Listen to a New Track By Lana Del Rey

-------

It seems that Lana Del Rey has cured her “Summertime Sadness.” In last year’s popular warm-weather jam (which actually came out in 2012 but exploded in the summer of 2013 after it was remixed by French DJ Cedric Gervais), the artist sings of “dancing in the dark in the pale moonlight.” Well, it seems like SoundCloud’s latest leak may be Del Rey’s direct follow-up. Titled “Meet Me in the Pale Moonlight,” the song surfaced last night, just ahead of Del Rey’s Ultraviolence tour, which kicks off at Coachella next weekend. The new tune not only boasts the heady, legato melodies we’ve come to love, but also funky guitar riffs akin to the groove of Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky.” Does it have the potential to become a summer anthem? Absolutely—no remixing required.

At The Met: Cape Town

-------

We’ve already noted the influence Angelina Jolie had on this year’s Met ball red carpet. No less influential: Gwyneth Paltrow. Paltrow’s cape-and-gown Tom Ford look was Oscar night’s best, and it’s proven to have legs at the Met, too. Gwyneth’s stylist, Elizabeth Saltzman Walker, told me at an event in Paris that she was inspired by Jackie Kennedy’s timeless chic when working on Gwyneth’s Academy Awards look. Last night, some of those donning capes, like Maria Grazia Chiuri, in Valentino, went for classic, too. But there were just as many others who chased glitz and glam. Lana Del Rey sparkled in custom Altuzarra, and Bianca Brandolini d’Adda, in Dolce & Gabbana, reminded me of an Italian movie star from the sixties. Sally Singer was lacy in Nina Ricci, but the cherry on the surrealist cake goes to Linda Fargo in custom Naeem Khan. Shocking, Schiaparelli-style.

Who’s That Girl?

-------

The Costume Institute’s Prada/Schiaparelli exhibition is well on the way, which means only one thing: The annual Costume Institute Gala is coming soon, too. Designers scramble to snap up celebrity dates for one of fashion’s biggest nights, and competition is fierce. So far, only two pairings have been revealed. Joseph Altuzarra will be taking love-her-or-hate-her chanteuse Lana Del Rey, who has been an all but inescapable presence in the cultural conversation for months. (Is she authentic? Inauthentic? Can she sing? Does it matter?) This afternoon, it was revealed that Proenza Schouler will be taking Australian actress Isabel Lucas, to which the resounding response is…who?

If you haven’t heard much about Lucas yet, it’s likely that soon you will. The young actress is well-known in her native Australia, where she rose to fame on the soap Home and Away, but much farther under the radar in the U.S., despite roles in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and Daybreakers, Ethan Hawke and Willem Dafoe’s grisly vampire flick. But Lucas has caught the eye of some of Hollywood’s most powerful and respected. Steven Spielberg cast her in his miniseries The Pacific in 2010, and she nabbed a key role in The Tree of Life director Terrence Malick’s Knight of Cups, alongside Natalie Portman and Christian Bale. And though she may look new, Lucas is no stranger to the fashion scene—this isn’t even her first Met gala. She attended last year, finding her way onto several best-dressed lists, as a guest of Louis Vuitton.

Here’s music’s latest odd couple: Axl Rose and Lana Del Rey. The New York Daily News reports that the two were spotted together in Los Angeles over the weekend, and last month, Del Rey attended two back-to-back GNR shows (not to mention, she’s got a song entitled “Axl Rose Husband”). [NYDN]

In LifeStyle Mirror’s feature story today, Elisa Sednaoui reveals that her latest project is a documentary, entitled Kullu Tamam (“Everything Is Good” in Arabic). The film, which Sednaoui co-directed and produced, “focuses on how villagers in southern Egypt have been coping with the uprisings in the Middle East.” [Lifestyle Mirror]
