Nicki Minaj In Nanette Lepore – MAC Cosmetics Viva Glam Party

Last night, on the penultimate day of New York Fashion Week, MAC Cosmetics held a party in honour of their newest Viva Glam ambassadors, Nicki Minaj and Ricky Martin.

The event, held at 37 Studios in Manhattan, celebrated the launch of the newest MAC Viva Glam makeup line, which donates 100 percent of its profits to the MAC AIDS Fund.

Nicki surprised me by wearing a look from the Nanette Lepore Spring 2012 collection.

I would’ve expected her to opt for something more shocking, but she was well-dressed in a striped button-down dress and a matching blazer.

Complementary Giuseppe Zanotti heels and a stack of bracelets on both wrists completed her look.

    That wig, and her makeup ruins the entire look…. I can’t rock wit’ that wig….

      That is what frustrates me about Nicki Minaj, she can afford the best hair stylist but she insist on wearing a wig that’s further away from her original hairline.

    LOVE this look on her, the best she’s looked in a while… the shoes were perfect!

    See Nicki, this is how you shock people. Now pass that on to Lady Gaga.

    Finally! Something stylish from this woman!

    The wig and makeup are a joke i’m sure so i’ll just ignore them.

    She looks like an anime refuge. The wig is just atrocious.

    Finally she’s sacked the make-up artist responsible for that terrible countouring-of-the-nose fiasco she was rocking for a while there. She actually looks good here!

    So we’re just gna ignore that ratchet wig because everything else is actually well put together??…..okay i guess we can give her a pass this time

    I finally like something she’s wearing! Hopefully she will keep it up! Can’t wait til she changes into a more mature dresser and tame the hair.

    Awful wig. Prefer the dress without the jacket. She can do better…

  11. jas February 17, 2012 at 05:45 #

    i think this is the best i’ve ever seen her

    Anybody else see Dolly Parton?

    I must say that this time I really like the way she’s dressed. It’s such a nice outfit. And the shoes… lovely!

  14. Lalitha February 17, 2012 at 08:36 #

    Minus the wig, she looks cute in the outfit. It’s so bright that I can’t help but feel cheerful despite the grey rain outside my window!

  15. EmmaWoodhouse February 17, 2012 at 12:44 #

    Too much stripes. I think I would have preferred the jacket over the blue skirt…plus that wig is ridiculous.

  16. D February 17, 2012 at 12:48 #

    ruined it!

  17. Errun February 17, 2012 at 12:55 #

    Would have loved the look straight off from the runway..the way she teamed the striped jacket with stirped dress..it’s a little too much of stripes happening..she looks like a STRIPEDZILLA!

    • Nat39 February 17, 2012 at 17:49 #

      Ditto. But if she wanted to wear the striped dress then shoud’ve opted for a solid colour jacket. This is too stripy and when combined with that wig makes it look kinda silly and a tad clownish.

    Hate to admit but I kinda like this look

  19. Dhppy February 17, 2012 at 19:27 #

    Love it. Fantastic shoe choice.

  20. Carolina Roq February 18, 2012 at 00:06 #

    She’s ridiculous. Someone who has butt implants doesn’t deserve respect.
