ART X STYLE:5:46 PM
Brooke Candy x Diesel
While ratchets worldwide and future Bad Girl's Club hopefuls still pray and worship their deity Miley, some are gearing up to receive a palette full of Hard Candy. You could mistake this porcelain doll for Cyndi Lauper's granddaughter [like I did] rocking a head full of blonde cornrows but Rapper Brooke Candy is slowly unfolding onto the music scene in more controversial ways than one. Move over Kreyshawn, the white girl raunchy sex parade has a new face. We shall call her "The Hood rat Drew Barrymore".
Madame Candy prances through self directed videos draped in gold space suits, 90's nail art and oozes sex drugs and hip-hop. The same wild child gestures that allowed us to fall in love with other rough snowflakes like Lil Debbie and Iggy Azalea has grabbed the attention of Diesel's artistic director, Nicola Formichetti who is no stranger to pushing the envelope for an artistic spread, himself. Formichetti summoned the femme fetale to be the face of the brand's sexy Spring 14' accessory campaign stating that “As a rapper, performer, muse, and stripper, Brooke Candy is an artist who has unique access to every social level, she traverses class systems and defies racial and sexual stereotypes.” And I won't dare differ.
