We don’t mean figuratively blue, Nicki Minaj is literally painted blue for her Vogue photo shoot in the latest edition featuring the majestic Adele on the cover. Nicki is certainly not one to shy away from a new, or outrageous style; she did dress as a red nun at the Grammys after all. What do you make of this look though? Is she channeling Smurfette or Beetle-juice?
Nicki has retained her signature pink curls and donned a sexy pink ball gown complete with long gloves to match her all-over blue hue. She has definitely made a name for herself as one of the craziest fashionista out there, with multiple personas and looks. Yesterday we spoke about the academy’s issues with Sacha Baron Cohen for wanting to walk to the Oscars red carpet in character. Nicki is very different to Sacha, but they both are stars who love embodying their characters and should we be stifling that for uniformity and conformity?
This vision of Nicki straddles both high glamor and quirky signature Nicki IMHO. I’m glad to see that Nicki hasn’t lost her own sense of individualism, even on the pages of Vogue. Nicki is outrageous, and I can’t think of anyone else that could pull off this look and still actually look glamorous. To me, she is more Beetle-Juice than Smurfette, but she could definitely be either.
What do you think of Nicki’s blue Vogue spread?
