Nicki Minaj at #NYFW Prabal Gurung 2012 Runway Show

Not surprisingly, Nicki Minaj is making her own [bold] statements during Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week.  She attended the Prabal Gurung 2012 Runway Show this afternoon and went all out in a Betsey Johnson tutu, Shojono Tomo rainbow leggings (3990.0 Japanese Yen = $51.44 US Dollar), pink/purple/turquoise leotard, and blue suede Giuseppe Zanotti suede wedge pumps. She accessorized with a hot pink pretzel necklace by Onch, multi-colored bangle bracelets, and an over-sized pink bow.

I think she looks perfectly adorable… I mean, it’s NY Fashion Week! Now is the time to be “over the top,” you know?  I only wonder if folks were able to pay attention to the main event with Nicki sitting in the front row (alongside model Elettra Wiedemann) in this showstopping ensemble.

Following the show, Nicki tweeted: “Ok so the new Prabal Gurung collection is to die for. Just left his fashion show. Gagging! My lovely date John Demsey of MAC was adorable!”

  1. I actually like her tights. And her pumps.

    Well, at least she’s having fun. Elettra next to her looks so chic! I worked with John Demsey when I was at Estee Lauder. Small world

    That is really over the top! I guess she is an entertainer and can get away with that look. If I saw her on the street I would think she was manic!!

    Love the pieces but not all together. I think her outfit was a bit misplaced for a fashion show. It’s like a guest trying to upstage the bride by wearing a wedding dress too.

      Yeah, that was my thought too. It’s like, dude, you’re cute and all… but why you trying to steal the show!!? Lmaoo!!! Ehh well, that’s Nicki I guess. She wouldn’t be herself if she came in a quiet, conservative little outfit.

  5. Shey says:

    I think she looks like an idiot. Her style comes off to me as just wanting attention. reminds me of gaga

    • yakini says:

      LOL!!!! I agree with you that she is definitely looking for attention in this outfit. And she’s got it. Look at that… images of her all over the web in this get-up, with far fewer of the actual runway show. *smh*

  6. *sigh*…..I wanna root for her fashion then she fails me. Welp..I liked the eye shadow. LOL
