Iggy Azalea Performs in Milan

Australian rapper appears at Philipp Plein show.

IGGY POPS: Bethann Hardison, who leads the Diversity Coalition urging more racial diversity on catwalks, may be pleased to know Swiss designer Philipp Plein selected only black models, including Liya Kebede and Alek Wek, to walk the show in Milan on Saturday night.

The event kicked off with Australian rapper Iggy Azalea accompanied by two hip-hop dancers. Like Cinderella on a deadline, she fled the venue as soon as the first model took the catwalk.
