Azealia Banks and Solange are each Fashion Week front row staples in their own right. Miss Knowles (who just dropped a teaser video for her new forthcoming album BTW!!) is known to primarily haunt the coveted seats at New York Fashion Week while Harlem-native Banks frequents the international circuit even though both ladies are currently based in New York. The two finally crossed paths at this season’s Milan Fashion Week sitting front row at the Just Cavalli Spring 2013 show!
Truthfully, we’re not quite sure why this kind of fashion collision hasn’t happened before. Whatever the reason, we’re soooo thankful it’s happening now. Also, at all. Azealia and Solange have pretty divergent styles, and this front row snap is a pretty perfect example of that. Banks with her red-purple mermaid hair worn straight but still wayyyy past waist-length wears a short-sleeved black and neon leopard print panel number. She continues the panelling motif going all the way down to her mesh and patent white creeper boots. Solange, on the other hand, works a mixed blue china pattern look: a blazer with a satin peaked lapel and a dress with a complementary symmetrical mirror print bodice and latticed skirt. She ties it all together with Louboutin sandals and a bold red lip.
