Lana Del Rey wears the same dress onstage that she goes lunch in

Lana Del Rey promotes her new album, «Norman F—ing Rockwell.» It’s the greatest Lana Del Rey album, dizzying and charming, mysterious and lucid, unprecedented while still feeling like more of the same, genius all the way.
«My album’s not good because I overcame things from my childhood. It’s good because the melodies are great, and because I have a natural-born ability to put words together.» But there is a absolute kind of tenderness now present in her music, a preserved innocence that once seemed temporary lost.
The release of NFR! provided an opportunity to reflect on the nostalgia theme, especially the sweet melancholic variety Del Rey is so heavily associated with.
The pop star has recently been photographed in Los Angeles, the city that Lana now calls home. The 34-year-old singer revealed some facts about her working process: «Onstage, I wear the same shoes and dress that I go lunch in. It’s always just a dress off the rack. I’ve never had a costume maker. I do my own makeup. But everyone says I have a ‘persona.’ Just because I wear short dresses doesn’t mean I can’t write my own narrative.»
