Style Stars - Nicki Minaj

From Ratchet To Regular, The Fashion Transformation of Nicki Minaj

b2ap3_thumbnail_nicki_mac_lip_gloss.png

Onika Tanya Maraj, known by her stage name Nicki Minaj is a Trinidadian-born American rapper, singer-songwriter and television personality. Born in Saint James, Port of Spain and raised in Jamaica, Queens New York City.  After success with three mixtapes released between 2007 and 2009, Minaj signed to Young Money Entertainment.

Minaj is known for wearing outlandish costumes and wigs, which leads to comparisons to Lady Gaga, and is often called "the black Lady Gaga".  Alexander McQueen, Versace and Christian Louboutin as her favourite designers.

The Huffington Post described Minaj's fashion as "risk-taking", "bold sartorial choices", and "far-out” with Yahoo commenting that her costume was "colourful", "crazy" and stated that "the world would certainly be very quiet without Ms Minaj". Nicki Minaj has been invited to attend various events for fashion designers. Donatella Versace  invited Minaj to perform for the launch of the collaboration of Versace for H&M alongside Prince. She also performed “Super Bass" at a Victoria Secret fashion show in November 2011.

On twitter and in public appearances and interviews, Nicki Minaj refers to her fans as "Barbz" and her male following as "Boyz" and "Ken Barbz," respectively, alluding to her "Harajaku Barbie" persona. I hope she teaches them a thing or two because these fans dress just as crazy as her.

Nicki Minaj fronts Elle Magazine this April sporting a very sexy but relatively simple Tom Ford jacket and American Apparel leggings, in a shoot styled by Joe Zee.  The fresh-faced rapper has been toning down her looks as of late, showing up to an American Idol All-Star party in a simple black lace dress and toning down the flash of her once hair-raising wig choices.  But how will Minaj’s  “Barbz”  take to her more mainstream approach to fashion?

Below are some of her worst outfits ever and my personal fav.

NO NO NO Nicki! I have no idea what gave her the idea to go out dressed like this. Too many layers in the first picture and she looks like a bag of skittles in the other.

I love the dress on the left because of its bright colours and patterns. The black dress is very classy because of the lace design and she has kept that  'hood' style with the big chain necklace and bracelets.
