Azealia Banks: Fashion Comes A-Callin’

‘Less than a year since “212” went viral,’ says The Guardian, ‘Azealia Banks’ assault on the fashion industry has been almost as much of a smash as her breakout hit. Her look in the accompanying video – Mickey Mouse jumper, cut-offs and pigtails – was a reflection of the scene she inhabited; the eighties-inflected, beat-up style of hipsters everywhere. Topshop, Terry Richardson and Lady Gaga stylist Nicola Formichetti came calling. Now Azealia Banks has been named as the new muse for New York’s king of downtown, Alexander Wang. Starring in a film for his T line of jersey basics, she’s bouncing around to her Van Vogue track, hair flying, in a cropped top, bomber jacket and tube skirt. If Lana Del Rey is going mass as the face of H&M, Banks is becoming an icon of cool.’
