Nicki Minaj In Oscar de la Renta – 2011 American Music Awards

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.

Who Wore Mark Fast Better? Nicki Minaj or Jessie J

Nicki Minaj donned this baby-blue Mark Fast Spring 2011 jumpsuit when she took to the red carpet at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards back in May.

The singer added white strappy platform sandals and an attention-grabbing bubblegum-pink wig.

British singer Jessie J wore the very same jumpsuit last week for the ‘Demons Never Die’ London premiere.

She wore the jumpsuit with a nude t-shirt, a fur jacket, and comfortable gold brogues, having just had her foot cast removed.

Whilst the look is perfect for both singers’ eccentric style, Nicki wore it better.

Jessie loses out because of the nude t-shirt and the fur coat.

2011 BET Awards Red Carpet

The 2011 BET Awards was held at The Shrine Auditorium in LA yesterday.

Kerry Washington: The actress wore an acid green Michael Kors column gown. I love the colour which is perfect for this red carpet on a sunny day. With that in mind I have to ask, “why black pumps?” Gold strappy sandals would’ve worked so much better to complement her Kotur clutch, belt, gold Lana jewelry and the halter ring detail. I will never understand her decision to opt for black pumps on this occasion.

Keri Hilson: Whilst Kerry opted for a summery look, Keri’s had a Fall feel to it. The singer wore a bicolour Tibi purple and black strapless jumpsuit with black open-toe sandals. She accessorized with gold sculptural Ann Taylor cuffs, a Judith Leiber ‘Ridged Rectangle’ leopard printed haircalf minaudière, a Carla Amorim ring and a gold necklace with a green pendant.

Alicia Keys: The singer opted for zebra print Christian Louboutin Daffodil pumps to match her monochromatic Dolce & Gabbana look. Wilfredo Rosado fine jewelry and a fishtail plait completed her look.

Keke Palmer: I’m not quite sure how Mandalay continues to get away with ripping off other designers. Keke’s silver paneled dress is a total rip off from a Balmain Fall 2009 dress.

Kelly Rowland: The UK X Factor judge opted for a Notte by Marchesa fuchsia dress with a cascading ruffle detail which we’ve seen a few times on the red carpet. Her beautiful dress was paired with nude Jimmy Choo ‘Bisson’ heels.

Nicki Minaj: Of all looks at this event, Nicki was the one that made me itch the most. The singer wore a Mark Fast knit dress, with thick tights and black booties in that searing heat?

Nicki Minaj In Mark Fast & Gareth Pugh – 2011 Billboard Music 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.
