Lana del Rey’s new holiday H&M ad campaign: super hot or Photoshop fail?

Lana del Ray

Lana del Rey and her completely real lips continue to be a bigger deal than anyone could have ever imagined or asked for. After she captured a Vogue UK cover and was named GQ’s Woman of the Year, Lana was named the face of H&M for its fall campaign and accompanying creepy Lynchian short film. She’s also just been revealed as the face of Jaguar automobiles, and you can see her first commercial here. I’ll admit that Lana has a pretty nice body, but the rest of her just seems so damn fake.

Now H&M has revealed its new holiday campaign featuring Lana, and the adverts revolve around big hair, big lips, and big cars with some clothes somewhere in the mix. Oh, and there’s either a major Photoshop fail in this particular shot, or the shadows are messing around quite a bit with the look of the entire picture. I can’t tell which is to blame for the sketchiness here because it looks like a huge chunk of Lana’s abdomen is missing as she lounges upon this vehicle.

Most of the rest of the ad campaign revolves around Lana sticking her butt onto cars. I don’t really know what this has to do with selling clothing, but H&M must know what they’re doing. Or so I would assume.

    She’s definitely creeping looking. Does she have a new album? Or does her management just continue to try to blow smoke up our butts to make her relevant? Her first single was snoozeville.

  2. marie says:

    I’m confused, are the pictures for a car, car cover or for clothes? Either way, meh but I will never get her appeal. And how much of her hair is real?

  3. DailyNightly says:

    I still say this girl is the Kate Bosworth of the music industry. She is trying so hard to be relevant but no one is interested. Just not happening.

  4. merski says:

    I’m so goddamn sick of her botox face pouting at me on every corner. I dunno if it’s the same everywhere but Germany is flooded with her adverts…. Barf.

  5. Ella says:

    We need a “budget” option in the title, because these pics are decidedly budget. It looks like she rented a garage for a day, with a single fluorescent lightbulb. one camera, and two pairs of leggings to go with an assortment of monochrome tops.

    • KC says:

      Now, now, it looks like she sprung for two florescent light bulbs (I took a lighting class once, so clearly I’m an expert). And don’t forget the point and shoot camera she she set to timer and put on a tripod. Or do you think she just left the camera on top of a different car and then ran the car in the shot so she could “causally” drape herself on it?

    I really cannot stand Lana Del Ray. She is a brand more than she is an musician in the worst kind of way.

    She did a cover of Nirvana’s ‘heart shaped box’ at Splendour in the Grass. It was so terrible, Jesus wept

    • Christian says:

      Oh God, her cover of Heart Shaped Box had Kurt roooooooolling in his grave. I can’t think of anything he would hate more (well, mostly) than this entirely corporate product singing one of his songs. And I like Lana’s album! I really do, and I think she’s an okay model in these shots. But her live singing/stage presence is beyond abysmal. She’s really just novelty music. F*cking Carly Rae Jepsen has more authenticity.

  7. Micki says:

    Very Star Treck. Not in a good way though.

  8. NerdMomma says:


    Arrested Development reference, couldn’t help myself.

  9. some bitch says:

    This girl gives me the creeps. The few videos I’ve seen of Lana singing live, she’s truly a terrible singer. How the hell did she get a record deal?!

    • Emmaa says:

      Watch this:

      But don’t LOOK at the video. Love her singing but she’s awful at “performing”. I honestly think she did SNL that badly on purpose because she knew it would get her publicity. She’s a smart cookie after all.

      • KC says:

        I listened to your link and I made sure to shrink the window as soon as I was sure it had loaded. I know you probably listened to it and thought she was doing interesting things with her voice, but all I heard was her trying to do interesting techniques but struggling through them instead. She was on key through most of it yes, but it didn’t have any soul and was actually painful to listen to because I could feel her having trouble getting through it from beginning to end. She’s a weak singer, even for someone trying out for a local choir.

        But that’s just my opinion, I know it sucks when you really like someone and people disagree with you so don’t let my opinion take away from your enjoyment of her.

    Have one of you actually listen to her album? It’s f–king amazing!

    • Isa says:

      I haven’t listened to the entire album but the way she sings annoys me. It’s like one bug exhale while she mumbles as fast as she can.

    • Isa says:

      I haven’t listened to the entire album but the way she sings annoys me. It’s like one big exhale while she mumbles as fast as she can.

    • BangBang says:

      Her album is amazing!! These girls are just being catty and following the “trend” of not liking Lana for whatever reason.

      • Really? says:

        Dude, if we were to be following a “trend” it would be to worship her, pump up our lips, and flock to H&M so we could dress like her, which, SORRY, ain’t freaking happening.

        Her music doesn’t bug me – but i’ve only heard one snippet of a song on the iTunes preview button and it did not give me the slightest urge in the least to listen more much less buy it. I woudn’t mind hearing it again on the elevator however.

