Right guys, super hot Azealia Banks has just been named as the new face of Alexander Wang and we're mega excited. The rapper is the latest in a long line of musicians to front his T line, following in the footsteps of Santigold, Spank Rock and Die Antwood.
The rapper is the face of the line's Fall collection and a promotional video of her modeling the casual-cool, ready to wear pieces has just been released. Filmed in black and white and colour, it features Azealia rapping 'Van Vogue' from her recent EP 1991. She bounces around, dances playfully and flips her enviably long hair about.
The video was directed by Daniel Jackson and styled by Alastair McKimm. He put the rapper in an uber cool wardrobe of crop tops, short, jackets, bralets and long sleeve tops with sheer panels from the T collection. It's one of the most simple and fun promo videos we've seen in a while, ending with a really sweet shot of Azealia laughing.
This isn't the first time that Azealia has teamed up with Alexander Wang. In fact she seem pretty much bffs with the designer. Azealia was Alexander's date for the Met Gala this year. Plus he used her track for his Spring 2012 AW campaign.
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.”
