Nicki Minaj In Balmain – The Late Show With Stephen Colbert

Nicki Minaj In Balmain - The Late Show With Stephen Colbert

Stepping back into the spotlight, Nicki Minaj made a guest appearance on ‘The Late Show With Stephen Colbert’ on Monday (August 13), to promote her new album ‘Queen.’

Her Balmain Pre-Fall 2018 two-piece look showcases Olivier Rousteing’s penchant for pieces saturated in shimmering details and ornamented with the house’s signature buttons.

Reminiscent of a starry night sky, I wanted to love this look, but she loses me from the waist down, as I don’t find the skirt flattering on her.

You may remember that Lupita Nyong’o had more success with this look earlier this year.

Nicki Minaj In Oscar de la Renta – 2018 Met Gala

When Nicki Minaj wants to make a statement, she knows how to do it. Her look at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City speaks to that.

Seamlessly fusing her sensual style with the gala’s theme, she ensured all eyes were on her with this Oscar de la Renta ensemble and rosary-adorned headpiece. It almost looks like it’s aflame with the gradient tulle and sequined fabric.

As spellbinding as this is, one cannot help but think that her 2012 Grammy Awards look would’ve been perfect for this theme.

Nicki Minaj In Alexander Wang – 2017 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards

Nicki Minaj attended the 2017 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards on Monday (November 6) in the Brooklyn, New York as the guest of Alexander Wang.

As you would expect, her custom piece has an edge to it, but my feeling is that this look will split you into several camps.

Camp 1. Hideous.

Camp 2. Not something you favour, but believe this suits Nicki’s style and persona.

Camp 3. Would’ve been best suited for a performance piece not a Vogue event.

Camp 4. What are those hot pants all about?

Nicki Minaj In Oscar de la Renta – Harper’s BAZAAR Celebrates ‘ICONS By Carine Roitfeld’

After her Latex looks at the MTV Video Music Awards, I wasn’t sure what to expect next from Nicki Minaj on the red carpet.

But, she returned to her more glamorous ways at the Harper’s BAZAAR Celebrates ‘ICONS By Carine Roitfeld’ event on Friday (September 8) in New York City.

She actually took a far left turn in the glam lane, with this feminine and romantic Oscar de la Renta Fall 2017 gown that was void of a plunge, slit, mullet or body-con silhouette, all of which she tends to favour.

For that alone, I was drawn to the look.

But, given the crush of colourful embellishment already enlivening the dress, the jewels were completely unnecessary as they competed for the spotlight. Then again, Nicki was never one to be a minimalist.

Nicki Minaj In Vex Latex – 2017 MTV VMAs

I was under the impression that Nicki Minaj had shelved her cartoonish red carpet looks, but that wasn’t the case at the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday (August 27).

The rapper donned two custom Vex Latex looks; one in tribute to her Harajuku Barbie alter ego, the other to NFL referees.

While you might be thinking she looks ridiculous, I’m thinking she must have sweat buckets in these restrictive outfits.
