Rumours have struck that controversial singer M.I.A will be the new face of Versace and possibly collaborating with the effervescent fashion house.
Previous rumours suggested that Lana Del Ray would be taking the role however now it appears M.I.A with be the lucky lady.
The gossip began following an artist talk at MoMA PS1 in New York on Sunday, when she projected an image of her desktop to the audience, showing folders entitled “Versace Prints” , “Bootleg Versace”, and “Versace Outlines” so either a collaboration is in the pipeline or she is a bit of a die-hard fan.
The British singer is infamous for breaking boundaries and making very controversial political statements through her music which we think is very fitting for Versace.
The singer did not confirm the rumours however did not deny them.
M.I.A is a fan of the brand attending events such as the Altelier Versace Show in Paris, sporting Versace inspired clothing.
M.I.A. began her career in 2000 as a visual artist, filmmaker and designer in West London before beginning her recording career in 2002, she has since released three albums and walked away with a number of Awards such as Best Alternative Album at Groovelot Music & Fashion Awards in 2005 and Best Female Hip-Hop Artist at the BET Awards in 2009.
Lets hope the rumours are true, we would love to see such a stunning and free spirit collaborating with one of our favourite designers!
