Nicki Minaj provides an eyeful in Paris.
Taking over the City of Lights for Fashion Week, Nicki Minaj stepped out in an attention-grabbing look on Friday (March 3).
Rocking only a pastie on her left breast, the Queen of the Barbz revealed the daring ensemble at the Haider Ackermann fashion show and in front of the Eiffel Tower.
The sexy and bold outfit consisted of Givenchy shorts, a Mugler top, shoes by Alexandre Vauthier, and a pastie by Agent Provocateur. Accessorizing her look, Nicki wore rings by Pristine and clear purple shades by Veronique Leroy.
Some were quick to point out the similarities to Nicki’s longtime foe, Lil’ Kim, who famously wore a left-breast-exposed ensemble to the MTV Video Music Awards in 1999. Just days before Nicki wore this to Paris, Kim spoke about the iconic fashion statement with Billboard.
“If I wore that same damn outfit to the club, you would look at me like I’m a damn fool,” she said. “People still say, ‘Put that purple outfit back on!’ That’s bullshit. They don’t want to see me in that [1999 VMAs] outfit. First of all, if I was still with my record company and we were still moving — I would update. My music is gonna be updated, my look is gonna be updated. You just update.”
It was an eventful week for Nicki, as she attended fashion shows by H&M and Rick Owens alongside music and fashion stars like Alicia Keys and Michele Lamy. She also partied with supermodels Winnie Harlow and Jourdan Dunn at a Balmain after-party, where she danced, twerked, and wined along to Drake and Rihanna’s “Work.”
Before heading to Paris, Nicki filmed two music videos. One of them was with Future for a yet-to-be-revealed collaboration and the other was for Jason Derulo’s “Swalla.” An apparent leak from that video surfaced on the web Friday (March 3).
All of this was happening while Remy Ma dressed for her funeral “services” after releasing the scathing diss tracks “shETHER” and “Another One.” It’s still unclear whether Nicki will respond to her new foe’s verbal assaults.
