She is the diva of the new age hip hop era of music, absolute with transposable extensions and giving fashion an eccentric definition. Although many might snub Nicki Minaj’s gimmicky sense of style but you can’t ignore how she distinctly maintains her place in the mainstream music industry.
Although her style might seem a cut between artists like “Lil Kim” and current pop sensation “Lady Gaga”, Minaj puts her own seal of originality on to her style. Her wardrobe seems to have taken inspiration from Barbie dolls and Harajuku. She is often labeled as the Harajuku Barbie with immense love of pink reflecting in almost all her clothes, nails, hair and even her wigs. She is one of those extreme women who aren’t afraid of showing off their assets. Her style has evolved from street to Avant Garde. Her will to experiment fearlessly puts her on one of the most experimented style successes.
Seen here at one of the music award functions, Minaj maintains her bold statement through her way of dressing up. She is wearing a white fur long coat which in a peculiar way works for her look. She had teamed it up with a strapless dark beige colored short dress with black lines running perpendicular giving her toned down look. Although her dressing sense has always been of an oddball, but this combination is far more subtle than her extravagant looks. But her multicolored hair maintained the typical Minaj style statement. The nude studded pumps go well with the ensemble. The hair is straight and colored halfway and the makeup is basic with emphasis on eyes and lips.
Minaj never gets stuck up with one particular look. Her freedom of expression comes from her crazy styling and she does not mind being appreciated or even criticized for it.
