How many of you are obsessed with the Lana Del Rey for H&M Fall campaign, and with Lana in general? I must admit, I was a bit of a Lana hater a few month ago. I openly mocked her SNL performance, and dismissed her music as drivel. Well, I suppose I drank the Lana Kool-Aid, because I am now simply in love with her style and her sultry voice.
I gasped with joy when I saw her ad spots for the Fall H&M collection. I am obsessed with the early 60s vibe, and love the David Lynch/Twin Peaks references of the "Blue Velvet" TV spot. Here are some images from the collection:

There is no H&M near me that I know of, and H&M still hasn't launched their online shopping for the US. So, I've basically given up any hope of owning this collection (the prices on eBay are insane). Not that I could have actually fit into any of these looks, since this line stops at an XL, and I am a 2X. But, I am sure I would have tried to rock the angora sweaters regardless.
Oh, and if anyone knows of a good bouffant hair tutorial for this look, please pass it my way!
Here is Lana in the TV spot singing Blue Velvet.
....and here is Lana singing Video Games, the song I mocked so harshly, but now love.
