Lana Del Rey Covers ‘Vogue Italia,’ Shares Her Original Poetry
Lana Del Rey stuns in a new photoshoot for this month’s Vogue Italia. Posing for Steven Klein, the 33-year-old graces three individual covers. Each appears more fabulous than the last, and the rest of the shoot is equally gorgeous and dreamlike. That’s not all, though. In a surprise move, the “Doin’ Time” siren also shared some original poetry and art with the publication. “May my eyes always stay level to the horizon / may they never gaze as high as heaven / to ask why. May I never go where angels fear to tread / so as to have to ask for answers in the sky,” she writes in a piece titled “Never To Heaven.”
She opened up about the opportunity on social media. “Three covers for vogue Italia,” she enthused in a caption alongside one of the photos. “I’m feeling super blessed that they asked me to do this and included some of my poetry – I usually like to stay low-key and stay in the studio and work but I’ve been buying my Italian vogue since I was 11 so I’m kind of in disbelief.” Hopefully that allusion to working in the studio means that we’ll be getting an update on the iconically titled Norman Fucking Rockwell in the near future. I’m really hoping to hear Lana’s new album sometime this year.
In the meantime, scroll through a gallery of photos from the shoot up top. You can also check out the rest of her poetry here.
