Nothing says "Tumblr" like a beautiful woman in a beautiful dress with the world's most morose facial expression, right? Well, maybe only a beautiful woman in a beautiful dress with the world's most morose facial expression edited to look like a pastel Polaroid.
When Del Rey isn't her sweet, somber self, she's sexy as hell. Turn that energy into a hot-as-hell gif, and Tumblr will eat it up.
The only person more Tumblr than Lana is probably James Franco. He's got it all: The hot "now" dude factor and the vintage babe thing a la Freaks and Geeks. Put the pair together and the Internet implodes.
The only thing that would make this gif more Tumblr is if she was wearing heart-shaped sunglasses and her lips were painted a vibrant red. Trust.
This one's quite the image. 1.) It's a selfie, but the arm is extended in a retro MySpace fashion. 2.) She's wearing what appears to be a vintage shirt; her hair is awry 3.) Her makeup is dark, deep and smudged. It's emo as hell, but in a pretty way, which is totes Tumblr.
A young Lana looks melancholic in front of a ruffled American flag. This is so Tumblr, it could be printed on a shirt at Urban Outfitters.
Homegirl cries while singing her own songs! What's more relatable than that?
Cats. Cats = The only thing more relatable than singing and crying.
Black fur, black hair, black lashes, black strap...you sense the pattern, right?
A sense of old school Americana runs rampant on the site, and in many ways, a love of California sunshine and the aesthetic that comes with it. Del Rey totally nails the look with this cute, slightly oversized, off-the-shoulder Mickey Mouse tee.
Lana is a total pro at romanticizing self-deprecation and that's totally inherent in her banger "Ride." She sings "Because I was born to be the other woman / Who belonged to no one, who belonged to everyone / Who had nothing, who wanted everything." Oh, LDR.
