Oooo, Azealia Banks has just been named as the new face of Alexander Wang! Mr Wang was certainly making a statement when he posed hand-in-hand with Azealia Banks at this year’s Met Gala, dude was giving us all the clues! The designer also played Azelia Banks during his AW12 show, but no one guessed she’d be the new face of T by Alexander Wang.
Wang told Style.com: “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.”
Exciting times for the new female rapper on the block! Check out the promo vid below, featuring ’Van Vogue’ from her EP 1991. I think it’s real cute; an appropriate personality for T by Alexander Wang.
