Trout mouth!

    • Melissa Brogan

      Ick.

      edit: well, okay, the outfit by itself is cute. the overall picture, though: ick.

    • janetjb

      Her shoes are as hideous as her hair

    • PeggyOC

      The top is cute, but the mom-jean capris and the granny sneakers are hideous.  And the less we speak of the hair the better.
       

    • susu11

      Yeesh Priscilla Presley hair on crack…

      She is really stretching out that 15 minutes of fame isn’t she?

    • alyce1213

      Super-cute?  Just no.  Maybe the top without the orange bra — but those jeans and shoes are as hiddy as the hair and makeup.

      She’s totally artificial and seems not to know it.

      • http://twitter.com/noshadejustT Tea

        I think the edge of the sleeves on the top are orange. I also think the last picture makes her head look like it doesn’t match up with her neck. Artificial indeed. 

        • alyce1213

          Oh I see, it is attached to the blouse.  d’oh.  Still hate her.

    • EEKstl

      Really? She just continues to annoy the hell out of me.

    • deathandthestrawberry

      Between Blake Lively and Lana Del Rey, you’ve hit 2 for 2 on my irrational hate list. All before noon! Hey, what’s Gwyneth Paltrow wearing today?

      I kid. Cute top, but I would have worn it with a tank not a bra. I also think the shoes are super cute.

    • introspective

      Shes serving up people of Walmart here rather than the “funky artist” thing she (or her gays) thought they were doing. Everyones also noted the tiredness of the winehouse nod given her low grade of talent.

      Overall: yawn. Bye.

    • Call me Bee

      Wow no kidding.  I wanted to see the bag! 
      Anyway–I thought Amy Winehouse had the perfect thin face and high cheekbones for a beehive (albiet she got her thin face and perfect cheekbones from drug use…)  It looks silly on this girl. 
      Comb your hair, and leave the beehives to Tippi Hedron and Joanna Lumley. 

    • NurseEllen

      I hate sneakers.  I hate them in the gym, although I concede their necessity.  I particularly hate them outside the gym.  In fact, I hate sneakers so much that I hardly even notice the Bride of Frankenstein hairdo.

    • Clueless_Jock

      She looks like Imelda.

    • http://phantomminuet.blogspot.com/ MinAgain

      I’m not crazy about the shoes, either, but the hair is the worst.  That top, OTOH, is adorable, and I want it.

    • SapphoPoet

      She must have ten cans of Aqua-Net on her hair. 

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_NMLK23QK6C7NMLMVVYA5POXKJY WhiteMage

      really? you guys like the ugly, off kilter shirt and the chunky, aerobic style sketchers? yuck to the whole thing.

    • marilyn

      She should not be wearing the top with jeans.  The runway model wears pastel pants with it, and it looks like resort wear.  Dark pants and running shoes make it jail clothes.  My first impression from the top photo is that she should be wearing handcuffs because she was being escorted by deputies.  I assume that was the look she was going for.  This is a mismatched mess, not a fashion statement.

    • http://frankbettecenter.org/ sleah_in_norcal

      HOLY HUMONGOUS HAIR HIVE!!!  run for your lives!!

    • Peeve

      Sorry, but I took one look and burst out laughing. I don’t like any of this outfit, hair, etc. Fug! The white top slips around on her shoulders and looks like a trash bag with armholes cut out. Very sloppy looking. But the HAIR! Dear God! Now, that IS funny!

    • Eclectic Mayhem

      You know that thing I said about if I can’t say anything nice, I won’t say anything at all?

      That.

    • kingderella

      hair and make-up are ridiculous. it can work in videos, stage, or shoots, but not on the street.

      top is cute, although im not 100% sure it fits her.

      the shoes are TERRIBLE!

      all in all, not a good look, dear. 

    • Larkin21

      Looks like she’s wearing the shirt with the hanger still on. The model doesn’t have the same effect happening so I’m not sure what the deal is.

    • hac51

      Winehouse hair, huh?  What other pop trademarks can she rip off next?  A single rhinestone glove?

