Inside Lana Del Rey's Exclusive Downtown Performance For H&M

When crooner Lana Del Rey teamed up with H&M we knew there had to be a sultry performance to kick it all off. And Wednesday night that's exactly what we got. H&M and Lana Del Rey had no trouble convincing the fashion pack (us, included) to come waaaay downtown to The Wooly to fete her campaign. And, the $20 cab was worth it — mood lighting, pouty lips, some pointy-ass nails, a soul-tingling serenade, and, of course, an excuse to stay out late on Wednesday. As the U.S. president of H&M put it, “Tonight was the perfect way to celebrate for the first time with Lana. The vintage décor of The Wooly combined with Lana’s timeless voice was a seamless representation of H&M’s fall aesthetic.” Judging by the whoops from fans, including Prabal Gurung, Leandra Medine, Barbara Bush, prez was telling the truth.
