Lana Del Rey Throws a Lonely Wedding in 'Ultraviolence' Video

Lana Del Rey's 'Ultraviolence' album cover, 2014.

Just two months ago, Lana Del Rey sang at the rehearsal dinner for a little event called the Kimye wedding -- now, it's her turn. At least, it's her turn in for marriage in the conjured-up world of early '60s Americana she occupies in the majority of her music videos.

The music video for "Ultraviolence" shows LDR in a low-cut wedding dress trudging through the woods, wistfully and sensually singing the lyrics to her second album's title track. As per usual, the footage is grainy and the colors are washed out to give it that Super 8 home movie vibe. 

When she arrives at the altar, no one is there. Woe is Lana.

The whole look here is great, but that white dress, Lana? Come on, you've already told us, "I f—ked my way up to the top."
