I should have known it was love at first sight when Azealia Banks showed up as Alexander Wang’s date for the 2012 Met Gala! And now she has just been made the newest face of Wang’s T Fall 2012 collection. The campaign video premiered today, with an array of beauty shots with Banks mouthing the words to her dope track, Van Vogue. But what many of you may not know, is that Mr. Wang has a certain affection for dope brown female rappers.
As a matter of fact, Rapstress, Foxy Brown sat front row, and performed for Wang’s After party for his Fall 09′ Collection just a few short years ago.
As you can see from the pics of both a sweaty Wang and Brown, they partied like it was …2009!
So it’s new surprise that he’d tapped into the talents of the fresh Harlem MC. Step into the new campaign video featuring Banks below …
I hope Banks is ready to pay homage, cause this is one opportunity that might not have had happened without Foxy’s precedent.
I’m Just Sayin’ …
