Lana Del Rey by Mario Testino for Vogue

 Lana Del Rey is making the Vogue cover, which is obviously a pretty big deal for the up- and coming singer. The March 2012 issue of Vogue UK will feature Del Rey in Louis Vuitton on the cover, along with a full shoot inside the issue by Mario Testino.  - courtesy of Highsnobiety

T by Alexander Wang Spring 2012 Campaign Featuring Die Antwoord

Yesterday, I presented the crazy new music video by South African hip-hop band Die Antwoord for their song ‘I Fink U Freeky’ and today Alexander Wang unveiled his new T by Alexander Wang campaign featuring the band.
Not only were they included into the print campaign, but they also play a major role in the video that was released along with the campaign.
“His T by Alexander Wang campaign was shot by Dan Jackson, and ubercool South African hip-hop band Die Antwoord was flown in to appear in the images and two videos; a behind-the-scenes clip and the official campaign with “Fatty Boom Boom” from Die Antwoord’s new album “Ten$ion” playing. Later this month, MTV will put both videos in rotation on “120 Minutes.” “I am part of a generation that grew up with MTV, and obviously with music, and having it all work together made it a really fun project,” Wang said.” (Via WWD)

Watch the video featuring Die Antwoord here below.

Hoorey! for Lana Del Rey

A more interesting challenge to the challenge of being a female singer in the Year of Our Lord 2012 is being mustered by Lizzy Grant, whose debut CD as Lana Del Rey, Born to Die, comes out this month. Like Florence Welch, she has red hair, though she was once blond. Indeed, in her first single as Lana Del Rey, 2010's "Gramma," she confesses to her grandmother what sets her apart: first, that she's pretty, and second, that she wants to be "the whole world's girl." She's as ambitious as Gaga herself and about as authentic; though almost freakishly beautiful, she looks like the spawn of a postoperative Nicole Kidman; and her lips — not just plumped, Bratz-style, but flat, as if she's pressing them against a window — are already more famous on the Internet than her music.

And yet it's her music that makes her interesting, because almost alone of the women who've made a conscious choice to sing from the impersonal vantage of celebrity, she uses the impersonal vantage of celebrity to make music that's personal in the extreme. Her voice is not agile and overwhelming like Florence Welch's; nor is it as aerobic as BeyoncĂ©'s or Gaga's; nor is it desultory and small, with a dollop of cuteness, like Feist's or St. Vincent's. It's low and dark, with a threatened upper register that conveys rather than sheds its emotional burdens. It makes whatever she's singing sound a little like the songs David Lynch and Angelo Badalamenti wrote for Julee Cruise back in the Twin Peaks days, but those songs were about the atmospherics, and Lizzy Grant's are about whatever led her to create the entity known as Lana Del Rey. It's a different kind of becoming, at once mysterious and transparent, and if you want to see it in motion, go to YouTube and compare an early performance of "Born to Die" with a recent one at, yes, the Chateau Marmont. In the first, she's wearing a white dress that's too tight and too short, and she starts the song the way she does on the record, with a breathy wink-and-titter "Who me?" In the second, she's representing a high-end fashion house, and she's singing to a crowd that supposedly includes the likes of Kate Bosworth and Juno Temple. Pretty girls all, they no doubt thought that this pretty girl was singing about them; but really she was singing about herself, for herself, with a name that no real human being has ever had, and a fat lip that, for one moment at least, she seemed to have come by honestly.

Here's the official music video! Enjoy! I love her album a lot!

I Fink U Freeky by Die Antwoord

This video for Die Antwoord’s ‘I Fink U Freeky’ is pretty mind-blowing. The duo got together with the amazing Roger Ballen and the end result is a brilliant intersection of music and art. This is a must watch whether your’re a fan of the group or not.

Your so freeky! ;p

Louis Vuitton Birdie Sneaker

For Spring/Summer 2012 Louis Vuitton has released the new Birdie low top sneaker. Produced with a premium suede calf leather upper, the boat shoe style sneaker comes with a removable inner sock, hand stitched vamp and rubber outer sole. The silhouette reminds us of some older visvim styles and certainly mashes up more than one popular sneaker style. It comes in two colorways and is now available from Louis Vuitton stores.

So guys?! D'you like it?
