Fashion’s latest darling is no doubt Azealia Banks. The raptress is a favorite of Karl Lagerfeld, performing at Chanel‘s The Little Black Jacket launch party, and has been taken under the professional styling wings of Nicola Formichetii. The 20-year-old will soon have her official coming out party when she performs at this year’s Costume Institute Met Gala

Azealia Banks to Rain Expletives All Over the Met Gala

Banks previously tweeted that she would attend the annual ball on the birdlike arm of Alexander Wang: “I can’t wait for the MET ball! I’m going as Alexander Wang’s date. He custom made my outfit and shoes ! !!!! It’s soooo hot !”

Then yesterday she revealed, also via tweet, that Cinderella/Rapunxel was not only going to the ball but also werqing the ball: “I’ve Been invited to Perform for PRADA next week in NYC! Gonna b so lush !! Let’s see what new songs I debut there!#metball2012″

Both posts have since disappeared but a tweet’s not like a regrettable one-night stand you can pretend never happened. It’s more like the resulting venereal disease that will haunt you for the rest of your days.

Anyway, let’s all hope for pictures of Anna Wintour sweeping the floor with her ass as she, Grace Coddington and André Leon Talley shut down the dancefloor. [Styleite]

I was center square from 1969 to 1978, during which I perfected the art of the zing as well as a crippling cocaine addiction. Bea Arthur was responsible for both. @LesFabian lester dot brathwaite at gmail
