Style to Steal or Girl, Stop: Nicki Minaj
Nicki’s got a lot to be amped about these days. She garnered herself some very exciting Grammy nominations yesterday, including a nod for Best New Artist! I know Lil Kim is somewhere steaming at all this success, preparing her next diss record (kidding!). But while she is doing good with all that career wise, let’s see if her outfit to last night’s Grammy Nominations Concert was a winner or a loser.
The woman of many personalities came to the event decked out in a skintight blue dress that gave her a lot of lift (if you know what I mean), and accessorized the look with a pair of multi-colored neon pumps, an iced-out watch and bracelet, as well as her signature “Barbie” necklace (did you notice her nails matched her dress?). Up top, she went for a pink wig with blonde tips and those blunt bangs we’re so used to. I tell ya, nobody rocks a wig like Nicki does these days…
So I must say, I do like this look on her. I think the color is beautiful, and for once her wig isn’t overly distracting. The shoes are a smart choice as they match in a way, but also add a bit of extra neon pop to her already bright ensemble. The makeup is fresh with her signature lip shade, and she just looks…normal. And that’s not actually a bad thing Nicki! The over-the-top-tacky-to-look-cool-gimmick thing can get pretty annoying actually, so I’m a fan of this toned down version of her. A very colorful look for a very colorful artist. I’d steal it (just maybe not so tight dress wise). But what do you think? Steal it, or stop it?