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_BARN2K234KUKPF5RACXYEFZ4HI Maggie

      This is not Amy Winehouse drag, it’s Priscilla Presley drag. And I hate those shoes.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jessica-TallGirl-Freeman/1043623567 Jessica TallGirl Freeman

      I really like the models’ look.  Fresh and summery.  Lana looks like a train wreck.  And agreed, with that hair, I just can’t. 

    • shopgirl716

      still don’t know who this woman is.  And I can’t be bothered to find out. Add another wiglet and you’d have Priscilla when she married Elvis.

    • butterflysunita

      I kind of love that she’s wearing tennis shoes, though.  And carrying them off–they work with the outfit.  I’ll leave it at that and not speak of the hair.  

    • http://twitter.com/cornekopia Shawn EH

      I dunno, I kind of love her. She’s such a deer in headlights. She’s all her own kind of crazy.

      ’60s sci-fi fembot, but without the cool or whimsy.  actual factory fembot.  nice top, though.

      Why does this child want to look 15 years older than she is??

    • another_laura

      oh my god nonononono to the whole thing.  yech!

    • TieDye64

      The top on it’s own and in a smaller size is very cute. The cross looks silly. Shoes are kinda’ fun. I WANT TO SHAVE HER FREAKING HEAD! Sorry. I’m done shouting now. If you’re going make an attempt at Winehouse 2.0 you first need to get some effing talent. 

    • librarygrrl64

      Jesus, how old is this girl? She’s aging herself with this look.

    • guest2visits

      The hair is part of the street show; it’s the shoes that don’t seem to work with this ensemble. Should’ve stuck with the model’s.

    • IMNAngryLiberal

      The hair and makeup are tragic, but I think the rest of the outfit is cute.  I don’t know who this person is — I’m used to that when talking with my daughter, but it is sad when I run into that here.

    • http://twitter.com/solastalgic Ayman Itani

      The hair isn’t great (she needs to… deflate it), but I love her. I dunno, people write her off really quickly when her music is actually pretty good. Oh well.

    • http://twitter.com/alienspouse Jen Alien-Spouse

      It must just be the way the top hangs (or maybe it’s a photoshop disaster), but her head looks dislocated in that last photo.

    • j_anson

      Wait, what? That shirt looks like the crap Target sells when it wants to look with-it and cutting-edge, and the shoes are obnoxious. I guess the jeans are inoffensive?

      By unbuttoning the shirt, it looks like her head is attached to her body incorrectly.

    • Mirakel9

      Those platform sneakers are just STUPID, especially in the first picture, where you can really see what they look like. 

    • quiltrx

      The hair would be great in an editorial, but not so much walking down the street.  Cute tennies.

    • elzatelzabelz

      The hair and orthotic shoes- both a Hell, No!

    • HobbitGirl

      The hair is just hideous, but I don’t like that top, either. It looks like maternity wear. Does nothing for her shape at all, and that’s pretty much all she’s got to work, IMO.

    • cleep1000

      WHY??????????????

    • Candigirl1968

      It’s sad to see someone try as hard as she is.  Leave the statement looks to folks who can pull them off and do so without looking like they are straining from the effort.  And it just reinforces how lame Mulberry was to name a bag after her.  

    • jw_ny

      unfortunately gimmicks get media attention…regardless of talent (which I know nothing about hers one way or the other)

    • Pennymac

      How many cans of Aquanet were emptied in the making of that do?

    • SophieCollier

      No, sneakers with mid-calf capris is so dorky.  Not cute dorky, but “Mom trying to be hip” dorky.  And her shirt looks like it’s trying to slide off.   She really looks hugely stupid, actually.  

    • zbkat

      Valley of the Dolls hair. Change your name to Neely, sister, and this look will make sense.

    • Susan Crawford

      The only woman in history who could really rock this ginormous beehive was the great Veruschka, who looked like a raging lioness. Poor Lana looks as though her head is shaped like an eggplant.

      However, props to her for a terrific outfit: from the filmy, flowy top, to the skinny pants to the cool platform creepers – VERY nice work.

    • LambeeBaby

      So poser. She is really trying too hard. I like the outfit on the model but the dark denim capris and the “Sketchers” sneakers just weigh down the look.

    • mhleta
