Lana Del Rey Arrives In A Cape To The 2012 Met Gala

It’s nice to see Lana Del Rey in something other than her signature white performance dresses and her out-and-about blue jeans. The throaty songbird arrived at the 2012 Costume Institute Gala at New York’s Metropolitan Museum Of Art donning an elegant gown and a … black cape. While the outfit looked stunning on the Born To Die artist, Lana’s addition of dark lipstick made us wonder if maybe she misunderstood the invitation and came dressed in costume (perhaps as a vampire?).

Tell us what you think of the “Video Games” songstress’ latest red carpet ensemble below — or on Facebook and Twitter. (Speaking of Twitter, Lana, we noticed you changed your bio to “I sing the body electric” and inquiring minds want to know: Are you a big Walt Whitman buff, or is that a Twilight Zone and/or Fame soundtrack reference?)
