Last week Azealia Banks dropped the video for "Liquorice" looking equal parts all American sex symbol and bad bitch mercenary. And unlike Nicki Minaj before her, Banks' style is actually attainable. Check it out.

Hot dog optional

Unif the America Crochet Bikini, $64: I'm the biggest advocate for swimwear on dry land. Join the movement with some crochet patriotism.

Joia Fun in the Sunglasses, $12: Like smiley faces for your eyes, these sunglasses are so cheap they're practically disposable. Get drunk and forget them on someone's rooftop -- who cares?

High Waisted Denim Shorts, $18: Is anyone else bored to tears of plain jorts? Put a flag over your privates instead.

Eyes and Lips

Nail Rock Eye Tattos, $12: These stick on liners make getting a perfect cat eye like Banks's really easy and they're an affordable alternative to Dior's Velvet Eyes which basically sold out before they were even designed!

Too Faced Lipstick in Drop Dead Red, $20: I love this formula for a deep saturated blood red finish and it looks good on every skin tone somehow. Look, we tried it.

Benefit BADgal Liner, $20: Drag this deeply pigmented black liner along your lower lashes and smudge with the blendy end for Azealia-style under eyes.

NAKED FACE

Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Color Balm, $16: I use this thing every day actually. It makes nude lips possible for those with a Michael Jackson mouth like me. It also offers enough moisture that you don't need to start with clear balm.

Laura Mercier Nude Lip Glace, $24: Slick this non-sticky grilled salmon-colored gloss on top ad make your DSLs look twice as big.

Benefit sun Beam, $26: Paint this under eyebrows, along the tops of your cheekbones, on the center of your lips -- everywhere. Glow like you too were born in 1991!

Now if you want to take this whole thing too far -- and I do -- you can also learn the dance here.
