5 Things To Know This AM — Aug 10 2012

No one has managed to stir up controversy this summer quite like Azealia Banks. The Harlem rapper’s cover of the British magazine Dazed & Confused has already been banned in not one, not two, but seven countries. (Fashion Telegraph)
We're huge fans of IKEA (you know, once all the assembly work is said and done). Still, we're not sure we can imagine wearing this dress, made out of hundreds of bright blue IKEA bags. No offense to the Swedish store, of course — it's just that everyone would be stepping on our train all night. Also, we'd be wearing shopping bags. (Shine Yahoo)
When it comes to crush-worthy material, there are two things that always get us doodling hearts and hanging photos in our metaphorical locker: 1. A sense of style, and 2. A sense of humor. We already know Adam Scott is hilarious, but we had no idea he had such classically cool style, too. We are so putting him on our next MASH list. (The Cut)
Well, this is awkward. LOVE is being scrutinized (again) for copying an editorial. We want to give them the benefit of the doubt since we love LOVE, but those photos look suspiciously similar. (Fashion Copious)
Full disclosure: We're huge Anthropologie fans. After all, where else can you get a shelf that looks like it's been cut by a lumberjack and a dress seeming to have been hand-delivered by a pair of singing bluebirds? All jokes aside, we truly do love the whimsical chain. Still, we got a good laugh from this candid discussion on the infamously-twee store. (The Billfold)
