Singer Nicki Minaj always stands out, even when she’s trying to tone it down. A case in point is her look at the “American Idol” Premiere Event held at the Royce Hall of UCLA in Westwood, California on January 9.

Nicki looked great in a yellow, pink and black color-blocked dress and animal print ankle-straps. Her wig that day was also quite sober – a platinum blonde straight-combed affair.
The ensemble was, you have to admit, very unlike Nicki’s usual flamboyant ones. However, her makeup still reflected her fiercely-independent persona that we’ve come to know and accept.

Her patent fake eyelashes are a given, of course. Her peepers were further enhanced by pretty blue eye shadow. Contrasting the color beautifully was a pop of bright Barbie pink on her lips and a plum-hued blush on her cheeks.

The pink especially is a shade that Nicki loves to death and she sports it almost all the time while the blue goes well with her fun, expressive, youthful personality.
