Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Stand Out/Avant-Garde Award
Nicki Minaj attended the 2011 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas last night.

The quirky singer always likes to make a big bold fashion statement, so I’m not surprised she opted for this Mark Fast Spring 2011 jumpsuit.

Her baby blue knit jumpsuit with embellished details was slightly modified with the waist panels filled in and the off-the-shoulder details removed.

White Versace lace up sandals and her favourite pink lippie completed her look.

For her performance, Nicki changed her pink curly wig for a blonde bob wig.

She also changed into a white Mark Fast knit dress with a Gareth Pugh Spring 2009 jacket.

Her jacket with the wide lapels was once again modified as it had solid black panels compared to the tiled runway version.

Britney also joined Nicki for a performance, which will explain why Brit Brit was M.I.A. on the red carpet for this event.

Nicki’s 3rd look of the night was the most demure we’ve ever seen her. She wore a black satin jumpsuit with a black blazer and black strappy Louboutin’s.

When Emma Stone and Nicki Minaj start to look a bit… similar—attention must be paid.

We’re not speaking of the platinum manes and big baby blues—it’s the electric pink hue slathered across the lips of the comedic actress and risqué rapper, as they were recently spotted rocking a look remarkably reminiscent of what we scoped on the Spring 2011 catwalks. (Who knew they even paid attention to the collections?!)

Variations of ‘pop art pink’ pouts popped up on both sides of the Atlantic; a matte fluorescent fuchsia at Diane Von Furstenberg in New York, and scintillant Schipparelli pink at Jil Sander and Fendi in Milan.

While the red carpet versions are a bit more muted and slightly shinier, the shock value remains the same.

Nicki Minaj performed at the ‘Runway to Green’ event held at Christie’s Auction House in New York City last night.

The singer performed in a head-to-toe Alexander Wang look which included ‘Dakota’ boots, and a unique silver hand accessory which the models sported on the runway.

Usually the Nicki lets her clothes do all the talking, but the colour explosion this time came from her hair and her bright pink lips.

With the event’s title being ‘Runway to Green’ we shouldn’t be surprised to see the playful singer sporting green hair.

This Is How You Stand Out On The Red Carpet At The Grammy’s Award
On the red carpet at the 2011 Grammy Awards Nicki Minaj said that Givenchy had made the leopard print look especially for her.

I guess she’s not a regular reader of Style.com, because this look was presented during the Givenchy Fall 2007 Couture presentation.

I have to say I love this look. It’s crazy, fun and perfect for the Grammy’s.

She’s having a lot of fun with fashion and I really love her energy and creativity.

Last week MTV premiered Nicki Minaj’s new video for her latest single “Moment 4 Life.”

The flamboyant singer wore a look from The Blonds Spring 2011 collection.

The turquoise goddess chiffon gown with crystal accents played perfectly into the Cinderella themed music video.

The video starts with Nicki wearing the chiffon gown, with a black wig and a bejeweled headpiece whilst sitting in front of an ornate dressing table before the song begins.

She then goes onto make several costume changes before the wedding scene with Drake.

The Grammy Awards takes place in 2 weeks time. I’m sure Nicki will take to the red carpet wearing a look which will be much more over the top than this.
