You know how people say it’s a shame to spend all that money on clothes and still look a mess? Add Nicki Minaj to the list of high-priced wardrobe offenders.
We all know the rapper’s style is a little…different, but how much does it cost to look like like rainbow brite on the runway? Well, in the latest issue of Vogue, Nicki said:
“At one time I was spending $ 50,000 a month on Giuseppe, Versace, YSL, and Fendi shoes. And I bought tons of Louis Vuitton bags.”
Nicki’s newly acquired expensive taste screams new money and she knows it. She told the mag, “When you’re a young girl from Queens, you’re going to stock up on those bags.”
As we’ve seen from throwback pics, Nicki wasn’t always so bold or feminine when it came to her appearance but she explained to the magazine what caused her to change her style.
“I was dressing in Tommy Hilfiger baggy shirts and Boss jeans, but then I met a person who dressed like a tiny lady – pantsuits, heels, lots of makeup. I thought she was larger than life,” Nicki said. “She once did my makeup – I had never seen myself made up before. I didn’t want to wash it off; I felt like I had one day to live this fantasy of being a glamour girl.”
Well now Nicki gets to live out that fantasy every single day—at least until her 15 minutes are up.
How do you feel about Nicki Minaj’s style and her expensive luxury bag addiction?
