Lana Del Rey as Close to Naked as Possible in GQ (13 photos!)

Lana Del Rey takes her game to a new level with a stunning photo spread in the British edition of GQ magazine, which proclaimed her “Woman of the Year.” It’s huge leap for someone who was an unknown a year ago, but Lana exudes 100 megawatt star power.

Del Rey gets as close to naked as possible in shoot by Mariano Vivanco that mixes sexuality with glamour and just a hint of decadence.

Del Rey, 26, never varies from her signature pout; her luscious lips are heightened by deep red lipstick with matching finger nails and her dark brunette hair tumbles in waves.

Lana Del Rey Elegant Decadence

A diamond and sapphire necklace, bracelet and ring by Chopard add a touch of elegance to the shoot, that conveyed a sense of European royalty. The shoot took place in the Principality of Monaco.

“We had a beautiful shoot in Monaco and I had a really interesting interview – for a change – and I was reminded of why I love to sing and why I wanted to become a writer,” she said after accepting her award at an event in London last night (Sept. 6).

Del Rey had the crowd laughing when she revealed that the hand clutching her breast in one photo was none other than Paul Solomons, the magazine’s creative director, who obviously reserved the most intriguing photo for himself.

“If you see in the magazine, in the middle of the spread, you’ll see a hand hoisting up one of my boobs,” she added. ‘That’s Paul’s hand. Couldn’t have done it without him.”
