Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Nicki Minaj managed to find a gown as loud as her personality for the 2012 American Music Awards held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in California on Sunday evening.

She wore a gorgeous lime-green draped trumpet gown from Monique Lhuillier’s Resort 2013 collection.

The gown was styled with a stunning statement necklace and an equally OTT cocktail ring.

Curly blonde tresses, a different colour polish on each nail and her signature bright-pink lip colour completed her look.

With all the effort that Nicki went to to style this look, you would’ve thought that her stylist would’ve done some homework on this gown.

You may remember that Julie Bowen wore this same gown almost exactly two months ago to the 2012 Emmy Awards.

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.

Nicki Minaj wanted to ensure that she was the talking point of the 2012 Grammy Awards.

Congrats. Mission accomplished.

She wore a one-of-a-kind scarlet satin Versace robe with the label’s signature Medusa head emblazoned across the skirt.

Matching short sequin-embellished gloves completed her look, which is more ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ than an attempt at religious chic.

The most shocking thing about this look is Versace’s involvement as I’m totally numb to Nicki’s and Lady Gaga’s antics.

Nicki Minaj and M.I.A joined Madonna on stage to perform ‘Give Me All Your Luvin’, during the Super Bowl XLVI half-time Show at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana last night.

The rappers complemented Madonna’s Givenchy Couture look by wearing colour-block studded dresses with their initials emblazoned on the front, which was created by Italian designer Fausto Puglisi.

Nicki, who was sporting a white wig, wore custom knee-high black and gold Giuseppe Zanotti boots, fishnet tights, a gold choker and spiral cuffs, whilst M.I.A’s look was just as sexed up with a studded leather harness, fishnet tights and thigh-high black suede boots.

Both ladies wore beautiful Egyptian-style Erickson Beamon headpieces.

M.I.A. caused a bit of a stir by flipping the bird during her verse, but it wasn’t that shocking when you compare it to Janet Jackson’s wardrobe malfunction.

Simply elegance was the winner this week, as you voted for Gillian Anderson who wore a white vintage Dior gown to InStyle Magazine’s 10th Anniversary Party.

It was the best she’s ever looked on the red carpet. Her beauty, much like those emerald Adler earrings, really shone through.

I went in the total opposite direction by voting for Nicki Minaj.

The singer donned an Oscar de la Renta Spring 2012 gown to the 2011 American Music Awards

Many of you wish she’d donned a black wig with this look. I’m glad she didn’t.

I love that she stayed true to herself wearing this sophisticated gown with her trademark pink wig whilst adding an edgy touch via her Alexander McQueen armour wedge sandals.

Nicki Minaj was spotted in the press room at the 2011 American Music Award which were held at the Nokia Theatre LA Live in California last night.

The singer is the first celebrity to wear a look from the Oscar de la Renta Spring 2012 collection. Yes, you read that right.

I’m not surprised considering the singer was front row at the designer’s show back in September.

The two-time winner looked stunning wearing an emerald silk-taffeta gown with black battenburg lace and broderie anglaise bodice.

I know many of you aren’t fans of the mullet dress or Nicki’s sense of style, but I think she surprisingly pulls off this glamorous look with some style. I can’t fault her.

The rise-and-fall hemline allows her Alexander McQueen armour wedge sandal to share the spotlight.

Pink spiral curls with a matching matte lip colour completed her look.
