Lana Del Rey’s New Fashion Muse: ’80s Secretary?

Considering the singer’s original billing as a “gangster Nancy Sinatra” and throughout her subsequent incarnations (rock ’n roll, old school glamazon, sultry chanteuse…you get it) Lana Del Rey has seen more than her fair share of style transformations these past few months. She’s switched up her hair, flaunted a gold tooth, and most recently grinned in long underwear on the cover of Rolling Stone Mexico. But when LDR debuted yet another new look this weekend, it still threw us for a loop! We’re used to seeing Lana channel other decades in her fashion choices, but nothing quite so specifically ’80s until now. The singer hit a pre-Golden Globe Awards party on Friday wearing a tan overcoat and copper-colored dress, both by London designer IZMAYLOVA. Accessorized with classic white Pedro Garcia pumps and a David Swarovski clutch, the neutral ensemble is undeniably retro, don’t you think? The prim and proper vibe is a far cry from the ’70s bohemian she’s been channeling, but turns out the star is sticking with her latest look…for now, anyway, since she continued this secretary-chic streak throughout the weekend.

She worked the oversize blazer and light color palette again just two days later after last night’s awards, this time stepping out in wide-leg trousers by Houghton and bringing a whole new kind of drama. The bottoms are so voluminous, it took us a second to realize that yes, they are actually pants (#mindblowing). Lana didn’t stray far from the silhouette on top either, this time working a double-breasted blazer. And ahem, are those subtle shoulder pads, we see? Something else of note: the singer’s signature bouffant is conspicuously MIA. Ch-ch-ch-changes!

Until we’re able to fully wrap our minds around the new Working Girl Lana, tell us what you think of her makeover in the comments.
