When it comes to best friends, it really doesn’t get any cooler than Azealia Banks and Cara Delevingne. Besides the fact that these two girls are absolutely KILLING it in their respective industries, they also always have a ton of fun wherever they go, whether it’s impromptu funny photoshoots, spontaneous beauty change-ups, or more recently, this weekend’s epic Mermaid Ball. We all know Azealia loooooves mermaids, so she threw a massive party at an aquarium in London to celebrate (and as a followup to the NYC and LA events that happened in the summer). Clearly it was an excuse to dress up, and Azealia and Cara didn’t disappoint one bit. Azealia hinted on Twitter about her date, saying “@Caradelevingne is my date for the mermaid ball! We just had a fitting for our mermaid costumes!” so we knew these two would turn up in something amazing.
Cara tweeted just before it all went down, “Feeling very at home in the aquarium with @AZEALIABANKS getting ready to unleash the inner mermaid! Who’s ready!? X.” Um…they were! Both girls showed up to the after party decked out in matching mermaid dresses by emerging U.K. designer Sorapol. Best costume party ever? We think so. It should go without saying that these girls each looked awesome, Cara rocking blonde waves and a blue and green dress, and Azealia working a sparkly purple number (with red hair!). Theme parties can often be hit or miss depending on whether or not the host dresses up, so we’re glad to see our girls going seriously ALL OUT. And for good reason, considering the London Mermaid Ball is the last of its kind. As Azealia tweeted, “After this mermaid era is closed its #witchinghour. #luxurywitch.” You know what that means…the witching hour has officially begun. Better start planning our outfits!
