Lana Del Rey, ‘Young and Beautiful’ [Video]

Subscribe to on

Lana Del Rey‘s ‘Young and Beautiful’ is featured on ‘The Great Gatsby’ soundtrack, so the video for the lounge-like, moody track includes plenty of visual cues from the Jazz Age, the era in which the movie is set.

Del Rey performs in a long gown, sporting cherry-red lips, huge hoop earrings and diamond teardrops next to her eye. She emotes, wearing the pain of the song’s lyrics on her face and in her eyes, while a symphony plays in the background.

There’s not a lot of action in the video, save for close-ups of Del Rey’s gorgeous face. The clip is simple yet powerful. And it allows the song and the singer’s lament of her “aching soul” — and her fear that she won’t be loved when “young” and “beautiful” are adjectives that no longer apply — to be the focal point.
