Iggy Azalea Is Draped In Flowers On Cover Of ‘Complex’

Just as we were getting ready to say goodbye to summer, Complex magazine goes and releases a summery, Hawaiian-themed cover and spread featuring Iggy Azalea. Now we won’t be able to leave summer behind until the magazine leaves stands in November. SUMMER 4EVER, Y’ALL. The colorful cover features a naked Iggy (*GASP* SCANDAL!) on a bed of flower leis, a few of which are strategically placed to cover some crucial areas. If this cover doesn’t make you want to drench your bed in flower petals and then roll around in them, nothing ever will.

The photos inside, shot by Gavin Bond, fuse pin-up poses with a campy Hawaiian theme: Iggy is reminiscent of a blonde Bettie Page. Adding to her pin-up look is the debut of her new, and seemingly temporary, bangs. They’re short, thick, and rolled under, but still manage to look good. Her makeup is the same in every shot: a bright red lip color, a subtle cat-eye, and slightly exaggerated brows. But it’s the bangs that transform her from modern-day “Work” to 1940s throwback.

The photos feature the rapper in a number of animal-print bathing suits, against colorful, tropical backgrounds, sippin’ on drinks out of coconuts, playing the drums, and facing off with a tiki mask. Fittingly, the swimsuits, with the exception of one, are all vintage. The shoes (which she’s only wearing in one shot) are not vintage but Jimmy Choo. You can peep the rest of the pin-up-esque pics on Complex’s website, or get your hands on a paper copy in October. Until then, we’ll be figuring out more ways to make summer last forever and finding clip-in bangs that look as good as Iggy’s.
