With a well-received judging gig on American Idol, and a new hairstylist to boot, it’s been practically impossible not to notice a recent change in Nicki Minaj’s appearance.
The once pink haired, over the top make-up wearing, costume donning
rapstress many have grown accustomed to, seems to have ditched the
“gimmick” for a dialed back beauty and style regimen.
At her MAC event in Beverly Hills, Nicki opted for a flirty white Alexander McQueen Textured Stretch-Knit Dress and Fendi Fendista pumps. Her makeup skewed soft and simple. Her wig was blonde with dark roots (presumably for a more natural effect).
When it came time to dress for the Elton John Oscar Viewing Party, Ms. Minaj bet on white again, this time shimmering in an embellished Roberto Cavalli number.
The new look seems refreshing, but who can forget Nicki’s outlandish past?
I am enjoying the more demure side of Nicki Minaj, there are folks who
are a bit disappointed. It seems they miss her theatrics, and her
over-the-top ensembles. They’re simply not on board with the new look.
What do you think? Are you into the toned down Nicki Minaj?
