Nicki Minaj Played Dress UpJune 1st, 2010
Nicki took a break from the Barbie gimmicks. Game Over?
Just days after we mused over the Barbie-licious sneak peek of Nicki Minaj’s latest magazine cover, the femcee remixed her style on us! Over the holiday Nicki hit Miami to preform in the “Best of the Best” concert lineup at Bicentennial Park and the real life doll played dress up–which for her meant toning down her usual and wearing a polished look for a change.
Nicki took the stage with her new manager Diddy in a curve-hugging gray dress (with sleeves and a neckline that didn’t have her girls out! Gasp!) but still kept her signature funk with spiky bracelets, square sunglasses that hid her signature splashy makekup and an orange wig.
I really like this more grown-up version of Nicki! I wonder if Diddy had anything to do with the transformation? If you ever watched Making the Band you might remember how hard he went on “fixing” Danity Kane’s image during their heyday (they looked better for it too!). Whoever is responsible for the style change, I hope we see more like it in the future. After all, the original Barbie had hundreds of different outfits for every occasion!
