Lana Del Rey purchased her outfit for the 2020 Grammy Awards during a trip to the mall.

The Video Games hitmaker, who was nominated for two prizes at the annual music event held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday night, walked the red carpet alongside her new boyfriend, Live PD star Sean Larkin.

Lana looked stunning in a silver beaded gown with a vintage vibe, but during an interview with Entertainment Tonight, she admitted she had picked up the number at the “last minute”.

“(I purchased it) at the mall. I saw this, and I loved it,” she commented, though didn’t divulge the brand or exactly where she spotted it. “This is a last-minute dress, but I love it.”

The reporter then went on to note that the colour of Lana’s dress matched Sean’s silver hair, to which she replied, “Yeah, it’s very cool.”

Elsewhere in the chat, the 34-year-old noted that she had the gown altered to her shape before she stepped out at the star-studded bash.

“I tailored it right there,” said Lana, before gesturing to her waist area. “So, you know, a little mix and match. … We’re making it all work.”

Lana’s hair was styled into a chic updo by Sheridan Ward, while make-up artist Pamela Cochrane ramped up the retro feel of her ensemble by giving her dewy skin and dramatic winged eye make-up. The beauty pro used the Ultimate Taupe and Statuesque eyeshadow shades from Pat McGrath Labs on the star’s lids, before FetishEyes Mascara on her lashes. She also applied Lip Fetish Lip Balm to the lips and added a touch of colour with the Permagel Ultra Lip Pencil in Buff, a warm nude.

Lana Del Rey has recorded a cover of Donovan’s Season of the Witch for new horror Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.

The Born to Die hitmaker has covered the 1966 song for the film, which is set in 1968 and follows a group of teenagers who must face their fears in order to save their lives.

Debuting the tune in a new trailer for the horror on social media, Del Rey wrote, “Ooooh (ghost emoji) I’m really excited for you to see this amazing movie! SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK @scarystoriesmovie And I’ve got a new spooky cover in there for ya of Season Of The Witch It’s in theatres this Friday produced by Guillermo del Toro and Director, Andre Ovredal!!! Song produced by Jack Antonoff.”

In a statement, the Pan’s Labyrinth and The Shape of Water filmmaker, who is producing the film, heaped praise on the 34-year-old.

“I have admired Lana’s music for a while now and felt in my gut that she would run with Season of the Witch – that she would use her alchemy to transform it,” the Oscar winner said. “She is a great artist and has been an amazing partner with us in this adventure. It is an honour for me to have met her.”

The singer will also join del Toro when he is honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame star on Wednesday.

This isn’t the only time Del Rey will feature on a 2019 movie soundtrack – she has teamed up with Miley Cyrus and Ariana Grande to record a collaboration for the upcoming Charlie’s Angels reboot too.

Season of the Witch has been covered a number of times for the screen, with appearances in Riverdale, American Horror Story, and True Blood. It currently appears in the trailer for Maleficent: Mistress of Evil.

Miley Cyrus, Ariana Grande and Lana Del Rey have seemingly teamed up to create a song for the Charlie’s Angels reboot.

All three popstars teased fans about the collaboration by releasing a 14-second video on social media on Wednesday, which simply featured the logo of the upcoming movie and the word, “Uploading…”

“Trailer tomorrow @charliesangels,” the 26-year-old Sweetener hitmaker wrote, tagging the official Charlie’s Angels Twitter account and Lana, seemingly hinting that the trio have collaborated on a song for the soundtrack.

Miley also shared the short video, writing, “WE ARE COMING!” and also tagged the 34-year-old Summertime Sadness star, who followed suit.

The film, which is set for release in November, will star Twilight actress Kristen Stewart and Brits Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska as the crime-fighting trio, with Patrick Stewart, Elizabeth Banks and Djimon Hounsou all playing different versions of Bosley, who is the employee of the mysterious Charlie.

Noah Centineo and Sam Claflin are also onboard, with The Hunger Games star Elizabeth also directing the reboot.

This isn’t the first time that Miley and Ariana have teamed up on a music project. Back in 2017, the Wrecking Ball hitmaker joined Ariana for the One Love Manchester benefit concert, following the horrifying terror attack at Ariana’s Manchester Arena gig.

The first Charlie’s Angels movie in 2000, starring Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu, featured Independent Women by Destiny’s Child on the soundtrack, while the 2003 sequel, Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle, included Pink and her hit track, Feel Good Time.

Jared Leto has a new appreciation for scents after headlining Gucci campaign

Jared Leto has grown to appreciate scents since signing on as the face of Gucci fragrances.

The actor, who became an ambassador for the brand in 2016, recently fronted a new campaign for Gucci Guilty Pour Homme and Gucci Guilty Pour Femme alongside singer Lana Del Rey, and he admits the venture has gifted him a new cologne obsession.

