Nigerian-American rapper Wale strikes a captivating pose with famous model Bar Refaeli and designer Diane Von Furstenberg in a photo spread of Harper’s Bazaar fashion magazine February issue. The D.C native has become one of the few rappers to feature in the leading fashion mag.

According to NecholeBitchie, ‘the shoot, photographed by Terry Richardson, represents a play on words with the magazine pegging DVF “the original wrapper,” for popularizing the wrap dress design close to  40 years ago’

Would Wale be able to let his fans into his rap world while tagging with Bar and DVF to revive the old-school wrap dresses? Are we going to see a more fashionable Wale this new year?

Well, the star took to Instagram to express his joy, thanking the designer, the hot model and the mag for giving him a chance of a life time (side pic)
