Nicki Minaj's 2017 Met Gala Look Will Absolutely Turn Heads
Nicki Minaj has always been game for a little unconventional fashion.
Who could forget her colorful wigs, loud bodysuits, and days channeling the style of Japanese cosplayers in Harajuku?
So of course the self-proclaimed "Queen of Rap" had no problem sliding into an H&M design inspired by the Met Gala theme, "Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between." The exhibition, by Japanese designer, Rei Kawakubo, is about turning fashion into unconventional art.
Pernilla Wohlfahrt, H&M's Head of Design and Creative Director, shared in a press release:
It has been our honour at H&M to create these looks inspired by Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons, one of fashion's most important and influential designers. Each H&M look has been entirely custom-made, with both Kawakubo's creative world and the style of our guests in mind.
Looks like they hit Head Barb In Charge's style on the head.
Minaj, who was just sitting front row at H&M's see-now, buy-now spring 2017 show in March, took a page from Beyoncé's Met Gala handbook with a dramatic train this year. Everything else is all Onika, boasting her penchant for lots of detail therapy.
Black vinyl roses, a Swarovski crystal, a silk duchesse kimono top, and a leather Obi belt make this dress quite the party for the eyes.
Nicki absolutely worked the carpet and was an absolute vision in the red-and-black custom designed look. The belt, which cinched at the waist, showed off the flawless design of the red-and-black colored train that trailed behind Nicki as she made her way down the carpet and up into the night's event.
And to cap it all off, you could tell she felt as good as she looked.
