Iggy Azalea doesn't approve of people wearing socks with sandals.

The 'Work' hitmaker has expressed her dissatisfaction with a number of campaign images posted on tumblr from her collaboration with Steve Madden, in which models are seen wearing garish white socks with her sandal and peep-toe shoe designs.

In Twitter posts she's now deleted, she wrote: "@SteveMadden kinda ruined the creative direction when u added those gross extra pictures to a random tumblr page I had no part in creating.

"I worked really hard on the creative direction of both the shoes and the shoot I WAS involved with and in. I really feel it's been tainted with these God awful images that Steve madden took appon themselves to create and share without my knowledge. Gross gross gross.

"Ivd been bamboozled with a tumblr page where everyone wears socks and takes unintentional crotch shots on pool toys. I'm in shock (sic)."

However, the 24-year-old star has since spoken out to clarify that while she's not happy with the images she wasn't consulted on, she is "incredibly proud" of her collection and the approved campaign.

Writing alongside an image of herself modelling a pair of blue and white heels on Instagram, she said: "For the record: I absolutely LOVE these images, they were from the shoot I directed for my Steve Madden campaign. I'm incredibly proud of the shoes we've made together, as well as these images that I've been anxiously waiting to share with you all.

"What I had a 'rant' about on Twitter isn't regards to these pictures, it was about another, different set of images i wasn't a part of creating that I felt weren't reflective of my vision and direction for the collection.

"I'm an artist and I'm extremely passionate and emotional and crazy sometimes because I care ALOoOoot about this s**t! I love Steve and he gets it! Artists clash sometimes, it doesn't mean I dislike the brand.

"I love Steve Madden as an individual and as a company ... Sorry for the drama! I didn't mean for it to turn into some big blog situation (as usual) but I'm not gonna sit back and totally let Steve Madden get dragged under the bus because as a whole they're awesome people. I just don't support neoprene Jesus sandals WITH socks. That all. (sic)"
