Jennifer Lawrence: Not Too Shabby

A good while ago, I wrote a piece on the pressures of being Miss Dior, the women who have come and gone and how doubtful I was on Jennifer Lawrence doing a decent job. I was terribly mistaken. 

And here are the campaign shots to prove it.

Iggy Azalea: A Freak Amongst Sheep

What do you get when you cross an Australian, Hip Hop, Modelling and a killer face? Well you certainly don't get Lil Kim. 

Iggy Azalea is the latest signing for T.I's record label, Grand Hustle, and although I haven't yet taken the time out to listen to her mixtape, she has already held my attention for longer than fashion muse Santigold ever did. Taking a good hard look at Iggy, you wouldn't pin her as a Hip Hop artist though, maybe another pop-fame-chaser? Her look feels exotic and the size of her rear end is bound to become legendary in the industry in no time. This Wilhelmina model is set to dominate, peaking at the best possible time thanks to the rise of Hip Hop in fashion. 

Edgy, she most definitely is. I foresee a great many campaigns coming her way, and with a song titled PU$$Y, I'm quite certain she'll have no problem keeping her male fans closer than the other Azealia ever has.

Muse of The Week: AKA

I know, most of my readers are from abroad, but that makes this muse even more of a revelation to you lucky sons and bitches. 

Meet AKA, South African rap phenomenon, and a fast-growing style icon in the music (and pretty soon, fashion) scene. 

Yes, he's as yellowbone as it gets, and I really should be focusing on getting some darker complexions onto my muse list, but there's an allure behind the new-age of South African Hip Hop that AKA is ushering in. It' s a more sophisticated feel, think of the man as SA's very own Rosewood Swag pioneer. AKA has got the sort of deft confidence that makes you do a double take. He's a sharp dresser too, with the clean suave attitude of a man on a mission, Hip Hop's James Bond?

Forget the new school neon, the Cream Cartel hairdos and the far too futuristic auto-tuned everything, AKA represents an old-school sophistication, and if that doesn't result in a southerly tsunami, I don't know what will.
