The beauty from Down Under, Iggy Azalea, comes into her own on the cover of Paper Magazine’s Night Life Issue shot by Harper Smith. A true force of nature, this stunning 6′ tall Australian rap-phenom has been taking over the industry with her killer curves and clever attitude to match. With an ethereal presence that translates to a transparent performance style, her censor free philosophy about creativity evokes a kind of purity that’s often lacking in today’s overly manufactured stars. A savvy social media queen this girl knows how to work it, with a sophisticated understanding of what it means to use today’s tools of expression without killing the originality. Mastering the art of eclectic mania, Andrew Mukamal captures her unique sense of high/low style, with layers of ultra-lux leather & fur mixed in with a gritty combination of casual cool. Unfazed and unafraid, one gets the sense that Azalea isn’t in it for the fame and fortune, rather, she has a real hunger to share her talent with the world and see how far she can evolve as an artist. With model looks and a mind that cooks we could be looking at a modern vision of female empowerment.
