Azealia Banks Does Alexander Wang / by

Alright, so I've been convinced enough to post about this girl on a regular since she is doing the most at the moment. Fresh from her "1991" EP release, Azealia Banks is still making big moves in 2012. She is now the face of Alexander Wang 2012 Fall Campaign.

The rapper was the designer's date at the 2012 MET Gala earlier this year and provided music to his Spring 2012 Campaign. In the new promo video, Azealia raps to her "Van Vogue" track which was lift from her EP. Check it out after the break.




Alexander Wang on Azealia..
“She exudes a certain rawness that makes her a very unique talent. I loved working with her on this video for T Fall 2012, and think the collaboration captures a collision of energies."
For his T campaigns, Alexander Wang tends to forgo the models for musicians. First there was Santigold and Spank Rock, then Die Antwoord, and now, for Fall, the foul-mouthed rap-and-pop darling of the moment, Azealia Banks.
It’s not the first time the two have linked up. Banks was Wang’s date for the 2012 Met Gala, as well as providing the music for his Spring 2012 AW campaign with Liya Kibede. Why the move in front of the camera? “She exudes a certain rawness that makes her a very unique talent,” Wang says. “I loved working with her on this video for T Fall 2012, and think the collaboration captures a collision of energies.”
Daniel Jackson directed the spot, which features Banks rapping “Van Vogue” from her recent EP 1991, with styling by Alastair McKimm. The video debuts exclusively here on Style.com.

She like a burning flame that people throw gasoline in...she's getting hotter and bigger. When have you ever head or seen a newcomer attend MET Gala or even become the face of an entire campaign? She's becoming hot stuff. While I have yet to listen to her EP, I hear it's good. So I just may download it. I mean what the hell, it is free.

Thanks Ty!
