Azealia Banks opens for Philipp Plein AW15 in Milan

The rapper bossed the #pleinwarriors show with a hard-hitting performance of ‘Heavy Metal and Reflective’

"Ciao Milaannnnoooo what the fuck is goooood?!" That was the question posed by a boisterous Azealia Banks as she opened the Philipp Plein AW15 show at Milan Fashion Week. Dressed in Plein's American football-esque Warriors shirt and light-up trainers with LED soles, Banks kicked off proceedings with a suitably high octane performance of Broke With Expensive Taste single "Heavy Metal and Reflective". She had a lot to compete with – she was rapping in front of a gargantuan set that included an actual working roller coaster. 

It makes sense that Plein would ask Azealia to front his show, which featured streetwear-inspired mink coats and skintight black catsuits that wouldn't look out of place in Banks' own music video wardrobe. Expect to see her clomping around Manhattan in one of those oversized WARRIORS fur stoles sometime soon.

She also seemed pretty impressed with Plein's show, and one model in particular:
