Now that’ll sell some magazines! Pop singer Lana Del Rey was selected as Woman of the Year for the British version of GQ magazine and was rewarded with her very own racy nude cover.
Here’s the summary for why the mag chose Del Rey:
Having provoked equal amounts of debate and outrage throughout an incredible year, she fulfills one of the key requirements for any good pop star: she gets talked about. Following the all-conquering “Video Games” and her number one debut album Born To Die, Del Rey signed to NEXT models, wrote the best song on Cheryl Cole’s last album, teamed up with ASAP Rocky and has acted as a muse and model to Mulberry, Jaguar and H&M. Truly 2013 is hers for the taking.
While the provocative shooting star was seen with dark hair at the event, the shoot features her tradition auburn hue.
The 26-year-old formerly known as Lizzy Grant looks sultry and I should admit she’s not completely naked as she is sporting matching sapphire and diamond jewelry. While that cover is enough to get a pulse racing Lana Del Rey told a crowd upon receiving the award that there’s more in store between the pages (as evidenced above and below):
“Paul, the creative director, was very hands on with the shoot. In fact, if you see in the magazine – in the middle of the spread – you’ll see a hand hoisting up one of my b00bs. That’s Paul’s hand. Couldn’t have done it without him.”
Sometimes I just wanna be that guy you know?
The October edition featuring Lana Del Rey is out today.
