Nicki Minaj- 2012 Style Report

I am OBSESSED with Nicki Minaj. I love everything about her, from her music to her style to her genuine personality (I've watched her 'My Time Now' documentary at least 8 times). 2012 has seen her career rise to unprecedented levels. She's had features with just about everyone imaginable in the rap and hip-hop industry. With the release of her second album, Pink Friday Roman Reloaded, which is now certified platinum in the US, we've seen Nicki rock some incredible outfits. Here's a few I'm absolutely obsessed with...

So this is Nicki at London's Wireless Festival which I went to and LOVED. When she came out, she looked to die for... I love that she is one of the only people that could ever pull of this type of outfit. It's quirky, unique and kiddy with a touch of "hood".



When I saw this outfit at the begining of the 'Right By My Side' video I was in SHOCK. Nicki looks SO good in... well... what looks like pyjamas with crystal Louboutins! Could she be trying to tell us that she's both down-to-Earth and glamorous at the same time?

So this is a 2011 look but I thought it was too good to not remember. The baby blue, chiffon gown designed by The Blonds was the perfect pick for Nicki in the 'Moment for Life' video with Drake. The plunging cleavage, cut out sides and sapphire crystals accentuated her figure well. Princess much?




'I Am Your Leader' is Nicki's third track on her new album and the video just dropped today! I was blown away with the boots she was wearing in the tub... they were BAD! Her hair also looked gorgeous and natural as she wore the shiny black bustier dress.

As we approach the end of 2012, Nicki has certainly left her mark with her remarkable 'Pound The Alarm' video. Filmed in Trinidad, the carnival spirit was everywhere with hundreds of dancers in beautiful, feathery costumes. The star of the show, however, was unmissable in red as she sported her trademark high-waisted black hotpants with fishnet tights, cute silver sandals and a jewelled black bra with massive gold chains. Those who know a bit about Nicki's background would know this video meant a lot to her as it was filmed where she spent the majority of her childhood. It was bound to happen and when it did, it happened with a bang!
