Singer Nicki Minaj arrived at the 40th Annual American Music Awards at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California on November 18 in an over-the-top evening gown that was the perfect reflection of her flamboyant personality.
What she wore:
Neon lime dress from Monique Lhuillier’s Resort 2013 collection

Nicki played on one of the biggest trends of the year in a strapless, figure-hugging neon lime green gown with a flared skirt that also featured an asymmetrical train.

Her jewellery choice was very interesting – a cocktail ring and matching necklace in almost-psychedelic colors.
Hair and Makeup:
Voluminous curls; heavy eye makeup

We were surprised by how understated (well, relatively) her makeup was. But even Nicki knows that her regular makeup palette would look garish with such a statement color. The usual pink lippie that she sports was toned down a few notches – still pink but much more subtle. A matching hue graced her cheeks while her dramatic eye makeup with fake lashes and blue eye shadow were the only bits of her makeup which bespoke her regular outlandish style.
The diva’s blonde wig was styled in retroesque voluminous curls which made as much of a statement as the dress itself.
All in all, this was an outspoken ensemble.
