Lana Del Ray rocks a floral Gucci dress on the cover of Vogue Australia’s October 2012 issue, on newsstands September 5.
Here is what the 26-year-old singer had to share with the magazine:
On having stage fright during live performances: “I love to take care of the songs – that’s my natural place – then, when I get on stage that’s not my elements. Sometimes I kneel down because I am trembling or touch the audience because I don’t know what else to do. But the nice thing about the kids is that they feel bad for me, and pass me soft toys!”
On how her fashion sense has evolved: “I never expressed myself through fashion. I loved flowers in my hair, I loved guys who wore leather, but I didn’t get creative… From the age of about seven I had really specific tastes that never changed. I loved wearing white, old fur and gold. It’s funny because now people in fashion kind of came to my rescue when other people said they didn’t like the record but that was unexpected for me because I was never really that. I wear lots of white and blue shirts from Brooks Brothers and shorts when I’m in LA, and I wear this white cotton sundress every day when no-one’s looking at me. I think it’s Topshop.”
On not having anymore material to write: “I said everything I needed to say before I wrote this record. I don’t even talk that much. God, talking in interviews is the most I’ve talked in years.”
