Azealia Banks performs her 1991 EP, plus new single "Esta Noche," at MAC Cosmetics during Fashion's Night Out in New York on September 6th, 2012.

Banks told Rolling Stone that her debut lipstick for MAC, "Yung Rapunxel," was inspired by her alter-ego's moxie and her current purple weave. She wore vintage Gaultier and custom Cerre for the occasion, but gave all the credit for her many striking ensembles to her fashion friends, admitting that she "doesn't know how to create a look."

In the lawless zone that was Westway during Fashion's Night Out, Supreme got Three 6 Mafia to chug-a-lug through their hits, 27 of them in 45 minutes. The soundtrack was a constant, perfect barrage of trunk-rattling crunk, push-shove music in an establishment so packed one could barely fight and/or breathe. Sweat dripped down the walls; champagne and cheap beer puddled on the floor. Three women bent and dipped and spread behind them, but Juicy J and DJ Paul stayed focused, as much as two half-lidded perma-stoners could.

Juicy asked, "Could we get some ladies up here? I mean, we've already got a couple, but can we get some more?" Some brave souls clambered up, dragging unwilling friends with them. "Leave her alone – she's scared," said Juicy of a blonde girl holding a pretty fancy clutch and her dignity. She ended up onstage, anyway, hugged by two of the Westway dancers. Jeff Rosenthal
