Maxim Loves…Lana Del Rey in Black and White

We’re celebrating the indie singer’s retro-inspired roots with this black and white montage.

Best known for her deep, sultry vocals, Lana Del Rey has been providing fans with ear and eye candy since she rose to fame in 2012 with her self-titled debut album. These days you can’t turn on the radio without hearing one of her indie hits – “Born to Die,” “Blue Jeans,” “Young and Beautiful” – and quite frankly, we don’t mind one bit. Now that the world has finally caught on to Lana (who also snagged a spot on the 2014 Maxim Hot 100 list), we’re paying tribute to her retro look with these gifs featuring the songstress. Take a look; your “Summertime Sadness” is guaranteed to dissipate.
