Confession: I used to be a die-hard Nicki Minaj fan. Name one of her older songs and I can likely recite a verse like a poem. However, in the past year or so I have stopped listening to her music (apart from Anaconda, because you have to love that just for the sheer hilarity of it) but that doesn’t mean that I don’t keep up to date with her.
Keeping up to date with her now means keeping track of what she is wearing. Nicki has an outrageous style, or used to, that has gotten her lots of attention in the past. I’m not sure she is really thought of as someone with good taste or classic style, but she is thought of as someone to watch. Although she is playing it a little more safe now, which is doing her wonders. She looks good and that is undeniable.
This month she has landed herself the cover of Dazed & Confused magazine’s AW issue. Well, two covers really. One side is the classical beauty in a Chanel suit, looking prim and proper. On the other she is clad in La Perla underwear and Miu Miu rain boots and coat. Below, I have linked the article. It is a good read and features stunning shots of Nicki. I especially love the one where she is in the Balmain dress and the other where she is in the Marc Jacobs: she wears it better than the model did. Take a read.