“It wasn’t really on my radar,” he tells the Los Angeles Times. “I used to think I didn’t like colognes or perfumes, but it turned out I just didn’t like bad ones. Fragrances are like movies or paintings. There are good ones that make you say, ‘I want that in my life more often’.”

Leto has since developed a nose for scents, preferring “the more woodsy, darker and muskier notes” – and the smell of chocolate.

“I actually got into (scents) because I was involved with a chocolate company, and chocolate has notes like wine,” he adds. “It’s incredible how a different bean can have a different flavour and smell to it…”

The Oscar winner is an investor in the Mast Brothers chocolate company.

Meanwhile, Jared’s relationship with Gucci creatives has prompted the actor and rocker to develop a new approach to his often colourful fashion choices. Though he doesn’t officially rely on a stylist to pick out his wardrobe, he does lean on Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele for advice.

“Alessandro is my over-qualified, highly-talented stylist,” he smiles. “We’re just of a very similar age and disposition. We love our work. We love to work hard. We both like to make things. We’re both really creative people. So there’s some common ground there. The work (with him) is just sort of a bonus.

“He’s like me, in that he takes great risks and is ambitious in his work, but in his personal life he kind of appreciates the simple things.”

Gucci’s Alessandro Michele doesn’t look to ‘impress’ with his designs

Alessandro Michele doesn’t actively try to “impress” others with his designs for Gucci.

The Italian fashion designer was appointed as creative director of the luxury house in 2015 and has since gone on win praise for his complete overhaul of the company’s collections and image.

But he has now recalled that he wasn’t seeking to show-off when he was first asked to interview for the role by chief executive officer Marco Bizzarri and then create a menswear line in show as part of the fall 2015 season.

“Somebody gave me the chance to do something beautiful, and when you are working on something beautiful, you don’t feel the pressure,” he told The New York Times. “I work to create something that is in my brain, and I don’t feel like I have to impress people outside.”

Previously, Michele worked for Fendi and in various positions in the Gucci design department after being hired by Tom Ford at the brand in 2002. His collections have featured eclectic combinations, pop culture references as well as lots of bird and flower motifs, and the designer explained that he is always looking to push the boundaries of taste.

“Beauty doesn’t have limits. It doesn’t have rules,” the 46-year-old said. “(When I took over at Gucci) fashion was talking about something that didn’t exist anymore, this kind of posh world of beautiful legs and beautiful hair. I was just talking about humanity. I was trying to find a new energy in the street, not in the jet set.”

At Gucci, Michele has formed key relationships with stars including Harry Styles, Florence Welch, Lana Del Rey and Jared Leto. He is also overseeing the costumes for Elton John’s farewell tour, with the iconic musician praising the fashion star’s down-to-earth nature.

“Most designers make clothes for anorexic stickpins. He’s making clothes that everybody can enjoy,” the Tiny Dancer singer noted.

Gucci’s Alessandro Michele always fighting with internal voices

Alessandro Michele needs to feel like more than just a fashion designer.

The Gucci head has become a global star since landing the top job at the Italian fashion house in January 2015.

While he’s the go-to designer for stars like Harry Styles, Florence Welch, Jared Leto, and Lana Del Rey, Michele is adamant there’s more to his life than simply his job.

“I feel like I’m always fighting with a lot of Alessandros inside me,” he told Interview magazine. “These crazy conversations help me feel alive, which is important, otherwise I’d just be a fashion designer. That would be like putting myself in a tomb. It would be like saying I am just the boyfriend of someone else…that’s it. I’ve been with my boyfriend (for) almost 11 years, and people keep saying, ‘You need to get married to him.’ I’m always thinking, ‘But why? I want to feel free to break up tomorrow.’

“It’s also the way I feel about working for Gucci. I don’t care if tomorrow will be the last day, and that’s freeing. Otherwise, I’d just be working to keep the position, which inevitably is not sincere.”

Michele also showed off his modesty, by proclaiming: “Come on. I’m not god.”

The 46-year-old, who won Brand of the Year at The Fashion Awards 2018 on Monday night (10Dec18), went on to explain that he truly believes everyone has something unique and special about them.

“You could think that I’m the coolest and most attractive fashion designer, but I’m not unique,” he mused. “I’m only unique because I’m me. Just like you are only unique because you’re you. I’m not a diva.”

Lana Del Rey and Jared Leto celebrated becoming the new faces of Gucci Guilty fragrances with a joint bash at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery over the weekend.

The two singers will headline a series of campaigns for the luxury brand, beginning next year (19), and they launched the initiative during a Los Angeles party hosted by the fashion house over the weekend.

The stars, along with the brand’s creative director Alessandro Michele, were both in attendance for the event, which was documented on Instagram by fellow celebrity guest Courtney Love.

