It happens every fashion month: A new crop of pretty young things pops up in the most major front rows and at the biggest parties of the season. Often we know their names—likely because they’ve scored a magazine cover or have a few famous pals—but we’re not familiar with their résumés.
The prime example this season is Australian rapper Iggy Azalea, who was all over the place the last 30 days. From the front row at Chloé, Vivienne Westwood, Jeremy Scott for starters, to a surprise performance at the DKNY 25th Anniversary bash–and on the runway at Philipp Plein in Milan, she was everywhere we turned. Plus, she’s on the cover of some of fall’s hottest fashion glossies, including POP, Paper, Complex, and Oyster.
She has a super catchy single, true–but Azalea doesn’t even have a full-length album to her name: Her debut is set for a March 2014 release. And while she has a few high-profile gigs under her belt (she’s toured with Beyoncé) and she’s obviously stylish and is quickly amassing fans, we can’t help but wonder: Will she live up to the hype?
