Bounding onto the music scene a year ago with her viral YouTube hit 212, harlem-born rapper Azealia Banks has quickly become a fashion darling. Banks has an unapologetic sense of style and songwriting, and her distinctive way of mixing (not always matching) high fashion and streetwear has intrigue, as featured in numerous high-end fashion magazines (for example, her internationally banned Dazed & Confused cover). She attended the swanky and exclusive Met Ball in April and performed at the aftershow. Most recently, she stars in a new video for Alexander Wang’s T line. It’s a fitting combination—they’re both the embodiment of New York’s confident cool.
