Fun fact: Today is my birthday (YAY, ME!), and let me just say that I could NOT have received a better gift than this, y’all—Azealia Banks stars in Alexander Wang’s latest T Fall 2012 campaign video! Eeee. In the black and white, 53-second vid of pure awesomeness, Azealia gets down in killer crop tops, body-con dresses and varsity jackets to her song “Van Vogue” from the recently-released 1991 EP. Her long, luscious waves FLY as she hops around in Wang garb to her ’90s-inspired hit, and it’s absolutely HYPNOTIZING. I’ve already watched it 8 times. #happybirthdaytome
As excited as I am, I can’t say that I’m SUPER surprised about A. Wang choosing Azealia to be the big face of his campaign because 1.) Alexander lovessss musicians fronting his brand (see: last summer’s campaign with Santigold and Spank Rock) and 2.) A and A have been (very obviously) becoming BFFs over the past few months. (I mean, they were dates to the MET Gala! Ain’t no secret lovefest there.) Alexander told Style.com that Azealia “exudes a certain rawness that makes her a very unique talent. I loved working with her on this video for T Fall 2012, and think the collaboration captures a collision of energies.” Awwww. <3 Well, I loved y’all working together too.
