Another day, another amazing Elle “Women In Music” photo shoot! This time the mag featured one of our fave female rappers, Ms. Azealia Banks. Nicola Formichetti styled AND shot AZ in this Mickey Mouse-inspired ensemble, which takes us wayyyy back to our Disneyland days. (Also, hai, remember her “212” music video debut in a Mickey sweater? Looks like someone has a soft spot for that ol’ mouse.) Here she sports a Moschino chapeau (which is actually a matador hat!) to match Mickey on her custom canary yellow Boadicea Claridge latex dress—and quizzical facial expression.
Azealia BA-ROUGHT her beauty game to this shoot with amazing teal and green mermaid locks, hot pink cheeks and fuchsia lips. She sported two-tone eyeshadow with a swipe of silver in the center blended into royal purple on the outer edges of her peepers. Her nails look gorge (per ushe) in a bold purple hue. We’re so stoked to see Azealia Banks and Nicola teaming up again after their initial collab at the men’s Mugler fall A/W 2012 show last year. We can’t WAIT to see where this partnership takes them!
