If you’ve yet to hear Iggy Azalea’s song “Fancy,” then we invite you to emerge from the rock under which you’ve been hiding for the past month. Not only does the Australian 23-year-old rapper have the number one song on the U.S. Billboard charts due to the almost overnight success of the catchy song, but she has also nabbed the number two spot as a result of her guest spot on crooner Ariana Grande’s pop tune “Problem.”
But here’s why you should really keep an eye on Ms. Azalea: her red carpet game is incredibly strong. Although while on stage she embodies the ultimate bad girl rapper, regularly wearing Rihanna-worthy bodysuits, lots of bling, and crop tops galore—on the red carpet, she is a vision of classic glamour. She favors some of the most timeless designer names: Elie Saab, John Galliano, and Alexander McQueen to name a few.
We caught up with her stylist, James Knox, who shared all the details and inspiration for Azalea’s most recent red carpet moments—including one very surprising alteration made to a Galliano runway gown.
Read on and tell us if you agree that she’s THE fashion star to watch this summer!
