Yay or Nay: Azealia Banks at the Serpentine Summer Party
Every now and again we see a young singer or actress who is seemingly thrown into the spotlight from nowhere; they have to navigate the media, the photographers, and the bloggers, as well as learning quickly that you can't please everyone. Having the guts to stand your ground is difficult in that situation, but it seems that 21-year-old Azealia Banks has managed to charm the world and stay true to herself in the process.
On Tuesday night, the New York rapper attended the Serpentine Summer Party, as well as performing her hot single '212' in front of a celebrity filled room including Cara Delevingne and Benedict Cumberbatch. The "Yung Rapunxel", who stormed the stage at Hackney Weekend in a sexy ensemble, wore a much more whimsical look this time around, opting for a Moschino Cheap and Chic dress from the brands Autumn/Winter 2012 collection. Her dreamy 60's inspired dress sparkled in the evening thanks to the hundreds of candy coloured paillettes, and featured an orange collar as well as a pompom strewn hemline.
The outspoken singer decided to team the designer dress with a pair of throwback jelly shoes that a lot of people have hated on but that I personally enjoy; a pair of heels would have looked too much with the dress, and plain flats just wouldn't have cut it. I also love that she didn't accessorise and that she wore her hair in loose waves to add a little extra dimension.
As always, we understand that not everyone will see eye to eye on this outfit, so we're putting it to you - is Azealia's look fierce or frightening?
Pssst, if you're jelly over Azealia's jellies, we found an almost identical pair of Juju heeled sandals over at Urban Outfitters for £24.
