She's known for her outspoken lyrics and Twitter wars, and Azealia Banks has now added yet another edge to her wild child status.
The 21-year-old rapper showed off an eyecatching new look as she stepped out in Paris on Wednesday night, sporting emerald green locks.
Flowing all the way down her back, the curled mane gave the hip-hop star the look of a mermaid emerging from the sea.

And the 212 hitmaker seemed thrilled with the results of her new hairstyle, explaining to her Twitter followers that she thought her zany new look resembled 'the earth'.
She tweeted: 'Ok so my emerald and sapphire weave is looking like the earth right now. #EARTHWEAVE.'
Showcasing her new locks for the first time, Azealia let her hair do the talking by keeping it plain and simple in a black bodycon dress as she attended Thierry Mugler's Paris Fashion Week show.

Before adding: 'I love Paris so much. :).'

Although the New Yorker's hair certainly looked eye-catching, having her locks tended to seems to be a somewhat time-consuming activity.
Writing on her Twitter page earlier this week, she said: 'It literally takes ten hours Everytime I get my hair done.'
The star is currently awaiting the release of her second single, Esta Noche.
