Lady in RED [Nicki Minaj @ 2011 AMA in Oscar de la Renta + Alexander McQueen]
Who would have thought that Nicki Minaj would ever wear a dress by Oscar de la Renta and that it would actually look good?! At the 2011 American Music Awards, Nicki hit the red carpet wearing a black and green gown from de la Renta's spring 2012 collection. She finished the look with a sick pair of platform wedges from the Alexander McQueen fall 2011 runway. I am pleasantly surprised by how well this look works for Nicki. It's much more sophisticated, but it still has an edgy street appeal. Her hair and make-up is a different story? I don't think I'll ever get over her colorful wigs and geisha make-up, but Nicki gets an A+ from the neck down.
