In a move that will surprise absolutely nobody, Lana Del Rey, she of the bee-stung lips and haunting vocals, has just signed a contract with NEXT Model Management.

It was only a matter of time before the You Tube star and runaway music industry success of 2011 got her perfectly manicured claws into the fashion industry too. Her song Video Games was the soundtrack to two shows at London Fashion Week last year (Christopher Kane and Emilio de la Morena) and Lana herself is a fashionistas dream, with her 60s retro bombshell looks and perfect pout.

She's already been spotted in Prabel Gurung (who dressed her for the Q Awards) and wears Antonio Berardi in her latest music video, Born To Die.

So who will snap her up for her first campaign? Our money's on Miu Miu...though as many have already pointed out, if it weren't a bit too late, she would be a shoe-in for the late 50s-inspired S/S 2012 Prada collection, which she modelled for V Magazine's music issue. Talk about a match made in heaven!
