Singer Nicki Minaj has made it known that she wants to make her mark in the fashion world with more than just her flamboyant outfits. The Starship hitmaker already has a nail polish range with OPI in addition to signing a lucrative endorsement deal with cosmetic giants MAC. However, she’s been dreaming of something else for the last two years, namely, her own fragrance. The style icon’s hard work finally bore fruit as she proudly launched her scent “Pink Friday” at Macy’s Herald Square in New York City on September 24.
Nicki Minaj Launches Perfume “Pink Friday”
Nicki said that she knew what she was going to call the perfume a long time ago but that the design for the bottle was something she had not thought about much until the fragrance company asked her about it. She jokingly stated that she wanted one of her trademark wigs on it, and the talented designers obliged. Fans of Minaj will freak out when they get a glimpse of the bottle which is actually a replica of her – pink wig included!
It’s no surprise that the bottle was more of a crowd-puller than the scent itself, which, by the way has floral notes in addition to vanilla and a bit of musk. You can only buy it at Macy’s right now but soon it will be available at other stores too.
The excited rapper sported a wavy blonde wig for her big day topped off with a glossy pink hat. The rest of her ensemble was just as colorful, featuring a low-cut, rainbow-inspired bra top with frill detailing, striped blue-and-white pants and a pink jacket. She accessorized with gold hoop earrings and a blue booties. Black nail polish, pink lipstick, fake lashes and glittery eye shadow completed her look.