The upcoming promo, starring actor and Thirty Seconds to Mars singer Leno and Del Rey, will feature scenes shot at the iconic cemetery by photographer Glen Luchford.

Both stars have a friendship with Michele, who created the looks worn by the pair during the 2018 Met Gala.

“Jared is a kind of shaman, like a new Jesus of pop culture – long hair, beautiful face, a crazy way to show himself,” Michele told the New York Times last month (Oct18), while reflecting on the collaboration. “He’s a way to live.”

“Stay tuned tonight on @guccibeauty #foreverguilty,” Del Rey posted on Instagram ahead of the gathering, alongside an image of herself in a glittering gown.

The following evening, the two walked the red carpet during the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) Art + Film Gala, hosted by Gucci.

The 33 year old sported a stunning black gown from the brand with matching gloves, while the Oscar-winning Dallas Buyers Club star wore a 70s-inspired white suit and hat.

The upcoming Gucci fragrance is set to be unveiled on 15 January (19).

Kendall Jenner has learned to tackle her severe anxiety issues by taking advice from the secret “community” of fellow celebrity sufferers.

The model and reality TV star has been more open about her mental health struggles in recent years, and in a new interview with Elle magazine, she revealed going public has actually inspired other famous faces to reach out and offer their tips on how to get through the tough times.

“It’s interesting; ever since I said something about being anxious, a lot of people in the spotlight have come to me, being like, ‘Oh my God, me too!’,” Kendall told singer Lana Del Rey during the chat. “There’s this community. I take what they do to help themselves and piece it together to find what helps me.”

Lana went on to admit she was also one of those suffering behind closed doors, but she has found a few different ways to put herself at ease.

“I haven’t spoken that much about my anxiety over the years,” the 32-year-old shared. “But one of the cool things that’s come up is the focus on self-care. I do meditations for joy and happiness and try not to spread myself too thin.”

As for runway star Kendall, she has been practising Transcendental Meditation to calm her nerves, and she finds hanging out with a friend who happens to be a healer has brought her “good energy”, too.

The 22-year-old also makes an effort to curb her cell phone use, because she’s well aware of how social media has become an “addiction” for some. The brunette beauty’s tech ban also extends to her famous family’s text messaging groups, which she usually leaves on mute.

“I could not check my phone for two minutes, and there are, like, 100 text messages,” she moaned. “The majority of the time, my family group chat is on sleep mode. I can’t have it on vibrate.”

However, remaining in constant communication with her loved ones does have its benefits when it comes to keeping up with new developments in fashion and other industries.

“It gives me my daily dose of news sometimes,” Kendall admitted. “Like, just this morning, it was announced that Virgil Abloh is now the designer for men’s Louis Vuitton. I got that from my family group chat. Virgil’s been a homie for forever.”

The star enlisted Virgil’s help for her Met Gala outfit earlier this week, choosing a white jumpsuit by his brand Off-White.

Lana Del Rey channelled Old Hollywood at the Grammy Awards on Sunday night (28Jan18).

The 32-year-old singer, who was nominated in the Best Pop Vocal Album category for her record Lust for Life, stepped out in a stunning off-white dress with silver star embellishments from Gucci.

Lana accessorised her look with silver platform shoes, a long sparkly necklace, and a white silk rose on her wrist in support of the Time’s Up movement – but it was her halo-like headpiece that really grabbed fashionistas’ attention.

With her dark hair parted down the middle, the twinkling headpiece was placed on the back of her head, with many social media users pointing out at the look was very similar to a costume and headpiece worn by actress and World War II-era inventor Hedy Lamarr in the 1941 movie Ziegfeld Girl.

Lana wasn’t the only celebrity to make a serious sartorial statement on the night though; Beyonce made a powerful tribute to the Black Panther Party with her look.

The singer was joined by her rapper husband JAY-Z and their six-year-old daughter Blue Ivy in the front row of the awards ceremony, and looked glamorous in a black high neck dress with a large black hat from Nicolas Jebran. She matched her look with Lorraine Schwartz jewellery, a Judith Leiber purse, Jimmy Choo shoes, and sunglasses from Alain Mikli.

Beyonce paired her outfit with a slick of bold, purple lipstick and her make-up artist, L’Oreal Paris’ Sir John, revealed that the star made all the decisions when it came to styling, and decided to take inspiration from the revolutionary organisation which was founded in the U.S. in 1966.

“It started with Super Bowl (in January 2016), and here we are,” he told People, referring to Beyonce’s politically-charged halftime show which made explicit reference to the Black Lives Matter movement. “The turtleneck part of the dress tonight – it’s sculptural silhouette. It was a really strong, powerful moment. This is something that is representative of love and solidarity for her people.”
