212 rapper Azealia Banks (who recently said she wants to be known as a vocalist now) has been chosen to front a new campaign for T by Alexander Wang.
Wang is known for not choosing models for his campaigns; in the past he has used Santigold and Spank Rock.
Banks and Wang have collaborated before, she was his date at the 2012 Met Gala and provided the music for his Spring 2012 AW campaign with Liya Kebede.
Alexander said he chose Azealia because ‘she 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.’
The video debuted exclusively on style.com but watch Banks rapping “Van Vogue” from her recent EP 1991 and let us know what you think of her modelling endeavours.
