The oh so controversial Azealia Banks graced the cover of PAPER magazine, not only is she known to raise eyebrows with her racy lyrics, but she is also known for unique sense of style. Azealia wore tye-died shorts and mirrored hat from Joyrich.
There’s no doubting the role Banks’s tunes have played in building such a deafening buzz: Beyond “212,” tracks like “Fuck Up the Fun” and the timpani-powered “Jumanji” reflect her firecracker flow and her exquisite taste in beats from around the globe. But it’s also the rapper’s unique style — think rough-and-tumble street kid meets leather-clad glamazon — that adds to the whole package. The designer Alexander Wang, who always has his eyes peeled for music’s next It Girl, took Banks as his guest to this year’s Met Ball.
