The rapper has always made it a point to be shocking, both in her lyrics and appearance. We have come to know her as the outrageous, bright color-wearing, Nicki Minaj. On the April cover of Elle Magazine, we were once again shocked by Miss Minaj when she stepped out looking more fashion forward than ever before. In Tom Ford, Minaj is nearly unrecognizable with blonde hair, dark roots and minimal makeup (in comparison to her previous neon colored looks). When the newest American Idol judge was asked about her Elle make-under, she said she felt “naked” without her false eyelashes and signature pink pout.
This new look is following the rumors that Minaj recently fired her “glam squad”, which included hairstylists Terrance Davidson and Oscar James and makeup artists Day Hill and Joyce Bonelli. Rumors that she also fired her stylist make us realize that the rapper is clearly on a mission to be taken more seriously.
“With me doing the clothing line now, it’s like I definitely don’t want people to think, ‘Oh, well, she’s only going to have crazy stuff in her line,” The line will be available this fall at select Kmart stores and online. We welcome Nicki’s new look with open arms.
What do you ladies think of her style transformation?
