'Born To Die' star Lana Del Rey has stripped naked for the cover of next month's GQ magazine. See the full cover below.

The singer, who released debut album 'Born To Die' earlier this year, appears on one of five special covers celebrating the fifteenth annual Men of The Year awards held by the magazine. Del Rey has been awarded the Woman of the Year award by the magazine.

Tinie Tempah, Robbie Williams, comedy actor James Corden and Mad Men actor John Slattery also appear on the alternative covers - all, as you may suspect, fully clothed.

Other winners of GQ Awards this year include Homeland actor Damian Lewis, Sacha Baron Cohen, Aaron Sorkin, Dermot O'Leary, Boris Johnson and Gary Barlow.

Lana Del Rey was in London last night (Sept 4) to collect her award at a star-studded ceremony which saw Team GB's athletes make an appearance alongside stars from the world of music, film, TV and err... Kelly Brook.

Del Rey has moved increasingly into the world of modelling in recent months, starring in campaigns by both Jaguar and H&M.

The 'Video Games' star was last in the headlines when she covered Nirvana's 'Heart Shaped Box' in Australia, a song Courtney Love duly informed her was 'about my vagina'.

Below: more naked stars than you can shake a stick at

  • The Midnight Beast: Stefan Abingdon of The Midnight Beast posted this photo of himself after getting to 100,000 followers on Twitter. His modesty was covered by just a simple sock... And we hope no one ended up wearing that later.

  • Lady Gaga: Ah, Gaga - so many naked photos to choose from! We went for this one - nice and simple. Because who doesn''t get naked on a chair and ask someone to take a photo of them? Come on, we''ve all been there...

  • Dappy: Although it was originally said that one of Dappy''s ex-girlfriends leaked this photo, the N-Dubz star later said that he did it himself after seeing the success of Chris Brown''s leaked photos. The said ex apparently described him as "legs like a chicken but hung like a tripod." Oo-er.

  • Lenny Kravitz: This photo of Lenny Kravitz almost feels like it should be art. Definitely the classiest photo on the list, this black and white snap was posted on the singer''s Twitter account. More stars should take a leaf out of his book!

  • Katy Perry: We''re not quite sure just what emotion Katy Perry was trying to evoke with this Twitter picture, but honestly? It just made us hungry. Especially with the hot weather lately, getting naked with some pizza seems like a really nice idea. Thanks, Katy!

  • Amanda Palmer: No stranger to getting naked, Amanda Palmer of The Dresden Dolls posted a whole gallery of similar naked photos. The images were an attempt to protest against her record label removing images from her ''Leeds United'' music video as they believed her stomach looked too fat.

  • Bat For Lashes: Natasha Khan ran into some problems when she used a naked photo for her latest album cover. Although she was trying to present a minimal image, the main comments seemed to be saying she didn''t look attractive enough. Oh dear...

  • McFly: McFly seem to take every opportunity to get naked. After promising that they''d post a naked photo if bandmate Harry Judd won Strictly Come Dancing, the boys didn''t back down on their promises. Danny Jones had also posted a nude photo earlier when Dougie Poynter won I''m A Celebrity. Maybe they should find a better way of celebrating in future.

  • Hayley Williams, Paramore: It''s still not entirely clear what happened with Hayley Williams, but it''s thought that she accidentally uploaded this photo to her Twitter account instead of sending it to someone. Even though she didn''t mean to do it, she wasn''t hacked and technically did it herself, so we''re going to include her anyway. Sorry Hayley!

  • Rihanna: Finally, Rihanna - we all knew she was going to be on here! The Barbados born singer seems to hate wearing clothes, and we would too if we had a body like that. She posted this photo from the ''Where Have You Been'' video set, but it''s just one in a long line of body baring snaps.
