UK GQ October 2012 : Lana Del Rey by Mariano Vivanco
On the smash hit "Video Games", GQ's Woman Of The Year sings, "I heard that you like the bad girls / honey is that true?" The artist formerly known as Lizzy Grant certainly got that right - and we're not the only ones. The year's most talked about female artist dropped on 2012 like - appropriately enough - a sultry, flame-haired bombshell. After becoming an internet sensation in late 2011, Del Rey released "Born To Die" in January, shooting to number one and earning both an Ivor Novello and an International Breakthrough award at this year's Brits. Now, Del Rey speaks out in the October issue of GQ on her remarkable reinvention, being sent to boarding school to "get sober", the rabid fans and the misguided haters - and strips off for photographer Mariano Vivanco in her sexiest shoot yet.
The Men Of The Year issue of British GQ is out on 6 September 2012. British GQ is also available on the iPad.
