We know pretty dresses are far more frivolous things to keep at the forefront of your mind than SpaceX and Tesla. But for someone who also has a strong taste for cognac and dusty pickups, it has come to our attention that Lana Del Rey is severely lacking in the cocktail attire department.
On the track “Cruel World,” off her new album Ultraviolence, Lana sings:
“With my little red party dress on,
Everybody knows that I’m a mess,
I’m crazy, yeah.”
Well, crazy for repeat outfits maybe. And she’d better believe people are looking at her like a mess, because she’s been partying in that red dress since that time she went “Off to the Races” two years ago:
“Slippin’ on my red dress, puttin’ on my makeup
Glass film, perfume, cognac, lilac
Fumes, says it feels like heaven to him.”
And let’s not forget that suspiciously similar-sounding dress she lent to her alter ego that same year. Hopefully Carmen knows a good dry cleaner:
“Put your red dress on, put your lipstick on
Sing your song, song, now the camera’s on
And you’re alive again.”
It also made a reappearance on “Summertime Sadness”:
“I got my red dress on tonight
Dancing in the dark in the pale moonlight
Done my hair up real big beauty queen style
High heels off, I’m feeling alive.”
C’mon, Lana. Unless you’re pulling some Marge Simpson moves with an entire wardrobe of identical red dresses, we think it’s time to treat yourself to something new. Consider our suggestions below.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