        She’s not an awful singer, but she appears to be soooo full of herself, but that may only be the case due to an over zealous PR rep, who in my opinion, should be shot with a tranquilizer dart! Those bastards are all dealing in the Cult of Personality, as if raw talent ain’t enough these days. Self-important pr!cks.

        Stop! Enough already with this chick!

    • Me Too says:

      Sadly I did waste almost an hour of my life listening to her album. It’s an over produced, auto tuned piece of you know what, and the fact she can’t reproduce it live proves that the girl can’t sing! Undoubtedly, Daddy has been watching his little girl sing karaoke for years and decided his baby was going to be a star. And, as usual, because they’ve got money, doors opened. She’s the Kardashian or Hilton of the music world…sorry but this girl is a FAKE.

    • Linda says:

      Seriously, have you guys listened to her album? It’s really amazing. So i kinda understand her hype.

  11. Me says:

    Sorry, You keep posting Lana del RAY in every post but she goes by Lana del REY… care to fix it? As for the photos, couldn’t care less…. bored to death

  12. Jayna says:

    The girl can write songs. I am addicted to Ride.

  13. Ellie66 says:

    I’m a bit out of the loop here but what does this women do? Singer? Bad singer? Model? I read she shagged Axel Rose (yuk!) I don’t get it she kinda dull looking. Where did she come from?

  14. geekychick says:

    Awful. Not just Lana (she really turned herself into an android-looking project), the clothes…It’s like H&M took it’s 90ies collections (which were better in quality of the material and the cut, trust me-I still have their blazer from 1999-wool and silk; you can’t find that kind of material in H&M these days) and just…gave up.
    Cars? Lana del Rey? C’mon H&M, stop being lazy!

  15. N-Bear says:

    I think I’ve figured out the photoshop thing – she’s in a groove that comes right next(toward hood center)to the passenger headlight. With the car hood jutting out at the center, it looks like a p-shop waist chunk was taken.

  16. Emmaa says:

    It really annoys me when people spell her name wrong (or anyones name wrong). Seriously, it would literally take you less than two seconds to google that. It just seems like people are so into not caring about her that they make an effort to misspell her name.

  17. drea says:

    When will she be over?!? How much more publicity could her daddy’s money and connections possibly get for her? I’m tired of the PR folks ramming her down our throats. Honestly, how many more people could possibly be interested in seeing more of her fake face and hearing her pretentious, second-hand music?

  18. TheOneAndOnlyOnly says:

    Agree with Drea, ailine and others – If you can’t sing live You’re not a SINGER – with today’s studio magic anyone can be doctored to sound good in the studio – SHe’s a talentless vapid moron Posters have actually posted some of her “interviews”, and she’s vacant – Eventually dad’s money will run out and she’ll disappear Why support useless weak noise over actual talent?
    Please covering Nirvana – the totally manufactured attempting to gain cred; wonder what Dave Groh thinks of this?

  19. Really? says:

    She looks like a gussied-up young Karen Black from Trilogy of Terror:

  20. Alana Fajina says:

    I think she looks gorj in these photos As Usual!! She is so sweet and lovely in person as well, I had the amazing opportunity to see/hug her at her Ride premiere in SM last week and I almost had a heart attack!! It was so sweet of her to do that for her fans when she really didn’t have to. I adore her and am So Glad she is on top of her game!!! She isn’t goin ANYWHERE and I can’t wait to see her again! :)

  21. KC says:

    I’m genuinely curious: Does anyone know exactly how much of her songs she writes? Because I remember back when Ashlee Simpson had an album she also said that she wrote her own songs, but on her reality show you found out that someone wrote all of the music (sometimes she had minimal influence along the lines of make it more like —-), she would hear the music, and then she would write lyrics to the music–but of course someone else would usually help her with that too. (“That’s a good start, but how about this instead?”) But she did it by herself! Does Lana “write” like that, or does she actually write the songs herself?

  22. gg says:

    The hair and the makeup do not work for me. She looks silly. She’s not owning those photos at all. Like somebody’s making her be a sex doll.

  23. dcypher1 says:

    Her music is horrible. It puts me to sleep very boring. I dont understand her appeal at all. Her lips look like 2 kilbasa gross.

  24. wendy says:

    I love her album. Super into it.
    She looks so dope in the Born to Die video in the white dress with the roses in her hair. I like how she looks.
    I also think she writes really good lyrics. And I dig the way she sings.
    Go Lana!

  25. emma says:

    I didn’t want to click on this to give the story more hits. But why is this girl anything of an anything. She had a mildly popular song that she couldn’t sing live. And nothing else.

  26. Israeli girl says:

    tell me, has she had too many surgeries and now it’s impossible for her to smile? are you sure she has teeth?
