Azealia Banks Is In A Vice Fashion Editorial That Needs To Be Way Longer

Oh man, this Azealia Banks 212 video has been making my LIFE for WEEKS now, to where I’ve been watching it on repeat because there’s something so gloriously s*** eating and triumphant about the entire operation. The chick just smiles, licks her teeth, flails her arms, raps, and sing-yells in front of brick wall in a Mickey Mouse sweater, ripped-up jorts, and these quadruple braid pigtail things and her baby hair’s all, HAAAAAY, and it’s fantastic because who cares since her face is just so beautiful.

And it’s not just one of those, "Her face is so empirically beautiful because blablabla GoldenRatio…" or anything like that, it’s her EYES. Impossibly long lashes framing surreal-steez BRIGHT whites and this glitter of unadulterated trouble, nevermind the filth that’s coming out of her mouth because the lyrics to her insanely catchy, ridic winsome single are down right friggin’ purple. It’s the best.

Anyways, there’s some drama between her and her producer (I’ve been monitoring on Twitter) whose name I won’t even mention here because I’m salty that whatever strife’s betwixt them is preventing me from reliably playing the video in a loop every afternoon or embedding it here (and honestly, it really is one of those BANGERS that serves as the best sort of new[ish] artist résumé because there are three parts that are downright GLOATING about her range) so you can imagine how excited I was that Vice filched a fash-editorial with the Harlem resident recently because she is wonderful and I want her to win at everything.

Shot in Paris by Amandine Paulandre and styled by Sam Voulters, girl is dipped in gobs of vintage (mmm...Versace) while she was there to perform at a L’Officiel party at PFW. I only wish there were seventeen majillion more photos. Go to the site for full credits but um, yeah, those enormo-creepers are, of course, Undergrounds. {via Vice}
