Nicki Minaj In H&M – 2017 Met Gala

Nicki Minaj went for broke at the 2017 Met Gala with a truly over-the-top look on Monday (May 1).

The singer wore a custom H&M gown, which left many people saying, really? H&M?

Here I have been complaining about people not leaning in to the night’s theme enough, and now we have Nicki, and I’m still not happy. There is just way too much going on here, and I find it to be very tastelessly executed.

The asymmetry, the kimono-inspired detailing, the beading, the train, the belt–I am super confused. Is she a super hero? A video game vixen? A lingerie model? It’s all too much, and I simply can’t stand it.

Let me hear from you: Am I being too harsh on this get-up?

    Hahahahaha. Girl, NO. The SM party was downtown Manhattan, you got wrong address.

    You are certainly not being too harsh. Nicki’s style always leaves something to be desire for me and in this case I am left wanting a skirt, or pants, or bottoms of some kind.

    A wild guess: The sewing team at HM picked up the leftover fabric from SJP’s 2015 dress and made Nicki this one,totally echos with the H&M consicence campaign.
    No more needs to be said about the design as there is no such thing in the first place.
    her hair and makeup are flawless tho

    Nicki looks beyond gorgeous but what she’s wearing is trash.

      “What she’s wearing is trash” LOL. I agree.

    This is a Dracula costume with a Darth Vader belt buckle. This had to be said.

    I loved this from the back but then when I saw the front… eeeek. Just so much going on

    Very cheap and shame on HM. I see they tried to include Rei’s face, but this is so tacky

    You are not being too harsh. This is a mess. I want to like it but can’t.

    Your not being harsh at all. This is ugly and silly and cheap looking. ick.

    Nicki Minaj clearly doesn’t know the politics of fashion, or else she would have chosen an A-List designer. Last year’s Moschino was embarrassing for someone who considers herself on the same level as Beyonce, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift…

    Sasha Lane wore H&M and hers didn’t look cheap like this mess.

    If I don’t focus on all it at once, it’s not that bad.

    I wouldn’t pay $19.99 at H&M for that – what’s with avant guard going costume tonight – what a mess.

    I love that so many people chose what might be called more accessible brands, can’t wait to see rest of your coverage.

      But H&M custom make this stuff with fabric they wouldn’t normally use. This doesn’t look remotely like it would fall apart after one wearing… It also doesn’t look remotely intesting so I don’t think it will do much publicity-wise.
