Lana del Rey took the Indie blogosphere by storm in 2011. The mysterious singer's debut song, "Video Games" was a hipster hit, but equally buzzed about were Rey's spellbindingly gorgeous looks (and impossibly plump lips). Now, del Rey (25) is adding "model" to her resume after signing a contract with NEXT Model Management, Elle UK reports. Lana's had something of a nascent style career already: She's been dressed by Prabal Gurung and performed at parties sponsored by Mulberry, and "Video Games" was used as background music for Spring/Summer 2012 shows by Prabal, Christoper Kane and Emilio de la Morena.
2012 was already looking promising for Lana del Rey; She's set to release her [debut] LP, Born 2 Die later this month. Perhaps she'll be adding a Prada campaign -- for real this time -- to her arsenal. And if del Rey becomes the next chanteuse-turned-fashion-muse, Florence Welch will have some friendly competition.
