Hot newcomer Azealia Banks, notorious for fresh, cutthroat lyrics, and throwing more shade than a cracked MAC palette, proves that she brings both awesome noise AND eye candy to the hip-hop scene. Here are our top 4 looks from Krystal Pepsy herself. Check em! “212″
First one’s little Miss Banks in braids and a Mickey Mouse sweater, playing on the sidewalk, but with rather … colorful language instead of nursery rhymes. It’s a sassy-mouthed Yung Rapunxel off the video to her debut single “212″. We’re seriously loving her spin on this style. Let’s call it “hood Lolita”.
From cute to dust-kicking, horse-wrangling, revolver-cocking, wild western boss lady, this transformation into lady “Liquorice” for the 1991 LP is whip-crack sharp.
Off the same album, the newly released MV to her single “Van Vogue” has her looking like a flossy hustler who isn’t afraid to get her weave wet. Note the avant-garde spackle —that caviar, black pearl, octopus ink bubble lip. It seems to be a little nod to her mermaid peg coming up next on the list.
Azealia’s all decked in shiny holographic scales and green mermaid locks for SPIN Magazine‘s Look Issue. Qurl is fiercely serving urban style underwater with blinged-up shells and booty shorts. Werq.—ME LOVE YOU LOONG TIME
