Friday Fashion Fun: 08.31.12

The fierce rapper (and new face of Alexander T), Azealia Banks,  is collaborating wih cosmetics superhouse, M.A.C. This deep plum shade — right on trend with this fall’s dark-matted pouts — is named for Banks’ alter-ego, Yung Rapunxel.  [The Cut]


Iris Apfel turned 91 this week, but that won’t stop her from taking over the fashion world. The American fashion icon is the subject of Albert Maysles’ newest documentary, which follows Apfel everywhere from her studio, to a conference in which she gives young women advice, to her home, where she shows off her singing bunny. I challenge you to watch this trailer, and not become completely inspired (OK, obsessed) with this fashion legend. [Stylite]
