lana del rey is no stranger to controversy. often critiqued for her polished and perfected persona, lana del rey is perceived by some as a recipe for a pop superstar. a recipe that was the vision of execs and questioned for its authenticity. rising to recognition largely by a cult following via videos and songs on the internet, this beauty has worked her way into being a house hold name. love her or hate her, it is pretty undeniable that she is a timeless beauty. the camera loves her. face it, lana del rey is a talented, sexy, and intriguingly mysterious woman. it's hard not to be lured in by her smokey vocals and pouty red lips. even for a skeptic such as myself.
