Azealia Banks Embraces the Glamorous Life + Examines Fame in ’1991′ Video

Azealia Banks has always resembled a young Naomi Campbell, and she milks her drop dead good looks in her ’1991′ video, an ode as much to her fashion sense as it is to her hometown of NYC.

The clip opens with a close up of a camera lens, showing Banks’ rise to fame, paparazzi pics and glamour shoots. She rocks a white minidress, black fishnets, black platform booties and red lipstick as she sits with a magnifying glass behind a fish bowl, metaphors for life in the public eye.

In another scene, Banks rocks a black midriff-baring suit and dark plum lipstick (perhaps her signature Mac shade) and dances with two cohorts sporting black pants and white tops — they look like misplaced wait staff next to the stunning Banks. Perhaps that’s the point, though: Banks is the boss, and she looks the part. We’re also treated to visuals of the beautiful Banks in the studio, as well as snickering to herself alone in a dark room.

While the clip doesn’t necessarily boast a plot or a story, it’s not necessary in Banks’ case. We’re seeing life through her lens, and her animated gestures, tongue-in-cheek humor and haute couture model looks make it just as, if not more, entertaining than any actual narrative ever could be.
