Lana Del Rey has signed a modelling deal with the Next Model Management agency.

The singer has landed a contract with the company's talent wing, which has previously pulled in Ellie Goulding, Jessie J and Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner's ex Alexa Chung, reports Elleuk.com.

Del Rey has already recently dipped her toes in the fashion industry after designers Moschino and Prabal Gurung styled her and she performed at Mulberry's Spring/Summer 2012 presentation.

Christopher Kane and Emilio de la Morena also chose her breakthrough single 'Video Games' to soundtrack their spring/summer 2012 shows.

The deal comes after the president of Polydor Records Ferdy Unger-Hamilton recently hit out at claims that Lana Del Rey is in any way manufactured.

"Lana knows what she wants like few artists I've ever met," he said. "She likes to control every aspect of her career. Often we come across someone who is really good at writing songs or singing them, but Lana is that rare thing – someone who can do it all."

She is now set to release her debut album 'Born To Die' on January 30, preceded by the single of the same name on January 23.
