Today in clothes-that-make-us-the-saddest news, Old Hollywood fashion plate Lana Del Rey stepped onto the 2013 Brit Awards red carpet dressed as an evil nurse. The raven-haired singer paired a belted black shirt dress with a utilitarian side braid, feathered cat eye, and black flats — which would be a totally appropriate uniform at, say, Briarcliff Mental Institution, but not so much at the U.K. equivalent to the Grammys. Her main accessory: her greasy-haired Scottish rocker boyfriend with a tongue for Pepsi Cola, Barrie-James O'Neill. 

Del Rey — who, let the record show, should know better because she's inked fashion endorsements with H&M and Mulberry — is up for International Female Solo Artist at this year's Brits. Last year, a still-blond Lizzy Grant graced the awards ceremony in a slinky, off-shoulder crimson gown very much in the singer's glamorous retro style. But oh, what a difference a year in the spotlight makes.
