The custom Alexander Wang heels for Azealia Banks.

To put it gently, our hearts exploded when we peeped Azealia Banks’ Facebook status last night. It read: “Sooo…. Alexander Wang is making me a custom made dress AND custom made shoes?!?! *melts into mysterious blue liquid* *ooozes across floor*” Then, she followed up with a photo of the shoes (above) on Instagram, and we fuh-reaked out. Cutout black stacked heels in patent leather, lambskin, AND snakeskin? Dead. There’s still no photo evidence of the dress (yet), but we’re guessing it’s something asymmetrical, black, and all-out amazing. I mean, I guess we shouldn’t be TOO surprised the rapper is getting killer custom freebies considering she’s become a serious fashion staple as of late. She just released a new track at a Chanel pop-up shop shindig in Tokyo, performed at Kanye West’s Paris Fashion Week afterparty, and was the music behind the Mugler men’s fall 2012 show. Also, remember that time she performed at Karl Lagerfeld’s house? Yeahhhhh. We couldn’t be more happy for Azealia, though, and we’re super stoked that she has such a heavy influence on the fashion world. We LOVE seeing designers get inspired by some of our favorite musicians, and we can’t wait to see what other custom clothes are coming down the pipe—as long as she keeps up that unbridled excitement (just like us!).
