While we all wait in great anticipation for Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby, we’ve been treated to all the music that makes up its epic soundtrack. One such song on the album is Lana Del Rey’s “Young & Beautiful”. We’ve already heard the single, and now Lana has spoiled us with a visual.
If you want to talk technicalities, I’m of the opinion that in 2013 you have no reason not to record in widescreen 16:9. That said, the box screen feel somehow works for this video. Mirrors. Evening gown. Del Rey. Orchestra. Grand. Grand. Grand. Something tells me, that exact list of words was the treatment for this video which is actually pretty awesome. Watch Lana do her thing in “Young & Beautiful” right here:
